Ryse: Son of Rome, the upcoming Xbox One exclusive launch title from Crytek has been awared "Best Action Game" award by Paris Game Week judging panel.
Other than this tweet I can't find anything else on it. What games are the runner ups? I wanted to know what it was compared to and beat so I can judge myself. I mean, like did it beat Watchdogs or AC4 or did it beat some no name indies because if it beat something like WatchDogs and AC4 or "insert another AAA game." I think it would make and show that the game is more impressive than some think.
It the only action game of its kind at launch for next gen for better or worse.
It is not the only Action game ready at launch. AC4, DR3, Lego Marvel in my eyes are all action games but were they the competition is the question
Well despite all the hate I think this game is going to be really good, previews have gotten better and better since launch.
Could someone tell me who the competition was?
I think it was Knack
Knack aint action son
@Idba Knack is action. If not then what is it?
AC4 maybe? I know if it did beat out AC4 my interest just sparked for the game being an AC fan and all. I couldn't find any runner ups or who it went against though
LOL knack is a character ACTION game cerny said it himself. why do people keep calling it a platformer. cartoonish character=/= platformer.
Ryse will be awesome and sell millions It's inevitable ;)
its going to be a great game..
I'm extremely intrigued by Ryse...I'd like a little hands on time first though. New "franchises" I always tend to be a little gun shy with until I get to try it.
might get it later when both the console and ryse drop to about half price.
Isn't it funny how when crytek releases a game everyone says they suck but now that it's an exclusive everyone is saying it's going to be amazing? Don't get me wrong it looks good but I haven't enjoyed a crytek game since crysis warhead. 2 was boring and 3 wasn't much better and I got 3 for free...
not a fan of hack & slash but its a decent looking game.
I argue with people who say Ryse is the best looking game we've seen, but the gameplay isn't hack & slash. If it is then so are all the newer Batman games. I've compared it to God of War, but that's mainly based on the setting and scenery, though it's obviously not as heavily based in mythological fantasy. I'm not a fan of the Batman combat, but many are. I prefer the combat in the Souls games, or the more over the top combat of God of War. Anyway, if we don't know what the competition was, the award doesn't mean much.
The gameplay is hack and slash esque. I've played it, and it's really good.
That's cool. I won't argue with you, but others have told me with great passion that the combat is a lot like the Batman games. I don't call that hack and slash but maybe I'm wrong.
By definition, I would consider hack and slash to require a blade of some sort. On that alone, Batman cannot be hack and slash, but Ryse can be.
Point taken. : ) I'm just telling you what I've been told by MS fans on here. I've never played Ryse and most likely never will unless it comes to PS4. I think of hack and slash as being more about the style of play than the weapons, but I see what you're saying. Peace and good gaming, regardless of platform.
i'm buying BF4 for xbox1 at launch, Ryse will be my first next gen gamefly rental
What the heck is the Paris Game Week? Has anyone ever heard of this event before?
