Metal Gear Rising : Revengeance is about the war between the Patriots - which Raiden gets an awesome new cyborg look including a high frequency blade, which can almost literally cut through any substance. The enemies are the Desperado, which are power-hungry cyborgs who kill and destroy for pleasure in an effort to create a new "utopia", since they believe the economy will create a new revolution. The violence is incredibly stylized and contains very graphic blood and gore - where you can cut enemies (any part of their body) in slow motion and see their insides while you continue hacking and slashing. Profanity is also a big concern - plenty of uses of the word f**k, sh*t, son of a b**ch, d**n and h*ll. There are some sexual themes an dialogue, mostly where Raiden meets Mistral - one of the Desperado captains (although no nudity is shown). People 17 and older should be fine playing this game. The story gameplay is surprisingly short and the villain's intentions are highly predictable, but the enemy and boss designs are incredibly detailed, and the controls (killing maneuvers) are very exciting to perform.
