About what I expected. The game looks good but the gameplay looks bland to me.

He says it reminds him of Knack, not including the pretty graphics, saying that the gameplay is boring and repetitive and the story isn't very intriguing.
MusicComposer  +   299d ago
Except Knack got 3/5 stars and Ryse got 2/5 from them, that's pretty crazy. Ryse is also only around 5 hours long, half the length.

OT: I wasn't expecting much from this game. Boring seems just about right if the previews were any thing to go by. That good review we saw earlier wasn't even a real review. Curious to see what the rest will be like.

First of all, Ryse is only 5 hours long?!?!?!

Second:

" The story is cringeworthy"
This is a crytek game we're talking about, so yeah.

And I know this sounds harsh, but I'm pretty glad its bad, I'm geting a PS4 and was kinda pissed that I'd be missing out on this game, now I'm just annoyed how I'll never play Dead Rising 3 lol

Insomnia_84  +   299d ago
Knack is better than Ryse!

CONFIRMED!!

Microsoft: "XBone has the best exclusives"

I don't think so!

More exclusives than PS4 on launch, one with the lowest scores of the next gen games and last gen graphics (Lococycle) and the most hyped turned out to be borefest (Ryse)

I think the most unsettling thing is this pay for progress structure. This BETTER not make its way into all games. Game design will go down hill to appease this sort of thing. I hope to no end that no other devs will follow. MS can do it their first parties are shit anyhow so I dont care lol, just hope it dont ruin other games.
Studio-YaMi  +   299d ago
Just as I thought,a mediocre game with good visuals,like all other Crytek games.
kickerz  +   299d ago
Sorry guys I take it back . Ign gave it 6.8. Guess I won't be buying that game . Had high hopes too.
starchild  +   299d ago
What's clear to me is that, with a few exceptions, most of the best games this season are multiplats, not exclusives.

That's not to say that people can't get enjoyment out of some of these exclusives. Individual taste varies and even if the majority finds a game to be "average" it might be more than average to you.
DragonKnight  +   299d ago
@minimur12: You should check out Tara Long's review of Dead Rising 3 then.

http://www.youtube.com/watc...

@andibandit: Neither Riderz1337 nor MariaHelFutura are responsible for the review itself, so why does it matter which of them submitted it?

@DARK WITNESS: Adam didn't review Knack, Tara Long did. We have no way of knowing what he would have given Knack.

@Xbox fanboys like JokesOnYou: Although I loathe using Adam Sessler to be correct on this, I told you that this was going to happen. But just because Ryse is scoring badly, doesn't mean you can't have fun with it just like people have fun with Knack. Now I think we can table the issue of both of those games wouldn't you agree?

"Wait for the real reviews or you could end up looking stupid!"

Ahhh yes. Wait for the real opinions.

As much as Sessler obviously favored 360 and has carried that over to XB1, first demanding 1080p then backpedaling, this score is a bad sign. If anyone was going to overrate Ryse, it would be Sessler, and like him or not his name is big enough to count as a "real" review.

Just wanted to let you know, you're pretty bad at trolling lol. The true kings here on N4G are Frigid and Belking.

On Topic:

It's pretty funny, I thought that even Microsoft's biased sites would rate Ryse high. I knew the gameplay was going to drag this game down.

Knack metacritic is 56.
Ryse is 61...ouch!

And it's not the number 1 hyped game...That would be Forza 5.
trancefreak  +   299d ago
Killzone was bad arse despite its short comings.
Novistador  +   299d ago
No matter how you look at a 2 is bad and a 3 is just meh. Both exclusives have left much to be desired. They look great but (and no surprise here) lack in the game play department. Crytek can never make a good story this im not even remotely surprised with. The hack and slash game play seems fun, but I refuse to buy a game that only plays for 5hrs.
FlunkinMonkey  +   299d ago
This is surprising, from Sessler?! This is probably not good news for reviews.. But whatever, if u like the look of it, get it... 99% of reviews i've seen are complete FUD with an agenda.

