Ryse: Son of Rome definitely doesn't suck and might end up being the Xbox One’s big system-selling launch title..
Alot of mixed previews on this game...hoping for good reviews is first game I'll prob get
They had to search deep and hard for this article because I'm hearing the complete opposite about both the Xbox one and Ryse. @ B-radical: I'm actually a Xbox fan, but i'm not going to pretend like I'm liking what I'm seeing. You are not bettering the Xbox by accepting all it's inadequacies. By doing that, you're just being a blind fanboy. If you want Xbox to get better, take off your goggles.
You got proof they had to search deep and hard? Shooosh chootz all your recent comments show nothing but negativity to the Xbox brand, just grow a pair enjoy your ps4 and stop living under a bridge.
Fanboy really mate? Guess that's why I mostly game on PC then consoles.....but yup if you say I'm a fanboy I guess who its true I go from ps4 to ps4 article dissing it...oh wait no I don't...maybe I'm not a fanboy? Go get a girlfriend or something.....
@whathappened Really? http://n4g.com/news/1388328...
Im with you whathappened, Ryse got completely murdered today by loads of websites, this is literally the only one i have found with slight positively behind the game
wow! some nerve you have....lol inadequacies?You gotta be kidding. xbox-one may not be perfect but don't act like the competition is any better. All he said was he was hoping for good reviews and you tell him to take off the goggles? All you did was reveal that you really don't like xbox, just like a lot of people pretend to do to cover up the fact that they never intended on buying it anyway. You got the nerve to mention inadequacies too...SMh
There are many people in the gaming news industry that have played Ryse and enjoyed it completely. So because someone at Gaming Informer hated it that negates everyone else's opinion? I don't care if you're a fan of Xbox that doesn't hold any weight with me buddy, especially here on N4G where I'm almost certain the term "fakeboy" originated from.
I was kind of put off by a couple of those early previews today but then I watched this full gameplay trailer and I love the combat....only part I can agree with the previews on since I haven't played it is that it will probably get boring/repetitive but I guess that depends on how you play too.....AC is repetitive to me but still great, Batman AA was repetitive but still great, I think that is true for almost every hack n slash still is a question of how much and is it annoying to the player because of it? The last hack n slash I thoroughly enjoyed the combat from begining to end without ever feeling it was repetitive was Bayonetta, maybe because the combat is so fast and the attacks were so freakin sweet, I mean except for the subpar weird story that was literally one of the best hack n slash games ever imo, very under rated game. OT Now again I just see Ryse now as a game I have to play for myself because everytime I see more of the sp in action I like what I see: http://www.dualshockers.com...
I can honestly see this game getting an 7.00 on average. Possibly even a 8.00 the graphics are gonna be what the majority of the high score is about. That and the different stylized executions. I can't see 8.5's or 9.00's with this title, at least not in the first installemnt. There is ton of potential for a sequel and Crytek can really nail the combat as well as AI count (Alleged Xbox Live Cloud compute) This particular can only get better from here on out.
Based on what we have seen from all the outlets after the preview I would agree with you. I think this game is going to fall into the 7-8 range on average. Some will go higher, some will go lower but overall its good, not great scores but also not horrible.
I mean't to say "This particular Ip can only get better from here on out." @Lace I agree. Like I said the graphics and animation are literally spot on but the gameplay will get knocked heavily by most outlets. This game has huge potential. If there is ever is a sequel in the works I believe Crytek can have a more intimate relationship with the combat. Considering this was a full Kinect game on 360 first at one point. I'd say job well done.
I wish all that gladiator stuff interested me, but sadly it doesn't. Hopefully there will be a demo, so I can try it out, and then decide if I want to play the full game or not.
Confirmed no demo sorry.
System seller? No it looks like an $15 Games of Throne game. IMHO. I hope its worth the price.
Ryse is the best looking game next gen IMO :) Dunno what you are seeing , should have gone to spec savers!
good thing everyone has opinion right thrust?
I think so too. On Xbox One. Hope MS doesn't 180 anything else like the free music I read about. ^~^ Happy Gaming! I'll be getting it later when I get One.
IMO Killzone and Infamous look better. Killer Instinct to an extent as well. But as you said, opinions.
O... I hope you aren't insulting Game of Thrones....
From the gameplay footage I saw, it looked great. Nothing groundbreaking, but still a worthy title.
Hack and slash games are a love'em or hate'em.
I agree. Like Diablo...you love it or it bores the hell out of you. I loved it to death. However I think Ryse's issue is that people didn't really expect a hack-n-slash. I didn't. I have it preordered. I've read a few things about the game now and it seems beautiful but less than stellar gameplay. So I think I'll change my preorder to Dead Rising 3. Maybe I'll wait until the actual reviews come out instead of just previews.
lots of mixes previews on this one, some people love it, some think its very repetitive IDK its an iffy one
It's without a doubt more graphics than gameplay. But to be honest, that's exactly what I want from a launch title.
so far gamespot, kotaku, ign and canada say the game is cool...ill keep watching .
I don't know guys...This was written by the same guy who said Killzone:SF was "great, but not amazing" and even though he loved the Dualshock 4, still didn't see any "interesting launch games to make people buy a PS4". Then he writes this about Ryse, just because he loves the Roman Empire age setting and thinks it's a lot like God of War??? I want to read what he writes about the Xbox One next week and cross-reference his opinions on both systems.
o.canada: "PlayStation 4 is very impressive" "Xbox One is promising"
Not to sound like a jerk but its Canada ! They like everything and can't possibly comment on how bad Ryse is. Please take it with a full dose of humor ;)
Bullshit! I'm Canadian and I don't like you! Enjoy you're coming martial law and Fema camps bud. ;)
one thing we gotta remember some of these websites giving rise a bad preview gave cod ghost great reviews one of this generation poorest port.
I know I'm in the minority when it comes to liking Ryse, but I had a great time with the game.
I got an invite to try out the game @ the Xbox tour on the 14th. . I can't wait to try out the ONE and Ryse.. I know i'll love it.
