Overall, a player looking for a fantastical fight will find Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance a finely honed spectacle with some seriously satisfying action. We’ll ignore the game’s horrible title that only Norm Crosby could fully appreciate.

Parental advice: The ESRB (Entertainment Software Rating Board) after watching Raiden split in half dozens of aggressive cybernetic humans, decided to label this game “M” and that stands for mature — adults 17 years and older need only participate in Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. This adult Fruit Ninja fantasy empowers and rewards players who dismember opponents with often-bloody results. So don’t let your 12–year-old tries to convince you that “Hey, I’m just beating up a bunch of robots, Dad.” The game delivers fast-paced, lethal combat through a hero out to stop pure evil.
