Looking forward to this game a lot, and think it will be nice to get to play Raiden more. Not worried about the action part, but I am worried that it will be thin on story and thus mesh poorly with the rest of the Metal Gear universe. The Metal Gear Solid games were all, in my opinion, more than they first seemed and always took the plots in unexpected directions. If Rising turns out to be nothing more than a straightforward sword-based action game without surprises or significant plot events, that would be very disappointing.
I wonder if evasion will be one of the unlockable skills.
I have to say the one thing I don't like about Rising is when fighting multiple enemies (especially if one is an Irving) is that if the enemy is off-screen there's no way to tell if they're going to attack until you're sailing through the air from the hit.
I hope the graphics don't look like Vanquished, that game hurts my eyes when I play. It looks like a faded, CRT Screen.
Still not sure. waiting for the review. The swordplay looks a lot like DMC. Speaking of which, why has everyone knocked that game? As a long time DMC fan, I liked the new game. Its not brutally hard like some die hard fans think it should have been, but it was still good IMO. Anyway, I really hope MGR:R turns out to be a good game. everything else from platinum has been awesome.
I don't understand why people are skeptical about this game, if anything be assured it will be a great action game from Platinum.
@wepeel I'm with you on that one. If it's thin on plot, I will still enjoy it, but I really do hope it's a continuation of the Metal Gear saga.
MGR is good but not THAT good imo:)
@PlatinumPaladin You can perform evasive manoeuvres, at least in the demo anyway.
@KinoDaKonqueror he is taking their power cells to recharge his own, but yea that was a nice angle to be pullling them out lol
@KinoDaKonqueror Ha! Good eye. That does look painful.
@RetroSEAL I am sure that you can't understand this piece of sh..............t.You can play too the game with your hand in your pocket and with the other use the sword to slice a tank.Order some sushi too while you at it.
