Ryse: A slasher that feels like a halfway house between Gears and God of War | Mirror

On first impressions at least, Ryse appears to be the runt of the Xbox One’s litter of launch exclusives.

A swords-and-sandals slasher that feels like a halfway house between Gears and God of War, it seems very much like a current gen wolf in the next generation’s clothing.

I like the Roman setting, story, etc. Hope this game turns out to be good. Can't wait.

What is with all these articles that are practically duplicates lately. They even have the same headlines almost.

slow new's day I guess.

Belking2670d ago

Can't wait to play this game.

So the shitty overkill manly man dialogue from gears mixed in with double the QTE's from GoW? GREAT.

fattyuk2670d ago

but but you can talk to the game

"qte press Y button"

"qte press down down up left"

elhebbo162670d ago

QTE can be good at times, heavy rain is a good example but w.e its a xbox one game lets hate on it anyways. sigh

Wni02670d ago

different genres... im saying who would want to play a god of war game that has crappy dialogue and quick time events for EVERY SINGLE FIGHT.

Bigpappy2670d ago

I like the complaints. It will push Crytec to fine tune the combat.

Am I the only one who doesn't care for the Rome and or Mythology based games full of QTE?

caseh2670d ago

You've only seen a demo that was no doubt rushed out in time to be shown at E3.

Shenmue had its fair share of QTE, it also had a sweet combat system that was like Virtua Fighter. The game was still awesome!

PS4 all the way for me but after seeing Ryse and Titanfall demo'd on the XB1 i'm a bit gutted that they won't be on the PS4.

Gster2670d ago

I agree, Titanfall is lookin like a lot of fun. Dead rising 3 is lookin good too, but I'm hoping these two are times exclusives and will eventually see their way onto PS4. Ryse does look very good, but I'm not mad about QTE's in general. If there was an option to turn it off, which I heard, I reckon it could turn out to be a big hit.

HugoDrax2670d ago

Don't be gutted, just buy an XB1 sometime down the line. I'm getting both at launch, and maybe a gamefly subscription to get a chance to play most of the releases since I'll have both consoles.

Salooh2670d ago

Titan fall is just a time exclusive..

Salooh2670d ago (Edited 2670d ago )

Why disagree ?. They already said they wanted to focus on one system which is a soft way to say time exclusive but they will bring it to other platforms when they are done. The prove of time exclusive is releasing the game to 360 which doesn't have the awesome cloud tech that make titanfall possible lol ..
