My impression led me to believe it is the "learn to Parry" game: once you do that, you'll mostly do that throughout the game to win.

I like it but was too easy for me.
looks a lot better on the ps3 but runs a lot smoother on the Xbox.
Preordering it for ps3.

Yeah, I pre-ordered it for PS3 as well - it looks so nice but I didn't know about the smoother-running on the Xbox.

The demo was fairly easy but remember there's going to be harder difficulty modes, "a New Game +" I think, and also the combat will be about being fast and fluid rather than just aiming to kill everything, so I think will all that in mind the game will still be challenging. Looking forward to it!

Hopefully it won't just be a case of "Learn to Parry". Then again, the combat reminded me of the recent Batman games - stylistic, artistic and very fun. The Batman games' combat gets pretty easy once you have nailed it, but it doesn't stop being fun. Hopefully Rising will be much the same.

I've pre-ordered it for PS3 too. It's one of those games where I am keeping my expectations low so hopefully I am pleasantly surprised. I know I will enjoy it for the gameplay and Metal Gear-ness even if it is easy, linear, etc. But I'm pretty sure I will enjoy it regardless and anyway, makes a nice Metal Gear filler until Ground Zeroes is out!
