Ryse: Son of Rome looks to be sinking | Destructoid

Destructoid: "Microsoft likes Ryse: Son of Rome enough to put it in Monday's press conference. If my hands-on time was any indication of the final product, there's no reason to be so keen on it. Despite having only five minutes with the game, it didn't do much to impress."

I think we all knew this game would be all graphics and sub par gameplay. There's way too much QTE's and slow mo takedowns.

Crytek games: Great presentation, subpar gameplay.

are more for the effect. you can continue to button mash if you like and you will still kill the bad guy.

when i play God of war, i dont always go for the 1 button kill. sometimes i like to just hack and slash. When the game gives you the option....just dont press that button and see what happens.

either you still kill the other guy or he counters and the battle continues till one of you is victorious.

Comparing GoW isnt really a good comparison. Ryse seems more grounded then GoW. I dont expect to see crazy combos being pulled off like every successful brawler can. Also that Resident Evil'esq camera angle seems like a horrible choice for a brawler. The combat thus far seems bland. Cryteks track record is looks first, and gameplay later.

When I saw Ryse I thought, nice looking game, a little choppy with the animations and when the camera pans, 1 hit with sword or shield leads instantly to QTE = rental. But than I reminded myself that there is no renting on the XBOX ONE. See MS this is why you should reconsider your position on DRM immediately.

They should've stuck to this remaining a Kinect game. Either way this game needs a ton more depth in play mechanics or it will sit and collect dust on store shelves until it's discounted considerably.

That's the way that Crytek games always are. Crytek earns most of their money with their engine not their games.

iot slows the game down and there is nothing i hate more than repeated animations. just makes the game monotonous

The game has a huge potential to be good. But the QTE and slo mo was a big deal breaker for me.

It's pretty much a quick time event game. Pass.

The Xbox One's graphics make those Quicktime Events look fantastic.

The Xbox One's [cloud] make those Quicktime Events look fantastic.

Microsoft is using QuickTime again? Blah...

Destructoid seems to be very biased, giving the MS the conference an F and the loads of bs that have come me out of that site recently. Take this with a big grain of salt, IGN, Giant bomb, and Gamespot said it plays very well.
