RYSE Review

I rented this game with high expectations and I was sorely disappointed. I beat the campaign in roughly 8 hours. The Campaign was entertaining it kept me interested, but there were things I didn't like as well. There are about 5 models of barbarians that you fight the whole game and they always look the same. At points I was fighting 4 of the same model barbarian, how dumb. The fighting was lackluster as well. You did the same combo executions every time. The game play got really predictable after about half hour into the game. I am really glad that I rented this title and didn't waste $60 on it.

This is a great title to rent. Awesome graphics, great sound, Interesting story line, Fun, and easy to master game controls. I played on hard my first time and it wasn't too difficult. Only problem is I beat it on hard in 8 hours and played again on difficult. After that I am done with it wouldn't recommend buying this game.

Very repetitive. Very boring.

I played this game for 30 minutes before a realized that it is just the same a b x y button combinations over, and over, and over again. I decided to at least try to beat the game before I returned it but simply could not. The game lacked an enticing story and character progression is very weak. I thought multiplayer might be more fun but sadly it's just two of you in an arena button mashing waves of barbarians. Nothing changes...ever. Very disappointing. The graphics are good but not as good as what everyone seemed to hype them up to be. Huge letdown overall, that is why this game gets a one out of ten.
