It only took me 3.5 hours to beat the game, but I enjoyed my time with it, and if I were more patient, I'd probably play it again to mine all its unlockables.
Cutscenes look great and tell an OK story, interesting but also derivative, and told better elsewhere.
Levels are kind of plain and too straightforward.
For an action game, they try to get you to do stealth, which I don't understand. And for me, the stealth wasn't so great.
As another review said, they don't tell you how to do some basic control stuff. I didn't know you could dodge until I was at the end guy. I also lucked into having my health refills do so automatically.
If you like Devil May Cry and Ninja Gaiden, this one is worth playing, but just don't expect greatness.
I'm sorely disappointed in this game. It is NOTHING like the Metal Gear games. They should NOT have marketed it as a Metal Gear game. I waited in eager anticipation for the release of this game only to be shocked by how different it is. The story is no good, the graphics are not what they could be and the action never changes...you fight the same way the whole game...Don't buy this game.
