|Players assume control of Raiden, protagonist of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty and supporting character in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots. A key gameplay feature for the game is titled zan-datsu, which involves "cutting" through enemies and "taking" parts from the bodies of dismembered cyborgs and robots. Rising's stealth elements will emphasize Raiden's considerable speed and agility through what Matsuyama describes as "hunting stealth." Unlike the "waiting stealth" of previous titles, in which players remained hidden and avoided combat, players in Rising will instead quickly stalk their enemies and use acrobatic maneuvers to stay out of sight while closing in. This ties in with the game's zan-datsu feature, allowing them to prey upon enemies to obtain weapons, items, and energy.|

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a new take in a somewhat unexplored direction of the Metal Gear universe. We've always known there were cyborgs and soldiers who handled missions in ways that didn't require stealth. Rising gives us a chance to explore things from a different angle while still retaining the same feel of the Metal Gear series and it does so beautifully.
The gameplay is phenomenal. Platinum has a gift with the Hack N' Slash genre and it shows with Rising. The combat is fluid and challenging while still being fun and accessible. The parry mechanic feature heavily in the game and while it may take some time to master for some, it's incredibly satisfying when you pull off a perfect parry and counter-attack an enemy for extra damage. There are certain fights that require you to have a decent handle of the move as well, and if you don't the game will help you out by beating it into you. The combat just feels GOOD. Zandatsu never got old, and cutting up enemies into tiny little pieces has never been more fun. It's obvious that a lot of time went into the gameplay and with how responsive the controls are and how many different attacks you can do, it doesn't get much better. There are fair amount of purchasable moves in the game, from a dodge to a break-dancing attack to a palm strike that sends opponents flying across the screen. Fighting is intense in this game and it requires your full attention, much more so on higher difficulties where the enemies are MUCH more aggressive and block and parry your attacks more often. They even give you different enemy types depending on the difficulty. Imagine my surprise when I started up Very Hard after my first play-through on Hard mode and the prologue tossed 3 Fenrir type enemies at me(Chainsaw Wolves)almost as soon as I started!
Fun Action Title 8/31/2013

I love the way the controls work in this game. You actually use the control stick to move Raiden's sword around, which is really cool. The graphics are great and the battles are intense overall. I would have liked a cooperative mode to play with friends but it's a minor disappointment. Overall I loved the game and would recommend it.
unique game playing expereince! 5/9/2013
Raiden of Metal Gear Solid begins cutting his own path in life in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. We also have veteran voice actor Quinton Flynn reprising his role as Raiden.
I think we can all agree the title is pretty silly. 'Revengeance'? Come on. But the game itself isn't too bad. As a huge fan of Raiden from back in the days of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, I had to admit I was very nervous about this new title that featured Ninja Gaiden-esque gameplay and Raiden's new "dark" persona of "Jack the Ripper" shown in the trailers. I was very put off at first and had to dig around before buying the game myself.
This is a fun game in a nutshell.

I really like the Metal Gear games, yet this is unlike any of the previous titles in the series. You play as Raiden, the gameplay is so fast and crazy. The way you can slowdown time and slash away at enemies is pretty unique. There's a lot of replay value as well, you can upgrade Raiden's weapons and skills. I'd recommend this!
