Metal Gear Rising Revengeance Review | Globe and Mail

Globe and Mail: "Bad writing and voice acting, uninteresting linear environments, camera problems, dumb enemies and nonsensical action that is also insanely difficult to combine into a game that is thoroughly un-fun and a chore to get through. It’s enough to send you scrambling back to older games in the series, to get the sour taste of this one out of your mouth." (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360) 3/10

That's what.

The mad reviewer got owned hard, that's what.

He gave Aliens:Colonial Marines a 6/10, yet didn't criticize the idiotic AI in that game.
Temporary  +   544d ago
...scrambling back to old games in the series? what a joke, he obviously reviewed this with MGS series as a frame of reference.

If you judge the game on its own merits, it's at LEAST a 7. I would give it an 8 for sure, just becauseit's so damn fun. It's not SUPPOSED to be DEEP and ENGROSSING like a Metal Gear game.

Retard reviewer, people like him are the reason we have such a disconnect with reviewers.

I was SHOCKED to find out Revengeance is actually a real word.

This review is a joke, the boss battles are very interesting and the gameplay is awesome. This is like No More Heroes but with much better gameplay and it runs flawlessly, on PS3 at least. 60 FPS gorgeous smooth slicing gameplay and it fits well in the Metal Gear Universe.

probley the game looks like a trud wrapped in MGS package to sell millions to mindless fans of MG series
Allsystemgamer  +   544d ago
Uh....playing as a character how he should be played is a bad thing apparently. Once raiden was revealed in 4 EVERYONE wanted to play as him

And it's beautiful for a console game running at 60 fps

This game's combat is just so good, I cant see how people wouldnt enjoy it. Every person that bashes the game has to make a comment like "Not worthy of the Metal Gear name!"

That kind of bias is just so silly ... this is a GREAT Spin-off.
WarThunder  +   544d ago
People actually believe this shitty reviews?....

*facepalm*

" to sell millions to mindless fans of MG series"

Are you sure you aren't confusing Metal Gear Solid with Call Of Duty?
admiralvic  +   544d ago
While I can understand having a different opinion and even disliking a game, this is a desperate attempt to troll for hits. Down voted / disliked.
Saucyknight  +   544d ago
I did think the parry system was a bit hard to master, i believe they should of had a block button and blocking at the right time would result in a parry but whatever, i understand the camera problems he was having and it was a pain BUT i really liked the game for the story, boss fights, unlockables.
Luke_fon_Fabre  +   544d ago
I've only played the first part, but I've found that this game is quite good. I really have no clue why any reviewer would give this anything less than a 7/10.
StrawberryDiesel420  +   544d ago
A reasonable journalist acting professionally should review this game no less than an 8.5/10, it's a quality game that runs great and looks gorgeous.
megalonagyix  +   544d ago
Sorry, I don't even like the MGS franchise, but a 3/10 is ridiculous.
Allsystemgamer  +   544d ago
Someone should stick to angry birds....seriously....all of his complaints (other than the camera) are pointless. The combat is awesome, the story is decent and the acting is not that bad. It's corny ON PURPOSE!
MontyQ  +   544d ago
MGS has been milked beyond milked sony needs to drop it and bring back syphon filter series on ps4 since ps3 didnt see the return of an excellect series imo
darkride66  +   544d ago
What's Sony got to do with this? This is available on multiple platforms, like most Metal Gear titles.

Well, this isn't MGS first of all, so you are wrong.
It's Metal Gear Rising. New series.
neoMAXMLC  +   544d ago
Metal Gear is a Konami IP. -_______-
Baka-akaB  +   544d ago
Yeah if only Sony was listening to you and dropping a game that isnt theirs and multiplatform ...
Knushwood Butt  +   544d ago
Sounds like someone has a hidden agenda.

This is a daft review..
matrixman92  +   544d ago
hahahahhahaa...OK
TuxedoMoon  +   544d ago
This Reviewers issue stems from the fact that he went into the game with the mindset that this game was a metal gear SOLID, a sneaking game. So of course the player wouldn't like it. this is a SPIN OFF! It's like going into Mario kart and expecting platforming and an over world map.

I respect different opinions and not everyone will like the same games. But this is just bad to the point of possible trolling. I disliked Darksouls and Dishonored, but I'd never give those games anything lower than a 6. 3/10 means its UNPLAYABLE and extremely frustrating...like Duke 4ever. That game deserves low scores.
zlpw0ker  +   544d ago
the problem with this reviwer is that he is a hardcore MGS fan that expects it to rely on stealth,MGR isnt stealth,its a hack n slash game,and you cant really expect a ninja to be stealthy,he uses the sword like a man and like the samurai's,he lives by the sword and dies by the sword.

and the reviwer cant really compare a stealth game vs a hack n slash game.

and because he says that the slide move is OP that doesnt mean he has to use it,if people using easy mechanics to beat the game the game is easy for that person.
Baka-akaB  +   544d ago
I doubt he's an hardcore anything . He is just a very poor writer from a site that barely cover gaming .

Even the usual garbage from metro is better

"When I was a little boy, he rated MGR:R a three out of ten!"

Freeeeezieeee pooooop!

I understand how people don't like change but come the heck on! Give it a chance, it's a pretty fun game. I'm on my second playthrough.
A LIVING LEGEND  +   544d ago
3/10 is a little much but I'm somewhere around 5/10.
The game is mediocre drivel
Whitefox789  +   544d ago
Care to do a little more elaboration on that? The only real issue I had with the game was the automatic lock on targeting system. I understand a lot of other issues such as limited movesets for other main weaponry and pre rendered cutscenes; though I let those slide slighty since Platinum made this only within 2 years; Atushi Inaba's last comment regarding the experience was he wish Kojima came to him sooner so he could of had more time with it.

Feel free to send me a PM with your thoughts.
dimasok  +   544d ago
The criticisms are all spot on actually and the game is indeed short as hell. I finished it in even less time than the original 5:30 hours mentioned. Mine read 4:45

But even with these criticisms, the reviewer should have given the game AT LEAST a 7/10. 3/10 is just insulting.
Max-Zorin  +   544d ago
3/10? Are you serious?
fallensniper77  +   544d ago
I really didn't like this game but the score is too low, even for the game being so bad. Well its not bad just not for me, and even though everyone says its so fast and stuff i felt it slow, especially compared to the new DmC. I loved that game do much the graphics were great and gameplay was much faster than rising and MUCH more diverse. One of my main complaints about this game.
