I am a rather say a more appreciative on the other metal gears, this one to me just focuses on dynamic action/adrenaline inducing, the game is like any other typical hack/slash game, short burst of storyline but very often, kinda like a game play, then cut scene, game play, then cut scene, off and on. (Psst: Love/Hate love perhaps?)

I have mixed feelings about this game, I mean it was fun at some parts, but it is so repetitive! Thank goodness it was only 5 hours because I don't know if i could take anymore of this game. What you do in the first level is the same thing you'll be doing in the whole game! And the story came together at the end into a pretty decent story.. I still felt lost with the transition from Raiden getting his butt whooped to him going to Russia then some guy blows himself up, and now he is in the sewers of France...? (are u following this...) The game shines though with some of the amazing stunts and action sequences in the cut scenes, but that brings me to another problem the cutscenes are long!! Its ok when the characters are doing some cool stuff but some are just talking and talking and talking. For an action game there is alot of talking, and I guess they were trying to touch on this really big question on why people do what they do, but they didnt manage to give any real meaniful answer except for the cliche bull you'd get from a superhero tv show cartoon. One cutscene that really upset me was the cutscene in the middle of the last boss fight was way too long. Speaking of boss fights it was all good until the end.. I have never played a game where the final boss was so ugh.. I was done by the time I got to that boss I couldn't even play the game anymore I was so tired of the same things, and not to mention I was falling asleep bc it was just that boring..., but its not a terrible game, and I did have some good moments, a few months from now I will doubt I remember much about this game though.. but hey its only about 6 hours of your life, so if you're interested give it a play!
Metal gear rising REVENGEANCE is a fun but frustrating action game, this is mostly due to the fact that the camera sucks and parrying can be difficult to do. Given the story's short length, I only recommend renting this game.
