Ryse is alive, Crytek 'really, really happy with it'

Missing in action Kinect title still hitting milestones, dev confirms to CVG (Crytek, Ryse: Son of Rome, Xbox 360)

I really wish this game wasn't Kinect only. I want to believe this will be the game to make me want to buy one but I'm not holding my breath. I've already been severely disappointed by Kinect Star Wars :(

Don't let the E3 presentation fool you, Ryse is planning on being a Kinect/controller hybrid.

Thanks for the link, although I think there was something lost in translation, will I NEED a Kinect to play or what?

Anyway any proper judgement will have to wait until we actually see some *real* gameplay.

Also, why does the trailer only show playing with Kinect if it is to be a "hybrid"?

Anyone notice the name of the guy from Crytek working on the game?

Nick 'Button'-Brown

Talk about ironic.

Unfortunately, I think you will need a Kinect to play the game. I think it's the same case for the hybrid Steel Battalion. You're right though, the transalation is kind of muddled because consumers are being thrown 3 different phrases: Kinect only, Kinect/controller hybrid, and "Better with Kinect" (the last one only being optional).

I think MS only showed the Kinect part of Ryse's E3 presentation as "target gameplay", like Kinect Star Wars. They wanted to show Kinect's fluidity (unsuccessfully btw) with graphical detail not yet seen in a Kinect-required title.

As I hate playing games with motion controls or sensors, I'll just drop an "It's alive, it's aliveeee!" joke and run away.
