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 ?

ftwrthtx1978d ago

It seems to be a love it or hate it game.

ftwrthtx1978d ago

I'll be playing this for a while. I'm pretty sure the Platinum is out of reach, though.

Double post

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)

dgonza401978d ago

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

Chuk51978d ago

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;


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

Hanso1978d ago

agree doesnt know what he is talking about.
Like those DmC reviewers : Best DMC yet

Knushwood Butt1978d ago

Yeah, but does it have real time weapon change?

Redempteur1978d ago

do you need a weapon change when you can
-change your blade type
-cut anything that isn't in the level boundary ?
