1UP-Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Preview: Connects the Series' Past With a Radical New Future

1UP:Yesterday, I finished Metal Gear Rising Revengeance at a private event held in Santa Monica, CA, but iron clad restrictions say I can't tell you about anything past the third chapter. Not that you'd want to hear it anyway, since the game is best experienced spoiler-free. The story takes place in a tumultuous post-MGS4 world -- one bustling with crazy mercenaries-for-hire and private military soldiers forced to cope with the fallout from the events surrounding the Sons of the Patriots plan. Recapping the finer points of Metal Gear's fiction can lead to confusion, especially given the series' habit of bouncing between a sometimes wacky, sometimes serious tone, but none of that hinders Revengeance. In fact, developer PlatinumGames appears to understand the nuances of MGS4's exaggerated worldview, and they've married its eccentric story arcs and character tropes to a well-made, over-the-top action game. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360)
