Ryse: Son of Rome was an Xbox One launch title that has been left to collect dust, but Crytek should set aside Crysis and give Ryse another shot.
It was a great game, it had issues but it can only go up from here.
It was just ok. Looked really good for an Xbox game though
"for an Xbox game" Way to subtly throw shade there. It looked amazing compared to any game at the time it was released. Never played it myself though, wasn't really interested in it personally. Plus it came at a time when I didn't own an Xbox console. But it was at least different than the usual copy/paste games we get. So I hope it gets another chance sometime soon.
It was a crytek game though
It was a stunning game on all basis. One of the standout games for Xbox as a whole. I ended up buying on pc as well… and yes nothing looked better than it in PC at the time either. Nothing just ok about it, definitely needs a sequel.
@snookies12, don't pretend like the Xbox One didn't struggle with being gimpled by its tiny pool of ESRAM as a frame buffer. It was significantly weaker than the PS4.
Metacritic 60, user score 6.4. I'm not alone in putting it into the "ok" category...
@snookies Haven't played it but at least you know enough to defend Xbox over it. The game did look good, for an Xbox game. That's not some "subtle shade," it's full on reality. I remember it being nearly the only graphically decent game on the Xbone for like the first two years after launch, and graphics were that games strength
I really enjoyed it. Bought it at launch even.
The qte's were disappointing though. God of war was doing it back in the ps2 days. As gorgeous as the game was, the gameplay needed to be updated.
I really liked the original Ryse but Crytek doesn't have the funds. The mismanaged their properties and let EA raid them with Crysis for the duration of their relationship. Right now they are working on Crysis 4, I doubt they can spare resources to work on a Ryse sequel.
It would have to be funded by MS, I really liked Ryse sure it got repetitive but the setting visuals and story were good
MS should have funded a sequel to Ryse and Sunset OD. Two good franchises they definitely needed last gen.
MS is too busy trying to become the next EA, Ryse wont be on their list of titles to finance unless it gets a hipster makeover with lootboxes.
I recently bought it for the steamdeck and have to say... 60fps is a game changer. I really wished MS had gotten a one x patch or series boost mode option but sadly, nope. Other games that definitely deserve a second chance (esp on steamdeck/pc) are quantum break and sunset overdrive. Both deserved 60fps support on one x / series but you have to go to PC for that. Rumor has it Crytek had plans for a Ryse 2 but due to the low turnout for XB (at the time) it was shelved. They really should give this another shot. i dont care if its multiplat on PS and XB and PC and Switch... just so long as part 2 gets made.
The game is automatically boosted on Series X
sorry... but it's not. It still runs at the same fps the XBO did.
Game was good enough, not great. Graphically it was top notch. Still holds well till this day.
It only needed more enemy variety and few more movesets or weapons to use. That would have made the experience tons better.
It was a good game. Only time I saw quick time events actually make me feel engaged.
One of the best looking games of last gen imo. Should have had a sequel by now. Doubt we will ever see one though.
It was the best looking game in that time even won a Siggraph award for best graphics over many titles, killzone shadow fall , last of us infamous ss etc. https://n4g.com/news/156193... https://n4g.com/news/156428...
I thought a second one didn’t happen because the two parties couldn’t agree who actually owned the Ryse IP.
Evolve was a great game, Ryse had its chance as a launch title. They had plenty of exposure.
It was a blast to play. The campaign was short for sure, but still entertaining. And the HIGHLY underrated arena mode is simple, but seriously worth playing with a friend. Had a blast customizing my gladiator and going through all the rounds with the moving/changing arena. So much fun.
You know who deserve a second shot ? SHADOW OF ROME
Ryde on Xbox and The Order on PlayStation are the two games that often come to mind that scream "do a sequel". A few improvements in both areas, ala ACII (personally preferred Altair but Ezio was cool and the game itself definitely an improvement) would do wonders. The fact a decade later we have Alan Wake 2 tells me never give up hope.
For a launch style game it looked 8ncredible was very lineier so they could turn up visuals it's worth a part 2 or at least a series x upgrade
Loved that game, i dont get the hate or why there wasnt a second one, its Rome, so many battles to explore in so many parts of the world.
