Ryse: Son of Rome review | DigitalTrends

Ryse: Son of Rome is a first step. That’s what it feels like, at least. Crytek’s Microsoft-published Xbox One launch title is exactly what it needs to be: simple, straightforward, and pretty. The sort of diversion that anyone, from gaming newcomer to joystick-twirling veteran, can spend a few hours with and end up with a sense of what their new toy can do. What it’s not is forgettable.

3.5 isn't bad...if that is what you are implying.

Ryse is kinda like Lair for PS3. It was visual power house at the time of launch. But it had very poor controls and lack luster game play. But I remember them playing this game up before the ps3 launch like it was going to be the killer app. Just like Ryse turned out, a glorified tech demo. And before that, the PS2 had the Bouncer. Beautiful grapics, but poor game play.

interesting you brought Lair up. I actually never understood why people didn't like Lair, I think it was the poor reviews. I also like the message of the game. It had a very critical message for war and tolerance at a time when we were going to war. I always thought that one of the reasons the game got bad reviews was because it was released at a time when people didn't want to hear about peace and anti war ideas. Anyway, if Ryse is as good as Lair was, then 3 is a bit low in my opinion. I'm not getting the xbone myself (at least not yet) but I hope all gamers enjoy their decisions this holiday. happy gaming ho ho ho

Patience you must have my young padawan.

Hey it still could be fun but let's all be reasonable about how good launch games are... There's a lot of heavy hitters left in the years yr to come.

Ryse is like a call girl with no teeth, and a bad back. It's going to be a bad experience.

Kydawg1733d ago

Hey some people like call girls with "gum job" capability. Also I expect all my call girls to have a broken back when I'm done with 'em! It's only a bad experience if I don't get a Ryse.

To me, it was mediocre from the get-go.
