Ryse: Son Of Rome Review | GameGrin

It’s been a long road for Ryse, once a Kinect only Xbox 360 title; but you’re not here for a history lesson and that’s good, because Ryse isn’t here to give you one. Ryse manages to display the greatest aesthetics of any Xbox One launch title yet is a let down in almost every other department.

this is old news, but it still stings a little. i remember when ryse was THAT game. THAT system seller...smh

I have played it for quite a bit of time. It is far better than 3.5. Its not a perfect game that is for sure but its not 3.5 bad. 3.5 is a score you give to a game that is broken in some way, major game halting glitches or horrible graphics & voice acting for the system its on. This game has none of that.

Yeah, I totally agree. It's definitely not good enough to be a 10 but it's also definitely not bad enough to be a 3.5. IMO I'd say it is simple but enjoyable. The story is simple but enjoyable, the combat is simple but enjoyable and the MP is simple but enjoyable. I understand that everyone has their opinions and is entitled to them, but after playing Ryse I can't see how someone could feel it deserves as low as a 3.5/10.

Seeing as a score that low in pretty much every review system in existence on every gaming publication means the game is genuinely terrible or a technical mess and Ryse is neither, I don't see how you or others could actually justify the score.

"Many, MANY sites disagree"
Well seeing as there are only two lower scores out of the 69 posted on Metacritic, you are completely wrong.

I know, everyone really needs to follow YOUR rating system.

No game should get under a 7/10 unless it's BROKEN. Especially an Xbox exclusive with pretty graphics; NO game with pretty graphics should get a 3.5/10, bro.

"that is pretty much how every review system in existence on every gaming publication works"
-So the majority of sites say that 3.5/10 = major glitches and bad graphics? With gameplay only kinda sorta playing a role? Yeah, okay.
"Only games that are genuinely terrible or technical messes get scores that low. Ryse is neither"
-Many, MANY sites disagree.
"I don't see how you or others could actually justify the score"
-He said that the "Gameplay is shallow, repetitive and unrewarding". I don't care if the story is godly, the graphics are amazing, and it's 100% bug-free; If the reviewer thinks the gameplay is bad, he has justified giving it a low score.
"seeing as there are only two lower scores out of the 69 posted on Metacritic, you are completely wrong"
-Plenty of scores pretty close to this one. An additional half of a point or 1 doesn't mean that they disagree.

When the average score is 60 and some site gives it a 35, that is an outlier. Just like a score of 85 would be an outlier.

Really? its not the best game but this review is just garbage.
i played up to part were his buddy dies by the barbarian women but noway this game is that bad.
too much fanboy bs.
i just look at the review and all his points are true but to be an 3.5 game means its unplayable buggy mess and ryse is not that.its worth a rent.

Ravenor1677d ago

Boudicas outfit reminded me way to much of Jack from Mass Effect 2, leather straps which I can't quite figure out why they're there. Nipple protection is my guess.

Volkama1676d ago

Deebo you're practically at the end of the game. I think you still have to go through the one part of it that is not enjoyable (F*** YOU ELEPHANTS), but you might as well get it done.

For what it's worth I really enjoyed Ryse while it lasted. 7/10 for me, with a "shame about the multiplayer micro-transactions" tagline.

lifeisgamesok1677d ago

This review is clearly console hate or paid for lol

BanginBiscuitz1677d ago

Lmao i really dont think people understand when they release these clearly bull reviews they just look severely bad and very unreliable for future reference. This is a perfect example on why nobody has probably heard of this review site, what a complete joke.

psDrake1677d ago

The announcement trailer got me excited about the x-box one.

My hopes/expectations crushed until I saw the the extended gameplay footage :(

As a ps4 owner, I hope they solve the problems of game mechanics and deliver a better experience for gamers.

If I am not wrong, they hired a dude from Santa Monica who was a lead director in God Of War so this is a HUGE step for them...

Crytek delivers amazing graphs but as we know, graphs isn't the only thing developers should focus on.
