Poor lems, GI say the game sucks.

What you guys gonna do now that you don't have a single launch game of the quality of Killzone? How much longer till Titanfall come to save the Xbone....

It’s so basic and predictable, I began testing to see if I could get past most combat situations with one hand. With my left hand completely off the controller, I was able to slice and dice through tons of enemies simply by inputting the same sequence ad nauseum. On a couple of occasions, the game would shift to sequences that involved me defending an area with crossbow stations or ordering my men to block arrows with their shields. These were somehow even less exciting than the tedious swordplay.

Oh damn. What a disappointment. Pretty much everyone was preparing the next boundary of hack and slash to be broken by Crytek.

I deduce that MS wasnt ready to launch that's why forza 5 is like GT:HD, ryse was an actual 360 kinect game, D3 runs at 12F FPS and they're 95% 720P games.

What a shit console

Well it was originally an on rails kinect 360 game. What did you expect, the X1s answer to sonys God of War and nintendos bayonetta 2?

This looked like a pile of crap the moment the gameplay kicked in during e3. Plus it's crytek, they haven't made a good game in forever.

These are REAL problems with the console just like PS3 had problems. But in your book, MS can't do any wrong

That's bad, awesome setting and even good graphics going to waste !

Slowly but surely that good Xbone launch games list is going to shittereens and that was probably the only ownage the Lemmings could enjoy next generation .

Even this controller is too complicated for the gameplay of Ryse.

Is really scary and apply to any console maker where ever you win a generation or not,Nintendo,sony and now MS,which i dare should have been taking advantage of the moderate success of the 360.

I really don't see why anyone still wants this console. The only reason I can think of is, their gamerscore is their life and they don't want to lose it.

I was here during that entire fiasco. It doesn't get much worse than that. I don't think this will be so bad that it will actually kill the dev studio.

@heretrix: I was going off of how much hype the Lems have put into this game. Really have a feeling that Ryse is going to be a massive flop. I didn't know the studio died after Lair flopped though.

Never said that dummy. There are some problems with both systems. In your opinion the PS4 can do no wrong. lol!! It's idiots like you who just bash everything XB1 without even playing or using the console. lol!! There are problems with the PS4 as well. With overheating and late patches to unlock features that should be readily available out of the box. So give it a rest little boy.

This GI guy was playing the demo of the game, not the final retail version. I'd like to read a view more previews on the game. Gamers are bashing Knack the same way. lol!!

And what does that have to do with the writer not liking Ryse? Why would he criticize Ryse if his job was to sell more games?

Hopefully there will be a good game for The One at launch otherwise it will be a long winter.

GameInformer is a good reviewing mag as well so its not like they don't know what a good game is.

PS4 has done no wrong, Xbox fails EVERYDAY.

Overheating? False. Late patches to unlock features? Oh you mean how you want a patch to make Xbone run CoD at 1080p? LMAO.

Forza 5 looks good. So XB1 has got at least 1 good game at launch...if you like racing.

If not, then, I don't know what to tell you.

The footage for Ryse is great best looking game that will be out this year. It won't make a hill of beans for me if the game is broken and boring. I don't like racers so Forza is out, KI is a fighter that will have shallow replay value like all fighters, BF4 is the only game I will likely be spending a lot of time with if Ryse doesn't play well.

Get a PS4. At least you can play Battlefield in 900p and with a better frame rate. Buying a Bone for this shovelware game is plain stupid. Forza I could understand.

KI, DR3, Forza and Ryse look good to me. I have no interest in console* shooters.
