Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review | The Game Scouts

Jon Hamlin: Sherlock Holmes and Doctor Watson. Superman and Batman. Catelyn Stark and Cersei Lannister. Pop-culture has seen no shortage of characters that act as foils to one another. Today, we add the Metal Gear Solid franchise and Metal Gear Rising franchise to that most illustrious list. Solid relies on stealth elements, whereas Rising encourages you to approach combat with reckless abandon. Solid features a main character that is calm, cool and collected, even if a bit conflicted at times; Rising features a seemingly suave, irreverent, fashion conscious main character. Solid is serious in the manner in which it presents the game’s themes and story; Rising is eccentric and frenetic in such manners, and certainly contains no shortage of tongue-in-cheek story moments. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360) 8.0/10
