So Metal Gear Rising has been out a little over a week now and I was super excited as any fan of the Metal Gear Solid series should be. It features the most hated Metal Gear character in the entire metal gear universe, Raiden. I being a huge fan of MGS2 I do not mind the character. Raiden is no where neer as bad ass or compelling as Big Boss or Solid Snake, and is quite the whiner at the start of the game of MGS2. With that said I still never understood all the hate for him.
Raiden now has his own game in his own style Metal Gear Rising stemming from the events of MGS4 and is quite enjoyable. From cutting pretty much everything and everyone to tiny little pieces to intense action, MGR is quite the ride and should be enjoyed by all MGS fans regardless of your feelings towards Raiden.
