Rising is obviously a huge departure from your traditional sneak and peak metal gear game play.
With that said be prepared for a fast pace hack and slash game. You really need to be prepared to REACT quickly to situations around you especially during combat or else you will pay the price.
The learning curb can be steep for some, it also may turn away a lot of casual players who enjoy God of War type hack and slashes. This is not a game where you can just jump in swing your sword everywhere and expect to progress. It takes quick reactions, smart movements, careful planning and execution.
You will not REGENERATE HEALTH!! In order to gain health you have to perform Zandatsus which is basically a precise execution of your enemy using blade mode. Some enemies may drop health after combat but don't really on it to save you.
YOU ARE WARNED! take the time to LEARN and PERFECT the combat system or else you may not enjoy the game. Don't let the learning curb deter you! This game is fantastic once you understand the game mechanics.

ACTION. This game has it and it delievers it perfectly. Not since Bayonetta have I had so much fun. Though the story is only 4 hours long, it is totally worth playing. The last boss was a pansy, but once you figured out his attack pattern, it wasn't that bad. Played this game on easy and still found it challenging. I would definatly play this game again.
