Meh at best.
23 January 2015
Summary: Definately a change of pace from the previous iterations of Metal gear. The details in the graphics are amazing, but the game itself is lacking. It takes on a definite hack and slash feel as you mash the x button while traversing very linear levels. The story is overused and the character's personalities are campy at best. You almost want to laugh at the level of cheese in this game. If you're hoping for something like the last few games, look elsewhere.
Summary: Fun gameplay and mechanics to learn at your leisure with 2 additional campaigns to play at your leisure with another male character and a robo-cat campaign as free DLC. I bought the "Grey Fox" DLC for the Cyborg Ninja - Grey Fox costume and have been using that look ever since. Basically, this game was played a lot by the people who made it and they also knew what they were doing while making it because it shows how much care and polish has gone into this game as far as...
Great fast paced action, not at all a traditional metal gear title

Summary: This game is campy, exciting and loads of fun. You can enjoy it with absolutely zero metal gear knowledge (although it helps to pick up on references). If you buy this expecting another metal gear stealth type game you will be dissappointed although its fun for what it is. Far from a perfect game and there's quite a learning curve but once you get going it works pretty well. Action packed with high octane moments but a fairly lacking plot.
Summary: Awesome Graphics. Great Gameplay and Depth. Interesting Story invoking some great philosophical thought on war. Replayability. FREE Meaningful Campaign DLC (on PSN at least). At under $10 buying this game is a no-brainer whether you've played Metal Gear titles in the past or not. This game is so underrated it's stupid. Buy this game now, you will not be displeased.
Summary: Going into it, you know it's a Platinum game. And Platinum is known for balls-out action games. Boy does Rising fit right in there. The combat system works extremely well, the graphics are quite nice, and everything runs at an excellent framerate. The story might come off as trivial and dumb, but you have to go into it viewing it as a parody and deconstruction of the Metal Gear Solid mythos.
Summary: Great Game! I love it. It has great graphic, unique gameplay (thanks to Platinum Games & Hideki Kamiya!), and those who love Raiden would definitely love this game. It is not similar to other Metal Gear games as it is not a stealth genre but rather than a full action type. The control is quite challenging and to execute some movement you need great timing. For those gamers who love challenge, this would definitely suits your list.
Summary: Purchased this on sale as I eagerly await the release of MGS5: Phantom Pain. Spiritual sequel to Hideo Kojima's acclaimed Metal Gear Solid 4, Revengence reimagines the gameplay as a hack & slash featuring everyone's favorite cyborb ninja, Raiden. The game still offers up the series' trademark philosophizing but it's more cocky and cavalier, not as mournful as on the Snake side of the mythos.
Summary: After Metal Gear 4 setting the bar so high, this version was a weak installment. While I did enjoy the swordplay and fighting techniques, the novelty became old, and I ended up button-mashing to beat every enemy. Most of the bosses just came out of left field, with some never being introduced, so I ended up not caring about any of them. There were a few villains that appears throughout the game, but their fights felt anti-climactic.
