USA Today: Like Killzone for the PlayStation 4, Ryse: Son of Rome is the Xbox One's eye candy. It's breathtaking to watch, but its combat can't match the game's epic appearance.
Now people understand why I said rent before you buy.
A little higher than expected.
8.5/10 is a really good score. Im sure you've bought games at that review score and less.....
Yes I have for sure. But I played this game for a bit at PAX in Sept. It's not that it was unfinished at the time. Since people seem to use/say that often. It was the gameplay. Just didn't seem so "Next Gen".
8.5/10??? lool 2.5/4 is like a 60% or something
2.5/4 does not equal 8/10 Ryse currently sits at 61 on Metacritic, if you follow that site.
2.5/4 = 62.5% What a stupid review score system anyhow. Who on earth marks out of 4?! Out of 5 is stupid enough as it is in my books.
lol the math of Xboners
"Who on earth marks out of 4?! Out of 5 is stupid enough as it is in my books." college????
it is time to go to school, boy.
but but but this game is a system seller.. but but we have better launch games
Who the hell rates a game out of 4 !? not trying to be picky here but seriously even a 5 is understandable!
i just finished playing a bit of Ryse story mode and co-op gladiator mode. i dont know what these reviews are talking about, games fun to me. but hey, thats just me.
I don't think your feeling is abnormal. The operative word in your sentence seems to be a 'bit'. The reviews I have read all state that the combat is great at first but what you get at the beginning is what you get 6 hours later.
I rate the game 7.5/16.25
Dust yourself off Lair... You're no longer the laughing stock of the gaming industry... It's Ryses time to shine or burn inflames...
