Ryse: Son of Rome is a fun beat-em-up game even if it's not worth the full price. Our review from Bunneh3000.
What's the point in a review of a 4-5 month old game? Little late to the party.. Lol
I actually think journalist rush early reviews...
@edonus Putting 'I know I'l get disagrees on this pony ranch but HAY!!!' is what will get you the disagrees.
I feel like you were saying something else when reviewers were sling the same to games like The Last of Us.
I disagree, and fail to see the correlation between what you say, and the Ryse Son of Rome Review. ^_^
No surprise there. The correlation, or relation period, is in him having a different response to this article being late than he had or would likely have had to a late article regarding The Last of Us. That was a pretty weak attempt. You might wanna make sure the quote you're using is actually applicable next time.
O...kay. So long as the crap you wrote makes sense to you, it's all good. ^_^
This game was actually pretty fun to play. typical popcorn game.
He said it is not worth the full price. Ryse has a full single player, with a good story, along with coop or Solo arena matches. The solo matches being VERY challenging. So if that is not worth the price, I have no idea which game release on X1 or PS4 is.
You know, some people just like to bitch about every single small stuff. They're never happy. It's easy to be happy. Just enjoy the game and quit complaining.
I love it, played through the campaign 3 times and am looking forward to doing it again. Strange that it gets so much hate, really fun game.
Ryse is a great game and was unnecessarily slammed.
My favorite next gen game so far
I can remember this game being the first piece of footage I saw from E3 and thinking, 'wow, this looks so cool'. The gameplay didn't look too amazing or anything, but the setting made it for me. Although, the gameplay did remind me heavily of 'Spartan: Total Warrior', which is a personal favourite ps2 game of mine. Then when I saw it was an Xbox exclusive I genuinely paused and thought, 'I might have to get an Xbox for this'. Was disappointed to see the low reviews and the relatively short length of the campaign. I definitely would of bought an Xbox if this was a better game. That being said, if I ever do get around to picking one up then this'll be in my shopping basket without doubt.
The campaign is a decent length. If they tried to drag it on any longer, it would have hurt the fun factor. The only way they could have made it longer, would be to open the would and added some rescue missions, with exploration and loot with customizable armor and weapons. May be we will get that in the sequel. But make no mistake, this is a very good game as is, and worth the money. Other games have short campaigns with no multiplayer and still sell at full price. I sense a bit of bias going on here, but most reviews have those.
I agree games shouldnt be overlong just for the sake of being long. Pacing is the key and you need to keep people interested the whole way. Example, I barely slogged it out to the end of Crysis 2, and I couldnt make it through Crysis 3. I enjoyed shooting the soldiers, but once the creatures/aliens (I forget which, I was bored) show up I just tuned out. Through C2 I was praying for the end just so I could finish it quick enough to still return it within 7 days. Thanks EBGames.
It is fun, I loved it. The campaign is short compared to most games, but they make the most of the runtime. Pretty awesome experience. I have played through it three times and excited to spend another weekend with it soon.
So behind the times.
Had it since launch still not have finished it love the game just not as much as Forza , same as dead rising have only scrapped the surface but I don't get into single player much these days.
