Ryse: Son of Rome Review – Xbox One

Game Chronicles
17 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Ryse: Son of Rome is one of the “big three” launch titles for the Xbox One, and while early gameplay demos and videos had me feeling a bit skeptical, the final game has certainly turned out better than I had hoped, but is still sadly lacking in a few critical areas.  Developer Crytek has put the power of their latest CryEngine to work along with the power of the Xbox One hardware to deliver a game that is visually striking; a game where cutscenes and actual...

A Real Bruticas Maximus

GIN
3 February 2014
  • Excerpt: Ryse: Son of Rome on the Xbox One takes two steps forward with graphics, sound and music but more than one step back with the story. The gameplay is heavy with one on one combat along with some Roman era battles where you act as a centurion. The player's journey is told in a flashback but the narrative has lots of missed opportunities and internal historical contradictions, some of which could have made for a great female character in a more gripping story.

Ryse: Son of Rome Xbox One Review

Console Obsession
24 January 2014
  • Excerpt: In the case of Ryse: Son of Rome , it’s a meeting of old and new: old because the game takes us back to ancient Rome and new because it’s on brand new console hardware. With the game being a part of Microsoft’s Xbox One launch line-up, this is certainly one of the games that shouts to the world that next generation gaming consoles have arrived. Ryse: Son of Rome tells the story of Marius Titus, a Roman soldier who is seeking vengeance for the death of his family.

High-Def Digest
17 December 2013
  • Summary: Crytek leaves behind the shooting of 'Crysis' for its historic entry in the Xbox One launch lineup, opting for spears, shields, swords and Marius Titus, a Roman soldier hell-bent on revenge. This extremely violent brawler, which takes much inspiration from the 'Batman: Arkham Asylum' combat system, attempts to make the case for the Xbox One's technical prowess by bringing ancient Rome to the screen in all its war-torn beauty, which, when considering the game's Xbox...

  • Conclusion: Is this a shot-for-shot parody of Saving Private Ryan, only with British as Nazis?
  • Pros: Nailing a double execution and watching Marius flit back and forth, gutting two men simultaneously.
  • Cons: Killing the exact same guy five times in the same fight.

Game Over Online
9 December 2013
  • Excerpt: Do you know how to spot a game developed by Crytek? First, it’s a first-person shooter that looks absolutely amazing. Second, it features a protagonist with a military background who acquires superhuman abilities. Third, one of its themes is the danger of weaponizing genetic engineering. And finally, it has the word “cry” somewhere in its title. Far Cry, Crysis, Crysis 2, Crysis 3 – the pattern speaks for itself.
