First of all, if this review were based on titles alone, this game would fail in every single way. Revengeance is not a word… But I digress. From fuck you to bad-ass, Raiden’s journey has been an interesting one and this game is certainly no exception.
Set four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4 and the destruction of the Patriot AIs, the game follows Raiden as a cyborg ninja, working for a PMC company to help bring peace to war-torn countries, until a terrorist organisation (also filled with cyborg ninjas) attacks an African President’s convoy and Raiden is injured in the ensuing battle. He then goes on to fight the PMCs who attacked him and bring them down before they can unleash another attack that will rival 9/11.
