”If Revengeance didn't have camera issues this would be the easiest 10 I've ever given. As things stand it's still brilliant, staking out new territory in the genre and adapting certain Metal Gear characteristics so well that it makes the competition look outrageously bad.” - Eurogamer
”Despite its best efforts, developer Platinum Games sometimes gets in the way of its own pace -- especially for those who aren’t into the franchise. However, Rising’s troubles are rarely enough to derail the incredible momentum of an always-entertaining, action-oriented Metal Gear spinoff.” - IGN

Platinum Games is a team mostly made out of ex-Capcom employees who worked on franchises such as Resident Evil and Devil May Cry. Now they've very well known for Bayonetta and unique approach to games. Here it's no different and what we got with Rising is amazing. It's pretty much Devil May Cry on steroids with Japanese insanity with huge bosses and great, unrealistic fun. Cutting enemies to pieces in slow motion is awesome, soundtrack and graphics are great, controls are responsive when fighting, but there are some things that are not so good. First of all is forced stealth, which flat out sucks, because of controls and camera position - it incredibly kills the pacing of this overall awesome game. Second thing that is hard in this game is blocking - you absolutely must play this game with gamepad, because without it you will die a lot. Block instead of being binded to the respective button, it is automatic, BUT you must quickly press the direction button according to direction of incoming attack. It sometimes sucks, because camera is all over the place, but you can get used to it. Just don't start the game on highest difficulty setting and you will be good. Other than that, there is nothing to complain. If you like Devil May Cry series, Bayonetta or Ninja Gaiden, you will more than enjoy this game. Just don't expect another Metal Gear Solid game, because you're asking for disappointment.
This is a high-octane action game in the style PlatinumGames is known for. There is a lot to love. The action is fast and frantic. Combat is fluid and varied. Set pieces and bosses are awe inspiring. The game looks great and runs at a silky smooth 60 frames per second. It is the finest action game you can get on PC.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a great game. It takes the action genre to the next level, with one stunning feature that puts it above the rest: the ability to aim exactly where you want to cut with your sword, and the ability to cut objects exactly where you aim in real time--even in the air. This feature alone made the game worth playing for me, and it's what I waited until release for to try. If that wasn't enough, the game has stunning visuals, and, as expected, the combat system is one of the best ever made. The boss fights are also engrossing and difficult. The only thing this game lacks is a decent storyline and more character development. The story was much too full of politics for my liking. Other than that, this game is a must-play for its next-generation features and ideas, and I hope to see more like it in the future.
This is probably one of a handful of games I've played that I could probably call absolutely perfect, in every way. Extremely fun, sharply designed, masterfully crafted. Worth its tag price 10 times over. Oh, and maybe one of the greatest soundtracks to ever hit a game. A classic MG plot that pokes fun at itself. Why haven't you bought this game yet?
Metal Gear Rising is an action entry into the Metal Gear Solid franchise that has you playing as Raiden after he has become a cyborg. Gameplay has you fighting a combination of humanoid soldiers and larger mechanical enemies, making use of your ability to slow time down and make precise cuts with your blade in order to kill enemies, destroy armor, remove limbs, or to collect healing items from your enemies. During each section of the game you will be graded on your performance, similar to Devil May Cry's style, where efficiently killing your enemies will give you the best results. Kills, high rankings, and stage completions will give you points that can be used to upgrade your characters and your weapons. A variety of other weapons can be unlocked and used in place of your sword (usually similar style weapons with unique additional abilities or shorter and faster blades, like a machete) and a secondary weapon can be taken that will take the place of your strong attack (sai, polearm, etc). You are also able to make use of things like grenades and rocket launchers to aid you against certain types of enemies. The game has great music and boss fights and the story, characters, and humor are what players will have come to expect from a Metal Gear game. The PC version includes content that was added later to the console version including extra VR missions and two shorter campaigns where you play as other characters. Metal Gear Rising is one of the best action games in the last few years and well worth buying.
