Crytek has just released a two hours long in-engine video from the cut-scenes of Ryse: Son of Rome that cover the entire story of its title.
In-Engine? I thought Crytek said that the cutscenes were pre-rendered
Pre-rendering has nothing to do with whether or not it was captured from the engine. You're confusing Real-time rendering with pre-rendering, both of which can be done within an engine. (See Uncharted 4's gorgeous reveal trailer vs it's gorgeous in-game cinematic for an example.)
beautiful game. hoping for a sequel
Same here. Even though game play was pretty simple, it was addicting as hell and very cinematic. I felt like I was playing a movie, in a positive way. Great story, great game. Probably my favorite this gen. I know it's a bold statement, but no other game made me feel so immersed since TES: Oblivion. Maybe I'm just a junkie for the whole roman times.
Same here. I swear by the Gaming God's that Ryse is by far the most underated game this gen. However my favorite game so far this gen is Sunset Overdrive. Followed closely by FH2 and Ryse.
Still the best looking game I played. Was pretty bland game play but was decent for a one day rent.
I think so too, it looked just amazing, and the story was so good I don't know many games that I've played just for the story! I really hope for a sequel with some crazy gameplay expansions.
I just beat Ryse and man I'm never going to take internet negativity seriously ever again. This game was outstanding. The gameplay was no where near as bad as everyone said it was. Every kill was satisfying and the game felt great throughout. The graphics are some of the best I've ever seen. The facial animations are life like. The story wasn't the best and it's riddled with cliches, but I enjoyed it for the most part. There's only 2 negatives I have with the game. The cutscenes are long and you can't skip them and the game is far too short. I got the game for free so my opinion may be skewed. Would I have paid 60 bucks for it? Nope, but if you find this game for 20 or 40 bucks I highly recommend it.
Most of the reviews giving it a 1 on metacritic were from users who hadn't ever made a review before. The game certainly wasn't as bad as what many made it out to be. I enjoyed it - looking forward to a sequel. My only complaint was the number of enemies that looked all the same. They build a lil something more like mordors fighting - leave the QTEs as optional for death kills - gonna be a good game.
I also really liked the game and thought it was underrated great story,visuals, and liked the game play im hoping they make a Ryse 2 I would definitely buy it they know not what they need to do to make it that must buy game. They have a goldmine they just need to hire a proper gold miner!
It is a good game. My only gripe was the limited amount of character models. You'll be in a fight with 3 or 4 guys and they're all EXACTLY the same. Would it have been so difficult to create different faces?
Going by Steam user reviews, it looks like most people like the game. It got an excessive amount of hate from internet fanboys. That doesn't mean the reviews were wrong to criticise it. It only lasts 6 or 7 hours, and is quite shallow. The Xbox release was part of the micro-transaction experiment too. As I said about DriveClub earlier, it is OK to take enjoyment from a 7/10 game.
What micro transaction experiment? I didn't buy anything.....
Microsoft went a bit nuts on the micro-transactions when the console launched. Ryse had the whole multiplayer reward structure built on them, forza had pay-for-progress, killer instinct was free to sample, crimson dragon was... Kinda disgraceful. Fortunately they have largely realised nobody wants that. Season passes are their current ride.
"The Xbox release was part of the micro-transaction experiment too. " huh?
Strange how people disagree on this. All of Microsoft's own games for the Xbox One launch window "featured" micro transactions. Forza 5, Ryse, Killer Instinct, Crimson Dragon all had them. There was a very clear drive from Microsoft. You can still buy the gems/gold/tokens and such on the store today if you like. People rightly complained, and the likes of Horizon 2 and Sunset Overdrive do not have the same problem.
I have been ranting about this here since I picked it up in October. The game is like Gladiator the movie, how the hell could that be bad??? Destiny is another game that gets trashed but it's actually a lot of fun to play and no where near as limiting with content as some may lead people to believe. Most people bashing these games don't even play them or played them for less than an hour and made their judgment and pass it off as fact.
Think of the joy I had playing it release day! And loving Rome stuff I was in heaven.
Launch games, particularly, get a lot of hate. Games like Ryse, Kameo, and Knack were much better than reviews would have you believe.
Let's be honest here....Ryse received so much hate because it was an X1 exclusive and at the time people were clamoring for ANYTHING and everything to hate on MS about. The game had a great story, familiar Gameplay and still holds the title for being the best looking console game out today. Unfortunately it fell victim to the hate.
Sadly it was always an Xbox exclusive, it just went from old gen to new gen . People hate way before Xbox one .
By far the best-looking next-gen title.
Yeah, can't think of anything else.
The first 10 minutes have convinced me to buy this. And by luck it is on the Steam sale!! $25.99...wish I had bought it yesterday when it was $20, but still, yay for steam sales!! Looks like the reviews on steam are a lot nicer to the game too. Hope my 4gb of ram doesn't hurt me too much. (Have 6gb but 1 stick is bad).
