Ryse: Son of Rome Review | HAL

Isaac Wagner: "Ryse is a stunning looking game, but that's just about all it is. It has a solid melee system, but that's all it has and it doesn't even come close to the greats of the genre like Batman: Arkham Asylum. And it lacks a compelling story to push you forward, despite it being very well performed and shot. The only thing that pulled me through it was the incredible graphics and its decently satisfying combat. It's good to see a new IP at a console launch that isn't about aliens or elves or dumb stuff like that, but that only gets it so far." (Next-Gen, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox One) 3/5
