    If you are in the mood to spend a weekend enjoying some graphic ultra-violence with your brain turned off, then Ryse: Son of Rome should make a nice addition to your library, especially if you can find it on a Steam sale.

    Brutal combat and simple mechanics are the “bane and the boon” of this Action/ Hack 'n' Slash game. Impressive in the beginning, grows weary, though, after some playtime, following Marius Titus’ journey for retribution. The stunning depiction of some territories of the ancient Roman Empire make it an eye candy and the extremely interesting multiplayer co-op feature adds extra play hours, making it a worthy buy.

    The PC version of the Crytek’s game is coherent with its roots and that’s at the same time a good and a bad thing.

    While Ryse's production values are amazing, its gameplay is painfully superficial.

    Ryse is a decent game, given its length, but it's one that is certainly more fun to look at than it is to play.

    A bad port and a gameplay that wasn't that great even on Xbox One.

    It treats players like drooling idiots that expect games to play themselves. [13/2014, p.62]

    Love this game, something different from usual FPS and 3rd person game. Most games have same/similar story and can be boring. People do sayLove this game, something different from usual FPS and 3rd person game. Most games have same/similar story and can be boring. People do say that Ryse is repetitive but are not all the other games repetitive? E.G shooting enemies in different maps. People are annoyed because of short campaign but like all of the crytek games have short campaigns. Expand

    Great graphics. Good plot. Good characters. Great animations. Great combat but it gets a bit repetitive but it is so great looking that youGreat graphics. Good plot. Good characters. Great animations. Great combat but it gets a bit repetitive but it is so great looking that you would still look at those animations a thousand times. For a sequel we would need more variation in combat without ruining the great feedback and power of each blow and more enemies 3d models. Expand

    Visuals can't hide messy story.
    You start the campaign and this game feels real, visually beautiful, sound is amazing, gameplay with orders and fighting feels really awesome, finishing moves are fresh and entertaining with more than one enemy at a time, and the story is longer than expected and fun throughout.
    But if all the presentation and gameplay feels better than any previous attempt at a game like this, the story has been done a million times, especially in Roman times which makes the game feel more generic than ever, especially for a game that is coming out with the console... just wanna show it's capabilities and done.
    Multiplayer actually has lots of depth but too much grind and repetition for my tastes.
    In a discount price, definitely a buy.

Realmente, un port nefasto. Expand
