Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance - Blade Wolf DLC Review

NowGamer
21 May 2013
  • Conclusion: Blade Wolf isn’t the most essential DLC, but the kind of person that goes through everything on harder difficulties without being hit will get a few hours out of it.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review

  • Summary: Considering its development its a surprise how close " Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance " comes to its original promise. Whatever state the game was in when it reached Platinum Games, they took all the elements that were there and glued them all expertly into place, and if they found a piece missing they filled it perfectly.

  • Conclusion: This game is recommended for both Metal Gear fans and hack-and-slash fans. I also recommend it to anyone who simply likes good games, if not necessarily something with any real emotional impact.
  • Pros: ○ Fast, responsive, challenging swordplay ○ High rate of action ○ VR missions!
  • Cons: ○ Hokey dialogue and plot ○ Cheap boss fights ○ High heels for Raiden?

(Xbox 360 Review) Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

The Entertainment Depot
21 February 2013
  • Summary: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a good game with a great premise and some solid set pieces, but it is done no favors by a poor camera system and an equally poor targeting system. It would be a shame for such potential to go unrealized, so one can only hope there are plans to address the problems in a post-launch patch.

  • Conclusion: Platinum Games knows this hack 'n' slash schtick inside out, and Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is no exception, drawing upon the developer's experience within the genre. While it's no Bayonetta, Raiden's bloodsoaked outing is a superb action title and one that well deserves a place within the Metal Gear legacy. Fancy a slash? Very much so, yes.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

Strategy Informer
30 July 2012
  • Conclusion: Even so, Platinum Games should be commended for a fine effort. Whether you struggle with Metal Gear Solid or love Kojima's creation all the way through, give this a chance. In the same way as Bayonetta, this title flourishes under a combat system that provides players with power. Although there are a few technical hiccups and misplaced inclusions along the way, Raiden's solo offering is a memorable and highly-important addition to the long-standing Metal Gear name.
