If you are looking for aThis game does little to differentiate itself from the Mobile/Tablet version, but it is still a simple, yet fun game. If you are looking for a fun arcade top down shooter than you could do a lot worse. It would get a higher score from me if the Co-Op was better utilized, there could be some serious fun with this type of Halo game being a solid Co-Op game. Here's to hoping some DLC in the future fixes this. Is it the end of the year yet so we can play the new Halo on Xbox One?… Expand

Don't go intoOverall it's a tight game with slightly upgraded visuals and the depth of online/offline modes you expect from a Madden game. Don't go into this thinking the graphics are going to blow you away, once games like this are solely developed for the next-gen systems that is when the visuals will begin to become impressive.… Expand

If you are a CoD convert like myself it'll takeThis game isn't being played by almost anyone for the campaign, it is for the multiplayer. If you are a CoD convert like myself it'll take some getting used to, but once you do it is a whole new world. 64 man battles that can involve regular gun play, then add in the ability to have vehicles on land, sea and air nothing touches this. That and the graphics are mighty impressive for a game ported essentially from a last gen system to the new Xbox. Sure there are some issues with server stability and a few others you will find about on message boards, but overall I can't tell you the last time I've had this much fun playing an online shooter, great first attempt by DICE on the new Xbox and I can't wait for what's in store.… Expand

Ezio's story got stagnant towards the end of his run, but when they changed it up with III and involved the Revolutionary war it breathed new life into the series, especially for me. This one continues in that sense with it's focus on a subject that Johnny Depp made popular again pirates.
Top to bottom this game is awesome, graphically it can't get much better for a last-gen game being ported to a Xbox One console. To think of what this game could have been if it was developed from ground up on the new console generations is awesome and makes me very hopeful.
This size of this game, variety of things you can do and the story all make this something you should definitely try if you are a fan of the series. I was doubtful on how they could pull off the Abstergo continuation (no spoilers from the 3rd will be typed here) but am happy with how they are continuing this. Overall it's a great game and one that takes great leaps ahead and should excite any AC fan for what lies ahead on the new consoles.… Expand

Personally I was turned off from CoD after Modern Warfare 2 and thought I'd give this a go and I haven't been disappointed. The graphics aren't next-gen yet, obviously with this being built essentially first on last-gen tech, but they still are very solid. The potential for a game like this to be developed from ground up on a next-gen console is exciting and if they can change it up in some shape or fashion it will be awesome. They are going to have to to keep up with Titanfall come March, but CoD never truly goes away so I'm sure they have something up there sleeves.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.1Nov 25, 2013To give this game anything less than a 7 (or 70) is a crime. It's beautiful seriously. I just completed the campaign and then threw inTo give this game anything less than a 7 (or 70) is a crime. It's beautiful seriously. I just completed the campaign and then threw in Assassin's Creed Black Flag and was astonished at the difference between graphical quality. Yes, the moves in Ryse can get repetitive but what do you expect from a hack n' slash type game?
It's got a story that rivals a Hollywood Blockbuster, and seriously it is graphically stunning. I found myself slowing down and walking around astonished at how beautiful it was. That isn't the only reason to play the game though, aside from the same moves and the QTE executions I found the game play fun. I like hack n' slash games so I understood what I was getting and found it enjoyable. The only thing I wish they would have had more variety in was the executions. I'm okay with QTE's now and again, but they did get repetitive towards the middle and end. Repetitiveness aside, they still looked amazing when it would down time, speed it up, hack off an arm and then face smash them with your shield.
For anyone who is on here saying it looks great and amazing but then gives it a 1-4 because of the game play it's sad. Scores for a game like this don't deserve to be dragged down by those who don't understand what they are getting.
If you like hack n' slash games and want to play one with a solid story and see what the next gen Xbox is capable of right now pick this up.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.6Sep 5, 2013Avoid reviews that are under a 6, this game is easily one of the best PC ports to console I've every played. Fans of the Diablo series knowAvoid reviews that are under a 6, this game is easily one of the best PC ports to console I've every played. Fans of the Diablo series know what they are getting, a great RPG experience with a deep leveling system full of endless hours of quests and loot.
Is it as good as the PC, that's debatable depending on the PC you are using, but considering how smooth the game play feels on a controller you can't find a better experience. Apart from the the Borderlands series, this has the best co-op play out there. It's just too bad this game is coming at the end of the 360 and I can't play it on my Xbox One.… Expand
Average User Score: 7.2Jul 25, 2013If you give this game a 0 you really don't know what you are talking about or you are frustrated with how the servers are responding right nowIf you give this game a 0 you really don't know what you are talking about or you are frustrated with how the servers are responding right now and that's understandable. I myself was in a frustrated state last night when I finally got home at 5pm ET and wasn't able to sign on and play until 8pm ET. Still though, there isn't almost any game that deserves a 0, most have redeeming qualities.
Let's get to the game itself, it's a fun 3rd person shooter MMO on a console. Is it genre defining? By no means is it, but what it is is a pretty solid console MMO. I had a blast last night joining groups of 30-40 people fighting massive Hellbugs. I also had fun running around doing missions and having assistance come storming in when I thought there wasn't anyone around.
Bottom line is its fun and it's going to evolve over time and for that I'm excited. They fix the servers within the next few weeks and this game will be getting more and more praise. It's not a 10 and it sure isn't a 0 so don't let those reviews fool you. It's a good game and thanks for letting us finally experience a good console MMO Trion Worlds.… Expand

State of Decay ImageThink of this game as a hybrid. It combines elements of Left 4 Dead, Dead Island, Dead Rising, Red Dead Redemption (Undead Nightmare) and so on. Add on the element of building a base, keeping it going, expanding it, resource gathering and all the trappings of an RPG and you have one helluva Arcade game. For $20 I dare you to find me a better game, if so please let me know. Only reason I didn't give it a 10 same thing most are saying lack of co-op. If they add this on it could become one of the best Arcade games and or best zombies games of this (soon to be over) console generation.… Expand
