Metal Gear Rising’s Controls Seem Painfully Counterintuitive

Kotaku - Going into Metal Gear Rising Revengance at the Tokyo Game Show 2012, I was sure I knew what I was in for. After all, I have played (and liked) plenty of Platinum's previous titles—i.e. Bayonetta, Madworld, and Anarchy Reigns. Yet, my time with Rising was plagued with a major issue stemming from the game's incredibly counterintuitive controls. Simply put, I could not figure out how to block, dodge, or counter. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3)

Doing something goofy to block - does anyone remember Heavenly Sword, where you can only block by not pressing any buttons and remaining still? lol retarded

Controls were absolutely fine when I played it, and I played the demo without even looking at the controls screen. Learned it while playing :V

Metal gear has complicated controls. Took me a while to get used to 4. But they are good.

took me about 2 years to learn all the tricks in MGS3.

I doubt it's going to hinder my playing abilities in any way. This is a pretty useless article by Kotaku.

MGS controls have always been a little dodgy (apart from 4). The problem they had was addding more controls after every sequel. MGS controls were only OK for people who played the older games, for newer people it would seem really weird.

This. I came in the series with MGS3, which propably has the most complex controls in the series. Took me a long time to get into.

But it works for the fundamental part. Had there been a revolutionary control scheme at that point he wouldn't have to limit himself to the standard dualshock format we have today.
