I write about Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance at GameDynamo, here’s a brief blurb:
I’ve been waiting a long time for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. It stars the maligned hero of Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, Raiden. I’m probably one of the few people who thought Sons of Liberty was an incredibly unique experience, an experiment questioning the ramifications of a digitized world through the gameplay. It was almost like a philosophical thesis playing itself out in the battles between Raiden, Arsenal Gear, and Raiden himself again. Back then, a lot of players bought Sons of Liberty to play as Solid Snake and were disappointed by the unexpected switch to Raiden. This time around, Raiden is transparently the hero, especially as Solid Snake’s story was so neatly wrapped up in MGS4: Guns of the Patriots. Revengeance is an amazing experience, even without Old Snake at the helm.
