Metal Gear Revengeance is a spectacular action game. Seriously, this game was designed to be an all-out, insane, thrill-ride with over the top action sequences and they have succeeded in doing so. Not to mention, they also added the codec so you can have fun conversations with your back up crew as well as expand on the story and history of the Metal Gear universe. If you want one of the craziest action games to date, love ninjas and samurais then treat yourself to this game. I love it enough to buy it in the store! Just have fun!
Never has the Metal Gear series been so balls-out crazy and ridiculous. That was to be expected considering that this is Platinum Games we're talking about. For the most part, this wacky departure from the norms of the franchise is a welcome and exciting detour. From the beginning to the end, the game is action-packed, and you'll be screaming along long after the final boss beats the bejeezus out of you over and over again. Not being able to block or dodge takes getting used to, but stick with it, and this is quite an awesome rental, granted that you can bear through its insane amount of sadistic brutality and cheesy dialogue.
Really, REALLY cool free blade; this tech is the highlight of this game, and without it makes for a very boring hack/slash
Cool upgrades and weapons, lots of combos
Very challenging or very easy -- it's up to you
Horrible, horrible, terrible, awful voice talent and dialogue.
Unintelligible story, this stuff makes some sense but it's so boring that I don't care.
Repititive: there is very little replay value in this game.
NOT METAL GEAR ENOUGH.
Konami shold know better than to release a spin off of a sneaking series with next to no sneaking. There are some sneaking scenes but it's so clunky that it's almost pointless to even try sneaking. I wanted to like Metal Gear Rising, but they took it way too far off of the radar for my tastes, and I'm a huge MGS fan.
