Gameplay
Raiden is the main character of Revengence, and the signature stealth gameplay of the series has been sidestepped for a more frantic, hack-and-slash style. Raiden's swordplay is the main mechanic of the game, being able to slice through just about everything through the use of his combos and Blade Mode. Players engage large groups of enemies, wearing them down before slicing them to bits. Raiden skill of taking their energy cores allows him to power himself up, but only if diced at the right moment, at the right time, in Blade Mode. MGR1 Metal Gear Solid 2 follows the exploits of a younger Raiden, who was recruited into the Foxhound unit during the Big Shell crisis. Terrorists have taken control of a massive offshore clean-up facility. They demand a giant ransom and Raiden must sneak in undetected. The game includes the stealth gameplay that the series is famous for. Avoiding encounters is ideal, and Raiden dispatches foes with a combination of hand-to-hand, melee, and firearm weapons.

Location Revegence takes place in a multitude of environments, mostly urban. Raiden hops to different areas of the globe including Mexico, the United States, Abkhazia, and an unknown African country. Raiden is seen exploring sewer systems, major buildings in metropolises, as well as the war ravaged battlegrounds of the more sparse countries. These cities contain a lot of Metal Gear signature features, with the highly advanced technology involved in every process. MGR2 The prologue level with Snake takes place on an Oil Tanker. Metal Gear Solid 2 takes place almost entirely on an offshore facility. The structure is hexagonal in shape and contains a heavy amount of enemy opposition in soliders. Environments are mostly closed off, and if they are outside, are usually narrowed down to walkways with railings. There is little to no outside contact with other structures. Raiden must deal with a variety of soldiers throughout his mission.

Boss Characters The more recent Metal Gear games have always had a large emphasis on the boss team that the main character fights against. These boss characters are usually immensely deep characters with complex backstories and personalities. In Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, Raiden faces off against the Winds of the Destruction, a three-cyborg unit within the PMC Desperado. They include Sundowner, Mistral, and Monsoon. All three of these foes Raiden faces against throughout the course of the game, obtaining their unique weapon in the process. MGR3 Metal Gear Solid 2 includes the terrorist group Dead Cell, a former special Navy SEALS anti-terrorist unit established by US President George Sears. The group was first formed as a small government organization to carry out surprise assaults on alley bases. The members include Fortune, Vamp, Fatman, and Chinaman. Raiden would fight a handful of these soldiers throughout the game. Most of them would parish, but Vamp would return again in Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.

Weapons Metal Gear Rising focuses on the deadly impact of melee weapons. Raiden's weapon of choice is the katana, which is outfitted with a high frequency blade which can cut through metal like butter. Raiden obtains various sub-weapons through the bosses that he fights, all of which have difference abilities. These include a Polearm, a Sai, and a large double edged sword. These can be used in tandem with Raiden's katana for different combos. Raiden can equip ranged weapons, mostly in the forms of RPGs, to deliver quick distant shots on the battlefield. MGR4 Raiden's main arsenal throughout Metal Gear Solid 2 includes a variety weapons, mostly handguns and assault rifles. Dispatching foes using hand-to-hand combat is often a safer and ideal way to eliminate opposition as you explore through Big Shell. Raiden can obtain rocket launchers, grenades, and other useful equipment to help combat against the variety of foes. Raiden can even obtain his katana during the game, just not the high-frequency, cut-through-anything-version.
