Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review - Xbox Reviewer

For a developer to completely change the foundations of a fan favourite gaming franchise is a task that should never be taken lightly, with fears that it might swiftly bite them in their metaphorical arses. That being said, Konami are clearly happy to give the middle finger to my previous notion, taking the Metal Gear name, previously known for its reconnaissance and stealth gameplay and opting for a game filled with ferocious sword play and well, lack of any kind of stealth.

This review was just mehh. I'm sure he was joking when he said he didn't know if raiden was a female. In the opening paragraph he talks about the game hardly having stealth then goes on to say you have 2 options to approach combat. The other problem is his inability to grasp the defense system. Its not such a big deal that the game doesn't have a block button its designed that way to force you to think.

I agree that the camera in this game can be downright horrible. There was barely a mention of the games story, or the length of the game, or the replayability, or the vr missions. Over all the review was just OK.
