Excerpt: "The six hours it took me to play through Ryse: Son of Rome was really enjoyable. The repetitive combat becomes mindless button mashing over time even if the gore can get to be too much. The reasons to play Ryse may not be the same for everyone else, but there’s a compelling aspect that goes for my pleasure centers when dismembering and walking through these gorgeous recreations of Rome’s inner and outer creations. If you don’t have an Xbox One, I do recommend Ryse. If nothing else, you can now ask others: “Can it run Ryse?”"
