Honestly, if you remove the story, I'd give Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance an 8. I've played Ninja Gaiden, and other titles like it. I enjoyed running through a level and slicing up my opponents like ham. It's really addictive. Needless to say, I LOVE "Blade Mode" and just slicing up various items in the levels. The game is really short, which is to be expected with these types of games. The only unfortunate part of the game play is the camera and tutorials. I had no idea I could lock onto enemies until I read it on the internet. This was after I had finished the game! But aside from those small complaints, this is a great action game.
So, why did I rate the game a 4? The story. Honestly, through every chapter of the game, I really didn't pay attention to the story. On the occasions that I did, I didn't understand what this game was trying to tell me. Was this simply an extension of the MGS4 story? Except instead of Metal Gears, it's cyborgs? Or is this about Raiden discovering who he really is? Then I arrived at the last level of the game. I don't want to spoil it for you. Though I don't believe you'd be upset if I did. Everything that transpires is all an attempt to put America back on top. The entire boss fight that explains this to you is like reading a college sophomore's essay on American imperialism. As I was playing, I completely lost all interest in the game. After that, I found the final boss fight to be tedious. I really love the MGS series. I knew this wasn't going to have the same game play elements as MGS, but I expected it to have the same type of quality in story as the others did. It just wasn't there.
If you love action oriented games and slicing literally everything in sight, you should definitely play this game. If you love a good story, or adore the Metal Gear Solid series, I would just let this one go.
game was very hard but when you get the hang of it it's very short my game play time was 4hr xmin there is a lot you can do and a lot you cant one thing i did not like was how low you jump its very hard to kill anything flying and being a ninja i would think you could double jump or something but this is not a game you can just jump into i got killed a lot tell i did all the training and thin it was easy realy sucks not having any tip of gun but a rocket launcher, this is far from the other games so if you think u will see snake you wont they dont even say his name there is only one think they keep from the last game but i will let you see it when you fight your fist big fight,

This game is what's the word yeah I can't describe it in one word. Its awesome and a bit of a challenge at times. I love the combat and the character but the story is weak. I'm not impressed by the graphics however they look a little better during the cut scenes. As I was playing I felt like the game was rushed as in the developers didn't take their time. Furthermore loved the action and all the slicing and dicing. If you love mastering combat games then this is the game for you.
