Ryse: Son Of Rome Review | EmpireOnline

The greatest achievement of Ryse: Son Of Rome, and in pure technical terms there are many, is that in cribbing various elements of other well-established franchises developer Crytek has somehow managed to create a game that stands on its own merits. Ryse takes its two most overt influences – the ferocious ultra-violence of Sony’s God Of War series and the slick mechanics of Rocksteady’s Batman: Arkham games – and dissects, embellishes and expands each to create an urgent, visceral and cinematic hack-and-slash adventure. (Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One) 3/5
