IGN - We played a near-final build of Ryse: Son of Rome, and the news is all good.
I just noticed (after watching the video) that I was smiling the entire time. :o) I mean look at the scene @1:23 and the swinging scene right after that. Oh my geebas!!!
Oh yeah! but the haters are gonna hate!
Or, you know, the informed gaming journalists who actually played the game.
That be a double edged sword my friend! no pun intended.
I am hoping that this would be one of the good launch titles for the next-gen, I really do but thanks to GameInformer's preview, I am worried since it is rare for GameInformer to be negative in a preview for an unreleased game. We will wait and see once Xbox One gets released. Until then, we have to play the annoying waiting game.
Hmm, one says that the game was "as fun as dialing phone numbers" The other one says "and the news is all good." Gameinformer is trusted, as well as IGN... However, I am a fan of Xbox One, but I do know that IGN tends to pump exclusives up from both sides of the fence for hits. I can only judge once its in my hands and I play it for myself.
You have a very reasonable mindset. Previews do seemed mixed. No different then Beyond: Two Souls. Some will love it. Some with think its OK and others will hate it. It's a launch game and very few launch games live up to the new console hype. Who knows though. Gamers will get to try it themselves in a few weeks.
Thank you, this is exactly the point. I personally liked Beyond, but there are people who are either mixed or negative about the game. That is a very good example. Also, games that come later in each generation tend to be better than the launch titles in a huge way so we shouldn't take launch titles seriously since we have no idea what the later next-gen games would do.
Man...don't let the reviews discourage you....the game is awesome, I have played it. However you have to realize that people have different taste. Everyone in the world could say that a game is great, but you may not like it once you get your hands on it. I and my friends found it to be fun, and graphically stunning.
Impressive to say the least. Day 1 for me.
Let's all think of Ryse when people say "oh the xb1 has inferior hardware" or "cod is only 720p on xb1" -_-
900p, 30fps, linear hack and slash. But lets just forget not worry about the "technical" stuff when talking about a "Technical" marvel.
Because the end result doesn't mean anything right? It's all about the numbers of course. /s
It looks good. Do I consider it the best looking next gen title so far? No, but the doesn't make it any less impressive. Given how other games are shaping up on the console, this looks reassuring. May God have mercy on us when Santa Monica release what their working on the PS4.
I hope that yellow and blue color on the enemies can be removed on harder difficulties or just all together. The graphics look so awesome and those colors around the enemies seem out of place with the color palette. Looks like in some parts of the gameplay, you can also turn off that massive amount of text that pops up during fighting?
Awesome! Great to see some new footage from the campaign. I am really excited for this game. I got to play the co-op mode with a friend and we both enjoyed it a lot.
