Excellent

Excellent Game

Let's get this out of the way right now. Yes, it suffers from a bit of repetition that starts about half way through the game simply due to the combat, but everything else is stellar. The levels are different from act to act, the story is great, the combat is visceral and intense, the game is the best looking one I've seen so far and you really won't want to put it down before you beat it. It's like a cross between the movies King Arthur, Gladiator and 300... excellent.

I'm going to try and be brief here considering the space given. First off I LOVE anything that has to do with ancient Rome. Haha. OK, here we go. Ryse is a pretty fun game overall. The graphics are definitely up to speed with next gen consoles. The fighting is smooth and story is well put together and engaging. I like to get achievements so I played through the story 2 or 3 times. The multiplayer achievements are not worth getting so that is why I'm not giving it a higher rating. I'm going to give it an 8 because single player is awesome and i enjoyed it. The thing this game lacked was the multiplayer. I admire the effort to try something different than your average Joe multiplayer but its just pressing X and Y over and over again. I would definitely recommend renting this game for the single player and now that its down to $20 I might just buy it.
