I'm a little relieved actually, as long as it's a stealth with swords instead of guns. At least that way it is a different game, and not just a Ninja Gaiden clone.

Jamegohanssj52817d ago

I don't care as I am still purchasing it.


gaffyh2817d ago

True, same here lol. MGS FTW!

Noctis Aftermath2817d ago

Unfortunately i am still skeptical and until i see more gameplay videos i will remain that way.

Natsu X FairyTail2817d ago

Stealth or not. after watching the E3 Trailer. this game was already a MUST BUY.

Raiden is cool again.

MisterNiwa2817d ago

Cool again?
When was he ever cool? And when did he lose his coolness?

Stop saying unreasonable things.

MisterNiwa2816d ago

I'm talking about, if he started being cool in Metal Gear Solid 4, why should'nt he be cool in Metal Gear Solod: Rising?
In Metal Gear Solid 2, he wasnt cool, Metal Gear Solid 3 even made jokes about him being gay, so why should he be cool again?

So either he is still cool, or he had a time when he lost his coolness between completing Metal Gear Solid 4 in 2008 and now.

I am actually even more than a litte relieved that stealth will have a part in the game....

It adds alot of depth & choices.Hack and slash only, can get dull and limited.

I am more of a ICO,Uncharted 2,MGS4 fan than I am of pure hack and slahers such as Ninja gaiden,Devil may cry...

I am happy MGS Rising is looking to have more substance/depth/choices...

Gue12817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

I'm a huge fan of hack & slash games but MGS defines sophistication, mindless gameplay like that (DMC, NG) would only ruin the franchise. I'm hoping for something like Tenchu but brutal like GOW.

MisterNiwa2817d ago

Excuse me, but you thought it was a Ninja Gaiden clone after seeing the trailer?

Sorry but you couldnt even compare a racer to a fighting game if you think that way.

Eamon2816d ago

Yeah, if stealth was similar to the cutscene at the beginning of the trailer then that would be amazing.

ABizzel12816d ago


I don't think it will every be a ninja gaiden clone if they say it's still a stealth game, because Ninja Gaiden is far from a stealth game (even though ninja are suppose to be stealth master).

Maybe it'll be Metal Gear meets Tenchu, which doesn't sound like a bad combination as long as it's the early Tenchu games.

The love the 'choose the way you wanna slice them up' gameplay. While i really wanna have another game just like MGS4, i trust the team at kojima will do a grand job and give a full fledged MGS title.

belal2817d ago

this game only because i am a pro MG fan, MG is my favorite game series of all time, second is uncharted and third gow 3, 4th is GT series and fifth is super mario from super nintendo !!!! :D:D:D

Shane Kim2817d ago

I'm in the same boat. Will buy it because I'm a hardcore MG fan...otherwise I would probably overlook this title.

mcnablejr2817d ago

that its multi-plat. ;)!!

CYBERSNAKE2817d ago (Edited 2817d ago )

To be honest I am, after MGS4, I was hoping Kojima Productions would use that MGS4 engine and make something that really pushes the PS3 to its limit cuz that's what they are good at.

But what from what I've seen from Rising, it honestly looks great and I'm looking forward to it whether its a real MGS game or not.

It is Kojima Productions after all.

Arnon2817d ago

Gameplay looked really good. Interesting to see how well the directional cutting works.

saimcheeda2817d ago

I hope its like Peace Walker but they dont mess up the boss fights like they did in that game!
