Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance (PS3)
5 June 2013
Excerpt: Growing up as a huge fan of the Metal Gear Solid series, I never would have expected Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance to live up to my expectations. The reason being because Metal Gear Rising went in a completely different direction compared to the more slow-paced stealth action series Metal Gear Solid.
Pros: Deep and exciting gameplay; Great music and sound; Excellent storytelling
Cons: Sub-par graphics; Bad voice acting; Mouth movement sometimes looks out of sync during cutscenes
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance – Review (Xbox 360)
2 April 2013
Conclusion: Revengeance tells a great story and keeps players hooked with the visual extravaganza. Blink and you’ll miss Raiden taking down an enemy in yet another impressive way. Few games, if any, have captured the feeling of being a powerful ninja like Revengeance has.
Excerpt: When Metal Gear Rising came across Platinum’s desk, there were already plans for the game in motion. It was originally supposed to tell the story of Raiden’s journey from Metal Gear Solid 2 to 4 , and it even was initially thought up as a side story involving Snake’s arch-nemesis, Gray Fox.
Summary: Overall, fans expecting the next traditional MGS game will be disappointed. However, if you come into Revengeance wanting a new experience and ready to try something new in the series it’s a great title. Action fans will love the game, as the polish can really be felt.
is definitely a game worth checking out.
Conclusion: Slicing through cardboard boxes and containers revealed the shortcut that the developers had taken, no real details to be astonished about. Need; More variation could have made this game even more fun, letting the player fly the planes or driving the cars instead of keeping that to not-playable cutscenes only.
Summary: The Ace Combat franchise has always been "there." It's never really faded from existence but its never really "impressed" in such a manner that it obtained a mass fan base. We are talking about a title here with a cult following. Flight game fans, and some action seekers, but never the type of fan base we see with fighting games, racing games, etc. But Ace Combat: Assault Horizon changed all that for me.
Excerpt: The high octane action, unique combat mechanics and craziness of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance made it one of my favourite games of 2013, so it’s great to see Konami and Platinum Games show some love for the PC platform by bringing Raiden’s latest adventure to Steam. If, for whatever reason, you missed out on this crazy action title for consoles, then you really owe yourself to check out this solid PC port that comes with both DLC campaigns for added bonus.
Excerpt: Watching Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance move through its development process has been quite a ride since the game was first announcement back at E3 2009. Originally, the game began as Metal Gear Solid: Rising and was flaunted with this new mechanic of being able to cut in any direction you wanted.
Excerpt: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a game that was close to never seeing the light of day. Initially titled Metal Gear Solid: Rising, it started out as a title solely developed by Kojima Productions set to take place between the events of Metal Gear Solid 2 and Metal Gear Solid 4; however, the young team struggled with the concept of the free blade and the game faced cancellation.
Conclusion: Ja, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance hat bei mir einen Bonus. Weil nicht nur Metal Gear drauf steht, sondern auch Metal Gear drin ist, hatte ich wahrscheinlich noch etwas mehr Spaß am Spiel, als ihn Spieler haben werden, die mit dem Metal Gear-Universum nicht allzu viel anfangen können.
