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.

Pros: Fast, stylish, and technical swordplay, Outstanding, energetic music, Upgrades and unlocks incentivize replays, Blade Mode is smarter than expected

Excerpt: Player(s): 1 Extra Features: Download Content If you've been following the development cycle of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance then you'll know that it was first revealed in 2009 under the name of Metal Gear Solid: Rising.
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.

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...
