Review 1 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
Metal Gear Action is a better word
metal gear as a action game is a major difference in the series and IMO,it needs a change.I would feel that kojima is experimenting to see if a hack in slash metal gear would be worth it.

Mgs for 360? why?
Location: Colorado springs CO
most of the 360 players wouldn't know about the mgs series, ie, they dont know anything about Raiden, and they dont deserve to play it -.- go back to halo

Different and epic, but...
this game seems to be exellent and different from the saga but real MGS gamers love tactical espionage action, i gonna buy this game but the next MGS has to be with Naked Snake or with GreyFox (MGS 1)
Review 4 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
THE MOST DISTINGUISHED OF 2013
Location: Nashville, TN
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
As the title implies, this game is the best of 2013, and personally the best game since Uncharted 2. Graphics are other-world like with extreme detail in the pupils of Raiden's eyes to the color in the torrent of waterfall. This game can be played many, many times after it is done; at least 3 times. (excluding first) and the length is to praise as well: 9-12 hours long. The gameplay is extremely fresh and beckoning to the player, slice and dicing is as new as ever. Even though stealth action is not the main focus there are a few elements, and the new format is very fun and it does not feel repetitive or prosaic, however attention is piqued, Music and voice acting are top notch with overwhelming reality, as the music has a very catchy beat. Only problem is the peculiar camera focus when triggered blade mode, and one uninteresting boss, but overall this game is a masterpiece. So buy it!
First off, I'd like to say something to all these other previews. All of you complaining about there being no stealth, it doesn't say Metal Gear SOLID, it says Metal Gear RISING. So it's not meant to have stealth gameplay, it's a new type of gameplay. And it has Metal Gear in the title, because it has some of the characters from the series. Now that that's all cleared up, let me just say these trailers take my breath away. I honestly can't wait to play this game. I've already paid it off completely and I know I won't regret it. Also, if you're planning on getting this, play MGS2 sometime before you get it. Seeing that Raiden is the main character in this, you should know his background first before he was turned into a "Super-cyborg".
First let me start of by saying DO NOT PLAY THIS GAME WITH THE EXPECTATION OF METAL GEAR SOLID. The game is honestly a great game, but also defines the meaning of a spin off game. The game plays very much like Ninja Gaiden, God of War, Devil May Cry, Etc. Metal Gear Rising is perfect for action gamers, as it does not focus heavily on the story as the Metal Gear Solid Series does, but rather the action sequences. The game may get a little difficult at times, but usually shifts from hard to easy at times. Again, a great game, but do not expect much of Metal Gear Solid to reach this game.
Ok first of all even if the release date was always pushed back i'm still pumped up for this game.. I believe Kojima Productions is doing that so that this game will be technically flawless like MGS 4 which has no(from my experience in 7 playthroughs) or so so few glitches.. Plus i think they are trying to perfect the free cutting system so that us players will have a great time but i'm more looking forward to sneaking and using CQC(if available) to knock out enemies unconscious coz i love the part of MGS games.. But i will also play the slaughter raiden where i will slice and dice all of the enemies in another playthrough.. Really pumped up for this game..

Not the metal gear experience i was hoping for...
Im a hc mgs fan but ive seen the previews for this game and its not even close to what mgs is. In actuality i believe the people at konami are thinking that they are falling behing in these action game titles coming out and want to appeal the new audience, i totally understand that, although this game is freaking awesome i would like to play new classic stealth missions withnthe fun easter eggs that mgs is famous for. either way im going to get this anyways trying to complete my collectionn :D

It just not right
ok this game is going to be epic ik this, but why is xbox getting it. I mean what if halo when to PS3 that how it is it just not right really. I see metal gear as the heart of playstation and is apart of it, like a xbox fan would see halo as the heart of xbox
is just something that shouldnt be done

halo should be on ps3
honestly. i have both systems, ps3 is alot better. almost always ps3 gets exclusive content xbox cant. but in the end they are kinda the same. but i see where your coming from. xbox games are now coming in 3 discs where ps3 only needs one. but in the end, both systems are almost identical. if its a multi-platform game, i get it for the ps3 always. ull see ps3 will get exclusive content. its almost always the case. but i see what u mean. you take our metal gear, give us halo or gears.

