RYSE - Son of Rome

If you like any of the AC or God of War games you will love this one.

Beware this game is pretty brutal and has some very graphic executions of some unsightly nature but for the adult in me that loves the Roman mythology this game is too good to be true.

The multi player is loads of fun too! Who doesn't want to be a Gladiator in the coliseum - well not in real life of course...

I recommend renting and if you like it as much as I do you will buy it.

I was very excited about this game. I have always loved the sword and shield style of combat. The visuals of this game were were awesome, limbs flying of and such. But for a Next Gen title the game play was not up to par. The same hit "X" or hit "Y" to execute was very repetitive and got boring quick, thus I gave Ryse 5/10.

I LOVE this game! It is THE most beautiful console game out there right now. I love being immersed in Roman History everything looks beautiful. EXCEPT I kept fighting the same looking barbarians through the whole game which is not very realistic AND whether I was in Rome or York, they were all the same Barbarians, they all looked the same there was only about 5 different kinds. The single player campaign is a little short but excellent and beautiful, although a bit repetitive. I will definitely play through it again and again.

I think the multiplayer coop is great also and there is a good selection of maps and challenges with Add-ons to add more.

It would be nice if the Campaign was also co-op playing as Marius's friend. Maybe for Ryse 2 where Marius returns as Damocles. ;-)

If you want to see how EVERY Nextgen game SHOULD look, this game is for you! It raises the bar for next gen graphics and realism just like Gears of War did for the 360.

Try it, you just might like it!
PS This game should be for adults only, which was EXCELLENT!!! Well done, MS!
