A video which shows off how to perform an impressive 162 hit combo in the rather divisive Ryse Son of Rome on Xbox One.
A thing of beauty to be sure
beauty doesn't equal clunky repetitive combat and uninspired gameplay, sorry
Says someone who most likely hasn't even played the game. I found the combat far from clunky. @georgenancy I guess all hack & slash games with similar combat are boring and repetitive then? I was glad to be able to play a launch game that is a new IP and isn't a generic FPS.
yea i was like...ok thats great and all, but if youre seeing the same thing over and over and over again then wow...nothing special about a combo when the continuity grace period of the combo is that long, where you can freely walk to an enemy a few steps away and continue the combo. I was thinking you can juggle an enemy or something for over 160 moves, which would be pretty epic
yeah the animations look pretty bad. 2:40 when the enemy was running into him was pretty funny
We must of been playing two different games... or did you actually play the game?
@Palaven,you can clearly see the combo being displayed in the attached video is incredibly boring and repetitive,i don't need to play the game to see that
Palaven, I played it. The game is pretty and I give it that. The executions look cool at first but they get tiring to see after a while. Ryse relies on these cinematic executions too much and when you're not doing one, you're going through some of the most repeti repetitive fights ever. This is why visuals should never be the main thing developers focus on. Because then you get a pretty game with average gameplay.
@georgenancy: I am more than curious as to why you choose to click on this Ryse topic? You obviously have no interest in the game.
@Bigpappy i wanted to see this 'incredible' 162 hit combo that's why,but it turns out it was disappointing @Palaven you seem to assume i'm a ps fanboy.The gameplay is repetitive!And to be honest i've never really liked killzone but in no way is it generic
the game is quality! the reviews were overly harsh. a solid foundation for what deserves to become a goo franchise
Anybody who says Ryse Son of Rome's combat ISNT clunky hasn't played DMC 4, Bayonetta, God of War, or Ninja Gaiden.
Yellowflash that's like saying Gran Turismo is clunky because you can't dash between enemies. Ryse does not try to be like those games. The combat is about timing, rhythm, and pattern recognition. It's not for everyone, but there really isn't any need to scream and shout about how it isn't to your tastes whenever a Ryse topic comes up.
what freakin hack n slash game isn't repetitive?
@bigpappy My brother and i had a blast playing that game.ms and crytek may continue work on the planned sequel and with god of war ascension director on board now,we can expect combat in the sequel to match the awesome graphics.
Yeah that actually looked like fun to me. I didn't pick it up with my xb1, but I'm hoping Santa gets it for me for Xmas...
*Dad-Sits down* *Dad-Son we need to have a talk* *Son-What is it papa?* *Dad-Son I'm afraid Santa isn't real* Son- http://nooooooooooooooo.com... :P
Mhunterjr, it's well worth a play through. If you have the option to rent or borrow that might be the way to go, as it's limited beyond that. Or if you believe in the "vote with your wallet" theory then by all means vote.
That's the thing, it does look like a rental to me, but rental options are all died up where I live, so I probably won't play it until the price drops our someone buys it for me...
......it reminds me of lair pretty but game play is horrible.
Guess it's still cool to hate on Ryse.
Cool to hate on Ryse? The game was average with a 61 metascore and a 5.6 user score on Metacritic. Just accept it. The game didn't completely such but it wasn't that great either. Gameplay obviously wasn't the focus. It was made to show off what the hardware can do with visuals and it did it's job well. It just failed on the gameplay side of things.
best next gen graphics.. (i dont care and not judging gameplay)
many seem to 'don't care' about your opinion
The guy playing the game enjoyed his self and thats what matters most.
How can he enjoy It when it isn't being played on a PS4? *average remark made by 70% of the PS fanboys here* couldn't agree more with you. Fun is what games were meant for. Some people just don't see it/want to see it. To each his own though.
Jeebus fudge that was underwhelming...
So much potential, hopefully it can get a sequel that mixes up the gameplay a bit. Maybe a more robust multiplayer component too. That said, I want to try this game. I personally enjoy the "repetitive" hack/slash games like this (thinking Dynasty Warriors), just have to take them for face value.
The executions look neat but the combat is to repetitive for me. Its just the same slashing movements and shield bashing over and over again. I prefer games like DMC (not Ninja Theory's abomination) over this where the combat is a lot more varied. Also the framerate looks choppy to me but I guess I'm so used to solid framerates that I notice any minor dip.
why does everyone always sound like a bunch of high school drama queens when they argue about a game they done like but someone else does. Who cares if you dont like it, does it bother you that much?
Sorry, but that is the most boring, underwhelming "162-hit combo" I've ever witnessed. When you hear a high number + combo, you expect something exciting.
You are boring and repetitive as well...
Thanks man. :) I didn't say repetitive, but thanks for giving me another adjective to describe Ryse's gameplay.
Both Microsoft and Sony had their next gen stinkers. Knack was horrible and so is Ryse. Even Beyond Two Souls sucked hard too.
You forgot Killzone and Fighter within. Those were reviewed badly too.
True, those games weren't great either. Killzone is better than Ryse, Knack, and Fighter Within Though
Mid 70's metascore isn't bad compared to 60's for Knack and 20's for Fighter Within and Lococycle. Actually, Killzone is only 7 points shy of Forza 5....
sure the people who actually bought this junk is trying to defend it now
Look extremely boring ! It looks like Batman Arkham's battle mechanic without Batman's gadget, and fighting at slow pace. In Batman Arkham series, players have to use as many forms of attack as they can. Repetitive move will bring the whole score down. Batman Arkham has more enemy types too. The worst thing of Ryse is to put boring and meaningless QTE for each enemy. Killing Spree should be more energetic and chaotic, doesn't it ?
That was terrible. Crytek should have studied up on Gladiator or Spartacus before making this mediocre crap... http://youtu.be/QT_zpYjWhlI http://youtu.be/hjsuGB3S92Q... http://youtu.be/bKtePkxZe70 Hell, at least this has style.... http://youtu.be/UbF1-uE_8EY Ryse's combat is horrible...
