Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance Limited Edition
I will admit that this is a little pricey for what your getting. Especially if you compare it to other limited editions, but I like that Konami tried something different. What impressed me the most is how well everything was packaged! Very secure and tidy. The steel case should be able to fit into anything that can hold a dvd. If you don't like messing with the plasma, it does have a switch to just glow.
A perfectly mediocre hack'n'slash.
I did not really enjoy this game at all, I bought it because I am a huge Metal Gear fan. I knew going in that what I got would not be Metal Gear, but I did not think it would be this. The game has no challenge from any of the bosses except the very last on even the hardest difficulty. Really his only difficulty comes from the overly fidgety blade mode sequences that suddenly don't rely on time, but attempts in his boss fight. Nonetheless if that was my only gripe I would be satisfied, but the plot is as thin as tissue paper with no real continuity from previous Metal Gear games. There are a few times when the game suggests you should use 'stealth' except the game doesn't understand the concept and really, there is no reason, it is quicker and easier to just kill everyone. I beat this game without even realizing I could use healing items until the fourth boss, there is no challenge whatsoever, and despite listening to what I assume was every codec conversation none of the characters managed to endear themselves to me. Boring game.
I think the Limited Edition should come with a special DLC of its own for gamers who are willing to fork over the 149 dollars. The lamp is great but pretty soon it could break or the power gets worn out. A special DLC will definitely increase sale of the Limited Edition for sure. I pre ordered the Limited Edition but feel that there should be at least a special DLC. Europe is getting both the "Gray Fox" and possibly the "Inferno Armor" or the "Commando Armor"
Great Game, Nice Bundle, Bad Price
This LE and game are awesome! My only gripe is that $90 dollars is way over-priced for just a plasma lamp and a video game soundtrack, which will only appeal to the most miniscule segment of the games own fan base . An extra DLC skin or two would have made this a great value, but it looks to me like a bare bones LE if there ever was one. The real value of this, as it is, should be $120 at most. In contrast, though...I am very exciterd about the game itself, and I do think it will be the best Metal Gear to date. I have not ever been so excited for a game that I can remember. I cannot wait to play the full game over and over. It should appeal to fans of the Metal Gear series, Bayonetta, and Vanquish alike. Very, very good video game. Absolutely everything I could ever want in a game so far. I have played the demo extensively and watched all of the trailers I think.
Great limited edition for a great looking game!
The limited edition looks really good, the lamp is a pretty decent size and for the total price, I'm assuming it's pretty well made. The steelbook and soundtrack are great additions as well, though I'd have loved an artbook like Japan is getting or at least have the steelbook be done with Shinkawa's art instead of rendered art. Regardless, I've had my eye on this game from when they showed it off as a tech demo (Watermelon Slicing teaser) When Platinum was given charge for the combat, I was ecstatic. MGS4 established Raiden as a guy who could destroy things and go nuts all over the place, and I can think of very few developers who could handle that type of combat as well as Platinum Games, combat looks smooth, satisfying, and seems to be vaguely similar to how DMC or Bayonetta was, with the over-the-top action and crazy combos Raiden is able to pull off. Kojima and his group still being in charge of story is a plus as well, so there aren't any worries that things won't fit into the Metal Gear universe, or seem too "out of character" so to speak. Unlike a lot of people, I actually really liked Raiden's character and MGS2 as a whole, Rose was the one who didn't sit well with me, and I'm really happy that he's getting his own game and a chance to really shine. I have very high hopes for this game, and my excitement for it increases all the time. It's going to be a long wait for February!
This Limited Edition is a must for any Metal Gear fan, or Hideo Kojima for that matter. This is one of those editions that seem a little too expensive at first, but then you know its totally worth it! I am positive this Limited Edition will sell its pre-orders fast. So, be sure to get your in so you do not miss out! I cannot wait to have the plasma lamp. It will be a nice addition to my other collectibles.
