Ryse is a pretty good action combat game that can get a little repetitive at times, but that doesn’t mean that the game isn’t any good, because it’s a very entertaining title. The environments and visuals of the game are especially stunning, but more importantly it makes you feel that you are really right in the middle of the battle. That sense of realism seemed to be one of the biggest things about this game that stuck out.
There are a total of four difficulties you can play the story mode on, but you need to beat the game to play the hardest difficulty. The graphics are amazing, and still blow all the other next gen games out of the water, but only when it comes to graphics. The gameplay can leave your hands tired after bashing all the buttons over and over again. I’m not saying that the gameplay was bad, but it’s just not innovative enough to really stick out in that sense. There’s just a lot of blocking, breaking the enemy’s guard, and attacking that makes the game challenging and repetitive. The coolest part is the spacial rage attack mode that is very useful when attacking multiple enemies at once.
I have to say that multiplayer is pretty cool. The game through you in a Coliseum where you and another player fight waves of enemies. Overall Ryse is worth playing, and deserves to be considered one of the better Xbox One games even a year after it has been released. Get Ryse: Legendary Edition now from Amazon for only 29.99.
