Ryse: Son of Rome Hands-On Preview | GameDynamo

GameDynamo - "It seems that what designated AAA titles during this lengthy seventh generation of console games will extend to the next: spectacle. This is a predominant theme in one of the Xbox One's exclusive frontrunners, Ryse: Son of Rome. " (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

Ryse another must have Xbox One launch game.

this game impressed everyone at E3 and it wasn't even finished yet. Can't wait to see more at Gamescon.

MS firing double shotty's in the air and hitting the clouds! (POWAH!)

Good job guys!

Not sure what you mean by impressed because all the major news outlets have been extremely dissappointed so far in the actual thing that matters most in a game, GAMEPLAY. This game is gonna bomb on launch.

That's because you only hang around here where they only post the negative stuff. Ryse looks and plays great. One of the best looking titles at E-3 and it's a xbox exclusive. Strong lineup for MS this holiday.

Sony folks sure are hoping Ryse fails for some unknown reason??? I'm sure its for all the right reasons that only real hardcore ps gamers can see. Just trying to save us unsuspecting gamers from making a big mistake...ahhh well I'm a slow learner, I can't wait to make a big mistake with Ryse being the first game I download day ONE.

People please show me previews of the game that are not concerned about the mechanics and constant barrage of QTE's I would like to see these previews. Also the Xbox has a strong line up but letting a game get a free pass on graphics alone is insulting to this industry.

Ryse didnt wow me that much

i mean looks good in all but i thought it would be more free style kind of think with finishes like that not just the finishes but i might be totally wrong it might be an awesome game

Well, without getting into all the needless theatrics ... I'm still pretty excited for Ryse.

Then again, I'm excited for Knack too. Hate all you want. I know what I like, I have my own distinct tastes, etc.

"To that end, and continuing the theme of “spectacle,” each individual confrontation amounts to a bout of quick-time events."

"but there were instances when inputting the incorrect prompt still yielded the same devastating finishing move as a correct one."

The game is ridiculously gorgeous. But every hands on says the same thing. Hopefully a new demo at Gamescom will reveal more depth to the gameplay?

Wow you dont even have to play the game. Sweet, so pumped for it! Hell who doesnt love an entire game built off qte.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   645d ago
Graphically it looks nice from that crytek engine but as most people should know while crytek games look amazing they usually lack substance.

And from what I have seen and heard so far that pretty much proves it lacks substance as the gameplay isn't the greatest.

But things still have time to be ironed out.
Saddam_hussein  +   645d ago
Would you take this or knack as a launch game?
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   645d ago
Knack isn't my cup of tea but ryse also don't look that great to me.

So actually nethier.

Launch Line ups have never been the bread and butter of consoles so why should it magically matter now?

Only exclusive launch title that interests me is kzsf on ps4
itBourne  +   645d ago
Im with you, knack looks like a kids game (difficulty wise), Ryse plays itself and looks like it has no character. So both are meh.

I am getting Killzone mostly for the clan system lol. At least if its like it was in KZ2, that shit should be a staple in all mp games..
PFFT  +   645d ago
The same can be said about Killzone.
Great looking graphics BUT the story just plain sucks.
xReDeMpTiOnx  +   645d ago
The story overall for killzone is meh nothing special, but in terms of story for a fps its actually pretty good there's alot about it people don't know.

Now on terms of killzone 3 yes it didn't do anything really special.

But killzone 2 did so many innovative things for a console shooter that is still better than most mp games out there.

- in game clan systems that you can host your own tournaments and private matches ( I mean really no game on consoles do that :/)

- dynamic maps back in 2009

- deep class base

- spawn grenades

And I could go on and on. Anyone who says killzone 2 has don't nothing different or innovative for console shooters is just flat out trolling or is to big of a fanboy to accept it.

Both consoles coming out both have advantages and disadvantages I'm just not one to get mad when someone says something about a console that is true but not nessasarily good like so many people here that jump and cringe at any negative thing said about thier console.

Ryse looks boring and lackluster
Knack looks just totally meh to me

I the thought Crysis gameplay was pretty awesome, didn't even need a MP mode.

reads like a preview of the old E3 demo.

I'm not sure why people think ryse is no good do to qte. God of war is huge on qte and sells like hot cakes. Ryse looks amazing and is A first day buy for me.

People that are mostly Sony loyalist keep trying to downplay the gameplay in this game but I personally don't see anything wrong with it knowing the enemies will be more difficult in the retail version

You can try to stop this game in it's tracks but Crytek and Microsoft decided to give this game a huge budget just like they did with Halo and Gears. They have been working hard to make it a blockbuster.

I bet this game will be successful!
