One of The Most Outrageous Games...GaryOak2792 | July 26, 2014 | See all GaryOak2792's reviews »
You know the game is good when you are jumping off of missiles, proceeding to then leap over a helicopter and slice that helicopter into hundreds of tiny pieces (Which are conveniently counted up for you to the side).
In all seriousness though, if you are on the fence about getting this game, I would definitely recommend it at it's current price and state. The game is full-on, nonstop action with the occasional cut scene or data codex to progress the story. In my own personal opinion, the story was definitely unique, although I found myself focusing more on the combat and clever jives that the game just throws out at you every other sentence. If you are here for a in-depth, expansive story, you may find your slightly disappointed, that is, until you start slashing things to bits, and you will find that two or three hours just flew out the window without you noticing. Honestly, if you are looking for a game where you fight giant robots and monsters in a poncho and sombrero, this is the game for you. If you aren't entirely sure, buy it anyway. 9/10

Pros -Incredibly fun gameplay -hilariously over-the-top dialogue and music -great graphics and effects -rewarding difficulty -very stylish
Cons -hardcore MGS fans might not like the genre switch -plot is fairly weak
Metal Gear Solid Rising shows that you can have both style and substance, with excellent gameplay and a hilarious over-the-top theme. While Metal Gear purists might hate it for deviating from the formula of older games, Rising is still an absolutely fantastic game.

Throughout the game I loved the game-play, but at times it felt repetitive ripping out spines after spines. Metal Gear Rising's campaign clocks in on average 7 hours which is pretty short for some people. Overall I loved the soundtrack and boss fights, and I hope they release a sequel.
Is an Amazing game, but apart of the Metal Gear SagaCarlosX95 | Feb. 18, 2014 | See all CarlosX95's reviews »
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is an amazin game on his own category, we are talking about a game that not only change the style of gameplay of the Metal Gear Saga, also change the main protagonist, from the silent Solid Snake to the fastest and furious ninja: Raiden.
The game has his own potential in the new category that has entered, leaving behind the tactical espionage action from snake, to a "lighting bolt action"
the graphics are great, even in the minimum, surpass a little the PS3 and X360 versions.
Maybe the most of the fans of Snake criticize the game just because change the genre, but i give it a chance and a like it, even is not snake, it still have that essence.

It is in the true style of Platinum games of being incredibly crazy and sometimes tough! The game does come from the consoles last year and this pc translation is pretty good for a JPN developer on PC. The game looks very nice still and plays well. There are a few bits of clunkiness but it is still worth buying!
