I just got done playing through the first chapter of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, and one word that comes to mind to describe it is intense. The way the game feel’s with it’s sword play, and the way it connects to the NPC’s, feels superbly satisfying. Hit after hit, gives you a sense of joy when each slash connects. The graphics so far are top notch, some of the best I’ve seen on the PS3. The voice acting so far seems to be very good. Now for some downsides, the camera, is a bit busy. There were times it was angling too low, and as always when there’s a tight space, it get’s confused, and kind of just gives up all together on where to go, thus giving you a bad angle, which equates to getting hit and eventually dying. The music, sad to say sounds too much like generic rock. It just didn’t seem fitting, at all.
This looks like it’s going to be a very fun week or so trying to get through this game. I know I have only played about 30 minutes of the game, but It’s left me with a good enough impression that I can stand behind this game and fully recommend it. If you are a fan of the Metal Gear series, or the genre, do yourself a favor, and pick it up.
