Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

IGN
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
  • Cons: Unreliable camera, regular gameplay interruptions

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance: Blade Wolf

Destructoid

  • 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.

Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Blade Wolf DLC is fun but ends way too soon

GameZone
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 .

  • Excerpt: The Metal Gear Solid franchise has been beloved by fans since its debut on the PlayStation in 1998. It should not be a surprise then that any radical tampering would elicit a negative reaction. This was exactly the case when Konami unveiled Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance.

Test Metal Gear Rising Revengeance

Generation NT
13 March 2013
  • 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

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PS3 Review

About.com
4 March 2013
  • Conclusion: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Image © Konami Yes, it's short. Yes, the story is lackluster. Those will be complaints by haters of this game that are impossible to deny. However, even those haters, will have to admit that there hasn't been an action-based title this fluid and hypnotic in quite some time. It is as lean a game as you'll play this year. Lean in storytelling and lean in running time but also lean in repetition and lean in boring gameplay.

1 March 2013
  • Excerpt: Chances are that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has been on your radar for some time. Announced years ago, the game has changed hands, styles and developers on its road to retail, and like many titles in the same predicament, some wondered if it would ever see release. Finally, in the expert hands of action game aficionados Platinum Games, the Metal Gear spin-off is real and available, and series also-ran hero Raiden is now taking center stage in a way that won't enrage...

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3)

EL33TONLINE
27 February 2013
  • Excerpt: As a huge Metal Gear Solid fan I’ve been looking forward to playing Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance since it was first announced back in 2009. Raiden is a somewhat underdeveloped character in the MGS saga, so having a full game focused on this emotionally conflicted cyborg ninja is an enticing prospect.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

DarkStation

  • Conclusion: Rising opens big and only intensifies from there. The action is amazing and the game is a pure toy box for the slicing mechanic and that is just fine for me. The story is relatively believable within the crazy world of MGS and that might really be it’s only downfall with Platinum Games feeling a little held back by the restrictions of the real world.
