Preview: Ryse is intriguing and might not totally suck - Canada

It’s difficult to judge Ryse from the small portion of the game shown off at Fan Expo Canada, especially after only experiencing the game’s multiplayer mode. One thing is for sure though, it doesn't totally suck. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

From all the games you've tried what had the most impressive/better graphics ?

This is a question for the autor.

the last trailer shown at the Halo tournament showed this game looks good, better then the all gray original trailer, certainly the best on the XB1 at least.

but as for gameplay if that is not nailed down before full game production starts then their is not much that can change.

Well opinions have varied but the author who seemed very balanced said its hard to judge because although he enjoyed the gameplay his concern is how will the gameplay hold up over 20 to 30hr campaign(it's probably only 12-18 which is the norm for this type of game). So to elaborate, I assume at worst his criticism/problem with the game is that unless there is some variation in gameplay it will be repetitive which unfortunately is something frequently found in these type of games(hack n slash). I definitely hope thats not the case but I'll find out for sure on Nov 22nd.

I'd say Ryse did. It's one of the best looking next-generation games I've seen so far.
pedrof93  +   730d ago
By the way what where the games you've tried ?

No matter how good the rest of the game is, the abundance of QTE is unforgivable. Sheer laziness

Heavy rain says hello .
Master-H  +   730d ago
I didnt like heavy rain much, but at least u were playing with a civilian and it was focused on the story so there was no deep combat system needed, on Ryse though you play with a freaking Roman warrior , u need a good and varied combat system , they should take cues from God of War. GOW games have the best implementation of QTE's i've seen so far.
pat_11_5  +   730d ago
There really wasn't much QTE in the game at all.

I saw it while I was at Fan Expo. It looked good. Keyword LOOKED. It played like your typical GoW-styled action. So, it's a lot of people's cup of tea.

Personally, not mine. I prefer actions games with a lot of technique. I.e. Ninja Gaiden, MGR:R, Bayonetta.
MazzingerZ  +   730d ago
Nothing to do with the gameplay of God of War, play both games first
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   730d ago
I did play both. They are extremely similar. Both cinematic action games.
ssj27  +   730d ago
Kenshin is full of it a total troll!

He clearly said he "saw it" referring he saw Ryse gameplay..
And then he claim that he play the game.

I'm not a detective but you don't need to be one to see that you are trolling and full of it.

It's funy to see users claim that this game looks "amazing" when it juat looks like any other regular next gen game (on the same quality level of watchdog, maybe slightly better)
ANd more funny to see people hoping for a good single player campaign and history in it, when we all know CRYTEK sucks at it! Their other campaing games where repetitive plain and boring. this has a higher chance to fallow that Trent.

I ryse my case lol

@SSJ27

Yeah, I said I saw it. In addition I also said "IT PLAYED" implying I played. And you're right, you're not a detective, clearly.

Look, I'm not vouching for the quality of the game, I'm just saying from the look and feel. It's good. Is it amazing? Well I won't know any time soon since I'm not getting an X1 in the foreseeable future.

Besides that, this is CRYTEK we're talking about. They got graphics down. That much is for sure.

Ninja gaiden oh man, what happen to the good ol ninja gaiden black/sigma days :(

Technique + MGRR = are you serious??
Kenshin_BATT0USAI  +   730d ago
Play it on a higher difficulty than normal and you'll get what I mean.

I can understand that some people didn't like the direction MGR took. Which is fine. The story was horrendous, I give you that. But as an action game, it was really good. Better than most. And it was Platinum which made it(they made Bayonetta as well)

Of course, it's one of the best looking launch titles at the moment.

The multiplayer looks fantastic. Haters are going to naturally do what they were to do and that's dance the dance of hate.

But us gamers are looking forward to this great new IP for the Xbox One.
Bigpappy  +   730d ago
The force is strong with this game. It kind of feeds off the hate. Fox News is going to have a field day with those execution move, causing it to sell even more.

This writer is more my type of Canadian than that woozy one from IGN (Thought the kills were too gruesome). That should stick to all things Mario. This write looked the game in the eye and took it on. I sense he was expecting a lot less than what he discovered. I think this will happen to a lot of gamers. They will read a lot of negative 'quick time' stuff, then when they play the demo for themselves, will be pleasantly surprised.

Shadow of Rome is much better than this next gen wannabe. Good graphics but the gameplay looks broken

Dont be disappointed if the meta for Ryse will go over that of shadow of rome tho...
GiantEnemyCrab  +   730d ago
What a joke. A Capcom PS2 game better than this? The best graphics I've seen of any of the LAUNCH games and it plays to me like a God of War. Nothing wrong with that at all and the multiplayer looks to be different with the crowd being involved in the fights.

Love shadow of rome, it popped in my head the first time i saw Ryse. i hope Capcom gets off their asses and bring us a new entry in that iP, still remember the awesome gladiator levels it had.
thetruthx1  +   730d ago
If you watch the latest trailer of this game and you don't think it looks next gen you should be getting an eye exam right about now

And the developers said it's going to look even better come November

I understand if some may not like executions but they're my favorite part of the gameplay
CrimsonStar  +   730d ago
People just don't want to except that this game looks good . If you don't like the way it plays , that's OK its your opinion ..... but. If you say this game looks bad graphically you need to go get those fan boy goggles surgically removed asap .Just a little advice .
