I was impressed by the Metal Gear Rising demo
Originally I didn't know what to think of the game, when not much was said about it and then learning it was given to Platinum Games I thought great another failure. I was wrong, the gameplay reminds me of an old school game that gave you the tools but said I'm gonna come kick your ass which I'm a fan of cause everything is skill based, no room for crybabies that keep dying and take it out on their innocent controller.
It felt like a breathe of fresh air honestly, the reputation of Metal Gear has always been about solid gameplay and I think Rising takes it up a notch.
Cutting up a cyborg and healing yourself with their innards never gets old
