I know this is a joke topic, but the thing I would like to emphasize about rising. Is that it is very much in like a metal gear solid game. The environments are open although linear, and stealth is in the game. Not to mention there is a lot of extra stuff, and weapons including rocket launchers, guns, and different types of HF blades as well other weird martial arts super weapons. So if a person wants a traditional hack'n slash then MGR probably isn't the best choice. However I can't in good conscious recommend this game either because it doesn't look that good. I would recommend you hold out for lords of shadow 2, or even consider getting bayonetta 2 if you just want a "pure" hack and slash experience.
