Metal Gear Rising takes top spot in Japanese sales charts

It seems Metal Gear Rising has had a successful launch in its country of origin. (Industry, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3)

The game was also on the second spot in the UK, by the way.

So this is why Kojima said Ground Zeroes might not sell well but Rizing does. Can't wait to play this game. The demo was very fun. Cut,cut,cut!

It was second to crysis 3 in the UK with a difference of about 5000 units, without having a PC version like crysis have. So it´s selling very well, despite the though competition.

And it's a PS3 exclusive over there.

Can you believe that Raiden is now cooler than Dante?

Who would've seen that coming!?
Baka-akaB  +   702d ago
Truly a DO's & DON'Ts for character makeover in both cases

The game is a masterpiece with some easily fixable flaws. The more you play, the better it gets. Halfway through Very Hard and loving every minute. There is some really great design and enemies that are really out to get you. It's so fun.

Guess it's "Rising".

Nah but seriously it deserves it's place being at the top. Such a good game...

Im going to pass on this game. It just doesn't seem stealth action or tactical for my Metal Gear tastes.
MacDonagh  +   702d ago
Are you not a fan of hack and slash games?
DS36  +   700d ago
No I really dislike hack and slash games. I'm afraid to say this on N4G but, I don't even like God of War.
Baka-akaB  +   702d ago
Its a fair reason , as it's not a stealth game at all , truth be told .

Doesnt matter if he likes hack and slash games or not , maybe it's just not what he seeks from a Metal gear title .

I think MG;R is indeed a really good game.
It just got alot of hate early on (where's Snake? Kojima's not on it. Where's the stealth, etc.), which poisoned people into believing that it won't be any good. I'm personally enjoying it;
Cool fresh gameplay & design
Replay value
Graphics are pretty good, could be tweaked
But yeah, it is an spinoff, but it does it well.

Play it as a P+ or HnS fan. MGS fans will be disappointed. The last Chapter ties up the story very poorly.

A really fun game that deserves to sell well. It had addicting gameplay, great music, and good voice acting/cut scenes.
