Ryse: Son of Rome review: Tedious maximus-Joystiq Review

Ryse: Son of Rome falls into the trap of your typical launch game: it does well to show off the power of the system, but it's slim on substance. Production value aside, Ryse is short, easy and lacks the punch of other action games. For all of it's pomp and flash, Ryse: Son of Rome is a shallow bore.

Proof that pretty graphics do not make a great game.

Those graphics sure are pretty. Prettier than most I have seen.

Pretty graphics do not make a great game has already proven multiple times last gen.

NewMonday1763d ago

actual game-play graphics are not that special, and many reviews report frequent graphical glitches, that's why MS mainly show screenshots and cut scenes in previews.

SniperControl1763d ago

Just look at Crysis 3, amazing amazing graphics, p155 poor boring gameplay.

Ryse looks really good, what a let down.

Another missed opportunity by Crytek. Looks like they really fu**ed this one.

This is going to be a great day, lol. Fanboys trolled PS4 reviews all week long last week... Especially Killzone.

At least Killzone is gorgeous and has an AWESOME multiplayer mode. The single player was still pretty fun except for 2 sections.

so basically, you are saying this is great because Schadenfeude?

Way to go buddy!

Crytek at it again with great visuals but crap gameplay...

Seems like a nice tech demo.

I think it's official. The embargo was definitely there for a VERY good reason. Feel sorry for the people it catches out who can no longer cancel the pre-order.

Volkama1763d ago

I don't know, I think the embargo was there to get each game a space in the limelight and I think Microsoft had high hopes for Ryse.

For MS these reviews are probably more of a bitter surprise than a successful conspiracy.

After this reviews ps4 is officially destroy x1 but we all must wait until polygon review they will give this game 10

OrangePowerz1763d ago

Even Polygon only gave it a 6.

Obscure_Observer1763d ago (Edited 1763d ago )

Polygon rank it as an 6. IGN 6.8

What a let down. Pre Order cancelled.

Feel sorry for Crytek´s guys though
