First Impressions: Ryse: Son of Rome | Clearance Bin Review

First Impressions is a close look at the crucial first hour spent with a game and its' ability to draw you in or turn you away. Somewhere between a review and a preview.

Everything you’ve heard about Ryse: Son of Rome is true, at least so far, but one thing has been left out. Yes, the game looks fantastic, the story is a little cheesy (but lets be honest, we sometimes like extra cheese) and the combat is simple. The thing most people have left out? That it is rather fun to play.

At first glance I didn't realize "Clearance Bin" was the name of the site. I thought, "That was quick."

No, but seriously, wait 4 months and pick it up cheap. I wouldn't be surprised if this is a game they start giving away as a downloadable title soon enough based on the reviews.

Dude, you have come a loooong way from having only one bubble.

I am pretty hopeful that Ryse does fall into that quickly discounted game slot as I don't feel good about paying $60 for it but at $40 I am much more inclined.

From all the trailers and gameplay, its atleast worth a rental from redbox. If its a decent game I would love to buy it to support future sequels. I mean assassins creed was somewhat decent and the second one became a genre defining game this past generation. The sequel that they are planning is set in medieval times with dragons and magic. If this game fails they may or may not get to the sequel.

do you know when Redbox will start with next gen titles?

I wish I knew, I just assumed that they would have it near launch cause I heard a story a cpl mnths back they would.

It will definitely be clearance bin material by summer. It happens. Most launch games meet this fate.

After playing halfway through, the reviews don't give this game justice at all. Its awesome!
