Some of the reviews I have read lead me to belive that Ryse was just a hack and slash game. After putting some time in the game I found that you can absolutely button mash if you just want to get through the combat. That's not too sophisticated. HOWEVER, if you take the time to learn the combat mechanics, it has depth to it. And the reward system alows you to choose how your character will look, level up and carry out attacks. Not to mention this game is very stylistic and beautifully rendered.

Don't rent this game. Really campy gameplay, terrible story. graphics are the only good thing. It is has a joke of leveling up system, that only has 4 levels. Most of the upgrades that you get don't even make sense. Oh and there is in game gold that you can buy with real money. I thought that was only on Apple IOS games but I guess Microsoft wants to cash in. Worst game I've played on the Xbox one.
