Just thought I'd make this for you guys to use, and myself of course.
(Please note, this review contains spoilers)
The new DLC pack for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance, this time featuring Blade Wolf.
Wow, what can I say? It was certainly better than the Jetstream DLC, but not by a whole lot.
Like the Jetstream DLC, you move through areas already in the game and fight the same enemies.
But it's different because you're not a cyborg with a sword, you're a wolf with claws, knifes and a chainsaw! That's what I liked about this, it was different.
Sam was too similar to Raiden in fighting style, but Blade Wolf was nowhere near the same.
The cutscenes were entertaining (specially Mistral sitting on a chair of Tripods).
The VR-missions were fun (not the collectible ones, AAARGH, too hard) focusing on classic platforming which really kept me entertained.
Bladewolf has cool controls. There are knifes scattered around everywhere that you can pick up and use as throw-able weapons.
His cinematic effects are very cool, with the Hunt Kills and Blade Mode kills looking awesome.
He occasionally speaks during combat, like after a Hunt Kill or after completing a chainsaw combo, and I just love hearing that voice.
After standing still for a while he'll lay down like a dog, which just looks too cute. And unlike Sam, he actually has AR display.
That's good, so I don't accidentally outrage every enemy in front of me when I'm just trying to use my AR display while sneaking! Anyways...
The gameplay itself was alright. Maybe a little easy though. I was able to sneak kill EVERYONE at my first try.
The addition of patrolling GRADs and Fenrirs made some parts of the game seem more different, which I liked.
And last but not least, the bosses.
Well, maybe that's a little incorrect, since there's only one boss in this DLC...well, technically there's two but one is optional.
The first boss is sort of a bonus boss during the VR part. And that boss is who? Yourself. Yup, you're fighting yourself.
Then there's the actual boss, Khamsin. I like how the final boss is actually a new boss, unlike Jetstream where you just fought three of the same bosses from the main game.
However, I wish there was more build up to the boss fight.
Well, that's about it. To summarize, the Blade Wolf DLC shares some of the same problems the Jetstream DLC had, but Blade Wolf was more fun to control, the gameplay was more fun, but easier, and the bosses were more original. All that for the price of 9 dollars. I say give it a shot. 9/10
