Splitkick: Taking place after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4, Rising sees the cyborg Raiden operating as part of a private security firm in a market swamped by part-robot soldiers and AI controlled machines. After a major international incident in Africa, a rival company reveals a plan to restart the war economy that Snake had rid the world of. In true Metal Gear fashion, that involves Raiden facing a gauntlet of bizarre bosses and obtuse cutscenes. The big difference though? Raiden doesn’t sneak, he slices.
