This is a pretty fun game if you are into hack and slash titles such as god of war or ninja gaiden. Unlike those games though the visuals can look alittle outdated and there aren't alot of fun collectibles/puzzles. It does however have a really cool slo motion slice and dice move that lets you use the analogue stick to cut soldiers and giant machines into slices kinda like fruit ninja and never gets old. I also like the japanese style music that plays with the action. Customizing your character isn't crazy detailed but it is there for a sense of progression. It's bloody as all heck and in old MGS fashion lots of long cut scenes. Worth a rent.

Once you get the parry technique honed, the combat is really fun. All it took for me to put the game away was an early battle with a helicopter that frustrated me to no end. Which is a pain since I'm sure there are good moments that follow. It's cheap and annoying and I don't have it in me to continue banging my head against a wall when games drop stupid moments like that. Otherwise, it looks and sounds great.
