Metal Gear Rising “Longer than you think”

2 min read


Yesterday, we showed you the image that suggest that Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance would only take about 5 and a half hours to complete. Platinum Games’ Atushi Inaba isn’t too pleased about that claim, and took twitter to clarify the game’s length.









It seems that Revengeance is longer than you think – which incidentally, is what I keep telling the ladies.

Interestingly, in early reviews Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is being hailed as “almost certainly the best Metal Gear game released this generation.”. That’s the bold claim of  GamesTM, who awarded it 9/10.

I’m sold.

Platinum Games has a knack for creating games that are the digital equivalent of a rollercoaster. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is out later this month on PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360.

Editor. I’m old, grumpy and more than just a little cynical. One day, I found myself in possession of a NES, and a copy of Super Mario Bros 3. It was that game that made me realise that games were more than just toys to idly while away time – they were capable of being masterpieces. I’m here now, looking for more of those masterpieces.

    ” – which incidentally, is what I keep telling the ladies” Nice one Geoff…. made me spill my coffee 🙂

  • I’m starting to read some of these articles just for the headings 😀

  • So excited for this game gots ma pre-order ready and some clean underwear. You just don’t doubt platinum games…ever. but that being said, best Metal gear game this gen?hmm. MGS 4 was extremely cinematic, way too little gameplay but still brilliant. peace walker isn’t that big compared to other games in the series but it is a damn good game. If this game is really that good then I can agree with that statement as there wasn’t any other MGS games released this gen.

    So how long is it?

    • Expect 8-ish hours of gameplay (more for trying to get good times, etc)

      • Grant Hancock

        Expect 8-inch…hours of gameplay! hahaha

  • It took me about 4/5 hours just to master the parry system and most of the moves in the demo… and I still couldn’t kill Blade Wolf with a ranking higher than “B”

    I doubt that anyone would play the game for the first time and master all the combos and moves in less than 8 hours.

    And who cares, if you’ve ordered the LE, you can play with your Raiden action figure after you’ve finished the game…

  • Header killed me. Well played Mr G
