On paper, Left Alive sounds like a fantastic video game. With beautiful key art from Yoji Shinkawa on display, as well as a director who helped produce the Armored Core series at the helm, all while being a stealth-action game set within the Front Mission universe.
Stealth! Wanzers! Great art direction! How can you mess that up!? Well, as it turns out, Left Alive is just another example that things can still go terribly wrong regardless of how many cool concepts or people you have working on them.
