This review is from: Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance PlayStation 3
Pros: Lots of things to unlock and keep you busy for a while.
Cut as you will! Tons of different ways to play and raises the bar for the ninja action genre.
Continues and fleshes out more of the Metal Gear lore, the parts where the Snakes are not involved.
Amazing framerate for 95% of the time.
Extra VR missions and rich future DLC to keep you busy if you like.
Cons: Sure, the stealth is weak but that isn't what this game is about. I suppose that will be a con for many people. This is Metal Gear Rising, not Metal Gear Solid. Keep that in mind.
Environments can feel a little flat/bland, I feel they had to keep the FPS near 60 and sacrifice some interesting land.
Controls are not explaiend well enough and tutorials are not obvious but are there, seek help anywhere you can in the menus and codec calls.
Other Thoughts: To me, this is the definition of a $60 game. This is also the most metal game I have probably ever played, it rocks super hard. A close competitor would be GoW III (newegg auto-censor bot won't let me write the full title of the game that Kratos is in, let's try Gord of War III). Platinum obviously worked hard on this engine and they pushed the limits of what the PS3 can do. This game raises the bar for its genre, hopefully other developers will take notice and reply in kind. This game is the logical evolution of the PS2 Shinboi game.READ FULL REVIEW
Pros: great CPU so far, no issues installing either way
fan is completely silent, probably due to the case I got too
Cons: not unlocked, I knew this going in
I once had a fan/heatsink combo whose wires actually started to get shredded by the fan itself and eventually it shut off power after a while so I was worried slightly by how loose the wires were on this fan/heatsink combo that came with the CPU. If you're cautious like me, use a little tape to secure and have peace of mind.
Other Thoughts: I should have waited a week or two for the deal on the 2500K.READ FULL REVIEW
