Dont know what you ptalking about. Ryse is one of the best looking games at e3 majority ofgaming journalists says, however i do agree wiyh you on thief its look like a current gen game.

Looks arent everything mate, i think from what they have shown, gameplay seems shallow

But ur right the graphics were great and all

im a fan of Quality = sony . and i have to admit that ryse did look very good its one of my favorite games on the xbox one, I'm not buying that system though. .

Ryse looks great, but I'm not a fan of that hack and slash style of gameplay. The Order 1886 looks much more interesting to me with it's supernatural aspect.

Ryse looked like alot of QTE's and thief looked like it played much better.
I think splinter cell looked a little better than thief though.

I saw 2 vids of Ryse and i saw more QTes/min than in asura wrath ....

No thanks

Yeah it was shiny but it looked boring as hell
DirtyMagician  +   846d ago
Ryse looked awesome, but gameplay looked really slow and clunky. The QTE seemed to slow the gameplay down way too much.

"best looking" key words
BlaqMagiq24  +   846d ago
Well of course Ryse looks great. It's made by a company that only cares about graphics and not gameplay hence why it's not impressive.
dantesparda  +   846d ago
The graphics were good and the gsame looked good, but what concerns me is the framerate, it looked choppy at times

Prepare for the onslaught of the ng4 sony soldiers to come at your thread in full force.

Ryse - awesome
Thief - meh
TechnicianTed  +   846d ago
Other way around.
Hufandpuf  +   846d ago
Thief looks like dishonered and not next-gen at all. I saw the demo and if people are interested that's fine, but It was glitchy and had many bugs.
TechnicianTed  +   846d ago
'It was glitchy and had many bugs.'

It's still in production, it hasn't been finished yet.

'Thief looks like dishonered'

You've never played a Thief game then I take it?

Ryse looks like a very boring 'corridor' game. You'll play it through once then never touch it again. Why? Well, look at the demo! It plays itself, every kill prompts a quicktime event, where's the fun in that!?
Hufandpuf  +   846d ago
The developer said that they increased the damage for demo purposes so that it wouldn't take as many hits to prompt the execution kills so that it wouldn't take as long to show the game.

Also the game is going for a more realistic feel, so the enemies do not require 30 hit combos to kill them.
JunkieJedi  +   846d ago
A realistic feel? That would be pretty much a one hit kill then??

Feels a bit contradictory that they've artificially for E3 made it easier to kill people but want a more realistic feel for the finished product. Hitting someone twice with a sword would do a number on them...any more than that...NOT realistic.

" Hitting someone twice with a sword would do a number on them...any more than that...NOT realistic."

So I'mg guessing you've never once played an FPS game where you unload 1-2 clips before the kill or where it takes 2-3 body shots from a .50 cal sniper rifle.

It's tweaked this way to make it more fun. Has been done like this for um decades now?

rise should have looked much better considering you are basically controling a cut scene. when the view actually panned back when you're actually doing something besides quicktime events it didn't look near as good. i'm sure thats why they did show so much quicktime. why not confuse people into believing the game looks that good.

the character moved like a tank. wasn't impressive at all. and thief looked terrible. when it looks like dishonored there is a problem.

Gotta remember that this game was supposed to be for kinect. Probably had to do quick changes for basically everything.

Still looks pretty good though.

Ryse, in my opinion, looked fantastic. Initially, the first scene really impressed me. But then, after watching the gameplay, seemed to be the usual Crytek story of great graphics, lacklustre gameplay.
SignifiedSix91  +   846d ago
RYSE is actually a pretty damn good looking game, but I'll reserve my judgement until I play the full version.

It may be done by one of the companies with one of the best engines in the world, but the gameplay may not be up to par.

Like I said, I'll reserve judgdment until I play it.

I didn't even see thief so I can't say anything about that.

I remember the first one for pc way back then and it was amazing. I hope this one will be as well.

Ryse looked great. I liked the part where they went into 1st person view where u block with your shield or throw spears but the gameplay did look kind of slow. I wished they wouldve taken a more dynasty warriors type gameplay route because it would fit this game perfect. Kind a looked like a god of war imitation with weaker gameplay mechanics. Still the game looked good, hope they can fix those things.

Ryse looks good
thank god they didnt use kinect
etownone  +   846d ago
Ryse would definitely be a day one buy IF I decide to get Xbone
brianunfried  +   846d ago
Ryse looks like a rental to me, oh wait rentals don't exist anymore.
Snarkasaur  +   846d ago
Ryse looks like a last gen game, by which I mean Gamecube.
