Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
10 January 2014
Conclusion: Despite its best efforts, developer Platinum Games sometimes gets in the way of its own pace -- especially for those who aren’t into the franchise. However, Rising’s troubles are rarely enough to derail the incredible momentum of an always-entertaining, action-oriented Metal Gear spinoff. Whether or not you have ever enjoyed Metal Gear, this is a must for anyone who appreciates melee-combat.
Pros: Fast, stylish, and technical swordplay, Outstanding, energetic music, Upgrades and unlocks incentivize replays, Blade Mode is smarter than expected
Summary: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance 's Jetstream DLC was a bit of a disappointment. It consisted of mostly re-used environments, similar play mechanics, and didn't really have any bearing on the core plot nor did it enhance the characters in any way. Well, this new DLC also has re-used environments nearly all the way throughout the course of the narrative, but at least you get to kick some ass as a robot wolf with a chainsaw.
Summary: Although a rather short game on the surface, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance was the gift that kept on giving. New costumes, very challenging VR Missions, truckloads of collectibles, and extreme difficulties with arranged enemies awaited fans who spent the effort to get the most out of the game. But for those of you who have saturated all you could in the past few months, a full story chapter for Raiden's rival Jetstream Sam is upon us. It's..
Summary: Four years following the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots , the world is still recovering from the fall of the War Economy, a program created to ensure a constant level of conflict on the globe for the purposes of profit and control. In the aftermath, the cyborg soldiers of the private military companies which functioned as the lifeblood for this system were cast into the wind, searching for a purpose now that the wars they were built to fight no longer...
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance unsheathes an action-packed, yet imperfect, experience (review)
9 April 2013
Conclusion: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a successful action title, and it’s a successful Metal Gear title. Think about that for a second. Such a proposal could have resulted in colossal failure and utter humiliation for Konami. Instead, Platinum Games delivered a frenetically fun, albeit flawed, experience set in a beloved universe — a sexy, slash-soaked side story worth playing for franchise fans and newcomers alike.
Pros: You are the demigod of destruction Playing as Metal Gear mainstay Raiden — the doe-eyed rookie operative turned ruthless engineered assassin — you can pretty much slice and kill anything in your path. Revengeance gives you an arsenal of upgradeable weapons and moves to ramp up your badass quotient. And the combo-friendly gameplay makes things easy enough to dive into. If you’ve played God of War or the newer Ninja Gaiden offerings, you’ll pick it up quickly. But Blade...
Cons: The camera is your toughest enemy Raiden can defeat anything … well, almost. Revengeance’s camera stands as its most frustrating and unbeatable obstacle. You would think that action superstars like Platinum Games could have perfected such a feature, and if you did, you’d be wrong. The title’s camera is archaic and in constant need of your attention. I had to frequently adjust it with the right stick as I carved up countless mechanical hordes. Sometimes things got so c...
Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (Sony PlayStation 3)
1 April 2013
Summary: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance brings Raiden back to the spotlight, but this time does so without stealing it away from Snake. If fans of the franchise take nothing else away from this, it’s that this game is a huge departure from its series brethren and plays more like Bayonetta than anything else. There is a light stealth mechanic, but it’s underutilized, and the game ends up encouraging you to dive headfirst into every encounter you run across anyway.
Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Jetstream DLC is disappointingly shallow
30 March 2013
Excerpt: Samuel Rodrigues, also known as Jetstream Sam, was one of the coolest characters in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance . His smug attitude and impressive sword skills made him worth caring about despite his allegiance to the wrong side. That's why it was pretty exciting to learn that Raiden's villainous rival was getting his own piece of DLC.
Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Blade Wolf DLC is fun but ends way too soon
30 March 2013
Excerpt: The second round of story-based DLC for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has launched, this time in the form of Blade Wolf , an add-on that focuses on Raiden's robotic dog buddy. This latest batch of content actually feels distinguishable from the main game, and it's easier to recommend over the Jetstream DLC .
Conclusion: Bien qu'assez court ( environ 7 heures de jeu en mode normal ), Metal Gear Rising : Revengeance dispose d'une très bonne rejouabilité. Les 7 missions que composent le jeu peuvent être refaites par la suite, dans les autres modes de difficulté et, comme PlatinumGame nous le fait avec chacun de ses jeux, il est possible d'essayer de décrocher les rang S dans tous les objectif, ce qui n'est résolument pas une mince affaire.
Pros: Gameplay efficace et jouissif, Fluide et optimisé, Réalisation graphique honorable, Plusieurs clins d’œil à Metal Gear Solid, La pâte décalée de PlatinumGames
Cons: Pas de gestion de la physique, Caméra énervante, Décors parfois peu fournis, Durée de vie assez faible