I would like to however point out that the counter for humble pie is that a way for all the idiots drilling KZ reviews.
showtimefolks  +   299d ago
This is not surprising I expect this game to be mid 6's and some 7s and maybe few 8ish reviews

Overall in the 60 plus metacritic

Launch games aren't great I just think people over expected. Wait till late 2014 for some awesome games. But launch games have been better so far. It's just some games will not turn out great
Lo
What's sad is fanboys get happy when a game gets bad score, knack got bad scores and Xbox fanboys were yeh ps4 launch games suck and now that Xbox one games are getting about the same sores now ps4 fanboys are doing the same

Than there is the fact that Xbox fanboys are overlooking so many PSN games that are getting high 80's scores yet only pointing to knack and now ps4 fanboys will bring up Ryse

BRW:

Correct me if I am wrong wasn't Ryse a current gen game for xbox360 and original kinect?

Also very disappointed that crytek hasn't learned anything from their past. Crytek graphics can only take you so far

I agree Show, all these fanboy's wishing ill for the "other group's" stuff, is a sad reflection of the morals (or complete lack of) our society produces. It's all about me, my opinion, and what I'm entitled too, screw anything else. LOL we are all gamers, yet it seems some are ready to take this war of toys to the street. Sad but true, I don't know what to do about it, but try to stay logical, and not make any of it personal. I fail at that at times, but it doesn't make it any better or more acceptable.
I mean you can have two folks that really agree 100% on an issue here, but have one attack the other just for mentioning Sony, or MS in the comment. Even though they agree about it, just because a certain Corporation was named, even if the other person was referring to both MS and Sony, they feel the need to ATTACK. Pretty pathetic if you ask me, but I can’t claim innocent of doing the same thing. Just sucks our world is in a state where people will fight, and even hate over a hobby that’s supposed to be fun.

All those poor souls who bought this game, now it is too late they are already shipping. Classic Microsoft. Keeping the embargo until the very end then bang low scores all over the place. Microsoft Xboning people yet again.
Mystogan  +   299d ago
Knack has 56 that's under 60 which means you should save your money, if you're not a fan of the franchise.

Ryse has 61. Which to me means its worth the money if its your kind of game and you have nothing else to play.

above 70 means you should definitely spend your money if its your kind of game.

above 80 means that you will enjoy it regardless of whether or not its your kind of game.

That's all me though.
Clunkyd  +   299d ago
lol even PolySoft gave this game a 60
HugoDrax  +   299d ago
Showcase title, nothing more. It still will sell enough to warrant a sequel, and maybe then Crytek will improve on it's gameplay. I'm still purchasing this title tomorrow, as I love Roman history :-)

As far as KNACK! eventually I'll pick it up once it's on sale, I did enjoy the demo.

asmith2306  +   299d ago
For me launch titles are all about graphical showcasing, end of. PS4 and X1 both have similar stories when it comes to their launch lineup. The good stuff always comes down the line, which is were I think Sony will excel, like last gen. Their 1st party studios are ace. The PS4 even has the slight advantage in the multiplat department this gen as well.
Riderz1337  +   299d ago
Aww they just took the review down. It wasn't supposed to be put online today so that's why. Anyways, we know the score it was a 2/5.

The only thing he listed as "like" was great visuals. The rest were dislike.

Exactly so where did the review Go? I clicked on the link and it took me to Forza 5.

Yes they took it down. I think they accidentally put the review up on their website too early. At first, when I tried to put a direct link to the video it said "This video has not been made public yet". I instantly knew the review had gone up early so I had to put a link to Adam Sesslers page instead of the video. So now Forza 5 shows up, which was his last review.

Sorry guys.

He's one of the few reviewers that I feel I can relate to on any level. I'm pretty disappointed about this review. I didn't expect some game of epic awesomeness but I did at least hope for a 3.5 out of 5.
SpiralTear  +   299d ago
I agree with @MajorAly that Adam has had his share of overreactions, whether it's the God of War IV problem or the PS4 rant on Twitter, but as a writer, he's really good at what he does. He does tend to articulate himself a bit too well (he kind of words up his sentences), but I still like the way he examines the games. It just works well to me.

