The design of the world that Raiden inhabits is designed wonderfully, with unique characters and locations that are fun to explore and waiting to be cut into little bits. Each character has their own unique characteristic and catches your eye the moment you see them. Each and every one of them are so unique that it just leaves you with a feeling of weirdness and amazement at the same time. The bosses battle is a bonus wonder. Being an all powerful cyborg that cuts up everything with a ninja sword is every boy’s wet-dream, and Rising doesn’t disappoint. Combat is fluid and impressively dynamic with blade mode adding a constant undercurrent of power that seem like you could take on the world. This is one of the games that keeps you pumped all the way.
