Digital Chumps: "In less capable hands Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance might have been a one note-tune absent of compulsory depth. Under the direction of PlatinumGames it feels closer to a sirenic orchestra. The cutting mechanic is smartly embraced as Revengeance's signature rather than its limitation, a crescendo earned by appreciating the profundity of its stylish combat. This is actually expected of Platinum, but the real surprise is their respect and dedication Metal Gear’s established doctrine. By any definition, Revengeance is beautiful symmetry."
