So, I beat Metal Gear Rising the other night. Now today I dug in and finished up all of the collectibles. Yay all of the unlock-able swords! Anyways, now I have two options as I see at this point. I can drop the game now and be done with it or to go on and S-Rank it. The game is actually fairly fun but also its also REALLY short. A quick jaunt through the VR missions might add on another hour or two but for the most part all the content has been exhausted.
So, the only way I see to extent my playtime with the game is to have a set of goals to work for i.e the trophies. Which for the large part are doable there are however a series of 7 trophies that could prove most troublesome.
- S-Rank every mission in the game on Revengence (Very-Hard) mode. Getting an S-Rank means getting an S-Rank in EVERY battle in the game in every level. Some battles are easily enough placed close to a checkpoint for easy restarts others....would most likely require entire level restarts if you messed them up.
- "Perfect" boss runs. There are Five trophies for five of the major boss fights in which you must take NO damage while doing them on Hard mode. Hard mode isn't what I'm worried about because honestly unlike a game like say DmC the enemies don't really seem to change up attack patterns much at all.
- 1st Place in all VR missions. The last trophy that seems like a real pain here. The VR missions start to get pretty challenging pretty quickly. All of your upgrades are pretty much null and void here meaning you start with your default 100% life bar and battery gauge.
So, trying to make up my mind on this. I don't really have anything "new" to get to and the next game I get is going to be Ninja Gaiden Razor's edge in April so... lots of time to kill with no new games. So anyone else flirting with the idea of going all out for an S-Rank? I had a lot of fun S-Ranking DmC recently even though that game's trophies were really easy.
