Ryse Multiplayer Impressions | IGN

IGN - Are you not entertained?

The story is too old to be commented.
NatureOfLogic1542d ago

This game looks pretty good.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1542d ago

Did you even watch the video? The game is a disaster pretty much.

MariaHelFutura1542d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Ryse is a disaster waiting to happen.
- It's a $60 retail game w/ microtransactions for MP boosters.
- It's a former Xbox 360 Kinect exclusive.
- Preorders
Ryse: Son of Rome - 57,962
-It's a QTE fest, the non QTE combat doesn't look good.
- The graphics aren't all they're hyped up to be.
Ryse (Crytek QTE game)
Infamous Second Son (Suckerpunch Open world game)

NatureOfLogic1542d ago

Wow. I didn't know this was a Xbox 360 game first. It explains the lack of support for 360 exclusives. MS must really be behind if they pulled a Xbox 360 exclusive for X1.

Omar911541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Not only that it was a rails only game kinda like that star was kinect game.

Just sayin.

So they think the multiplayer sucks ?

Thats not a deal breaker. This is a SP game at heart. Buying it for the SP. Multiplayer would just be a bonus just like Tomb Raider for instance.

Quicktopick1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

the graphics isnt that good cuz its not on high specced PC anymore

I feel like some people
Didn't even bother with the video. Apparently the multiplayer is bad at this point. Idk how long they have to fix it but let's hope they cn

Bigpappy1541d ago

That's a bad preview. But the game is unfinished and this is the first bad reaction I have seen on the new demo.

So as it stands right now this is on my caution radar. Still hoping it is as good because I like this type of game. But it has to feel satisfying.

On another note, the Canadian guy want to know who wants to see the expression on the guy's face when you kill him. That comment makes me not want to take the preview to seriously, as he an I have different appreciations for violence in games.

Doesn't look great at all.. My buddy was looking forward to this too. yikes.

sincitysir11541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

@allwrong have u even seen the game actually run?

Hatsune-Miku1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

his game was hyped up to be amazing by xbox fanboys who constantly touted how beautiful this game is and how its above all ps4 launch line up. now the truth is out that it looks worse than god of war ascensions with worse combat system. ryse down, dead rising 3 down which leave forza 5. i cant wait for new drive club footage. dead rising was said by people who had hands on time with it that it doesnt look next gen or feel next gen except for having alot of zombies on screen. it suffers from popins and frame rate drops.

people barely see any of these xbox one launch games but they were being hyped up to supposedly be better than ps4 launch games. ps4 games are constantly being showed and played whereas xbox one games arent. now they are being shown and the truth is coming to light.

When you scrap your 360 games, and re do them for X1 in a hurry, just to try and fluff up your launch lineup, you end up getting this... : /

And to people thinking SP is this game's "saving grace"... I doubt it... lol

Crytek's games aren't exactly "fun" to play. ESPECIALLY considering this game was just a scrapped Kinect 360 game. And no to mention, Crytek can't exactly write a story to save their lives. lol

Ryse's MP was the only saving grace for this game IMO...

But then...

SITH1541d ago

LMAO at the people who are oblivious about Xbox one reserves. It is impossible to use those numbers to gauge anything when Xbox one games can be downloaded the day the release!

iPad1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

It makes you wonder if MS decided to port Ryse for Xbox One in order to boost up the launch lineup because they thought it was weak.

MariaHelFutura1541d ago

"It makes you wonder if MS decided to port Ryse for Xbox One in order to boost up the launch lineup because they thought it was weak."

For anyone wondering if they ported 360 games to the Xbox One to boost their line-up. Read my comment in this article (comment 1.2)

Evilsnuggle1541d ago

Gamespot gave the single player two bad previews also. this game is crap the frame rate is bad it has pop ups xbox fans are comparing is game to infamous second son what a laugh .lol lol lol:D

DonFreezer1541d ago

And care to explain why do you care? If you're getting the ps4 anyway why do you care about a disaster that's not hitting your home? Except if you are a ps troll and feel happy with everything negative about a multibillion dollar corporation(as if Sony are working class level).

