+Steep learning curve with the combat system, but very rewarding once mastered
+I ****ing love Wolf
+Political satire in the story gives the plot more substance
+Very interesting characters, even if they aren't as complex as others in the series
+The storyline has really epic moments
+Cut-scenes aren't obnoxiously long like series tradition
+Slicing mechanic is awesome
+Destructible environments leads to pretty cool in-game moments
+Lots of customization and upgrading options for Raiden
+QTEs are not overdone and have interesting results
+Animation is fluid and the graphics are fantastic
+Dialogue is deliciously over the top
-Parrying system is imperfect, yet integral to the combat, leading to some frustration
-Most bosses can be exploited and easily beaten, but the last boss feels super cheap
-Inability to change difficulty after starting the game will irritate those that want a higher challenge once they realize how easy it is to exploit almost all the bosses and deter those that find the game's combat system too hard to master
-Shaking the left analog stick to get out of the "dizzy" state feels bad for the controller
-Only seven levels, and the last three levels feel rushed and short
-Generic level design and environments
-Slow down is common during more hectic battles
-VR missions are not fun
-Raiden's voice. Sometimes he sounds like Batman, sometimes he sounds like a whiny little kid
-Dialogue is mostly good, but there's a lot of hand-holding exposition as well
-Camera is wonky and leads to cheap deaths
-Poor targeting system results in confusion and aggravates the camera issues

Verdict:

Rent it

It's a solid rental, but I have seen nothing worth replaying the game more than once.

I didn't really have a problem with lock on, its just that if you're in a corner you'll get royally ****ed and that's not cool. And yea, the VR missions kinda suck. The dlc ones looks promising though.

I'm still glad that you didn't put this on the F*** it list though, since its one of my favorite H&S games.

wrong already went in depth on the 360 boards version.. Anyways this game is a buy and a lot of your negatives are plain wrong.. and lol at putting this up against your DmC version.. things just dont add up

MGR has slowdown as a negative and DmCs frame rate hardly breaks half of MGRs? lol wut.. Then you say the bosses in MGR suck and DmCs are praised.. First I heard this even from DmC fans

"-Inability to change difficulty after starting the game "
