Take a Slice out of the MGS Franchise With Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
New Gamer Nation
7 March 2013
Conclusion: Revengeance is one of those rare games that manages to completely change the way you feel about something you love. If fans were told that the next Metal Gear game was an action-based hack-and-slash, they would have surely scoffed at the mere notion.
Excerpt: Hideo Kojima has declared that he is comfortable with third-party developers creating spin-offs and side story titles centered in his Metal Gear universe, but would have to maintain complete control over the core titles.
Excerpt: If you watched any of Raiden's fight scenes in Metal Gear Solid 4, you probably wanted to play that game. Sure, sneaking around as Snake is always fun, but watching Raiden slice and dice Gekkos was a whole different level of impressive. Well, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is that game.
Excerpt: The development of what was once called Metal Gear Solid: Rising has been a tumultuous one. First announced at E3 2009, Rising was shown in a simple teaser trailer with a tagline of 'Lightning Bolt Action,' and stating that 'Raiden is back.
Conclusion: Revengeance only falters in its overall length. There's plenty of replay value, of course, but this is one of the rare times when gameplay can't quite overcome the lack of a meaty core experience. Still, this is a game not to be missed, folks.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review - 'Swordplay has never been this much fun'
19 February 2013
Summary: Once again Platinum Games conjures up an action-packed masterpiece. Swordplay has never been this much fun.
Pros: Captivating cut-scenes and cinematic sequences, Blade Mode adds an innovative new mechanic to the hack 'n slash combat, The frenetic pace and challenging enemy encounters can be exhilarating at times
Cons: Generic level design, Shifting camera angles can leave you disorientated during combat
Excerpt: Snake’s tale came to a close in Guns of the Patriots, but apparently, there’s no shortage of aspiring power-hungry tyrants in the Metal Gear world. Enter Raiden, the cyborg ninja that everybody loved to hate back when he starred in Sons of Liberty.
Conclusion: In less capable hands Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance might have been a one note-tune absent of compulsory depth. Under the direction of PlatinumGames it feels closer to a sirenic orchestra.
