I like this game but its so much different from the older metal gears which I like so much better. I'm more of a shooter player myself. I just wish it was more of a firearm combat game rather then a sword game. Just smashing buttons is a boring strategy to me. However, the story and graphics seems really good. Well worth the rent.
The new metal gear plays very much like DMC minus the grading system of combo's. What I mean by that, is that DMC gives you points for the amount of combo's and variety of weapons you use. MGR doesn't, but it does offer a unique and very amazing Physics system for blade mode that has given me much enjoyment. Though this game holds some aspects of the other MG games it isn't near as long or as deep as the other ones were, but does touch on real world problems such as lack of jobs and social control by the media. Its also very short, to short and not enough places to fully take advantage of the Free Cut Physics that the game offers. A few cars and tree's, but nothing to really take advantage of as far as environment goes.
