Overall, I thought Microsoft’s Press Event to be a little disappointing. Unlike last year, there were no shock announcements, no big game reveals and nothing quite like the impact of Natal’s announcement. Rebranded Kinect, we got to see a few of the games for the system – and they largely pander to the casual crowd.
None of the retail games shown really wowed me – bar one. Metal Gear Solid: Rising from Kojima Productions. It looks to have taken elements from Afro Samurai and refined them, resulting in a gorgeous, fluid action game that gives Ninja Gaiden a run for its money.
No word on release date, but it’ll also be making its way to PC and PS3 when it does launch.
Hit the trailer after the jump!
