Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance out now on Mac

The Mac version just got released, and it's actually damn good.

Super over the top, gore and cyborg parts galore, with enough action to make a bath salt junky happy!

The controls take some getting use it, as playing with a controller is a requirement essentially. Thank goodness it support the 360, PS4, and PS3 controllers, with the ONE also.

It's not a super looker of a game, but it's a console port after all. Even so TransGaming did an outstanding job bringing it to the Mac and the performance is fantastic. Pity it doesn't support more than 1080p as a resolution though. Even though it allows me to select a higher resolution , it's still 1080p, with just added Letter, and pillar boxing.

The gameplay is superb, and handles well. It'll keep engaged, that's for sure. Especially if you're a DMC fan to some extent. The story so far doesn't even seem to require you having played any of the previous games in the slightest. Which is fine, it stands on its own merits.

The biggest negatives, is the constant interrupting cut scenes, that can go on for a tad too long. Featuring the cringiest voice acting around, Uwe Boll's movie might have better acting than this.

The worst offender is the camera angles though, you control them with the right analog stick. Which is a mess; given you need to press the button just to the right of it to fight. So you can easily mangle your fingers trying to get anything done.

Even so, it's a very fun game, and certainly worth picking up on a support Mac.
