Game Informer reviews Ryse: Son of Rome
WTF, um, why is the IGN video review embedded here in the GameInformer review topic? I hit play an was like ??? I've seen this already and it was an 6.8 on IGN, GI gives it a 6 flat though.
A lot of mix reviews. Generally mediocre. I tough the graphics would have given it a better score.
Wow... I have been subscribing to Game Informer for about 7 years and in my experience, they are one of the most forgiving publications when it comes to reviews scores (I think mostly because of their partnership with GameStop and all of the access they get from publishers and developers). So, if GI is giving it a 6, it is likely not a very good game. But, I think most people were expecting this. Beautiful but no substance.
Shadows and dust.
After all the hype and noise, I think we can all say now that this game is the biggest dissapointment of next gen
Ironic the x1 has one of the highest rated launch exclusive Forza 5 and now the lowest rated one. Well that and lococycle.
Actually Resogun has a higher average score than Forza 5. EDIT - My bad… you said one of the highest, not the highest. Oh well I didn't hit disagree anyway. :D
Am I the only one noticing they are all spelling "disappointment" wrong? I am no grammar Nazi, but every single person . . . Nice ghost edit, GTgamer. Good try. :p
Well damn Knack got a 8 from gameinformer and some people said ryse is their most anticipated launch game.
Game informer recently describes Ryse as being about as fun as "dialing phone numbers" so if anything 6 is higher than expected from them (unless dialing phone numbers is more fun than an average game lol). The low scores from every other publication are more of a surprise. I expected polorised scores, but they're mostly just poor. I'll play it anyway like I played Heavenly Sword anyway. If it's truly bad I just wont play it for very long!
Please don't lump Heavenly Sword in with Ryse. Heavenly Sword is a stellar game and a major cult classic for those of us who had a PS3 in the early days. The only knock on Heavenly Sword is that it was short, but, man oh man, it was beautiful at the time and the story and game play were awesome! There is a reason that they are making a movie out of it!
Well sure but Heavenly Sword didn't review well. It had nice facial animation, it had swords. It's practically the same game! No but really, I liked heavenly sword. Liked it a lot. Despite reviews. I might like Ryse a lot, I wont know for sure until I play it. Like Heavenly Sword. That's all I meant.
I just love the karma the Xbox fanboys are getting. Lick those wounds and back to the bridge. You'll no doubt find something else to troll later on down the track.
Knack is better than this game no doubt.
No wonder they waited one day before the Xbox one releases before embargo was lifted.
Come on, Game Informer. I mean, have you SEEN Ryse?
