Excerpt: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review Price: £19.99 Developer: Platinum Games Publisher: Konami Platforms: PC , PS3, Xbox 360. Japanese games don't get released very often on PC, and when they do the ports are all too often clumsy, rudimentary things. It's a sad state of affairs, as it means PC gamers are missing an entire culture of gaming from their history, and their experiences of bona-fide classics like Dark Souls or Resident Evil 4 may have been tarnished by a...
Conclusion: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is really quite good on the PC, both in the presentation and gameplay departments, though a strange departure from the Metal Gear Solid series. In the end, it's a fun game that hopefully will carry some of its elements into future MGS titles.
