Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance | Stevivor.com

Reviewer Steve Wright writes, "This year, we’ve already been treated to two games that are a bit different from what we’d normally expect, and both are hack-and-slash titles. When Capcom decided that Devil May Cry needed more of an American influence, they went to Ninja Theory and westernised franchise to create DmC. In Konami’s case, the stealth-between-cutscene gameplay of the popular Metal Gear Solid series was cut away (pun intended) to go in a new direction with Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, an action-oriented title featuring its cyborg-ninja protagonist, Raiden. While Capcom’s risk with DmC seems to have paid off, were Konami as successful with this familiar-yet-not property?" (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360) 8/10
