Yeah, I was okay with Raiden in MGS2; I didn't hate him though I didn't particularly like him either. But in MGS4 he just became way too emo for my tastes (and, sadly enough, I usually like emo characters, to an extent). From the new trailer, Raiden seems to be transforming into some kind of psychotic killing machine, so I'm wondering just how he went from possibly putting his family back together to THAT. But I played the demo and actually enjoyed it. The combos flow fluidly and it plays pretty well (though, I think the camera might have made me a bit motion sick). I will probably rent it instead of buy it, though.
