I thought this would be relevant here since these characters are quite popular in this game.
As you know, the demos for both Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance and Sly Cooper: Thieves in Time hit PSN last night, although the latter is currently only available to PS Plus members. Luckily I still had a leftover 1-month membership from my copy of God of War Saga, so I was able to get both. My thoughts:
I found Metal Gear Rising a blast to play, and I've barely even played any Metal Gear games (yes, please throw rocks at me). There was an already gripping story from the get-go, and I was impressed at the sheer fluidity of the combat, in terms of both gameplay and visuals. Blade Mode worked quite smoothly, and you can see how accurate his moves were represented in PSASBR. I was on the fence about this game for a while, but now I'll definitely consider picking it up.
Thieves in Time was also great and really hearkened back to my PS2 platforming days of old. The visuals were crisp and colorful and the gameplay solid, although seemingly a tad simplistic after years of playing PlayStation's more realistic offerings. Overall, though, it was a really fun ride and I can see the game getting much deeper as you progress through its story.
Has anyone else picked up these demos, and what are your thoughts on them?
I also never play any Metal Gear Solid game. Bring on the hate!
Sly demo goes free for all next week and then the week after we get the full thing. I am also downloading MGR as we speak and have pre-ordered both MGR and Sly 4... they basically are the only games in February I care about