DatRealBoy1541d ago

@maria well said bubble up oh and I bubbled up everyone else who agreed with her

UltimateMaster1541d ago

You're far from the God of War Ascension's Multi-Player.

Picnic1541d ago

You're almost certainly a disaster to videogaming. When did you make a game? With an exciting premise like an avenging Roman centurion in the heat of battle with scenery crumbling around him? That has Microsoft's confidence so much that it's an exclusive? Have you been spoilt by The Last of Us or something in to not seeing what other genres can bring to the table? Or did you want zombies and Marius to have a teenage girl to look after to pique your interest?

Boody-Bandit1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

Can we now stop over hyping games before they are released and scratch Ryse from the list of top tier amazing must have exclusive titles for the X1?

When I said, me myself being an MS fan, Ryse looked to be a rental at best it was like I stole someone wallet. ;) I was merely being honest than and as was the assessment of those in this video discussing this game.

When this game was announced for the Xbox 360 it was being touted as the God of War Killer / Rival. Than a year later it was shown to be a Kinect on rails hack and slash. Fast forward to E3 2013 and now it's a full on traditional hack and slash XBOX ONE exclusive game with mind blowing visuals (paraphrasing MS fans, I personally thought it looked decent at best with poor panning camera and clunky frame rates) and a great combat system.

What I saw was a clunky moving simplistic engine that was too heavily reliant on QTE's. Now we have someone confirming there is 1 light sword attack, 1 heavy sword attack, 1 light shield block, 1 heavy shied block. A simplistic clunky combat engine confirmed. This game is only a couple months away from being launched. I said when I saw it at E3 it was a rental at best, before MS dropped DRM where rentals would not have been possible, and now it appears that it is exactly that, a rental at best.

Just another one of those overblown over hyped games that never had an identity to begin with and appears still that it doesn't have one today.

Bottom line. MS's X1 launch lineup has been overblown at best and Ryse is one of those games that I thought was being over hyped the most. Yeah I know, I'm just a troll / fanboy. No I'm an honest gamer that doesn't buy into hype and gives an honest opinion without bias. Something that most people simply can't deal with it. Than again the truth is a hard pill to swallow.

Enemy1541d ago

These gifs and some previews done earlier this month prove that Ryse should have stayed on 360. It looks like 4/10 game.

SilentNegotiator1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

"The problem is that game is really boring"

--IGN on Ryse's MP

Withdreday1541d ago

Looks like a Tech Demo with a vomit color palette.

Nice exclusive Microsoft!

bligmerk1541d ago's the next Gaylo. You must love it, we have commanded it to be so.
Guess who?

tokugawa1541d ago

this wont win goty awards. but i will still be picking this up.

also, the e3 build looked alot better in the grfx department.

the input lag, collision detection and judders will no doubt be rectified in the release build.

one more thing alot of previews have been positive since gamescom. i will be doing my own review in november

abzdine1541d ago (Edited 1541d ago )

guys, it's Crytek we're talking about..
those guys have NO idea of making a good game, they try to lure some sheep with some graphic enhancement and that's it.
Wasn't this the reasons why fanboys prefered X1 to PS4?
Damn you Microsoft for messing with your most humble fanboys

I really hope these things are fixable before launch, time is running short.

Maddens Raiders1541d ago

Funny thing is though M-M, that YTD, it seems that the entire XBOXONE launch needs fixing, yet time is running short. I think Microsoft was totally surprised by Sony's February PS4 reveal and ha been scrambling to match their thunder ever since with hit or miss results.

jatakk1541d ago

And they can still add the power of the cloud . . .

TheSsus1541d ago

The only good thing about it is that it'll only be on XB1 so that trash won't touch other platforms lol. Anyone defending it, c'mon...

Can someone answer me the question and tell me what the story is about?

Eonjay1541d ago

"Nobody knows what it means"...

LOL actually I think what you see is what you get. Its about a Roman solder doing things that Roman solders do.

