Ryse: Son of Roam

Ryse: SOR is a beautiful third person action game that allows you to fight hundreds of Barbarians to get the man who had your family killed. A Generic story that has been done many times. Only thing that makes it not completly dull is the little twist at the end. "No worries not giving it away." The voice acting is Serpurb in this game as well as the animation. Very good stuff. The combat is a bit repeditive with simple color coated push button game for combat finishers. Only thing that dosen't make combat a complete bore is the Burtality of the finishers. there so Satifing that you don't mind seeing the same ones over and over. There is a nice verity of levels to but near the end there is a arena level it it just felt forced in the game to me. Even tho is was enjoyable it threw off the pacing of the game. The detail in the levels are inpressive along with the charaters. Years down the road this game will still impress to new comers. You can upgrade you health and force meter. On easy tho I never used the force, which slows time down and make you swing like a mad man. The game was easy enough I never needed it. I didn't play the multiplayer for I wanted to get this out for another game before Christmas hit. I heard from friend it is fun with friends to play it. You unlock new armer and weapons as you level up in it. Ryse Son of Roam is made for people who like Roam and there type of belife. Something keep it from being great but it is worth renting or even buying at I think 25$. There be times it is so real your get pumpted up yourself, and the voice Kenict works well on it. The Brutality of the combat is so satisfying. I give Ryse a 7.5 out of 1O, Since I can't do 7.5 i'll round it off to an 8.

The only good thing about this game are the visuals. The combat gets extremely repetitive and the story is very lackluster. Good rent. Got bored very fast.
