Ryse Son of Rome Xbox Review:
It is a Ryse Son of Rome game. It is playing game updates. There in this game you will feel real game play experience.
Ryse: Son of Rome is an excellent showcase for the Xbox One hardware. The visually stunning, fast paced action title delivers intense combat, an intriguing story and a pleasantly surprisingly slice of cooperative multiplayer to introduce this new generation of gaming. It’s far from flawless but it’s undoubtedly accomplished, and despite heavy repetition through a relatively short tale, it’s an adventure well worth experiencing.
In fact, repetition is a concern throughout the adventure. You’re kept to a strict critical path that practically eliminates exploration, and whilst this does wonders for maintaining the fast pace it’s disappointing there aren’t more options for tactics when approaching a group of enemies. You’re either up close in the fray with shield and gladius, in turtle shell formation with a group of your men, throwing spears at medium range, or behind a stationary ballista – and these combat scenarios play out over and over again. Occasionally you get to choose where your men setup for defending an area, and through voice commands – which work brilliantly – you can call for archer support, but there’s no getting around the lack of variety.
Ryse: Son of Rome feels a lot like a Call of Duty title in Roman clothing. It’s bloodthirsty combat and fast pace gets the adrenaline pumping and the set pieces are bombastic and spectacular. Storming the British coast feels and looks like the D-Day landing but in ancient times, and achieving this level of intensity and maintaining it is an impressive feat. The narrative is well put together and expertly delivered and although it’s repetitive the brevity of the experience helps to prevent it feeling like a slog. Rome wasn’t built in a day but you’ll easily complete Ryse inside of one – but you’ll also enjoy the adventure whilst it lasts.