He's right you know.
If you're going to dislike on xbox getting a certain game you need reasons. Like if they dumb down both the ps3 and the 360 version just for the 360's sake because it has a hard time running larger, more complex environments. Or because of how seamless the Playstation move works and how it is better applied to the game than kinects.

This Isn't M.G.S (Totally Different Game Series)
Location: Hoover, Alabama
This Is A Whole Different Game Series, I Hear Lots Of People Writing Reviews Like, This Isn't Metal Gear Solid! They Took Out The Stealth! Whats The Point? Well LISTEN TO ME, This IS NOT METAL GEAR SOLID. This Is Metal Gear Rising Introducing Raiden Who Was In A Metal Gear Solid Game But Wasn't The Main Charecter. This Is Totally Different. I'm Sorry If They Are Disappointing You With This But This Is Not Stealth It Is Hack And Slash. If You Want Stealth This Is Definetly Not The Game For You. This Has Nothing To Do With Stealth. I Kind of Like This Idea. If This Gets Tons Of Downrates Then Clearly You Didn't Read The Title.

The MG story goes on without the S!
Im filled with joy to see other people are understanding that this isnt MGS. And they are right, MGS is how I see it "over and done with." If you look at the story of MGS4, Liquid Ocelot, Big Boss, and Zero, are dead. And even SOP system is gone. What more can they do with Solid Snake!? And I don't have my hopes up for another MGS simply becouse every thing that made the story is gone. Even Snake is done with fighing! You hear him say it at the end after the credits!! Im happy for this game coming out, simply on the fact that there keeping the story of the METAL GEAR going! And im in the mood for a good "Hack n' Slash" game other then God of War. But remamber! Even though the story of Solid is over that dosn't mean the story of Metal Gear is!
Review 11 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
Location: Dresden, Maine
I wish they would remake all the MGS series from all platforms to make a bundle pack out of it for PS3 i would love to see even the NES one redone with ps3 graphics i absloutely love the series an have beat them all. i enjoy playing as snake hope theres some playable clone of him, but i think playin liquid snakes back story would be awsome too probably getting ahead of myself but we will see pumped up for MGS:R release

Kojima, the mastermind behind the Metal Gear series, recently announced he was stopping his directing of this game, he handed it over to the people who made "Bayonetta" which doesn't seem like a good idea to me. Kojima is the brains behind the whole series and without him, well, I think the game will flop. Who are half these characters anyways? The guys in suits totally remind me of the Turks from Final Fantasy VII. And that other guy, he looks like a male version of Bayonetta. I like having new characters, but every single character is new, including the voices on the com! A few characters, sure, but this is just Raiden. How will it fit in the storyline? We'll have to wait and see. Anyways, this MAY be the worst game in the Metal Gear series due to the fact that Kojima quit, but we won't know till it is released.

Review 14 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
I can't WAIT!!!
Location: Indianapolis, IN
This game is going to be beast, hopefully as good or better than MGS4. On a side note, I really really reeeeallllly hope they don't lower the quality of this game for the 360's sake. Don't get me wrong, I love my 360, but I don't think they should be getting this game. It feels like it should be exclusive to the PS3 like Halo is exclusive to the 360, but thats IMO. In any case, I hope everybody enjoys this game when it is released, hopefully in fall 2012 :)
The game looks pretty neat with the cutting mechanics. Hopefully it won't slow down everything too much to stop and try and figure out what angle you're going to be cutting through something. People are commenting about the lack of guns and tranqs to not kill people. This is not a sneaking game, the objective is to.. as the trailers put it " CUT EVERYTHING! " so fans of the originals might be a little put off. Hopefully it won't just be another Devil May Cry of War clone with a Raiden paint scheme.

