| I haven't played Solid but this is amazing!
Where do I begin with this? Metal Gear Solid is one of those franchises that if you haven't heard of it then you've either been living under a rock for 20 years or you're so disconnected from playing stealth games that you don't know about it's most popular franchise. I thought this would be the best place to start because I've heard different things about the series, most of them glowing but also with a few different complaints such as the plots getting convoluted towards the end. I decided to instead go for the hack 'n' slash because I'm more accustomed to those games than stealth and by god! I'm buying the original MGS as soon as I see a copy if it's as good as this.

The plot is that Raiden, a cyborg ninja (who's design makes him look like he's wearing stilettos... Weird!) fails to protect a head of state from other cyborgs when the region was actually going pretty well all things considered. Raiden loses an arm and an eye in the mix so he's given a better body and stops the terrorist group from destabilizing regions to profit from the wars.

If there is a single complaint with this game it's when Raiden suffers from PTSD for all the lives he's taken. There's nothing wrong with the scene but he goes from PTSD, flipping out and when he goes back to normal he's perfectly fine with cutting people into hundreds of pieces... What?! I haven't left anything out this is seriously how it's played out. I really think the game would have been stronger if this scene wasn't played at all.

Okay, now to talk about the fun stuff. Blade Mode. If this doesn't become the norm for hack 'n' slash games or attempts are made then I'm giving up on the genre. It is so fun to either be precise with where to cut or just going insane with the mode. Either way, for that alone, this is worth getting. I also really REALLY love the first and final boss fights, right off the bat the first boss makes you feel like a complete badass, the final one (at least until things change) is so good as well, I seriously recommend it. The story as well, while it's weak in a lot of places I enjoyed it and while I hate the PTSD scene I love it bringing up themes of war and such. You'd think with the goofier things that go on in the game that it bringing this stuff up would be whiplash in tone but it's played out perfectly. That is ridiculous! Especially considering this is the game where you can leap frog missiles in one section.

I'd say this is worth getting. Yes it's goofy, yes - it might not be as good as solid but with Blade mode alone I would seriously recommend this game if you want the feeling of having an unbreakable blade by your side. I'll also say that it might be a little too short for some people's liking - I managed to beat the game in 3 days but I think regardless this is worth renting at least!
