What do you think of the Metal Gear Revengeance demo?

The Dtoid community weighs in

The Metal Gear Rising: Revengeance demo is now up on Xbox Live and the PlayStation Network. The demo is based on the Tokyo Game Show demo we saw last year, and sees Raiden fighting cyborgs, Geckos, and the dog robot with a chainsaw for a tail.

We've been looking forward to this new entry to the Metal Gear universe long before it was even a Platinum Games project. Now we're just under a month away from the February 19 release in the US.

While I intend on playing the ever living hell out of Revengeance when it's officially released, the demo has left me a bit turned off. My attempts are parrying attacks seemed to work only half the time, leaving me frustrated more often than not. I need to give the demo a few more spins, as others didn't seem to run into my problem when I brought it up on Twitter. It probably also doesn't help that I'm just coming off of a big high from DmC's combat system, which I adore.

What do you think of the Revengeance demo?
