"Though Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance isn’t quite going to reach the heady praise of some of the past games in the series in terms of storyline, there’s plenty to love about this new direction. The action is always exciting and absorbing while the sword-play is refreshing, innovative and dynamic. The cut-scenes are brilliantly produced and the boss battles tense and engaging. Overall, we’ve played through a large part of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance beaming from ear to ear. No doubt about it: Platinum Games is a brilliant developer and yet again we have another amazing game to thank them for."
