Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a game where a man in a mariachi outfit dismembers giant robots with his electric sword. What more needs to be...

For many PC Gamers, Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance marks a welcome return for Konami's popular franchise to the PC. But just as significantly it also marks the PC debut of Platinum Games, whose lunatic brilliance shone in titles like Vanquish and...

The environment design is also drab, and at odds with the extravagant combat and characters. It looks nice in places, but there are a lot of sewers and grey warehouses to slog through. Those gripes aside, Rising is a welcome sight on PC. Its snappy, responsive combat looks and feels great, and it's wonderfully insane. Now, can we have Bayonetta next, Platinum?

The PC version of Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance offers more of the insane ninja swordplay that proved Metal Gear can thrive outside of Shadow Moses.

Metal Gear Rising on PC is the definitive release of the game. It's got all the content, better graphics, performs better, and is $30. Sure, some of the issues that were prevalent in the console version are still there, but its an immensely enjoyable hack-n-slash title with a crazy storyline and great boss battles.

Revengeance might talk itself out of classic territory, but it remains one of the most entertaining and mechanically satisfying action games you'll find on the PC. There isn't anything else quite like it on the platform, and for PC gamers it's a great introduction to Platinum's work. Make them feel welcome, because they might decide to stay.

For a port it’s not bad and some obvious effort was put into doing it instead of just shipping it over and slapping things together shoddily. But the lack of a higher resolution, FPS drops during blade mode and no fixes on the original complaint about camera angles being poor for gameplay really knocks some points off.

The bosses have a surprising amount of personality and depth- these are some of my favorite characters in all of Metal Gear’s history. “Jetstream Sam”, in particular, is a fantastic character, and all the boss fights were amazing – they’re burned into my memory and are without question some of the best boss battles of all time. In fact, despite the game’s...

With a full package including the game and all the DLC priced at $30, this is a steal. Even if you’re not a Metal Gear fan, if you enjoy lots of action and some fast-paced combat, you should really pick up Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. You’ll have a really fun time.

Los efectos de audio suenan como deben, y el título llega a nuestro país traducido únicamente en sus textos; eso sí, con algunos fallos ortográficos y de otros idiomas que se "cuelan" esporádicamente en las líneas, y que resultan de veras imperdonables.

By HonestGamers on 70

I'm hearing somewhat varying reports about how well this version runs, but since I can only speak of my own experience, it's a solid first effort from Platinum and the start of what I hope will be a very fruitful relationship. It's fun stuff, PC gamers. Get in on it.

By Metro UK on 90

Exactly as entertaining as you’d expect from a collaboration between two of Japan’s most talented developers, and a relatively good – if extremely belated – PC port.

By NewSanctuary on 90

The answer was a majority yes, leading me to try to explore the convoluted storyline of the Metal Gear series. But after so many Snakes, Bosses, and one too many mentions of nanomachines, I’ll stick to just Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and hope there’s a sequel in the future.

By Die4Games on 70

Unfortunately, it would seem the original camera issues were not fixed for the PC release and there is still a framerate issue especially during Blade Mode but now I’m just being picky!

By IGN on 85

Whether or not you have ever enjoyed Metal Gear, this is a must for anyone who appreciates melee-combat. It’s simple, fast, and clean, with enough supporting content like additional weapons and secrets to encourage a campaign replay – or more, if you find yourself obsessed with the idea of a no-kill run. Just make sure to use a controller for the best experience.

Игра Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance вышла совсем не такой, каким ее можно было бы ожидать, исходя из «родословной»! Вместо «стелса» неизвестного качества, мы получили один из лучших экшнов за последние пару-тройку лет. Вся суть игры в одном кадре Если...

A la limite, PlatinumGames aurait pu nous gratifier d'une suite de combats interrompus contre d'énormes boss dont la puissance n'aurait eu d'égal que leur fourberie, la note aurait sans doute été la même. Les passes d'armes sont ici viriles et...
