I got it from XBL marketplace, not sure if it's up on PSN yet.


i didn't like the demo on my first day, so I understand...It just felt wierd and unnatural at first. After a few tries and I sterted getting comfortable with it, I started really being able to experiment with TONS of defferent combos and special moves. Now, I have been fully hooked on the demo for over a month. Can't stop playing it. I think I find something new everytime I play the thing, it is awesome. As a fan also of Bayonetta, it is really something i am looking forward to impatiently. I feel like a kid that has to pee so bad, but there's nowhere to go, haha.

I agree with this. This is a game that makes you experiment with the moveset. It most likely won't "click" with some people during one play through. You just gotta keep at it.

So before putting down my opinion, here's my credentials: 1000G on Bayonetta, and most of the achievements in DMC HD including DMC3 DMD cheevo. No I didn't play on PS3, because frankly I don't like it much. Not the point here.

I know Bayonetta like the back of my hand, and plowed through DMC1 and 3 just like I did back in the day. So I'm speaking as someone who knows stylish action and is...well, really good at these games.

Rising is stellar. Attempting to play it just like DMC or Bayonetta will only net poor results. This is not a combo game, despite the fact that I am styling on them fools after a couple playthroughs of the demo. This is a more tactical, timing and input heavy experience. You need to learn the parry ASAP, otherwise nothing will mesh well. Then you learn your Blade Dodge and it's utilities and you are getting somewhere. The game is just as technical as Bayonetta but in a completely different manner and I understand why some players without as much experience, will be confused as to how. This is a game about countering and evading before going it for the kill. This is not immediately about creating combos and being super aggressive. Enemy attacks tend to be about landing either one massive hit, or a small combo from mid-range on the field. So your first reaction is actually running up to them and using meat and potato Light Attack slashes to prevent their own attack. And after a while, if you keep doing that, combat seemingly revolves about you trying to group soldiers to hit them with a single combo, or taking hits while keeping the last one up for a quick heal with Blade Mode. But that's doing things wrong. Once you start learning parries and using Ninja Run and Blade Dodge to maneuver, and you start understand enemy recoil and how to punish their own mistakes, you see how the game is meant to be.

The thing is, the game itself will allow us to buy and learn new moves on a continual basis while here they dropped us with a Raiden with tons of moves but no way of knowing what does what. I am still learning new things everytime I go back to slice dudes and mechs so that's that. And there's the thing about enemy placement. I had very different fights depending on how the enemies were on the map, so it's possible to have a playthrough that's smooth as butter, as it is getting rocket launchered to death on a staircase trying to parry a Gecko.

So yeah, Rising's definitely got "it' as far as stylish action goes. The reason I talked about my Bayonetta and DMC cheevos is not to appear boss, or to say that other players suck or anything. It's just that I want to say that I am a guy that knows the genre, knows it's depths and can actually back up that knowledge with actual in-game results. And I can see that depth in Rising. So if you didn't try the demo and see this topic, we'll here's a action game buff that is really liking what's on the table here.

The demo that was released today.


You troll The PSN has not updated ! (that goes for everyone)
Before you come in here with your B.S play the damn demo first!
I bet this troll didn't even know the demo everyone has been talking about was released first with Z.O.E.

Man, this is was a waste of time.


Your post was a waste of time! He wasn't even trolling! It came out on XBOX live son. Quit trying so hard to be a prick.

Yeah, especially with the part that says I downloaded it from the XBL marketplace and not the PSN.


Damn I missed that!
AAhh! that why I hate it when Xbox users come in psn forums!


You do know some people have both consoles right? These boards are more active for H&S games, that's why people come to them.


To be fair, there are seperate boards for the same games on thier respective consoles. I understand where he is coming from.

The demo was underwhelming for me as well. Before I said the game looked like Raiden May Cry, but after playing the demo it's more like Ninja Raiden. The combat is ok. The cutting mechanic isn't as cool as I thought it'd be.

And visually the game is sub par. The Raiden model looks amazing, and so do the bosses. But the environment featured in the demo is very ugly. Like launch 360 quality textures.

When I get the chance I'll be switching my preorder to something else. I'm still going to buy the game, just not day 1 like I originally planned. I'll wait for a $39.99 sale or something. But since it comes out 4 days after my birthday, someone will probably gift it to me.


well this is what can we expect from xbox360 users/no wonder the game it's canceled in japan,and you bought an xbox360?
you guys just don't get it .


I love my PS3, but trying to make people feel inferior because of thier console is silly.

I agree with a lot of that, but I do feel it largely resembles Bayonetta. In fact, many of Bayonettas combo's work in this. Sans Wicked Weave, of course.

Love it. Feels like a Metal Gear game, which was my biggest worry. I thought it was just gonna end up being Bayonetta with Raiden. So glad I was wrong. Definitely pre ordering now.
