Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance is a third-person hack-and-slash action game released in 2013. It is the ninth title in the Metal Gear series, featuring the character Raiden who first appeared in Metal Gear Solid 2: Sons of Liberty, in a story set four years after the events of Metal Gear Solid 4: Guns of the Patriots.
Following the events four years after MSG4, the powerful organization running the war's economy, known as The Patriots, has been destroyed and broken into separate factions called Private Military Companies. Raiden is a cyborg working for the PMC Maverick Securities, who fight against a rival PMC known as Desperado Enterprises who are determined to destroy peace among nations in order to reap the financial rewards of the war economy.
Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance received positive reviews, with an average score of 83%, praised for its combat system and ability to expand the series.
If you've played any previous Metal Gear titles, then you'll understand these Platinums are not easy - and Revengeance is no exception. Using a cheat code, it's possible to jump to the hardest difficulty mode and get the platinum in one playthrough with some mopping-up afterwards. However, we at Trophy Hunter give kudos to anyone able to do this. Most players will probably start on Normal and work their way through as the game gets harder. In order to clear the hardest difficulty setting, you'll need to be a complete master of the mechanics and controls.
Overall, expect anywhere between 30 to 60 hours of gameplay, depending on your skills.
It is possible to unlock all modes of difficulty and head straight into Revengeance difficulty. At the Press Start screen, enter the Konami code: up, up, down, down, left, right, left, right, circle, X. However in doing so, you will lack not only the practice and skills gained from playing on the easier modes, but also the upgrades on your gear which ordinarily would make the Revengeance Difficulty mode easier. The choice is yours.
If you decide not to use the Konami Code, then we recommend starting your game on Normal and focusing your first playthrough on collecting as many trophies as you can. This includes all the collectibles and the mission-specific trophies. Check out the Metal Gear Rising Revengeance trophy guide links under our Links tab for further details, as well as a great collectibles video guide.
When you're ready to move up to Hard difficulty, select either Chapter or Continue, rather than New Game, in order to keep everything you've collected thus far. There are a number of trophies you can unlock on this second playthrough, including Amateur Radio Operator, and destroy-related trophies.
Before embarking the Revengeance difficulty, you should head into the VR Missions which will not only earn you two trophies - VR Master and Virtually Flawless - but also more gear and armor that will help you in our final playthrough.
Last is the most challenging stage of all: completing Revengeance mode, and earning an S-Rank across all missions. Check out the Revengeance S-Rank Guide in our Links page if you're experiencing too much trouble.
