Ryse: Son of Rome Preview – Brutally Satisfying I TheKoalition

Richard Bailey of TheKoalition writes:
During Microsoft’s Pre E3 Press Conference way back in June of 2011, the studio announced a new IP currently being developed alongside the talented team over at Crytek. Slated as an Xbox 360 exclusive, Ryse was poised to put players in the role of a vengeful roman general while also delivering a hardcore first-person Kinect game experience for mature audiences. This initial concept evolved over time and was revisited again during this year’s press conference just a few short weeks ago. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Ryse definitely looks good so far. We will see if they succeed in making this a great game come November.

If you like a game that plays itself (you don't have to do anything during the QTE's) then it will be good. Basically an interactive movie, I guess like Heavy Rain.

during an E3 interview the dev said they sped up the fighting execution times to take less hits to activate so they could show the game without having it drawn out.

Lol at silly fanboys hating on a game they're supposed to hate. They're like sheep.

Full clarification on the battle system and difficulty levels (going more in-depth than the one I originally saw)

Butthurt much? lol
Sony must've really done something baaaaad for you to hate them that much, i mean really baaaaaaaaaaaad.

Oh my Dam, dude you are truly the most brain washed sony fan on this site. I have never seen some one so blindly loyal to a console that they will start accusing the competition of buying a f@cking article. You really need to get a girl or something.

Looking forward to this game keeping a close eye on it.

Same here the game is shaping up nicely ;)

Does that mean i get to be brutal with my controller with all the QTE button mashing?
Kevlar009  +   835d ago
Don't worry, you can just sit there during the QTE's, they play themselves (confirmed by the devs)

Im still stunned at the visuals !

For the 100th time, hardcore mode in the game will disable all button prompts and slow down. I really want to see a demonstration of this mode.
Donnieboi  +   835d ago
Gotta love those QTE prompts.
CrossingEden  +   835d ago
gotta love THAT HARDCORE MODE THAT REMOVES THEM, but of course let's ignore that right and praise the next article about beyond two souls -_-
McScroggz  +   835d ago
I'm very leary of this game. I know the developer said it's not just a bunch of QTE's, but if there is a deep combat system then I have no idea why they didn't show it off. Plus, the developer said you "get more XP" so you will try to always hit the button prompts, basically turning it into a QTE fest regardless.

Say what you will, but God of War has a decently complex combat system with combos, including multiple weapons and powers. There's no way for me to know what the totality of Ryse will be, but if I'm judging it by what I've actually seen and not just what the developer says, it looks pretty boring. Emphasis on pretty though :D

There's nothing satisfying about having to do QTE's every five seconds and constant set pieces being shoved down your throat.
gnothe1  +   834d ago
are you a fan of heavy rain?
Swiggins  +   834d ago
I'm definitely keeping my eye on this title, I like what I'm seeing so far but I would like to see a hell of a lot more variety in the game-play, if it's all QTE's then color me disappointed.

The game looks cool no doubt. Graphics r expected as a next gen title. However the QTE's in every battle might diminish the gaming experience.
