Ok,I've played almost all of the MGS games,& I've been a fan of the series (It got old after a while to be honest),and this spin off was a highly anticipated game for me...But,after playing about halfway through it,I'm not very impressed.
Was this game rushed? It just does not feel complete. It's Devil May Cry mixed with elements of the MGS series.The camera changes randomly during combat & makes fighting so much harder than it should be.
The graphics really aren't that great either..All in all this game feels like it could have been an early PS3 release,or a PS2 release.Not because of the graphics,but because of the gameplay.Plus,the campaign is about 6 hours long. It's not worth a buy at all.Gamefly is the savior when it comes to games like this.
Rent it,beat it in a few days,send it back.No regret of dropping $60 for a game that you won't get any replay value out of.
I feel like this game was rushed,the story isn't that great,and the gameplay really isn't that fun.
All in all,it's an okay game.Not good,definitely not great,but just okay. If you have no other game to play at the moment & you need to kill a few days of gaming time,this is perfect for that.
But,in about a month or so,no one will be talking about this game. It's a shame that a game that was so hyped up ended up being a major disappointment.
Very dissapointing! Story lacks, short game, and I couldn't believe this had the name Metal Gear in it. There are plenty of games similar to this on the market. MG used to be original, in-depth, and used strategy along with action. It's a decent action game, but I feel very let down and I am so glad that I didn't buy it.

I have been a fan of the Metal Gear series since I remember playing Metal Gear Solid on the Psone for at least 10 hours some 15 years ago. This series was known for its stealth moves, and being resourceful in the game. Metal Gear rising did away with that and added a blade mode that, in my opinion, is too wonky. To get health, you have to slice a highlighted mini target on the target itself and trying to move the blade path to said target is a pain in itself. Blade mode takes away from the game. I think this game would be better if it was a move capable game, they do away or refine blade mode, and incorporate stealth, which made the series iconic in the gaming world
