1985FM - What's Wrong With Ryse?

Ryse: Son of Rome had a larger presence than any other game at this year's San Diego Comic-Con. It's easy to understand why Microsoft views this Roman epic as a perfect showpiece to represent the company's next-generation hardware. Ryse has the graphic fidelity and cinematic appeal to stand out amongst other titles on both Xbox One and Sony's PlayStation 4. With Far Cry and Crysis, as well as the Crytek Engine, Crytek's capability of pushing graphics has never been questioned. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

This is one of those typical cliche first-comments

I also remember a great article about how shitty Drive Club was ps fanturds but that didn't stop you commenting about it being 35% complete. Shut your fucking mouth ps fanboys. The game is in pre-alpha. In pre-alpha not even the gameplay is finished so shut your mouth.

hmmmmm interesting. Good to know.
MiasmaDodo  +   549d ago
the game looks very bland. (hack n slash & qte)

next gen games need to step it up.
not just talking about Ryse.
Jughead3416  +   549d ago
Yea, at least in God of War, the QTE's were reserved mostly for finishing off a boss fight, which ended in the most brutal and epic kills in video gaming history.

I don't know, Ryse seems to have a good fix on graphics, but it seems kind of bland. All I've seen are grey and muted colors.

GoW has the whold mythological art style going for it, and I want to like Ryse, but I'll need to see more of it.
DonFreezer  +   549d ago
The game was showed in pre-alpha ps hypocrites. Why did you defend Drive Club when it was 35% completed and looked like shit and we can't say the same about Ryse huh?
Jughead3416  +   549d ago
Man if this game had similar fighting mechanics to Dark Souls, I would be all over this.
zagan06  +   549d ago
It doesn't play anything like it in fact there was no challenge at all. kinda a bummer
Jughead3416  +   549d ago
Yea it almost seems like they decided right before E3 to change it from a Kinect game to a game played on your remote, so they had to throw something together. I know the game isn't out yet, and we've only seen 10 minutes of gameplay, but it goes to show, it's not just about graphics.
Hicken  +   549d ago
Well that's not gonna happen.

Would be pretty awesome, though.
zagan06  +   549d ago
The demo I played felt more like a interactive trailer than a game.
Bigpappy  +   549d ago
They said they will release a real demo soon that actually shows how the game will play, and it will have different gameplay for each difficulty.

You need to go back and read the developer's interview.

That demo you might have played at E3 was more of an interactive trailer to show the game and a few of its features. The gameplay will be more complex than that.

The reason you dont compare launch titles
guitarded77  +   549d ago
I was seriously considering pre-ordering an XBOX One, but I just don't see the software I want. RYSE looks kinda cool, and I know Forza will be fun. But none of the games I have seen are must haves. RYSE looks like it will be a fun action game, even if it is QTE based (so was Heavy Rain, and it was fun). MS needs to say "these are the launch games", then show them in depth. Right now, it's just PS4 for me, but if MS can make at least 2 launch games must have for me, I'll buy. Is Remedy's game gonna be out at launch?
Cursinguser  +   549d ago
Aside from a choppy frame rate, Dead Rising 3 looks like it'll be the best choice for a launch title. The SDCC gameplay demo was pretty extensive and impressive.
Jughead3416  +   549d ago
My PS4 is already paid in full and I'm pumped about it. I'll get an XBOX next Holiday Season. I think they'll both be almost on par with each other, but the playstation exclusives are system sellers. I'm not just thinking about what they've already revealed, but what I know will be revealed soon by Sony (Uncharted 4).
guitarded77  +   549d ago
Yeah, DR3 is a system seller for some people, but I just didn't really care for DR 1 and 2. Just a personal preference thing. The best looking XBOX One games for me are Forza and Quantum Break, but I'm not sure if QB is gonna be a launch title. All I'm saying is that I'm waiting to see more before I spend over $600 on another console and a couple of games.
thetruthx1  +   549d ago
Oh Knack, Driveclub, and Killzone are "must-haves"

You learn something new everyday (sarcasm)
guitarded77  +   549d ago
Killzone is a must have for me, and inFAMOUS is a must have (Q1). WTF does it matter to you? I'm not putting down the XBOX One in any way, just want to see more of the launch games before spending MY money. You're a bit defensive. I'm not trying to influence or persuade anyone, just my 2 cents. RYSE looks cool, but it's just not a system sell IMO.

Yeah, Forza 5 looks good as well. The launch of a system tends to be the only time I'm super interested in racing games.
skydragoonity  +   549d ago
So far I'm looking forward to playing Ryse.
PFFT  +   549d ago
Yep same here. Along side of Dead Rising 3, Forza5, Ass Creed 4, Watchdogs and Battlefield 4.
MiasmaDodo  +   549d ago
Both systems dont have "killer" 1st party games at Launch.

X1 - Should launch with TitanFall (use up the exclusive window)

PS4 - Should launch with Second Son. I cannot believe SONY didnt put Second Son as a real priority
sevilha82  +   549d ago
from what i saw i looks really easy to play and not in a good way.

a monkey could play it.

tipical Crytek,awsome graphics,lousy gameplay...
BootHammer  +   549d ago
I do hope they make it more interactive. Graphics are impressive but I want more control than simple QTE's. As long as they mix up the action, it could be a fantastic game. Looking forward to seeing more of Ryse either way.
MWong  +   549d ago
They should have kept it with the Kinect as the direct game controlling interface. Don't know why they changed it to a button-smashing QTE game.

It was once a glimmer of hope, saying M$ hasn't given up on the 360 and show the power of the Kinect. Made me want to even go out and buy a Kinect. They said nope lets bring it to the XBone. Now it's only a shadow of it's former self.

ONce again Crytek have Rysen the bar.
