Dissapointed in the upgrade skills, i didnt expect the sword moves to be all there is in the demo but thats maxed out so quite dissapointing to me.
But I do like the staff and the big sword, I hope its good.

If Ninja Gaiden Razor's Edge wasent announced for ps3/360 i would have high thoughts for this, but since its coming, this will be a filler until April for NG, cant wait any longer!

I've played this game and its average, looks like a 2007 game and plays ok but nothing to shout about

People are going to be disappointed when the finish the game in 4 hours, and at least 25% of that is cutscenes or codec. The gameplay itself is awesome which makes it all the more disappointing

It lacks variety and depth in combat for the genre.
After seeing the full game and playing the demo, its like i already had my fill with the combat...demo had all the moves which is very minor few and nothing special in the full game that makes you go "wow".

The game will be good for pure MGS fans since it has alot of MGS references, but as far pure action games go, its average at best with alright combat.
Oh and...its quite QTE heavy something i didnt expect and hate with a passion.

VR missions are too specific, they wont even let you use maxed out Raiden in VR missions which is dumb.

Though the game has NG+ after the tutorial.

One thing i hated the most was the enemy boss Sam with red katana blade does some insane awesome moves and i knew you would get his sword at one point. But I even saw that in use as what a complete utter crap.
Raiden STILL uses his own sword moves like his regular one and you dont gain any new moves that Sam did, like flaming blade...etc.

Unlike Ninja Gaiden were each new sword you get new type of moves and combos for it. Like Dragon Sword to Doku's Kitetsu (god i love that sword).

Its dissapointing after seeing the full game, no wonder my hype decreased after seeing the Boss weapons and Skill upgrade trailers.

Fuck all this static, the game is scoring high across the board and rightly so and NOBODY is saying the combat is a weak link in fact it is being touted as one of the best in a long time, the blade mode is insanely fun.

Yeah I said it all along, the team up of Kojima/ Platinum was the perfect storm for a game about an androgyne cyborg ninja and it seems I was right. I guess you can't please everyone but you need a fun allergy to hate on this game.

I am already hoping the Kojima/ PLatinum partnership bears more fruit, the Rising games need to be their own offshoot franchise. Or maybe a game set in the era of MGS1 about the Grey Fox character...

Combat isnt a weak link, its solid...but it lacks depth and variety to go back to and i dont see the "omfg" people are going crazy over. There is only 2 weapons worth mentioning, staff and the big sword that is useless and incredibly slow.
The Sai's are nothing but a grapple move while the boss who uses it can go in and do alot of combos yet Raiden cant do shit with it.

The staff is the only sub weapon that really was well thought out in moves aside from the sword.
Even when Raiden gets a new sword he STILL uses the same exact moves while the boss who had it is doing completely different moves and even better ones, its a big tease and a middle finger to the player since its a cosmetic change and nothing else.

One of the bad reps NG3 got was because of the alot of QTE in bosses you had to do to finish them and even within combat, yet this game has just as much, even points were you are forced to walk like a drunk handicap in a long distance and are injured that you cant skip a few times, yet the game is getting high scores.

The blade mode is a nice thing, but it breaks the flow of the combat too fast and I honestly got bored of using it within end of my first playthrough of the demo.

The game is getting obviously too high based on Metal Gear universe and title, Metal Gear references and the fact Raiden finally gets a game of his own since MGS4 jawdropping cutscenes, exagerated animations and cutscenes that wows people something Platinum Games is good at.

A guy like me who focuses soley on this genre cant be fooled easily since i get wowed by wide variety of weapons that actually are useful, alot of well thoughtout and deep movelist for each weapon that isnt minor nor useless gimmicks, and a good reason to replay the game to unlock stuff i can use in the game for gameplay.

Also Raiden is NOT a ninja, even Ryu Hayabusa is closer to being a ninja.
They use the word ninja for Raiden as an excuse just so they can have a katana shaped blade for him and let him do acrobatical movements thats it.

I was super hyped for this game, but as closer to release and the full game walkthrough showed up it died out since i cant see myself enjoying this.

But Metal Gear/Raiden fans will definitely love this.

... so basically it's one of those games that actually has good gameplay for a change but just not enough of it ... damn that blows
