The Combat of Ryse: Son of Rome | TrueAchievements

The combat in Ryse has been created for immense enjoyment, challenge, rewards, and even to frustrate players a bit. It's all about the rhythm and flow when taking control of the lead man, Marius. Marius himself was never designed to be a brute on the battlefield who hacks his way through everyone he faces. Instead, he is a gladiatorial acrobat who makes precise and calculated blows with his sword and shield on each enemy. Crytek have set the combat up so that it flows with ease, and the player can annihilate wave after wave of enemies without even the tiniest scratch. Risk and reward is the aim here; push yourself for those huge rewards, or go too far and lose everything. If you can time your moves perfectly, then those rewards will increase.

There are no pre-determined combos in Ryse. Every move is available right off the bat and you can utilise those in any way you see fit. Crytek have given players the maximum potential of creativity so that they can jump straight into the gam... (PC, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox 360, Xbox One)

Correct the level of QTE slow motion game plays by itself. But the graphics sure are pretty. To bad the gameplay sucks.

Beautiful game! Nice and violent like it should be, and that is the most realistic grass in a game i've ever seen.

Graphics look nice, but gameplay honestly looks very boring and easy.

The game graphics are the best ive seen on a console and the combat looks like it has depth reminds me of a more fleshed out arkum city. what will the sony trolls say now?
Allsystemgamer  +   817d ago
What is arkum city?
MagnusX  +   817d ago
my mistake batman Arkham city
HammadTheBeast  +   817d ago
Killzone and Infamous look better for graphics on console in my opinion.
MRMagoo123  +   817d ago
dont expect agrees no matter how obvious it is that they both look better, the xboners seem to think DR3 looks good too lol, i have a feeling they just got used to lower graphics after having 360s so they are fine with it.

Graphics do look really good for a launch game. Gameplay looks kinda repetitive and unexciting.

I'll need some hands on time to make my verdict.
