Although Metal Gear Solid purists may not like the new direction taken by Rising, the appeal and polish is undeniable. Besides, just about anything related to this legendary franchise turns out to be downright amazing, and this trailer is just dripping with visceral bad-ass-ness. Raiden replaces the grizzled Snake as the protagonist this time around, and his office isn't stealth...it's in-your-face swordplay, punctuated by beautifully choreographed attacks and a singular sense of brutality. Awesome!
