GR: "Can Kojima and Platinum Games deliver on the promise of a Raiden-focused action game? With two talented, but stylistically different studios on the job, what could possibly go wrong?"
its not that bad , is it ?
It seems to be a love it or hate it game.
I'll be playing this for a while. I'm pretty sure the Platinum is out of reach, though.
Another complainer of the difficulty. Is it really that hard to block? I found it simple in the demo once I got used to it.(took 15 mins)
yeah me too
It was really hard for me. I couldn't block the whole demo and it was frustrating as he'll on higher difficulties.. But this isn't my type of game, so I couldn't knock it if I'm not familiar with it
Ive read a few of the more negative opinions and the compliance are genuinely to parrying not consistent (which is not true), too difficult, and too short, not a metal gear game. I have yet to see a negative review that actually holds any weight or credence.
Then you probably haven't read playstation life style review, as they seems to have legit complaints about the game: - Horrid camera; - Awful parry system (w/ both parry and attack assigned to the same button); - Ridiculous story not worth following along with; - Invisible walls; - Bosses, grunts, even supporting characters are bland and forgettable; - Lifeless enviroment; - VR training doesn't offer any real training and is not worth playing; - Too linear, with no exploration; - Upgrades have little effect; http://www.playstationlifes... according to them, the whole game is an mess!
Then again those are the same kind of sites that found the ridiculously easy DmC good enough , with gameplay depth and a good story . It should at least be consistant for the sites to be at polar opposites gamewise as opposed to the likes of IGN whom love almost everything . Still i have to chuckle at "- Too linear, with no exploration;" as if their darling had any exploration
"No dodge mechanic, hit-or-miss parrying" there IS a dodge mechanic "Can't switch weapons on the fly" You can use 2 weapons at a time like Darksiders "Goofy, wasteful stealth mechanics" For an ACTION game the stealth is very well implemented This reviewer sucks
agree doesnt know what he is talking about. Like those DmC reviewers : Best DMC yet LMAO
Yeah, but does it have real time weapon change?
do you need a weapon change when you can -change your blade type -cut anything that isn't in the level boundary ?
wtf? Some scores are awful high, some scores are awful low.
MY score is awfully low. Boring game. 5/10
The parrying is fine. Sick of reviewers who give games crap scores because they suck at it. I gave it 4.5/5 - its brilliant. http://n4g.com/news/1176420...
yea too many reviewers dont know how to play this game **hold my hand this game too hard ** and these moron reviewers get paid too play games lol if you know how to play this game you will have fun nice review btw
Ugh. Disappointed at how terrible it appears to be :(
Leave it to Platinum Games to kill franchises. Glad this flopped.
Add Ninja Theory to the list.
So far from what i have read those who learned how the parrying system & blocking works in the game has enjoyed it. Those who have not learned the parrying & blocking system in the game have hated it. I'm not gonna mention the camera cause most hack & slash games usually have issues with the camera cause of its fast paces nature & the camera failing to keep up. I like Platinum Games & the type of games they make. They are over the top, stylish & for the most part all about fun. Had it with Bayonetta, Vanquish, Anarchy Reigns & even though i have not played the full game yet MG Rising looks to be the same.
