Ryse: son of next gen,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Ryse: Son of Rome (Xbox One) (Game)
You get exactly what you expect with this game - a hack 'n' slash 6 hour journey through beautiful next gen landscapes with little to no change in gameplay.
Ideally this deserves a 3.5 star rating, with 3 seeming harsh and 4 being too generous. Ryse demonstrates exactly what this new console can do with regard to graphics, (facial expressions are incredibly realistic for example) and you will enjoy your first play through.
Replayability is somewhat lacking, and I must say I am tempted to sell this game soon. However, having jumped ship from the PS4 (are there any games on that console?!) I was delighted to actually pick up a controller and play a single player campaign for the first time in months.
To conclude, i'd say give this game a shot as you're tempted by it, otherwise you wouldn't be reading the reviews!
