Xbox One immerses you in the ancient Roman world where you'll become soldier Marius Titus and embark on a perilous campaign to restore honor to Rome at any cost.
Revenge, Betrayal, and the Gods Themselves
Ryse: Son of Rome plunges you into the chaos and depravity of the late Roman Empire. Through the immersive realism made possible by Xbox One, it tells the story of Marius Titus who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarians. Seeking revenge, Marius must embark on a perilous journey of revenge, betrayal, and divine intervention. He joins the Roman army in Britannia and quickly rises through the ranks to become a General. As his war against the barbarians escalates, his quest unravels: to find his vengeance, he has to return to Rome. As Marius, you’ll engage in brutal combat and lead your forces into massive battles to save Rome from threats to its very existence.
Cinematic Immersion in the Roman Empire
Ryse: Son of Rome presents a cinematic recreation of the Roman Empire in breathtaking detail, from the northern reaches of Britannia, to the coliseum and the very heart of Rome.
Brutally Realistic Combat
The brutality and intensity of Roman warfare are brought to life in vivid, visceral detail, thrusting the player into the chaos of close-quarters combat, where you can see and feel the emotion on your opponent’s face.
Find Gladiatorial Glory

Through online multiplayer, Ryse will plunge you into this brutal world.* Take on the guise of a gladiator and enter the Coliseum to fight side-by-side against an everchanging array of enemies, in dynamic environments, to the roar of thousands of spectators.

- strong visuals and cinematics, even the menus are stylish
- good enough story and good enough use of a small subset of the Roman mythos that is usually ignored, not focused on...the invasion of Brittan, Nemesis, Damocles aren't well covered. I don't recall these elements in a game before...
- I enjoyed the epic "Saving Private Ryan" moments (the one they showed at E3). marching ahead with your army, blocking a hail of arrows and then returning fire was quite fantastic.
- some good boss battles
- good non-intrusive way to use quick time events by highlighting the enemy in a specific color rather than an obnoxious gigantic A or B or X or Y on the screen...
- the non-myth part of the story and reality is that Rome was a rather brutal imperialist (obviously) force. thus you're kind of playing the bad guy here. asking an audience to sympathize with the Roman Empire is a little weird. but hey, I haven't seen the Romans in a game or entertainment product in awhile, so why not.
- button mashing. you can get through the game hitting little more than X or Y. shoulder buttons, triggers, others largely unused, indicating a rather simple game. in fact, if you removed the blood/gore, it could possibly be a child's game. it reminded me more of a fighter than a 3rd-person action title. you can miss half the quick-time events without any consequences. you will hit the same damn buttons over and over and over and over again. you will quickly tire of this...
- repetitive looking enemies
- I can't remember any game that mapped shield to the A button. most games use a trigger for this (e.g. left trigger block, right trigger attack - that's fairly intuitive). it was difficult to get my brain to unlearn that A generally means Action/Advance/Activate, etc.
- The game needed more epic army moments and strategy. Instead, thousands of enemies to button mash...not enough variety
- not much to upgrade...one weapon, one armor, one etc....More/better RPG elements could have helped kill the monotony and kept the player invested, but it's largely not there...just health, some executions, etc. i barely noticed or appreciated the effects of whatever I upgraded...
- Once you advance over an obstacle or through a door, you can't go back, so your missed collectible is gone. Restart the game I guess...I hate that.
Overall, it was well worth the price I paid, $39.99 new. It's possible for Crytek to improve upon what they've done here. Obviously they have a premier gaming engine that fuels Crysis and others...I wouldn't give up. Less button-mashing, more variety, more character investment, more RPG elements and they might have something here...They could keep the Roman Empire theme and try to build a new franchise. There simply has to be more for the player to do though...
The graphics also, man, they really show off what next gen can be. If this is just the start of next gen, I am really looking forward to 2-3 years down the line when the developers have really honed in on how to best code.
The characters and settings are absolutely stunning, and the cutscenes look good enough to be clips out of a movie. The storyline is immense and enjoyable, with a fun "revenge" plot. On a side note, I believe I completed the campaign roughly four times. The multiplayer arena is surprisingly fun, as well, especially after you've mastered the controls and some of the more complex levels.
The biggest flaw with this is that it could become repetitive, and most of the reviewers will tell you it does. However, for me, at no point during the storyline was I bored and the multiplayer only gets repetitive after playing it for several hours on end.
Overall, it's one of the better games for the Xbox One that is currently out.
