A Slice of Raiden: Rising Above Most Side Stories 0

As a franchise, Metal Gear Solid is not afraid of compressing a wealth of exposition in their games, even those considered to be side stories.

It's hard to imagine many games that I would want less gameplay but more story involvement in, but if you've been following Remedy games for a while, you know that their penchant for gritty near-noir type settings and dark, imperfect protagonists is best-in-class. The combat always just feels a bit off, even for the people who made bullet time such a popular concept.The next chapter in Alan Wake's saga is more combat than maybe fans of the first game might want, but is ultimately worth it to see...
