Different from DMC, but still very good.

mmmbbbb | Jan. 14, 2014 | Review of METAL GEAR RISING: REVENGEANCE

Metal Gear Rising has you playing as the main character from Metal Gear Solid 2, Raiden, and while i wasn't huge about missing out on Snake in that game, I am more than happy to play as him in this game.

The gameplay is similar to other conventional Beat 'em Ups, where you spend most of the game only pressing a few buttons, and killing a LOT of enemies.

While other games, such as DMC, have you using several different moves and combos to juggle enemies in some lengthy battles, Rising has you cutting regular enemies to pieces quickly, and rather satisfyingly. But, that being said, normal combat isn't anything TOO special.

However, when it comes to the boss fights, that is where my opinion changes.

The game simply outdoes the boss fights. From the variety of battles themselves, to the amazing rock style battle themes. The atmosphere is always intense, and you always feel like you're a bona-fide badass, with your over-the-top attack moves.

If you're looking for a game that truly gives you a satisfying rush, then this is the game for you. But, if you're a die hard fan of DMC, you may find this game to be a bit too much of a button-masher.
