Look at Metal Gear Rising's silly DLC

Tomorrow, PS3 owners will be able to pick up their free exclusive DLC for Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance. The free content includes thirty additional VR missions, promising zany experiences that may have been too wacky for the main campaign (unbelievable as that may be).

A new Japanese trailer reveals some of the missions you'll embark on. You'll be able to play as the Dwarf Gekko once again in the first add-on mission. In another, you'll be gunning down enemies as Raiden. Another stage seems to take the perspective of a 2D side-scroller.

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance review: ripped apart

Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance review: ripped apart

There's few franchises that garner the same kind of respect Metal Gear does. Over its 25 year legacy, it's repeatedly defined landmark moments in gaming. Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance has a lot to live up to. Not only must it adhere to the same quality expected of the franchise, but it must make real what many fans have been waiting for: a game where you get to play as one of the series' deadly sword-wielding cyborg ninjas.

Platinum Games, developer of cult action hits like Bayonetta and Vanquish, clearly have the chops to make a great action game. But, can they make a great game that lives up to the Metal Gear name? Almost, but not quite.
