    @feeg86 If you love these type of games then there aint much better out there. System's unique but once you get the hang of it, it's seriously awesome. And the story well....it's Platinum games, so expect batshit crazyness.

    Only minuses are as they said in pretty much every review, camera can be a bit of a dick, but it's not nearly as bad as something like Ninja Gaiden imo and it's a bit short, though this is one of those games you'll want to get through on harder difficulties so. I personally also found the locations to be a bit drab. But all in all, this is one of my fav games to come along in a loooooong time.

    I haven't purchased a slash em up since the original DMC to be honest mate and I was dead set against this game until I played the demo and I'm open to the different spin on the MGS universe. Off work for two weeks so will be good to dick about on a fun game.

    So far I think it's not quite as good as Bayonetta, but I AM really enjoying it. The fighting is very good once you get the parrying down, but it's easy to get overwhelmed if you're not careful.

    Blade Mode and Zandatsu are showing no signs of getting old.

    It seems that enemies hit harder and are harder to avoid than in other games of this type, but that's balanced out by the fact that most enemies can fully recharge your health if you kill them correctly.

    The world is going mad. Me? I'm doing fine.

    Best I've seen is 33 online. That was simply games. I haven't been to a shop since its release.

    Really enjoying this so far. Feels as slick as a PG title should be. Found the parry system one of the easiest things to grasp, and I'm in love with chaining spine-rips together.

    Listened to a few of the codec calls too and they are freakin' hilarious (especially Doktors taste in "adult" cinema..."

    One thing though, and something I really am struggling to understand. How/why is Raiden wearing high heels? I mean, I know he's a short chap n'all but can't he just lop enemies off at the knee to make them shorter instead?

    How are you supposed to block or avoid those gorilla type enemies grab moves?

    All the eurogamers who actually play with each other on xbl rather than just post pseudointellectual pc handwringing bollocks on the forums, love the shit out of biggy.

    @rivuzu it's so he can hold the sword with his feet.

    @kinky_mong run away or do defensive offence.

    @kinky_mong You got two choices, either you run and jump, or you use the side step technique you buy in the skill part of the upgrade menu. Essentially, instead of parrying you use x + square at the same time and steer left, right or back and you can evade holds or other moves you can't parry.

    @Rusty_M Well, yes, he can do that with them I suppose. Though personally, I'm taking the non-aggressive route of countering every single sonova with a parry and raking in the Zendatsu. Not even learnt any combos yet like I had with DmC.

    He's quite tough. It really is a perfectly timed parry that beats him. He'll kinda flash a red cross up on screen before attacking. You can use that as a guide for when to parry. You'll at least avoid the damage. Then when you start learning to read his attacks, you can parry late and counter him.

    Dear god, I thought hard mode wasn't really hard at all and thought Very Hard mode couldn't be much worse...I was wrong...so very, very wrong.

    That part of the game reminded me of this straight away

    Oh and can anyone think of a game character more infuriatingly cunty than George?
    I honestly can't.
    At one point I thought there was going to be an option to let him die, and it was going to be the easiest decision I've ever made.

    @captainrentboy I thought they were going to give the option too, or at least let me slice....but nope. I thought he was pretty funny though, there's something about the word "skunt" I dunno XD

    Fucking dog thing keeps battering me FFS. Can't work out the parrying at all. How do I know when to press? Is it as soon as he glows red or do I time it with when I expect his attack to hit?

    Time with the hit. The X is a warning.

    The latter. The flash is just a warning that an attack is coming. At the very least you'll be able to block it.

    I've dropped it to easy. Despite completing the demo, the fight against the Metal Gear Moo really had me over a barrel.
    The last thing I need is to get frustrated with a game, and I'm really loving it now.
    Second play through will be on normal, I'll be ready for it then.

    Maybe I'll need to drop it down to easy too. Get the hang of it.
