RYSE: Son of Rome Discussion Thread - Page 2

I thought it looked awesome. I will definitely keep an eye on it. I do agree they should tone down the QTEs just a tad. If they don't and the game ends up having a limited amount of animations for the QTEs, it could be painful to play haha.

Loose the QTE and the ingame CS were you don't have control and the game looks like it will actually be fun.

Cool game so far. Combat is a bit repetetive but I am loving the atmosphere and graphics are good.

It would be cool if we could adjust HUD sizes and FOV in the game.

Here is a 21:9 video.

I finished the game last night and here is how I feel.

Story:
You play as an up and rising Roman Soldier whose family gets killed and seek for revenge. You will try to figure out the murderers as well as try to save Rome.

Gameplay: Ryse is a 3rd person hack and slash game which is best played with a gamepad if you ask me. Combat is not hard, however gets repetetive after a while. There are few enemy types and they can all be dealt with easily. Boss fights were kinda boring as well, because all you do is rather evade or block than counter attack for every single boss (which are luckily very few) .The way where the gameplay really shines is the exacutions. When the enemy is about to die there is a red skull on him, so what you have to do is push the assigned button to enter the exacution stance. From there depending on the enemy or where he is located, you get a slow motion effect of killing him visciously. If this feature was not added, the gameplay would be less interesting for sure. The game also has a terrible spear fighting at times which is just unoriginal and boring. Also there are few locations where you can ask for aid from your fellow warriors which come in handy at times.

Graphics: Definitely the best part of the game is the graphics department. Game was a joy to watch. Everything was modeled very well such as locations, far away structures, your enemies, etc... I played the game with a 21:9 ratio monitor and it felt like a movie at times. Anyone with a 4K monitor is also in a treat with this game. Definitely one of the best visual games in this era for PC.

Audio: Voice acting, soundtrack and ingame sounds were done pretty good. Not as great as the graphics department but it was enjoyable to watch the cutscenes. (though they had a lower resolution)

Length: 5 hours for Singleplayer with a Hard difficulty. Could take even less for others.

Multiplayer: I played few minutes of multiplayer and to be fair it was not bad at all. The game placed me at the Colleseum with another player and we hade to hold off waves of enemies and defeat them. It was surely fun however I doubt it is the multiplayer game anyone is looking for. Matter of fact I doubt anyone would invest much time on the multiplayer portion of the game.

Replay Value: None for the singleplayer. Once you play it, I doubt you will ever visit the game unless you have a sudden urge of playing a game where you are a Roman Centurion. Multiplayer is not bad at all but I also doubt much time will be spent there.

Verdict: If you can find the game for 10$ or lower and want to have some old Roman action with pretty graphics, this game will keep you occupied for a short while. It is not a bad game at all, but I wish developers would have spent more time on the story and gameplay to take it to a better level. 3 stars. Avoid the game if it is more than 10$.

I've always wondered if this game was worth while. After reading your review, I may consider it if it drops below $10 (as you suggest) on Steam. Thanks for the info! thumb.gif +1
