saw some good and bad reviews, i wanna play the game but personally i wanted mgs4 to end all their stories, so im on the fence. i liked the demo though

I guess when you suck, blame the game.

mrprice332129d ago

I mean, when you go to every Revengeance post and troll, I guess that's what you would say in response to a thorough review that points out almost all of the flaws in this horrible game.

SAE2129d ago (Edited 2129d ago )

Saying it's horrible only proves that you are ignorant. Just because you don't like the gameplay or you suck at it doesn't mean it's sucks. The story is from Kojima so ofcours it's good. The gameplay and the AI is challenging , new and it's doing something no other game did before. The only thing you can complain about is the graphics that look good too but can be improved..

If you want to say it's sucks talk with reason. Say the good things and the bad things and don't say it's sucks because it's sucks -.-

I only have to see that he played the game for 5h and finished it.
THATS WHAT I DID WITH VANQUISH on normal difficulty.
I went on playing the game on a higher difficulty level, the game forced me to play more precice and use every ability I had.
once I had a hang on it....


The game just went from great TO UNBELIEVABLE AWESOME!!!

How I know Platinum games, the game shines when you play on higher difficulty.

Actually the reviewer did not play the game and you can tell. There are over ten factual lies in the review...

This is a troll review simply for hits and while I fed it a bit it will be the last time I go the site ever again.

Review Quotes:
1. no reliable way for Raiden to defend himself.

- False you can block and purchase a evade move...

2. Devil May Cry only without the former’s mechanical prowes

- False the combat is just as deep you simply have to purchase the upgrade to skills, weapons and character stats

3. with multiple weapons, each more useless as the last.

- False each weapon provides a new set of combo upgrades while allowing you to tackle different enemy encounters to suite the best approach.

4. The problem with the mode is that Raiden cannot move while using it,

- False press in the left analog stick and you can move...

5. It’s also easy to get disoriented while using the mode, as your natural instinct is to use the left stick to move around and dodge enemy attacks, but this only changes your perspective and gets you confused and hit.

- False the Platinum games have gone on record stating that you are supposed to weaken the enemies up prior to using blade mode...aka that's why they flash blue. Add to that if you use ninja run followed up with a slide attack you can easily go into blade mode and have all the time in the world to attack.

6. It’s the same basic “enter an area, get locked off by a semi-visible arbitrary wall, then fight until everything is dead and move on” mechanic that we’ve seen as gamers since the inception of action games.

- You just simply bashed every single hack n slash game out there...god job boss why did you review this game again...

7. Between the inability to dodge or block and the enemies’ predilection to sneak up on you

- False, again you can dodge, block and parry so yeah did you actually play this game or read some broken reviews and figured you would spew out the same lies...

8. typically boils down to annoying crowd control interspersed with frantic slicing-of-the-glowy bits via Blade Mode.

- Only Mistral has a crowd control the rest are one on one unless you count the 1st part of the final boss. Monsoon is alone, Samuel is alone, Sundowner is alone...with the exception of a few choppers that rarely attack from a yeah.

9. The CG video is heavily compressed on the Xbox 360 version of the game, looking in parts like a low-quality YouTube video.

- False none of the games cutscenes are CG they all use improved versions of the in-game engine. Kojima and Platinum do not use CG for their cutscenes.

10. Two characters, previously on opposing sides of the battlefield, find a common bond, but it arrives out of nowhere and doesn’t feel earned in the slightest. That this forgettable character is further honored in the final boss fight comes off strained and silly.

- Actually through out your encounters with this character which is several times and is the leading villain so to speak actually spends a fair amount of time trying to connect to with Raiden on one level or another. If you had paid attention you would see this.

I'm sure I would have found more issue but I stopped read after so many paragraphs riddled with lies and just plain hate for the game...sounds like you wanted it to suck so you could say DmC was better...and yes a read can quickly pick up on that.

grailly2129d ago

5 hours for vanquish on your first play through? O_O I think I'm somewhere close to 7 and keep ragequiting everytime I try finishing it. I don't remember on what difficulty I'm playing though.

Bubble for you mister HiddenMission

darx2129d ago


You need to relax it's just another mans opinion. And I really wouldn't use the term factual with regards to your list.

belac092129d ago

@Sae, Kojima has nothing to do with this game. The script was written by Koji-Pro and then re-written by PG in like less than 2 months to make it over the top. Every review says the same thing, that the story sucks but that the gameplay is good.

The only ignorant here is you that don't want to understand that people have different opinions. Just because a couple of reviewers are giving 9's to the game it doesn't me that it will be a 9/10 game for me too.

HiddenMission2129d ago

Actually Kojima Productions handled the story then let Platinum give input but at the end of the day the same writer who helps Hideo put his scripts together controlled the stories end product.

...there are several video interviews that confirm this and can be easily found with google searches.

wishingW3L2129d ago (Edited 2129d ago )

@HiddenMission I'm not wrong. You're wrong. Koji-Pro made the story but it was all according to PG's vision because they wanted to make it over the top.

"The vision I had and the script as it was didn't match," so he (PG director: Kenji Saito) had the entire thing rewritten." -

"they discussed from morning til night what the writer wanted to create for a story and what the game director wanted to create as a game,"

So don't try to make people look bad when you're the one that is wrong. The story of Rising sucks because of PG and no one else.

HiddenMission2129d ago


Again go google the video interview and you will see that the ACTUAL writer of the story who was in the interview stating that he had made changes...based on the input of Platinum games but he was still the writer.

Even the quote you provided did not state who rewrote the script.

I did your research for you...lazy is the link!

You tried to imply that Platinum Games did the final script but here you go you are wrong son so step up your game! All they did was change the settings from between part 2 and 4 to after Sons of the Patriots...that's all

This does not mean that Platinum Games said we want our story...all it means is that they wanted to weigh in and have the story sync up with the new tone of the combat...that's all.

So yeah your wrong and I proved it...

grailly2129d ago

I guess it's kind of the games fault if you suck at it, it's like telling people QWOP is great, when you don't suck at it...
it's a legitimate complaint if you think you sucking is the games fault.

still, from what I played the game looks to be good, it reminds me of vanquish, so I can only like it.

mrprice332129d ago

I have 2000 words of criticism at the top of the page going through the good and bad.

BTW, it's *not* a Kojima story.

Allsystemgamer2129d ago

Uh....this review doesn't apply to the version I played. None of his issues bothered me one bit. Sounds like mindless complaining to me.

Energy-HL2129d ago

Not played the demo yet still meaning to give it try, however the original gameplay/trailer of rising which was slower paced looked. The best review of a game is by playing it yourself, just not good on the wallet :P
