Konami unveiled official in-engine footage of Metal Gear Solid Delta: Snake Eater earlier this week, in a bid to show off the remake's technically impressive visuals. Crafted with Unreal Engine 5, this yet-to-be-dated revival is clearly hoping to wow in terms of graphics, but the reaction to said footage has been a little more divided than we expected.
From our comments section to social media and sites like Reddit, there are Metal Gear fans who think that the remake simply doesn't remain faithful to the original game's style. We've seen it be labelled "soulless" and "generic", which is perhaps a little harsh, but we can kind of understand where the criticisms are coming from.
Metal Gear Solid 3 certainly had a distinct visual style, but we also need to remember that it was a PS2 title. We never really expected this remake to recapture that exact look when it's being graphically rebuilt from the ground up.
