Hands-on with Ryse: Son of Rome | The Average Gamer

Ryse is a game designed for looking at, not for playing. You run around, follow orders and try not to think too hard about the absurdity of it all. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One)

'Ryse is a game designed for looking at, not for playing.'

The warning signs were there for a while but I thought it turned a corner a few months back. This game, this series if it becomes that, has so much potential. The concept is so good.

"Ryse is a game designed for looking at, not for playing."

It looks like one of the best looking games ive ever seen, the facial animations during executions are amazing, as are the graphics overall but from gameplay videos we've seen, the combat looks clunky and repetitive. Apart from the stylish slow mo executions, the vanilla combat doesn't impress me.

Not hating (i plan to buy this game with my own money), just giving what i think is fair criticism.

i called it. i always said it looks pretty and boring at the same moment. it brought nothing new to the hack and slash genre smh. over hyped. its a pretty game tho.
im sure it will sell well.

Yeah there's a distinct danger of style over substance with Ryse. Lets see how it turns out.

I dont have a problem with that, i enjoyed Heavy Rain and all you did was QTE.

Yea thats what a lot of people have been saying when they got their hands on it, they really do enjoy watching someone play it, just not actually play it themselves

No offensive, but being a woman doing this review, this may not have been a game she could have liked, if it was good.

That GameSpot article was very negative.
