Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review | IGN

IGN: "Few action games are as fast, rewarding, and exciting as the insane and imperfect Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance." (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.5/10

I was expecting a 9 from IGN. Oh well 8.5 is very good for a spin-off. Getting the game regardless of the score. They did a very good job!

I love Platinum games and I really love Metal Gear, so this was a day one the minute I saw the reveal trailer. Though I would have loved to see what a fully realized Kojima style game would have been like, the version we are getting from Platinum Games doesn't seem to be a slouch either. Cant wait to pop my copy in.

Exactly what i think. I would love a sequel for this game but in kojima engine with the help of PG. It would be insane >.< . I'm expecting a ps4 sequel though ..

Just shows that a dumbed down hack and slash can get better scores than a technically brilliant hack and slash.

Gamers will vote with their wallets and give these journalists a good kick in the ass!

Game has been pre-ordered!

lol lol read the user reviews for Rising on Metacritic
some mad DmC fanboys LMAO

I hope i get Rising tommorow though release is 21 here in Germany..
fei-hung  +   788d ago
Same here. Pre ordered mine so hopefully it should arrive tomorrow or Thursday.

Diese fanboys sind einbischen doff aber das ist kein problem. Sie machen gut für den "lulz".

I'm kinda disappointed by its length. At least there is allot of replay value though
SAE  +   788d ago
It took me 7 Hours for just the gameplay without story on hard. Just play it on very hard and you will suffer. Try collecting the stuff on very hard. Then Complete the game on Revengeance with S rank. If you managed to do that you will be satisfied.

The challenge is accepted for me. I'm gonna get the platinume !! muhahahaha xD I'm getting crazy lol

people dissapointed it got a 8.5? dafuq is wrong with this world...
Mykky  +   788d ago
The biggest game sites like IGN usually rates games from 7 to 10. Meaning 8,5 is a good game but not something that is truly special.

That is at least how I look at it.
SAE  +   788d ago
And you think ign are special to make their opinion as a fact. It's just an opinion. I for one always wanted a gameplay like this so i'm rating this 9.5 for this generation console..

''Meaning 8,5 is a good game but not something that is truly special''
And cutting everything with a gameplay like that and a story from kojima is not special -.-
Mykky  +   787d ago
You misunderstood me.

I have not played the game and i don't use reviews to decide if I'm buying a game or not. I just shared my point of view on how IGN and other big game sites rate games and in very short what the scores mean.
Root  +   787d ago
Well it's Metal Gear...thats why

People are used to seeing Metal Gear games get amazing reviews, anything below that questions how good the game is.

If it was a new IP, then this would be a fantastic score and nobody would lift an eyelid
Zefros  +   787d ago
Except that this isn't MGS, this is a fun hack n slash action game.
MikeMyers  +   787d ago
Zefros,

You are 100% correct. This isn't Metal Gear Solid 6.

All of those games got below a 9 average as well. This game was never marketed as a Kojima title that continues the series. Was there an outcry for Uncharted: Fight For Fortune?

I'm sure some didn't expect it to even get a 8.5. If it's a fun game then it's a fun game, give credit where credit is due.

Mike

Metal Gear Solid 5. That would be the next MGS game

....you don't even know how many main MGS titles are out lol
MikeMyers  +   787d ago
"you don't even know how many main MGS titles are out lol"

Typical response, no real direct rebuttal because you know once again you're stretching. This game is not meant to be the next chapter in the series. 8.5 is a very decent score, no matter how much you want to spin things.
Kratos_1986  +   788d ago
is this game coming for PC ?
Allsystemgamer  +   788d ago
I remember reading somewhere I the deman is high enough and I it sells well on console they may consider porting it.
despair  +   788d ago
The demo was god awful, does that mean the final product is better?
Allsystemgamer  +   788d ago
What was so awful about the demo? Aside from the tutorial not telling u how to use advanced moves?
despair  +   788d ago
For me it was just boring and a bit convoluted I could see the potential but it played a bit off for me and it looked terrible.
RE_L_MAYER  +   788d ago
That was the final product buddy
despair  +   788d ago
Ah maybe its one of those where I just suck at it, will have to try the demo again as it seems to be getting pretty high praise. Then again I didn't like Bayonetta and people kept on gushing over it.
HiddenMission  +   788d ago
You have to learn the mechanics to really enjoy the combat. Once youve figured out your playstyle you will enjoy it more and more.

Also the final build is much better runs smoother and generally feels mores polished
