Ryse: Son of Rome Review - STN

STN Writes:

If Ryse has got one thing going for it, then it has to be it’s looks. I wouldn’t say it’s got no brains, it’s certainly got some, it’s just that they are more akin to a goldfish than anything else. You see, while the beauty of this game will keep you hooked, the repetitive nature isn’t exactly appealing. Things do get a little better as you progress, but it sometimes feels like a bit of slog to get there. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One) -

Beat the game, honestly, a hell of a lot better than the reviews make it out to be. Hell of a lot better.

How is the story?

Just curious, I love a good story.

LOL, 2 disagrees for asking about the story?

For real, I thought it was very good. Good twists happen. The combat isn't bad either, just go for the "legendary" status and its a blast :)

I'm glad you enjoyed it. It is tradition to crucify a launch game, a new ip for that matter, by the media. Then they wonder why devs/publisher spam us with sequels instead of taking risks. . .Ryse will return, then they'll hail it.

Agreed. Hopefully it doesn't hurt this games sells though, because I feel like it deserves more than it will get. :/

Enjoying it. Halfway through game. And no way you can spam A and X button and live. Takes timing to play game.

Well a company that bought loads of stock of RYSE giving it a mainly positive review, now theres a funny thing.
Really why does anybody even read these reviews.
They hardly gonna say its a turkey ffs dont buy it.
Thats not to say Ryse is a turkey I am sure it is enjoyable. Just pointing out the obvious is all

Ive played the game for about 6 hours and im still trying to figure out why its getting low scores. Im not saying its amazing (it looks amazing) but it definetly plays good as well. Its pretty weird how its getting 5s n 6s.
