Metacritic : MG:R 79% and DmC 86%.....what does this mean?

I haven't played MG:R yet. I've read opinions and it seems fans are somewhat disappointed in this game, and that it has issues.

I played and enjoyed DmC for what is is, it's a really fun action game but it's not really a true to form DMC game.

Anyway, I was thinking about getting Vergil's Downfall DLC, fan impressions seems that it's really good, Vergil's story is interesting and more true to his DMC3 persona, and the platforming crap is faster since Vergil can teleport around. Combat looks solid:

But I really do want to play MG:R. Should I buy Vergil's DLC for 8 bucks and rent MG:R. I heard it was pretty short? That would be financially reasonable for me. Thanks.

It means reviewers suck at parry.

Those are critic reviews some critics (like gameinformer) don't like Metal Gear Rising because there isn't a dodge move (Which there is people are just too stupid to get it nowadays)
If you are 100% sure Redguards are the master race copy and paste this into your signature

It means reviewers suck at parry and don't follow the code of the samurai.

It means nothing. Reviews are personal opinion.

I love both games, but I rank MGR better because I'm a person who likes the high-speed action games better.

This is a difficult situation.

This really comes down to what kind of gamer you are and what kind of experience you want, cause these games play completely differently and excel in different areas.
Neither of these games are perfect, so it's going to come down to your personal preference.
