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.
Pros: Fast, stylish, and technical swordplay, Outstanding, energetic music, Upgrades and unlocks incentivize replays, Blade Mode is smarter than expected
Summary: What's that, you say? A robot wolf? 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.
Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Blade Wolf DLC is fun but ends way too soon

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...
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.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance unsheathes an action-packed, yet imperfect, experience (review)

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.
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 quotien...
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 cam...
Conclusion: Revengeance can be supremely entertaining, but little of that actually has to do with the game’s Metal Gear connection. In fact, as an overall experience it doesn’t feel bolstered by the Metal Gear name, perhaps even being constrained by it.
Conclusion: "You'll really get a sense of the playful, collaborative relationship between Platinum Games and KojiPro..." "...Blade Mode is such a novel concept that it never becomes dull." "...too often do [environments] feel like a barebones playbox." "..
Pros: Revengeance feels like a Metal Gear game, The flashy, stylish action, The slew of extras that will keep you coming back for more
Cons: The lack of character development for the boss villains, The unreliable parrying system, The barebones environments
