Definitely a rental.
Maybe not even a rental......i do hope it does well enough to get a sequel aha marius is such a bad ass character! Forza and dead rising it is for me then
Thrust,palaven,lifeisgameok, belking,badkolo,lalanana all said this game was going to rate extremely high and all bashed Killzone and Knack reviews. http://williambeem.com/wp-c... Never speak too soon.
Would definitely buy both of those (Forza DR3) for my PS4. Shame that DR3 should probably be multi-plat though.
Now we know why the embargo has been postponed, Microsoft at it's best.
This game is being lambasted by reviewers even saw one that was a 3/10.. Ouch but as I said before this is only launch plenty of games on the horizon for both consoles.. Infamous: Second Son looking at you...
Well that sucks, the graphics are undeniably next gen but it looks like Crytek made some obvious bad game design choices. I'm sort of scratching my head how they could not see some of these repetitive flaws when they developed the game. I mean it seems like a huge oversight on their part.
Looks like each console has a dud. PS4, Knack and now X1, Ryse. I think everyone understands that the real meat on the bone is 2014. Infamous, Titanfall, The Division, Destiny, and Halo. Not to mention the slew of titles that haven't been announced. Neither launch lineup was particularly strong. I don't think there was 1 must have game that sold a system, like Halo did on the original Xbox. In a few months the games will start to pick up.
Ouch.... Metacritic Score of 61 at the moment...not much better than Knack at this point. And Ryse was suppose to be a system seller. Knack was stated from the beginning to be a novelty type throw in game. Don't see to many MS staff saying they have the better launch games now..... Those KSF scores are looking better by the moment. No trolling just stating facts
@Alexander Yeah. A lot of people were quick to jump on those PS4 review scores. I say you shouldn't use your own head instead of blindly following a review, but karma... you know? I guess since the launch lineups are nullified (review score wise) all that's left to compare are hardware specs and multiplats.
Always thought this looked dodgy but honestly I thought it would still average out around the 7/10 mark. Crytek are quickly going down the pan.
Sad, but true. Played this couple of months ago at GamesCom, and the combat really got boring after 5 minutes. It's a stunning game visually, but gameplay wise it can get boring. Definitely the right score for this game IMO.
That or hopefully for people buying Xb1s it gets straight onto games with gold for people who don't want to drop full price on it and still think the first price drop is too much. Well I say hopefully, with MS you need to wait a good 3 years before they turn up on the free games program. It's a shame really, I thought this was going to be MS's answer to GodOW but the combat is no where near as satisfying or free. Plus the lack of weapons, specials and moves no wonder it just gets monotonous. I know it has a gazillion finishers to unlock but getting to the point where you're able to activate that finisher is god awful. I love period games like GOW and ass creed so it is a damned shame this game blows. Another interesting thing I've noticed, this game gets hyped up to hell by the very same fanboys who eviscerated playstation exclusives for being too 'cinematic', and ryse is pretty much the most cinematic launch game on either console, ironic. lol. Every finisher is like a '300-esc' slow mo close up. It's almost as if this game was made for the wrong console purely by that fact, but it's one that Sony would miss without shame. lol. Funny how gamer's tastes change ain't it? ;P
It really creeps me out you went out of your way for that picture.......but true
@B-radical Out of my way? lol used a lil neat program called gyazo. Screen grabbed his comment within a couple of seconds and saved for when the crow was needed. Took no time at all, son.
Yeah could see this coming. 6.8 though? What stops it from getting that extra .2 that would make all the difference lol.
You are not entertained.
here goes another game that microsoft paid now get ready for sony's 10/10 exclusives xbone is done
So it's like knack (repetitive combat)except for adults and with a better story and graphics. I pass. Well, I'll probably get it from the bargain bin in a few months.
The Reviewer have spoken. They are NOT entertained. I on the other hand still need to play it. I remember Conan the Barbarian having the same type of scores and comments. I completed and fully enjoyed that game.
Damn I guess this is why microsoft didnt let reviews out until the today
The only game im going to miss on PS4 at launch is Forza 5, that genuinely is the only game I want that I can't have from the other console. These Ryse reviews have just confirmed that. Ps Ryse and Dead Rising dipping below 30fps target at sub1080p is appalling for next gen.
No one in there right mind thought this game would score high. Every game play video and livestream, while pretty, was boring as hell. The only objective to the game is to fight through hordes of soldiers.
Aint that the same with God of War. Except this is based more on real life and not fantasy.
but no more blockbuster =(
looks like all my predictions were spot on edit: http://n4g.com/news/1395822...
Same, its nice to see journalists not falling for the graphics over gameplay, its quite refreshing.
