Ryse: Son of Rome Review - NowGamer

NowGamer: "Ryse: Son of Rome is a game that places style over substance and, as such, it quickly degenerates into a repetitive and unimaginative QTE-em-up that is far too often boring."

Oh well, X1's knack i see.

I was expecting a little higher on the score but damn 5.5 is not good, especially since sessler gave it 2/5.

EDIT: Just seen some other scores rolling in, not good.

5, 5.5, 6, 2.5, 7.

NewMonday1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

Knack actually got plenty of 8's and 7's, but for Ryes this is the first score above 5


sorry! a few 6's started to pop, my bad

@ newmonday.

actually that's not true.
Try doing some research before you post.

How on earth did you get so many bubbles while posting with such ignorance?

NewMonday1768d ago


I remember you predicting an average of "8" for this game, man you were waaay off weren't you?

kiz26941768d ago

[email protected] Because he said what he saw? how is that ignorant? Your reaction was such an overreaction. Makes me think you butt hurts a bit. Accept that this game is going down the drain as we speak. Polished turd is still a turd :P

BBBirdistheWord1768d ago (Edited 1768d ago )

actually, in true NewMonday fashion, he edited his post after he saw my response. So now it looks like his post is less than it was before.

Still it, does nothing to invalidate the concurrent reviews which occurred at the same time and in the same place as this review, at the time his comment was made:

Saying Ryse only got 5's and 6's is plain ignorance. I have posted proof, in realtime.

Please don't shoot the messenger, angry fanboys!

Who cares they are both turds!

pyramidshead1768d ago

Someone needs to check if lifeisagameok is..well..OK.

Also cannot wait for the spin blog post by MisterX.

INB4: every outlet giving it a bad score is Sony bias or paid by Sony or Sony actually had the journalist sent over and sat them down in a controlled environment as Yoshida played it in a separate room and shouted his thoughts about it for them to write down.

NewMonday1768d ago


I understand the bad reviews are making you upset, but their is no need to lash out at your fellow gamers

if you like the game buy it, many people enjoy Knack for what it is and you can do the same with Ryse, don't be a slave to numbers.

Nope it's the x1's lair. The same amount of excitement and hype for those two titles followed by disappointment.

PSX041767d ago (Edited 1767d ago )

just press cross and watch the cut scene this is ryse and this is every xbox titles ... if anyone want a game with 9 and 10 mark score just go with Sony titles

MightyNoX1768d ago

Shill Defense Force are GO!!

windblowsagain1768d ago

Ryse is an adult game.

Knack is a child/adult game.

Some will still like both.

I'd play both, that's the only way to know what they are really like.

chrissx1768d ago

When a game like Knack gets better reviews than ryse you know its just that bad

kneon1767d ago

Even the traditionally pro Xbox/Anti Sony sites are giving it scores of 4-6.

So another crytek games, looks good and that's about all it has going for it.

tigertom531768d ago

still has a higher score then knack averge in the mid 60

SwordandShield1767d ago

Yeah but Knack wasn't hyped as much as this game.
