Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
platinium rushed the game, some fact here.

You fight Monsoon at the end of R-03 and his body double near the end of R-04 (I think? It's after the Japanese rock garden, right?), which is probably the longest chapter in the game. Unless you're speedrunning it'll take you a while to get from one to the other. It's subjective. That would've been the better word for it. Some will get there fast. Some won't.
And if we wanna go deeper, we can discuss each person's perception of time...
I feel like this site needs every game to have a seperate board dedicated to complaints about it.
This isn't nearly as bad at DmC's board.
We're not saying the game is bad, but it has noticeable flaws.

Here, let me explain the difference between opinion and fact.
Fact: "You do in fact stop unlocking moves half way through the game"
What you said in your first post: "you stop unlocking moves to soon"
That's an opinion. Not a fact.
Fact: "boss weapons have barely any moves"
What you said: "boss weapons have too few moves" <opinion
Fact: "the last few levels do get really short,"
What you said: "the game is too short" <opinion
You need to learn the difference my friend.
I didn't feel the game was too short. I wasn't counting chapters and judging how long they were individually either. So, I felt the length was just fine. But of course, that's just my opinion.

Yeah, I'll have to say I was not expecting a Monsoon double right after the Mistral double. I was expecting to fight him later. And the last few chapters do go by pretty quickly, but as the guy said above, the problem is they're based on locations, and they wanted to keep with the sense of urgency as well.
Can't really comment on the locations since none of them felt too bland for me. Just really felt like a more action-y MGS4 and I wasn't bothered by that game's locations. I do wish the boss weapons were more than just mere sub-weapons that didn't have much of a moveset (especially the Sai), but I guess they wanted Raiden's blade to be the focal point of the combat.

An even better solution would have been to write a story with better pacing that doesn't get really silly, really fast. I'll be interested to see what the DLC missions add, hopefully they are substantial enough to add some extra meat to the game.
I'll agree to disagree about Monsoon, for me that is too close to be repeating a boss and I usually don't like repeated bosses anyway.
screw internet punctuation/spelling/grammar
you know what it means so dont tell me how to fix it
TruthsEdge posted...They only had one years to make it. They picked up the project in December 2011. They said they wished they had more time but Kojima kept them on the tight schedule. They were no hard feels though.
Gotta remember that half the work on this game was already done before they nabbed it.
Blade Mode? Konami
Boss designs? Konami
Basic enemies? Konami
Story? Konami (Oddly enough)
All Platinum had to do was make the levels, make sure Blade Mode didn't crash your console, enemy AI, and difficulty changes, among other small things.
Not trying to hate though, but atleast a good half of the game was already done for them.
You also gotta factor in that they had to convert MGSRs assets to their in-house engine too.
Volgin, aka the walking human battery with no explanation.
The Sorrow, aka the human reaper who is actually a good guy.
Vamp, the homosexual vampire that is powered by nanomachines, son.
The Fury, aka Ghost Rider upon death.
Solidus, the former president who is actually Doctor Octopus.
All of a sudden a Senator who is really buff is unbelievable?

I feel like you're nitpicking the difference between opinion and fact purely because of sentence structure and dialect. You understood what he meant. Being oddly politically correct just kind of seems weird here.
