So I played this late last night and thought it was pretty cool, but had a hell of a time with the camera, especially when doing the slow mo slicing.

Has anyone else played it and had similar issues? I actually went into options and changed the camera inversion but it didn't help. I was looking forward to this game and thought about buying it, but as of now the controls and camera are broken if u ask me.

It was about as bad as I thought it was going to be. I originally wanted to like it but as soon as I saw some more demos I saw it was nothing special. The demo confirmed this and I canceled my $45 preorder from Newegg. The fruit ninja stuff gets old real quickly.

I Enjoyed it, camera was a bit wonky here and there, but it wasn't anything game breaking. Only thing I was really annoyed by was parrying, which I felt would've been better if there was a designated button for it as opposed to left stick+light attack. That and it made me realize how overly accustomed I am to a roll button in games that games without one just feel...kinda dated. I'll get it on the cheap like I had originally planned, but was about what I expected.

Fucking camera. Otherwise liked it...not enough to get it until it's 20-30 bucks though.

Feels weird to only have MGS middle chapters + a side MGS story + Metal Gear 1 & 2 on the 360, then having this come out. Jumping around in the story necaise not every chapter is available is not something I'm a fan of.

Nice, I actually didn't know about locking the camera.

I actually thought the demo was badass, but the camera issue detracted from the whole thing.

It is interesting to me that part of the charm of Japanese titles is that there is a difficulty curve and that everything isn't dumbed down. Part of the adventure and mystery of gaming is figuring it out on your own and perhaps struggling until you stumble upon the right way to do things...I dunno, maybe it's just me.

I thought the game was horrific and cancelled my pre-order. It's Metal Gear, I was expecting to be blown away and now the game feels like a God of War type slasher clone. I thought the left stick blade control was wonky also. I have a decent enough backlog to not buy this game full price.

Didn't like the demo at all. Camera is terrible especially when fighting the gekkos. There is stealth in the game but they left out the ability to crouch or climb ledges?! Anyone want a hack n slasher should just wait for God of War Ascension.

I thought it was so so but not terrible. I'm going to cancel my preorder and wait for around 20$ range. If people are pissed about the changes to DMC I can't wait to see the reaction to this one.

How is that a troll post? I have never done such a thing. I really disliked the game. I had really high hopes and pre-ordered the CE and guide ahead of time. It just didn't blow me away like a MG game should. How is a troll post?

Honestly, it being Metal Gear to me is a reason to not expect to be blown away. I was looking forward to this, because I had hoped it would tone down the awful, overly drawn out story and focus on the action (which has always been of good quality). But it is too close to God of War and for pure action, and that will be better.

For the life of me, I have never gotten why people think the Metal Gear story line is so good. I enjoyed the first one in Solid (and from back in the NES days), even the gaps in reality. But with two it went down into the toilet, got slightly better with three, then plumbed new depths with four. Sometimes I think people confuse plot twists and complexity with good writing. Ocelot has a grafted on arm controlling him, really? Snake swallowed his smokes and they came back out fine since they subdued his stomach acid? That whole virtual reality thing? At times I think when Kojima hits writer's block, he just makes weird crap up to get around it. It all seems very fan-fiction. Not too far from Lucas on the Star Wars prequels or the Wachowskis on the Matrix sequels.

On the intro beach, you can get stuck by destroying the steps.

I don't know if that's awesome or stupid.

You merely press RT/R2 and ninja run up a wall to get out.

You're not alone. I feel the same way about the series now. MGS1 was interesting. I liked the essence of MGS3 a lot — especially the ending —, but not the goofy, immersion killing theatrics that some characters displayed. Portable Ops had a good storyline which was also the most tame.

MGS4 just went way too far for me. Couldn't enjoy it and it ruined the series for me. MGS2 I can hardly remember aside from the laughable scenes near the end and the cool intro.

You know, the times I've shared that opinion in the past elsewhere, I usually get jumped by the fanboys who scream "But, but you just don't UNDERSTAND it!11!!!". I understand it just fine, it's just stupid. But, more recently, it seems people are actually allowing themselves to admit how bad the story is in the games and the flaws. I guess the longer it goes since the last game, and other games come out it becomes easier see the problems. Or maybe the fact that they are doing this spin off has cracked the armor.

As someone who's never been a fan of the series, this was a game I wrote off entirely. Then I played the demo and put it at the very top of my GF GameQ. It was outstanding, IMO.

He's not trolling. He's 100% correct. The game IMHO is a failure to the series. I own all the games and I am a huge Metal Gear fan. I also have liked Raiden since MGS2 (unlike most ppl) But jeez...this game just seems bad. Probably because it's not being completely made by Kojima Studios

I will add the best thing in the entire demo was the kitty!! :3 XD

I like how this one black guy manager at my nearest KFC rejected the chicken and told the employees to make me some new chicken. He understood how us black folks like our friend chicken fresh and not hard.


I love me some fried food. I eat friend food all the time and I'm still super skinny. I can eat all the friend chicken and other unhealthy foods never getting fat.:D

I agree. It's a disgrace to the Metal Gear name.

Plus they're ruining Raiden. He was normal in MGS2 then MGS4 made him emo and now somehow he's even more emo in this.

I'll take DmC and the new Dante over this garbage thank you very much.

you are a pillar of the video game/gaming community.  

Thanks you are truly a pillar of the community!

 

It's because of pillars like you, I remain in this community.  Thank you!

 

Spoken like a true pillar. The community sends its many thanks.

 

How dare you speak to the pillar of our community that way. If he says you're a closet vita fan he knows what he's talking about.

The action sequences are also so over the top its annoying. Remember the trailer where he THROWS Metal Gear Ray? It's idiotic! Remember how tough it was to beat all 25 of them in MGS2 but now apparently they are inferior to him :lol:

Also interesting article by Kotaku this morning in relation to the game: http://kotaku.com/59...s?post=56849707 I want to give this game a chance...but it has everything going against it for me personally

I'll pick it up when it's $15 or less.. it reminds me a lot of Shinobi on PS2.. which is not good because it's a Metal Gear game, but whatever.

Also, when you cut things into more than 150 pieces, the game slows to a crawl
