ScrewAttack: "Now sure, there are fans out there that will immediately dismiss this as nothing more than some half-brained spin-off to cash-in on nostalgia. Sorry to disappoint, but that idea couldn’t be further from the truth. This is a labor of love that spawned a unique approach to an entire genre, respectively expanded on a franchise in a meaningful way, and is a fucking good time to boot. Don’t let the mediocre dialogue or high difficulty detour you from following through on this journey. Blade Mode and Zandatsu are mechanics that I’d like to see more of from Platinum and Kojima in the future. If Raiden has more battles to fight and wars to wage, I’ll be right there with him on the front lines."
