Ryse: Son of Rome
Not worth the price tag
With not that many games out on the XOne yet, it's hard not to pick this game up. The game does have good graphics and an okay story, but lacks in the player needing any kind of skill. This game can be button mashed all the way through. The kill scenes in the game are entertaining and pretty graphic, but they get over played very quickly. I beat this game in under 5 hours, and will probably never play it again. It is not worth anything over 40 dollars. This will probably be a free game when Xbox One finally starts the free with gold campaign.
Ryse is awesome!
This game is so unique such a creative game with the ancient rome experience and many times thought i was watching a movie during one of the cut scenes and a lot of people hate on this game because of the quick time events. But i will ensure you this game's quick time events are VERY fun! great game and much more creative then sleepzone:shadow fail or gack. Great game overall and a day one pickup easy!
a great game
this is a great game the only problem is is your enemies all look the same overall a great game graphics are phenomenal gameplay is great overall a really good game but really short
perfect launch game!
this was a well executed game, especially for a launch title it stood out from the rest and i still continue to play. It has an amazing storyline and the graphics are amazing... an instant classic!
This game is amazing! It was the first game I picked up for my One. It is still my favorite game in my collection. The graphics are unbelievable and the quality is amazing. You can play it over and over again at different difficulty levels and still not remember the right path to take. There is also the gladiator mode to continue playing even when you are done with all of the phases. Definitely a great game to pick up for anyone!
This was the first game i played on my X1. Its a great game and hope they make a second one. Game play is great along with the executions it reminds me of the 300 movie. Visuals are good and sound is great along with the story. The only thing is that the story mode is short but loved every second of it. I highly recommend this game to anyone with a X1.
This game had to be the best game I've played in awhile. The graphics and sound truly bring this have to life.
It was awesome, but....
this game was amazing! you play a roman and just hack and slash barbarians, what's not to like!? the story was good and the combat was awesome (besides the fact the combos got repetitive), and in the multiplayer you get to custom your own gladiator and fight in the arena with a friend! Sadly, its one of those games that once you beat it, its beat, but overall still a great game
BEST LAUNCH GAME ON XBOX ONE
This game totally put me in awe. The graphics are stunning, and never get old. However short the main campaign is, the story was great. The fighting was a bit repetitive, but not too much for my disliking. Overall an INCREDIBLE GAME! MUST BUY!
Love the graphics in this game, a lot of neat angles and the surroundings look amazing. The concept of this game is rather original considering you're a roman soldier on the warpath (almost has that 300 appeal working for it, just as a roman). The voice commands are alright if you're into it. Sometimes they are just annoying though, when you have to keep giving the commands over and over again "FIre Volley"! Also, this game can become rather repetitive, in the sense that you just keep moving forward without any real objectives, just keep pressing X and then Y while you are executing barbarians, which by the way is always awesome. It provides that extra cinematic feature of the next-gen. gaming. Along-side the cinematic executions they have incorporated a new way of using button sequencing, where your enemy flashes a color as oppose to the little button flashing on top of the head of your enemy. All and all i am enjoying playing through this game but as fore mentioned it can be a little repetitive.
