DS: If Xbox One exclusive Ryse: Son of Rome has been on your radar for a while, maybe this cheapest price yet is right for you.
It's actually a good game. I dunno, it was released at a time where xb1 distrust was at an all time high, and people were negative about anything xb1. I think it's better than the order which is also considered a big budget flop by many gamers. I also noticed favourable steam reviews aswell. I'd give this game about 7.5-8/10.
So true...this game was a victim of the MS hate train and was vastly underated.
I thought it was an epic launch title, my biggest disappointment is the fact that we're unlikely to ever see a sequel. So much potential lost...
I really liked it, the reviews were all right about the repetitive combat but it did feel really good connecting the moves, and it looked beautiful on PC
I give this game a solid 8 if it weren't for the QTE , yes you get to choose the executions but if you don't the game still does it for you and that really sucks, don't play this game for more than 2 hours a day because all the executions are given to you since the beginning and it gets old really quick. PROS : game story will suck you in, the graphics will suck you in, the controls are ok, a lot to unlock here. CONS : Quick Time Events are not well executed , characters keep appearing after you kill them on different levels.
wrong if you never execute there is only 3 qtes in the game and only 1 is mandatory!
Yes you choose to execute or not but if you don't do it right the game still does it for you.
Like evey other game with an execute hmmm. In ninja gaiden 2 execute had no button prompts same with gow and every other hack and slash game!!! Not seeing a problem here. If you dont like qte dont use executes. Simple as that
The game was pretty cool. A Ryse 2 should be made and the combat should be vastly improved.
I would love to see a ryse 2, ryse 1 was a good game, especially at a launch title that still looks graphically amazing.
Oh, is it 2 cents now? This game sucked, no amount of good graphics can save it from that.
go play in traffic then.
sorry about your bad taste.
One of my favorite games ever.
Great value at 10 dollars. Many of the criticisms are valid. It is repetitive. But I had fun repeating the same things for the 6 hours it takes to beat the game. If the combat sucked I would say it isn't worth your time, but the combat is actually quite rhythmic and fun. Except for the parts where you have to shoot. Those parts sucked, but there are only a couple of them and they go by quick enough. And the story arc that sets up the third act is really awesome.
I just bought this. £5.69 is a pretty good deal!
5 dollars. WOW.
Great game, even at full price. This game was the victim of Xbox hate that Don Matrrick created. The gameplay is great and the story is great and the visuals are amazing.
This game needs a sequel. I love the game. Its a solid 8.5 for me
I picked this up for $13 last week, though I'd have happily payed $20... way better than I expected. Anyone else notice how it's almost an Assassin's Creed?
Why are people saying they'd like a Ryse 2? Ryse 2 already came out, it was called The Order 1886. Did about the same critically and commercially as I remember.
