Scott from The Controller Online writes: "Metal Gear Rising has traveled a rocky road on its way to store shelves, first being scrapped by Kojima Productions and then being resurrected by Platinum Games with the added subtitle, Revengeance. My distaste for unnecessarily made-up words aside, it was my hope that the game would eventually see the light of day as, even though it is a drastic departure from the series, a new Metal Gear game is something to be excited about. Can Jack and a sword really be the basis for a new Metal Gear game? Can Platinum Games pick up on what Kojima was trying to accomplish with Rising? Now is the time to find out."
