Based on actual gamer reviews, i went ahead and took a chance and purchased this game. I am so glad I did. This game is freakin awesome. Let me tell you right now, the professional review sites were all wrong on this title. I can't remember when they were this far off. I have no idea what they were talking about. Lets break this down as follows.
1. Graphics. 5/5 period. This game just looks Next Gen in every way possible. It blew me away and will blow you away as well.
2. Sound. 5/5 period. The sounds of the game are excellent including the voice acting. The music is set for the time period. Think of the movie Ben Hur. The music is right on the mark following the action on screen perfectly.
3. Story Immersion. 5/5 period. The story moves along at a great pace and is very involving. You feel for Marius (the main character) and want him to succeed. The story builds and will suck you in. You can't wait to see what happens next. This is a pure sign of a well scripted game. Again, the music is right on the mark here as well, complimenting the story line perfectly.
4. Game Play. 4/5. Ok. I will agree it does get repetitive. This is completely bearable given the strong story, strong character development, graphics and music.Read more ›
That said, this is easily one of the best looking games I have played on a console, and that includes having beaten Killzone: Shadow Fall. For a launch title, this definitely is a title to show off to friends, and also holds it's own as a simple hack and slash game.
Hope it gets a sequel with a longer story and more rpg elements (weapon/upgrade variety) but that said I wanted to write a review to recommend this game. I had gotten caught up in all the negative press this game getting and was ready to pass on it, but so far am really enjoy it.
Gameplay is slightly repetitive as others have noted, but it did not distract me from the overall experience as hacking and slashing was an extremely guilty pleasure. The gameplay is fluid and just looks stunning on my 60' LED TV. Multiplayer is fun as well and adds replayability to the game. I hope there is a sequel that explorers other ancient civilizations but I am happy in the Roman times, and would gladly go back to this universe! Ryse: Son of Rome is an outstanding effort into the Xbox One Next Gen experience and I highly recommend checking this one out!
