Metal Gear Rising Revengeance, clear

It was pretty fantastic overall but got kind of wacky at the end. Also way to ruin Raiden's happy ending from MGS4, are they planning a sequel or something?

About 20 of those 29 continues came from the final boss (with the metal gear I didn't realise you could parry its attacks until I died a dozen times and the real final boss just kind of murdered me a few times before I realised you can't parry his attacks). Also five came from the bit running down the clock tower to Ray.

And yeah, kind of short. I can't help but feel that there should've been a bike sequence when escaping from Denver, and a bit more stuff in the final stage (preferably with Raiden taking on a bunch of Rays). Excelsus sucked too.

Edit: Cleared my second playthrough (hard).
 It was even easier than the first playthrough. I have to say though, the best moments of the game are mostly in the first half and it gets a bit boring once you've cleared it once because it's all the same stuff over again. This really ought to have been at least twice as long.
