Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Review

- Satisfying combat is familiar yet different thanks to great core combos and the parry system.
- Superb graphics.
- A unique and fantastic soundtrack that is superbly executed in boss fights.
- Many VR missions to challenge.
- Great voice acting.
- Blends the styles of Platinum and Kojima Productions very well.

- Story is ridiculously enjoyable, but isn't very satisfying.
- Despite being fun, combat isn't as deep as it could have been.

- A mediocre camera system that becomes quite problematic during tough fights.
- Almost all fights, including boss fights, play out in a very similar fashion: parrying and counter-attacking.
- A short main game length.

Overall - MGR: R is a great roller coaster ride worth playing at least twice, but due to the short length and lack of a lot of gameplay diversity and depth, there isn't a ton of life in this game. It's a clean and enjoyable action experience, but Platinum has done better in the past with Bayonetta and Vanquish.

Score - 8/10
