When I saw the first trailer for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
, I was skeptical. Now that I have watched every piece of media for this game, including this latest gameplay video, Platinum Games has me hook, line and sinker. Take a moment to enjoy this video, which is over 4 minutes long so when you think it's over, just keep watching for one more scene.
Now maybe it is just me, but the enemies in each Metal Gear Solid
title were part of the charm. Vamp, Sniper Wolf, Fortune, The End, the entire Beauty and Beast squadron, and of course Psycho Mantis, these villains were all given background stories that helped flesh them out for the brief time they were on screen. Judging by this video, that tradition appears to be continuing. That and Monsoon looks like some really interesting character design. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
will be cutting soon, as it arrives February 19th in North America and February 21st in Europe.
