++Review: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance

On Tuesday, February 19th, Metal Gear Rising Revengeance hit store shelves like a ton of bricks. Anthony pulls no punches as he makes known his opinions on his most anticipated game of ALL TIME… or maybe just this year, but we’re only in February, so, you know, cut him a break, yeah?

Is Metal Gear Rising just another action game, or does it deliver on its promises? With a pedigree hailing from the studios that gave us Bayonetta, Vanquish, and the entirety of the Metal Gear series, you’ll be pleased to discover that it does.

“Its never felt so good to slice-and-dice as Metal Gear Rising Revengeance hits the scene! This over-the-top stylistic-action masterpiece will satisfy even the most jaded action aficionado. Platinum Games and Kojima Productions joint venture doesn’t disappoint!”

This just goes to show that not all titles that get stuck in development Hell with an eventual release are garbage. Platinum Games has, once again, proven their mettle by not only delivering on Revengeance, but by salvaging a formerly canceled project in the most spectacular and satisfying fashion.
