    The Metal Gear myth has never before appeared so agile, fresh and youthful, but more than the setting its Platinum's virtuoso coders that shine throughout, the object slicing a marvel of high-speed 3D manipulation. A technical masterpiece, Rising offers a funfair ride approximation of Konami's brooding series, but one with more than enough capacity for the Bayonetta veteran to express their dexterous expertise.

    Platinum Games has done something incredibly rare: honoring a beloved series while successfully broadening its reach into a whole new genre.

    An exhilarating experience that beats home just what kind of masters Platinum Games are at what they do. One of the best action games in years, and one that will stay with you for a very long time.

    A thrilling and engaging experience. The swordplay is fun, and it's really fascinating to see the different spots where either Kojima's or Platinum's signature styles shine through. It also has a wild final confrontation that shows elements of both.

    It's such a shame that the singleplayer takes just a few hours to complete. Because it's a fantastic game to play, probably the best hack and slash title in a science fiction setting. Raiden shows us how cool he is.

    Its shortness will dissuade many, but cut deeper and an innovative parry system impresses. [Apr 2013, p.70]

    For a series known for having some of the most memorable villains and boss fights in video game history, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has some of the most pathetic, bland villains I’ve seen. I didn’t fear them for being ferocious, I feared them because I knew how poorly designed each fight was and how infuriating the next one would be.

    Bringing Bayonetta and Okami developers Platinum Games onboard to develop alongside Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is anBringing Bayonetta and Okami developers Platinum Games onboard to develop alongside Kojima Productions, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an odd, but good game. The story begins with Raiden being a bodyguard for the Prime Minister of South Africa, the game shows what happened to Raiden after Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. Revengeance introduces new mechanics such as the Zandastu mechanic, which can be used by Raiden to replenish his health, which is used by the Blade-mode meter, in which you cut an enemy in an area, and in addition to refill your Blade-mode meter. As for the game play, imagine Devil May Cry or the Dynasty Warriors, but without the over top action and flare, but keeping the deep combat system, and combos. Finally, there is the music and it is amazing. From the Metal-style Stains of Time, to the epic Orchestral-Rock piece It Has To Be This Way, the music is hit very well. Overall, it has a nice length of about 9 hours, which is good for a game that can be bought for about $10, so it deserves he highest possible rating. Expand

    Makes up for Raiden being a complete b*tch in MGS2, he's actually badass in this. Music is really cool too. The campaign is a bit too shortMakes up for Raiden being a complete b*tch in MGS2, he's actually badass in this. Music is really cool too. The campaign is a bit too short and when the story tries to be serious, its a bit stupid considering how silly the story is, but overall a really good game, Platinum fkin rule!!! Expand

    Nice game, Not your typical Meta Gear game though. I would understand if few hated this game.
    The combat system is great and interesting. But
    Nice game, Not your typical Meta Gear game though. I would understand if few hated this game.
    The combat system is great and interesting. But the camera and free blade mode were really annoying. The game sometimes require stealth play. But actually It just doesn't fit in this one. Not realistic to play stealthy while your blade is making too much noise cuting something or someone.
    Boss fights were also annoying. I never understood how blocking is working. this is another thing I hated about the game.
    Back to story. Well, if you aren't fan of MGS then you might not like the story. The story is typical MG typeof story. coupl of returning charactersand lots of familier names.
    Overall it's not a must play if you are MG fan. I just played it because it was free on PSPlus.

    While the graphics and story are somewhat good, the game quickly turns into a mashing machine, becoming boring and frustrating at points, evenWhile the graphics and story are somewhat good, the game quickly turns into a mashing machine, becoming boring and frustrating at points, even more with quick time events in the middle of boss battles

    which seemed good at the beginning, but, turned out to be repetitive and even extremely boring at the end.

    good example of a game that promised a lot, delivered little and bored people half way to death... AVOID.