HammadTheBeast1541d ago

Like God of War without the greek mythology.

Eonjay1541d ago

Expect that it doesn't look pretty or good.

garos821541d ago

Microsoft are getting "AAA"games wrong,it looks like they took it literally

lfPetrini1541d ago

Crytek = fancy graphics, nothing more. Since the frist Crysis.

Allsystemgamer1541d ago

The first crysis was a good game.

snipab8t1541d ago

Typical N4G SONY fanboys disliking anything Microsoft.

Foxhound9221541d ago

Haha nobody was basing the game until they saw gameplay footage. It's not their faults it plays like crap. Could it be that the game just isn't very good? According to you, gameplay footage didn't mean anything when basing a decision on a game. I pity you lol

davidj881541d ago


The video has nothing to do with N4G or it's user base whether bias or not, IGN comment on their experience with the game and because you can't disprove the legitimacy of their opinion you attack fans of the competition.....smh

ziggurcat1541d ago

typical xbox troll not watching the video or reading the article in order to realize that it's IGN being highly critical of the game, and has nothing to do with "N4G sony fanboys."

kenshiro1001541d ago

And this is supposed to be a next gen game.


Gardenia1541d ago

I cannot understand why nobody could see with the first trailer that this game is nothing special. Probably Xbox fanboys disagreeing with me saying this game is crap

waljaber1541d ago

are you alright !! dose it look and play that bad?

Eddie201011541d ago

Crap multiplayer and Micro-transactions, not looking so good for Ryse.

ajax171541d ago

Yeah, after watching it I got really pumped!....To replay God of War III.

Ghost_of_Tsushima1542d ago

Wow they really hated the game. Seems nearly everything about the game is a mess or just plain sucks.

die_fiend1541d ago

They're crytek - don't know what fun means

JackOfAllBlades1541d ago

They know what tech demo means though. Huehuehue

LogicStomper1541d ago

Incorrect. 'Fun' is subjective. What you consider 'fun' may be boring for others. Don't go spreading your disease onto others.

Imalwaysright1541d ago

So it is his opinion that Crytek games aren't fun and it is his comment. Is he pretending that he is speaking for the world?

You should take your own advice and spread your deseased logic somewhere else.

mt1541d ago

everything is a mess except for graphics it is good. i'll give them that.

plaZeHD1541d ago

To be honest the graphics aren't even that good. I mean even a current gen game has a better character model than Ryse.

_QQ_1541d ago

@plazeHD its funny how you genuinely believe what you are saying.

Rhaigun1541d ago

Sad part is, Steve Ballmer said this is the one game that defines the Xbox One experience.

SilentXCaspa1541d ago

And that is why he is stepping down.

ABeastNamedTariq1542d ago (Edited 1542d ago )

Good gracious, they really didn't like it haha. I don't like how they said it was button-mashy, that's a turn-off for me. It's not my kind of game, but hopefully they get the issues sorted out by launch. I don't know how you can fix a camera though (with two months left).

FlameHawk1542d ago (Edited 1542d ago )

Very clunky and full of glitches.
EDIT: As said by many IGN users
Press A to win, maybe that is why they are saying it is repetitive.

jackanderson19851542d ago

i do believe they've gotten rid of the command prompts on screen and changed it to just colour highlighting for the final release.

and while those pics/gifs do show glitches there's still a minimum 2 months till launch so they could be fixed tomorrow :P positivity is key buddy ha

FlameHawk1541d ago

Yeah I don't doubt that the glitches will be fixed but the multiplayer gameplay itself doesn't look that fun.

pyramidshead1541d ago

The best one I've seen is "set the A on fire" lol Lost it when I saw that. All in good humour of course, it tickled me.

ape0071542d ago (Edited 1542d ago )

honestly the gameplay/control/collision detection/camera looks clunky and sluggish in the MP

hope the sp do good, sp look epic though, "looks"

CrimsonStar1541d ago

I agree Ryse is one of my most anticipated games for next gene I hope its good , it will be heartbreaking if its bad .
