I agree and don't believe it is a bad game

It has incredible graphics, good gameplay and a great story

Legendary difficulty is one of the toughest challenges I've had gaming

"Review - It's Not That Bad "

Sounds more like an undeserved higher mark due to sympathy... Keep convincing yourself that it was a well worthy purchase;-)

ZodTheRipper1562d ago

Funny that right above this article is a Killzone review titled "Pretty but dumb" with a lower score than this. I didn't play Ryse (and I'm glad I didn't spent money on it) but after watching some Youtube videos this must be a joke.

nolifeking1562d ago

I've always taken "Not that bad" to mean bad, just not very. It's putting the kid gloves on when giving an opinion on something.

JackISbacK1562d ago

wow same words goes for your beloved stupid killzone shadow fall.

He doesn't need to convince himself of anything, he knows whether he enjoyed the game or not.

I know I enjoyed the game.

But hey, keep trying to push your agenda and convince me I didn't like it. Or don't.

no games use to be bad ,you stilll can find some fun part at every game ,ryse and killzone are the same coins with other faces ,yeah both are preety ,but blad,but still fun.

indysurfn1562d ago

wow he is doing the game a favor with the 7.8 rating, but the way he worded did NOT do it any favors.

Instead of saying "the game isn’t nearly as bad as they’re all saying." He could have said "the game isn’t bad, I dont agree with what they are saying". Its like a back handed complement.

Saying a isn't as bad as they are saying is still admitting you think it is bad. So change your wording to match a 7.8 rating.

theWB271562d ago

Or...the reviewer used the exact words they wanted to use and gave it the score they felt it deserved. Metacritic has it at a 60 overall...7.8 seems like it isn't as bad as everone is saying it is and isn't exactly a score that sets the world on fire.

It's ok's ok.

Z_-_D_-_31562d ago

This game deserves no more than a 7.5 no matter which way you slice it.

KonsoruMasuta1562d ago

@Z_-_D_-_3, the game is average at best. It was lucky to get this score! Most of the scores for this game are lower than this.

Naga1562d ago (Edited 1562d ago )

@ Z D 3...

So you've played it? And all the way through? Surely you must have if you venturing to contravene a reviewer with personal experience. Pray tell, what were your favorite and least favorite moments?

Gamoc1562d ago


Considering that a great many other reviewers played it and gave it lower scores I'm not sure if it's relevant whether or not Z D 3 played it.

I just noticed. Some of the launch games for the new generation of consoles, including Ryse, have a lower score on Metacritic than Alpha Protocol, a game that was named one of the worst games of last gen.

Sarcasm1562d ago

That's just the thing, those are launch titles. Alpha Protocol wasn't a launch title and had years of development, so it had no real excuse to be so bad.

MorePowerOfGreen1562d ago

Media that joined the Sony bandwagon basically punished MSFT's offerings due to MSFT having a better lineup with more buzz worthy titles.

refocusedman1562d ago (Edited 1562d ago )

Coming from someone that played the game, he's right "its not that bad" but, unfortunately its also not that good either. Unfortunately for us gamers, Ryse does mediocrity very well.

Funantic11562d ago

I've played all the AAA exclusives of the PS4 and X1. Ryse is better than most of the next gen launch games. Ryse is definitely better than Killzone. Dead Rising 3 is probably the best out so far.

ABeastNamedTariq1562d ago

You can't see me, but I'm squinting at your comment right now. Something doesn't add up here....Hmmm... *strokes invisible beard*

KonsoruMasuta1562d ago

Ryse was average and repetitive. Resogun was better than this.

OpieWinston1562d ago

Resogun? That piece of garbage wannabe sidescroller Geometry Wars?

brometheos1562d ago

@Opie Garbage? Don't hate man. Its the highest rated next gen exclusive.

Strikepackage Bravo1562d ago

Resogun is geometry wars, again, PS4 trying to be xbox 360...
