If it's crap ... We'll tell you
A new Metal Gear game coming out next year wanted others opinons of the game. My personal opinon is that it looks good and is really fun just to cut people to shreads as a cyborg ninja.
i like Monsoon, so you're not the only one.
I like what i've seen so far. I've wanted to play as a cyborg ninja since the original Metal Gear Solid with Grey Fox.
Played the demo, it was... eh.
played the demo, loved it.... but only after i stopped playing and looked up the controls, and learned how to block, dodge, roll and do all the crazy ninja stuff you see on youtube. In order for this game to do well they are going to have to lengthen that tutorial to be more than just chopping up watermelons(was fun but not informative). And they are going to have to relabel them difficultys, so that easy is normal. the game may be too hard for normal metal gear fans, and playing on easy makes you feel like a pussy.
and as far as gray fox goes, kojima did want the game to be about him... but gray fox is dead...
I thought it was pretty lackluster. I dont like the blocking mechanics, theres no real type of dodge mechanic and the lack of stealth is a real turn off
You can dodge. Wide attack + jump.
The game never marketed itself as a stealth game...
Finally got round to playing the demo today at a friends house, and it was more fun than I was expecting. Completely stupid, but fun, when it comes to hacking guys up into twenty pieces and some of the nice combos you can do. What isn't fun was the part where you fight the annoying robot panther thing - the parry mechanic the game kept telling us to do did fuck all, we only came to close to beating it by ignoring it and then we gave up, so my feelings on this is are still basically tah very much, but noo...
Parry worked fine for me and a friend on the boss. You were probably doing it wrong.
