I played Ryse: Son of Rome’s multiplayer for a bit and walked away hopeful and optimistic. Maybe even a little in love. It’s that the controls are so smooth that performing something as awesome as “attack a guy in front of you and defend from the one behind you,” is as intuitive and seamless as simply pressing forward and X to then press back and A. What comes is a badass motion where you shield bash the guy behind you for even attempting to attack you. The QTEs that plagued the initial presentation we saw for Ryse: Son of Rome are now gone and replaced with something that disrupts the experience a little less. If you attack an enemy enough, they’ll have a skull above their heads signifying you can finish them off with a QTE sequence. They’re not every five minutes and as annoying as that presentation had made them seem."
