Ryse: Son of Rome Review | XboxExclusive

Johnny McNair writes:

"Ryse: Son of Rome will allow you to act out your 300 or Spartacus fantasies, but at its core it is just a hack-n-slash game. The best element of the game is the stunning graphics that show you what the Xbox One will be able to deliver. More variety in gameplay would have been welcomed to make this one a killer app, but as it stands Ryse: Son of Rome is more of a taste of what is to come in the Xbox One’s bright future."

An 8/10 for Ryse when most review websites gave it a 5 or a 6? Oh wait...the site's called xboxexclusive.com....ahh makes sense...

mdluffy889d ago

Indeed, this isn't even funny...

FANTA1180889d ago

yea i figured , just like sony sites rating their own games ...

Bathyj889d ago

Nothing wrong with a dedicated site rating exclusives, but if you want credibility you have to be a bit reasonable. An 8 doesnt sound like that.

FANTA1180888d ago

man i played ryse a bit and it plays very well.

not sure if its an 8 well see how much more diverse it gets. lol

Hicken888d ago

You're not an unbiased source, yourself, so you agreeing with another biased source doesn't exactly do anything for your credibility OR theirs.

Seeing an 8 for this game is so rare. But the name of the website explains this I guess

SlapHappyJesus889d ago

Again, as FANTA just above you stated, this is no different than all but one of the Sony-centric sites giving Shadowfall a 75+ rating.

Bathyj889d ago

Are you comparing Shadowfall to Ryse?

Most people who played it admit it plays very well and is a great game. Some cant get over the fact that it doesnt revolutionise the genre (cos EVERY game has to do that right) or they didnt like the story.

The gameplay and graphics are very solid to awesome. No one denies that. Face it, the media has loved to hate Killzone scorewise since "Halokiller" and the E3 trailer.

Ryse is getting no where near that kind of positive response about the gameplay. I'm not going to list all of its shortcomings, look them up if your interested. Lets just say if Killzone has higher scores it deserves it.

Dunban67889d ago

If they are going to give Ryse and 80 they may as well give it a 100

Its like robbing a bank then patting yourself on the back because you only took $10,000 when you had the chance to take $100,000

LOL!
That comment is going to fuel me thru the rest of my work day!

How many Sony focused sites gave Knack great scores when most other sites gave it a thumbs down? I love how some of you make it sound like PS focused sites don't do the exact same thing.

Ryse's scores have been all over the place regardless. Some people like it while others hate it and others are on the fence about it. Maybe you should just play it and make up your own mind about it rather than going by someone else's opinions or immediately assuming it's garbage because it's on a competing system?

Bingo.

You can read and watch all you want but nothing substitutes a Tv screen in front of you and controller in your hand.
