Rated 1 out of 5 by from Do better testing of your used products I purchased this game because I have wanted it for a while and 10 bucks was a great deal for a used game...however the game immediately came with an install error at the 10% mark every time which was the dirty or bad disc error code so I never even had a chance to play it. The biggest problem for me is the closest gamestop is literally 90 miles away from me so returning it isn't easy. I have shipped it back so as to whether I get a refund remains to be seen but that also will make the decision to buy from gamestop ever again!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Insanely awesome game. Though somewhat short this game is filed with nonstop action and brutal moves as a roman soldier. One of the few games that gave a great feel for the time period and what many people want games like this to be like. Really hope for more games like this.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Awesom! This is a great game for the casual gamer like myself. Awesome graphics and controls in my opinion! If you own a Xbox One you should own Ryse: Son of Rome!

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great! Really fun and awesome game I hope they make another one and add more finishing moves and make it a bit longer. It's a really short game and can get challenging at times on your first play through. On the 2nd time through I was like the Maximus in the movie gladiator.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Not bad.....could be better Vaguely reminiscent of a Shakespearean tragedy the game has an intriguing story that seems to have jumped off the silver screen, the gameplay is fun and fluid. That being said the story while fun and highly entertaining is short and the ending (while epic) felt rushed. The multiplayer was good but only to a certain extent and quickly felt repetitive. It felt as if a big budget was poured in but a lot was lost along the way.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from Stunning, Interesting, but failed to give me more Ryse visually is a stunning game. The gameplay got a bit old on more than one occasion, and because of the repetitive play I found it hard to really want to keep going for long hours. Overall the story itself is still a pretty good one that is, in my opinion, intriguing. I got this game late (about almost two years) thinking it would be terrible, but I was actually surprised. The story is great the graphics are awesome and even with the "sucky" stab! stab! gameplay it is still a pretty good buy. But as always, to each his own, and what might be good to me, may not be good for others and vice versa.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from An Underrated Gem! This game was a blast to play through. It delivered a simple, but fun and responsive combat system, as well as a well structured narrative. I was thoroughly surprised at how good the game was despite a low to average response from critics. It doesn't do anything incredibly new or exciting, but it delivered on what it set it out to do. Highly recommended. 8.5.
