So I played Ryse campaign and although it looks beautiful and I love the slash and hack style of the game, The down fall is once you play through the story there is almost no replay value. You unlock almost all the upgrades halfway through the game. Plus the story is very short about 4hrs long so unless you play online this game is not worth $60 price tag but definitely worth a rent.

I got this game in the mail really quick. I was looking forward to the game, was always a fan of roman history and mythology. The game as a good story and the graphics are great. But the combat is much of the same after a few hours you pretty much just keep hack&slashing your way through the game. I played it on Hard mode straight out of the gate. I beat it in a single day so it's a pretty short game. I didn't even try the multiplayer so I can't rate that. All and all I recommend renting it, before you decide to buy it. Its got a good story.
The game has the best graphics that I have ever seen. The color and textures provide a realistic representation of that culture. The story delivers one of the greatest story in video games. The playability is good. The fighting style can be compared to assassins creed's series, but after a few hours it becomes repetitive.
This is a great game. I highly recommend it. It brings a great start to the Xbox One.
