The latest trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance illustrates exactly why this game looks like so much fun.
First off, I’m not a huge Metal Gear Solid guy. I’ve enjoyed a few of the games and can completely understand why people love them, but I’ve never been a hardcore fan. I think it’s just mainly that I don’t have the patience for most stealth games. I’d rather run in with some sort of robo-katana and slash fools into finite pieces.[youtube http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l8t_k4jiEdY]
I played the demo a few days ago and had an amazing time with it. The combat is very fast-paced and focuses on all the right things. Raiden’s ridiculous ninja agility makes navigating the large environments quick and effective. If you’re a fan of the hack-and-slash genre, there is a lot to love.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is scheduled for release on Feb. 19th, 2013.
