Metal Gear Rising Used to be a Stealth Action Game Before Platinum’s Involvement

PSM3 recently interviewed two of the developers behind Platinum Game’s controversial adopted baby Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, where they spoke in depth about MGR:R along with the culture surrounding the Platinum and Kojima studios.

In the interview Platinum Games’ director Kenji Saito commented on how the company strayed from Kojima studio’s original more stealth based gameplay.

Eh, I'm excited for Revengeance as a Platinum Games title, not a Metal Gear game.

Obnoxious_Informer1326d ago

I think that's the right approach. I'm optimistic thinking of it as a good n gory action title ala God of War rather than a Metal Gear.

If only people had that attitude with the new DmC...

Platinum Games is best thing happened to MGR .

You know what else it used to be? CANCELLED!

I like this direction, never had a problem with it, and if you really just want stealth, now you have Ground Zeroes to look forward to. Seriously, go back and watch the scene where Raiden fights all the Gekkos in act two. You'll wonder why you ever thought stealth would be involved in this game.

Yeah, we all knew it was at least a Metal Gear game. Now that overrated Platinum Games has it, it has turned into nothing but a mediocre hack & slash on an attempt to cash-in on the Metal Gear name instead of actually being a Metal Gear game.

Mediocre hack and slash? With the father of modern hack and slash at the helm I think not! Devil May Cry and Bayonetta have the best gameplay in h&s and MGR will be just as good.

the father of the modern hack and slash at the helm, so why does he say on twitter he has no involvement in the game? =)

I was once like you... I still think Platinum Games are highly overrated, I don't see why people think Bayonetta is so great, I think Vanquish is the only good game Platinum have released so far but... Rising is really cool and blade mode adds an extra dynamic. It's all about powering up to slow down time and make those precision cuts to enemies.

If you haven't played the demo, I suggest you check it out.

The hack and slash action suits Raiden a lot better than stealth. It's in good hands with Platinum games, they won me over with Vanquish.
