Re: 2013 might challenge 1998 for best gaming year ever - take a look
I'll give you that, Platinum are great developers, but MGSR could be made by Kojima Productions and I still wouldn't be a big fan of the concept. To me, a character like Raiden works better in sporadic doses, and a hack n' slash just isn't Metal Gear to me no matter how well it's polished.
The one saving grace is that Kojima's team didn't have to focus all their efforts on this, and Kojima was able to channel most of his attention on the new FOX engine.
I might be wrong on this, but I think that one of the main reasons MGSR was made is because Konami wanted to go multiplat with the series, and the Xbox's DVD-9 limitations would've made it hard to handle a full blown sequel without it being on multiple discs.
