A singleplayer focused game with strong combat but low replayability


Stunning cutscenes with excellent voice acting and animation quality. Ryse was one of those games that gives you that sense of sheer power as your character pummels his way through scores of barbarians and more. The combat is easily the best aspect of the game, and unlocking new "finishers" will keep you engaged throughout as you advance through the campaign. The story line is OK, nothing crazy but not terrible either. The multiplier is... present, but don't purchase this for MP, it's really in the campaign. Unfortunately that means once you're done with that, it's time to shelf it.

One of the most cinematic game's I'v ever played!


Ryse: Son of Rome is absolutely beautiful in all aspect, the story is dense and well written, gameplay is super action packed with lots of combos, sounds are epic and helps to create an epic atmosphere of old Roman Empire settings, and multiplayer and challenges are really fun and enjoyable! the story part is really great and narrates in different locations and with its realistic visuals and fantastic lightning effects, Ryse: Son of Rome has one the the most cinematic campaigns on the market, the gameplay is really great too and I know some people may say it's repetitive, but in my opinion it is NOT at all and it has many diversity and innovations, there's plenty of cool combos and moves which definitely makes your experience more fun, challenging and enjoyable. the musics, soundtracks and voice acting is really well done and makes a perfect atmosphere for the game's settings. the controls are really great either you play it with mouse and keyboard or using a controller, both work perfectly and i had no issues at all! Ryse: Son of Rome is a superb quality game with lots of contents to offer which will take you to an epic journey through Roman Empire settings and becomes an unforgettable experience for you! 100% Recommended for all gamers!

Great looking action game


I played this with my Xbox 360 controller on PC and it played fine. No bugs or trouble with it and using the controller actually made it easier since it was made for the controller. The game itself looked beautiful. Really great graphics and cut scenes. The story is ok....nothing spectacular. You play a Roman soldier who has been killed and brought back by a God to seek revenge on those who wronged him. Standard action game controls and whatnot. Getting there is the fun in this one. The ending was satisfying. I actually finished this game because I had a lot of fun playing it and I wanted to see that ending I'd worked for. There was just one tough part that seemed a lot tougher than the rest of the game and I almost gave up at that point. But after taking a few days off from it and returning I beat it the first or second try. No idea what held me up. Just one of those things where given a rest it will click.

Suprisingly good title.


When I first started the game I thought "I often see it in the promotion, there must be something wrong with it." But to my surprise, Crytek did not disappoint and even created a good hack'n'slash in the ancient Rome. Beautiful graphics and interesting story can satisfy everyone. Already at the beginning of the game, we witness an assassination against the father of the main character Marius and the player's goal is to avenge a dead father and kill all who stand in his way.

A gorgeous exercise in mediocrity


Ryse: Son of Rome looks stunning, but is let down by linear repetitive gameplay and the constant intrusion of cut scenes that didn't end up telling much of a story. The consolation the game offers is that it's short (~6hrs) so that it doesn't get even more repetitive. The core game mechanic is the beat-em-up that Batman Arkham Asylum did so well. Ryse's addition to the genre was to break free of the combat to perform executions - something that broke the original mechanic while adding little to the game. If it wasn't a way to regain health or collect extra experience, it would be more a hinderance than a feature. The extra gameplay mechanics like advancing a legion or picking off archers with spears never really integrated into the game. Gameplay never really felt organic, which is something other beat-em-up games do much better. One final thing to note is the story, because a lot of effort went into rendering the tale. This could have been where the game could have set itself apart by being like a graphic novel. But the story was mediocre, and the amount of time taken to tell the story kept breaking the already fractured gameplay up even further. With a bit more variation in enemies, a more streamlined (and less intrusive) story, and a few tweaks to the core gameplay, Ryse could have been much better. As it stands, it's a gorgeous mess that pales in contrast to the other games in the genre.
