Hands-on Impressions of Ryse: Son of Rome – A Xbox One Exclusive

Ryse: Son of Rome is a Xbox One launch day title that is exclusive to Microsoft’s new gaming console. This brutally violent and highly detailed game is from Crytek, and it features action-adventure gameplay not too dissimilar from God of War, or the Batman: Arkham games. I was lucky enough to get some hands-on time with the game at a private Xbox 101 event held after hours during the kick off of E3 week, and I must say that it’s definitely shaping up to be a great launch title for the One.

It's just another Crytek tech demo, the game runs on QTE's, and apparently, according to the developers, even if you miss or get a QTE wrong, there are no penalties, to make the game "less frustrating" and a "better experience".

Basically its a Kinect game without the Kinect.

Also, story is pretty much God of War - Greek Mythology.

this gen "Heavy Rain" uses similar quick time events and it worked for that game.

That's a bad comparison Heavy Rain used QTE's to tell a story, a missed QTE changed the story a failure had an outcome that differed from a correct input.

The game looks good but it's really not my kind of game

As soon as I saw that they made QuickTime events a central part of the game it was a failure in my eyes. Whoever thought this was a good idea needs to be taken to the wood shed.

You don't have to do any of the QTE's fanboy. Read the article for

And you don't actually need to do them correctly either...

CC-Tron1558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )


I read the article. Kotaku was misleading. They neglected to include if you don't do them correctly you don't receive the xp or hp bonuses. That's a pretty big omission.

they're not QTE because pressing the buttons don't do anything.

this dude is a beast who is driven by revenge, and will do anything to quench the thirst of avenging his family’s murder.

i have heard of this game its called GOD OF WAR

theWB271558d ago (Edited 1558d ago )

You know who else was a beast, driven by revenge, and will do anything to quench the thirst avenging his family's murder??

The Big Heat- released in 1953
Death Wish- released 1974
Braveheart- released in 1995
Kill Bill- released in 03

I understand it's your duty to downplay anything Xbox...but implying someone ripping off GOW's story is hardly worth it.

Max Payne has the same story also and it came out 4 years before GOW...try harder next time.

I love Deathwish 1 2 3 and Braveheart