These are the same journalists who said it doesn't matter if a game is 720p 30fps or 1080p 60fps!
yes, the gameplay looked bland to me from the very moment it was revealed at e3
Well they kind of are, even though this got a 6.8 a lot of that had to do with "high production value". The enemies all fight the same, the bosses fight the same and even your character has a lackluster move set. 6.8 seems high in my opinion for what was said.
This game is getting bad scores
It's knack all over again! The trolls will come and attack......the fanboys will defend......the trolls will say haha the fanboys will say reviews dont mean anything...just like what happened with knack! Hahah man this site is entertaining sometimes tho Didn't say anything about the scores just how people will defend this game and attack aha its knack but in reverse
Actually knack is scoring better than this game lol
If compared to KZ and Knack its doing the same, average 7
Metacritic: Killzone: Shadow Fall - 73 Ryse: Son of Rome - 60 Sooo... really? (Obviously this might change after I post this...)
Deadbyfault. If we are looking at metacritic how are forza 5 and Dead Rising 3 doing?
omi25p: Very well to be fair. A little jealous I won't get the chance to play them straight away (getting a PS4 at UK launch maybe XB1 later), that wasn't the comparison Ripsta was making though.
@omi in that case how about we look at how resogun is doing?
NO THIS GAME IS NOT GETTING BAD SCOREZZZ if you round the 6.8 you get a sevenzz the cloudzz are gone too much sunzzz heat strokezz delusion.
Gamespot also gave it a low score a 4/10 this game was overhyped by u xbots.
Hmmmmm I remember saying not too long ago I have friends that do these reviews and they told me the game is going to score well pretty much anywhere
Since this is a type of game I favor, I'll be picking it up. I'm interested to see how reviews go throughout the day.
Seems good enuff if u like standard hack n slashes ...the graphical leap is the only next gen thing about it... but is that a bad thing?....
standard? the standard is GoW and that's what you should be comparing it to. Ryse failed and i'm kinda upset about that. I love Gladiator.
To be completely fair, God of War is at the top of the genre. Up there with Devil May Cry (OLD Devil May Cry) and Bayonetta.
@wearealegion Castlevania Lord of Shadows was good enough to be on that list imo.
So this game was the most hyped of x1 games. Smh
Xbox fanboys won't laugh with some of the reviews Killzone got anymore I suppose... Dead rising 3 is the launch game to go on the xbox then.
I'll laugh at those reviews, then I will laugh at this one, and finally a good laugh at the people who care about reviews.
Still better than knack lol
Resogun is better than Ryse, Dead Rising and Forza in terms of meta scores; so what's your point
You're comparing a 3 hour 2d arcade type indi game with huge retail games. Try and stay on topic here. And if you think resogun is a system seller, you should wake up.
@Zack_attack which still scored better than the all x1 titles
@Zack_attack Games are games, no matter how or who made it.
Knack is a very fun game. Play it before you knock it.
Well that explains the embargo......
Yep, and now its too late for people to cancel their pre order because they are most likely already shipping.
If people believe the reviews (and why wouldn't they) then they should refuse shipment our send it back unopened. I guess my point is that there is still time not too get suckered into this game. I plan to see if there will be a demo before I commit anytime to it.
Wait for the "real" reviews, they said... LMAO
Range is 3-6.8 right now. It's Lair part two.
I always thought this looked very boring but if you have always liked the look of it then still get it
Well after xbox fans attack killzone in ps4 that has better reviews and graphics than ryse hhhhh this ourturn ps4 win and x1 destroied
Well, I guess this is the reason why there was an embargo.
lol i knew it crytek never makes good games.. and when u jump from an fps to an action game its more fail.. but again if ppl want the game its beter to buy it.. reviews are just opinions
Sometimes in life you feel the fight is over, And it seems as though the writings on Rome's walls, Graphicstar you finally made it, But once your picture becomes tainted, It's what they call, The Ryse and fall...
I'm really not surprised
And so it begins... no wonder why they kept the embargo till the last day. MS truly is a corrupt organization. why would you want to intentionally fool and treat your fanbase like some lab rats?
How is this fooling your fanbase? Nobody forced customers to pre-order and if somebody did they can always return it unopened. Corrupt organization? Lab rats? You're grasping at straws.
how come they left the review embargo to the last few hours before the X1 launch? you can't sit there and tell me they didn't hold it back for a reason. why is it other X1 games received reviews earlier in the week BUT the most hyped X1 exclusive was left till the dying hours? Because they knew by the time reviews arrive it will be too late for people to cancel their preorders. And that is shady.
Guess we know what the first games for gold on Xbox one should be lol. I knew I didn't pre order this for a reason. It looks fantastic but the too simple, like it should be a beta or tech demo. DR3, AC4, Marvel, Madden, NBA 2k14 and maybe zoo tycoon so the kids have one more they can play. Would have loved if crytek would have gave Xbox One a shooter though.
