    Ryse: Son of Rome


    About the Game

    Ryse: Son of Rome is a new game from Crytek, which takes a rather visceral look at some ancient mythology. It was originally planned as an Xbox 360 Kinect game, but Microsoft instead chose to hold it back for the Xbox One.

    Our Verdict

    Overall Ryse is a game that does a fantastic job showing of what the Xbox One can handle, while at the same time leaving you rather disappointed that the developer didn't pursue the concept just a little further. The single player feels too short, the combat isn’t complex enough, and the multiplayer woefully undersold. If you're a die hard fan of history the plot will likely throw you into a fitful convulsion at all its inaccuracy, but Ryse isn't really a game trying to be accurate. It's trying to be fun while at the same time capturing the spirit of an era long lost. In that it succeeds, and though the ride is short and underdeveloped, it highlight’s the platform’s potential.
