Showing 1-10 of 44
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: 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.
Summary: I am a big fan of Metal Gear Games; although, Rising is more of an action/slasher game then stealth/epionage. Admittitely I have not given this game much of a chance because I have recently gotten addicted to Fallout NV. I will pick it up and play through this game when I am ready. Pros Heavy Metal Soundtrack (f-ing sweet) Chopping People with swords Cons Blocking is difficult to get used to.
Summary: Please note I have the normal and limited editions of this game. I have not opened the limited edition, but can tell you it's big and hefty. I can only imagine how cool the goodies are but I don't want to devalue the set. On to the game review: I'm officially torn with regard to my opinion of MGR. On one had I love Platinum Games. They are responsible for two of my favorite games from this generation, Vanquish and Bayonnetta.
Excerpt: Game: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Format: PC, Xbox 360, PS3 Price: £13.42 (Amazon UK) The Metal Gear name has a legacy behind it. The original Metal gear released on the NES in 1987 was the first game of it's kind. Stealth is the key to success over gunning down everyone in your way.
Pros: Great gameplay, Awesome soundtrack, so many good ideas pulled off really well
Cons: Can be diffcult at times but can lack replayability later on .
