Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review | D+PAD

Though the saying goes that you shouldn’t judge a book by its cover, there could be an argument made for judging Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance from its title. Revengeance is a ridiculous word, befitting a game that seems to wallow in the deep pools of craziness that Platinum Games have made their wheelhouse. The Metal Gear series has never exactly made a great deal of sense, and while Hideo Kojima was always wise enough to see the funny side at times, there was also a certain po-faced seriousness with which its narrative was approached, a seriousness that is only ever vaguely hinted at here. (Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, PS3, Xbox 360) 3.5/5