Just listen to me folks
Ok look i have played every metal gear made with the exception of the first original Metal gear and metal gear 2 on the old nintendo I and solid snake were both born at the same time and have grown up together so i know a bit about the franchise :) Points #1.Not to be mean but yes i think that they should only make it for the Ps3 for the simple fact that Microsoft does not want to share their titles with anybody else, yet they want everybody to let them have their titles but at the same time if they dont make it for 360 then Konami and Kojima will lose considerable cash flow thats just fact so in the end they have to make it for all consoles to make a really good buck sad but its true. #2. Yes they need to make this one involve a little more stealthyness than in MGS4 becouse in that game most of it was run and gun if they are doing the type of stealth that i think that they are doing its going to be really cool and you guys will love it too. Imagine sneaking around for a while and coming up on 5 guys around a corner and taking them all out within a matter of seconds while they are trying to shoot at you! Pretty cool huh? Yeah i think thats the way the game is going to be. Not sneek around and take down one guy at a time quietly, but take down several then get out before anybody notices like a NINJA. #3 This game will likely have either no firearms or very few becouse the whole point of the game is to be like a NINJA. #4 Ever since we all saw the first cyborg ninja aka. Grey fox in Metal Gear Solid for ps one i know that i am not alone when i say that i have always wanted to play as the cyborg ninja :) and this game will definately deliver, its the game ive been waiting on for years and something that i have found is no matter what in the end Mr. Kojima always delivers an awesome game even if we find things to troll about :)

MGS1 was not the first one..spoilers careful

Review 16 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
This game is perfect for: hardcore gamers
It’s an extremely solid action game. While not as polished as others in the genre, what it lacks in functionality, it makes up for with personality and blade mode. For a Metal Gear fan, this game's overall universe will be perfect for you.

Hopefully it pans out better then Raiden in MGS2
All though this isn't a direct title to the actual series. It will be a story for fans of Raiden to get to know him a little bit more and his story. Since Raiden isn't a concrete character. Of course Kojimas origin intent of having Raiden take over for Snake in Metal Gear Solid: Sons of liberty but it didn't go over well as not a lot of people liked raiden in part 2. Myself included. No one can ever replace Snake. He is just that good of a character. And for that person who said that's why we don't know much about snake? Probably haven't played the MG and MG2. As a fan of the series, this will be a different kind of experience for me because I am looking forward to the gameplay.
Review 18 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
1-Why the heck does Xbox get this?! No hating or anything but they already have Halo let them play that. 2-This is a clarafication this takes place before MGS4 so therefore Snake is very much alive but he doesn't know where Raiden is so he wouldn't be in this game period (Suckish much) 3-Why no guns/tranquillizers? It is extremely hard not to kill a person with a giant sword. Doesn't this sound slightly Final Fantasy to everyone? 4-Why so long a wait? It doesn't come out untill 2012. 5-Great game I just wish there were more details in the coming months.

Its not going to have alot of guns cause its a cyborg ninja game man! and as far as being final fatasy like in real life an expert swordsman can strike you in several differant spots to render you helpless and not kill you so its going to be pretty realistic as far as disabling opponents goes.

Review 20 for Metal Gear Rising Revengeance
Finally a new MGS Game/No Snake?
Well one of the things im certain of is the fact that this game is going to be great. I only 15 Years old but i've been a fan of MGS since the original Metal Gear, playing everyone since then, I have to say it will be worth the buy. But the thing that gets to me is that it will be for Xbox. Im not hating on the Xbox, but one thing is certain.....the PS3 version will be the best version since its pretty superior to the Xbox in many ways. Lastly, I feel that Xbox players wont be able to truly love the next Metal Gear since most likely they havent played the originals, if they have by any chance, they wont have the MGS4 to refrence like we do.

You're complaining that the series is getting more exposure cross platform? Metal Gear started on the NES not the Playstation. and anyone who would want to play this... has likely played the others. Just because one plays an Xbox doesn't mean they've never played a Playstation in their lifetime.