I honestly expected a 2/5 for Ryse, but as the review embargo date approached, I still had a bit of hopeful curiosity that the game wouldn't be that bad to the critics. So much for that.
Lukas_Japonicus  +   299d ago
Buying it regardless of the scores.

"Saving private Romulus"

Haha.

Seems like its exactly how i said it was going to be MONTHS ago ....great looking but with repetitive, clunky combat. This is Crytek after all......

But by the time i buy it it will be at least half price so its all good.

Damn, the review was pretty brutal, but I can see how the gameplay can get a bit stale overtime. Guard and hack, slow-mo into QTE, repeat. Tbh the multiplayer looked more impressive than the single player, the changing environments and the need to manage incoming waves rather than fighing one enemy at a time looked appealing.

Slow-motion kills and pretty visuals can only get you so far. It's hard to take Sessler's word on everything, but overall the game looks like it played it safe in the gameplay department. It's what you would expect from Crytek really

"Yo dawg, I heard you paid $60 for your game, so I put in microtransactions so you can pay for content you already 'paid' for"

MT's are some of the dumbest things to come out last gen. They act like it's a generous offering, as if it's a favor to the player, when in reality it's a poorly veiled grab at more profits.

It's shameful imo to have people pay for any content available the same day as a game's release. Just rediculous

And this one?
http://n4g.com/comments/red...

"At least Ryse is better than Knack." Seems like you're trying desperately to convince people of that, perhaps even yourself.

We all know you prefer Xbox. Nobody minds that. But it starts getting pretty pathetic when you have to keep rewriting the rules so you have something positive to say about the games/console you prefer. Knack isn't actually as bad as Ryse(if only because the kids Knack aims at won't mind the repetition like adults will). Comments about which next-gen system has the better games isn't just about exclusives because you say so. The 360 didn't win the console war based on marketshare. Having 9 trophies- the last of which you got years ago- doesn't make you well-versed on PSN.

You PM me with some long message about me supposedly spewing BS, but at least I'm not moving goalposts.

wow AAA a stuff right here folks lol.

Crytek are like the Michael Bay of the video game industry. I have come to realize their games are 70% blowing sh!t up and over-the-top action sequences with pretty graphics, and 30% worthwhile story.

i was hopping the game would do a bit better since it reminded me of the movie Gladiator but i guess it's all graphics and no substance.

Guess the only worthwhile launch game on the X1 is Forza5. Even then the game is half complete and full of microtransactions.

Certainly not worth spending $500 at this point in time. I advise people to either get a ps4 or wait till March next year to get the X1.

Knack looks great for what it is. It was never trying to compete with Ryse. Knack is 1080p too, but I'm not sure if it is 60 fps, I think it is. Knack was meant to show off the ability of the ps4 to handle hundreds of objects. I actually enjoy the game in small doses. It is repetitive, but I'm not trying to beat it in one setting like game reviewers do.

His review makes you not want the game but I dont know. I have seen it and it looks like it appeals to me.

Knowing the politics in gaming and that hive mind, he gave Forza 5 a perfect score so you know they will have to balance it out. Ryse new IP sacrificial lamb.

I havent played the game to disagree buy I never like when someone is trying to tell me whether to like the story art style or dialogue. I have been watching Spartacus and other roman based stories and have enjoyed them.

I even have issues with the way he described combat.... I mean when you do a general breakdown you basically blocking, attacking and finding the enemies weak spot during a pattern. I mean this is a game.

I respect Adam and his opinion but I think I will have to see this one for myself.

A lot of reviews gave Forza a 7. If they were all be honest, that is probably what it deserves. It's the same game, shinier, with less content as Forza 4. Why doesn't it get the same old thing treatment Killzone received? Even so it is tracking low for Forza. Now it doesn't appear either system has that killer app. Just a typical launch.

No, just No. One somewhat agreeable review will not make up for the years of inconsistency and fanboy drivel. This just softens the blow for a brief period of time, NOTHING MORE. He's still untrustworthy and a hypocrite until proven innocent.
