The lights are on
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a game that can be summed up in one word Fun! The game starts off with a bang with a mission that is one of the most over the top missions I have played. While the first mission is full of over the top action it definitely does dull down a little. The game though still manages to be action oriented and really fun. The gameplay is fairly simple and mainly involves just cutting people apart but thats the point of the game and it does it well. Blade mode is extremely well executed and is a neat idea. Killing a enemy with blade mode and then stealing there energy never gets old. The combat is fun but does have some flaws. Parrying in the game is something you must get used to using and takes time to master, also there really is no dodge move that is effective. I spent most of the game mashing the attack buttons because I knew I was going to either have to deal damage faster than the enemy or try to dodge and get killed. Overall though the combat is a blast and never really gets old. The game looks very nice and is your typical Metal Gear style game. Boss fights are unique and fun to play. Once you manage to master the parrying you should have no problem with any enemy including bosses. The story is the worst part of the whole game and manages to confuse most players. It seems to jump from one theme to another and never seems to connect the dots between them. Overall Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a blast to play and is a hack n slash game you don't want to miss. It may not be the most interesting game but you will be having way to much fun to think about the story. I can't wait for another installment in the series.
