RYSE: SON OF ROME

With its stunning visuals yet suspect gameplay, Ryse is set to rise or fall. Originally intended to be a Kinect only game, they went back into development for the launch of Xbox one to bring a glorious visual masterpiece. While having a tough outing at E3 with its less then impressive build showing less then impressive graphics and a poor quicktime combat strategy, Ryse was labeled as a game to steer far away from.

Fast forward just a couple months to GamesCom and Ryse starts gaining notice and gets gamers buzzing. Ryse not only showed off better combat, it took home GamesCom award for best graphics. Over the last few months Ryse has gained a lot of momentum and reviews are still raving about the games impressive visuals. Some however have said the combat is boring and losses interest after awhile, but others praise it for its gore and impressive fighting animation.

I think Ryse who is now considered graphics king for next gen (according to IGN, Eurogamer and now gamespot via live stream video), Will do well. My gut says a 7 but my heart says 8.

I am going to say 8, what does everyone else think?

(Sorry I forgot the poll in the other.)

Repoasting this from the other thread.

Given how its apparently ~3-4 hours long and "about as much fun as dialing phone numbers", I'm not expecting the MC score to pan out very well.

Seems legit.

Oh hell yeah.

Dead Rising 3 already beating Killzone SF in critical reception, regardless of how the games that aren't rated yet do MS has already surpassed Sony's retail launch exclusives.

I'd wager it gets a 7. I could see it falling to a 6 or rising to an 8 potentially so neither would surprise me. No matter what it scores, it's already a day one pick up for me

#6 Posted by lostrib (34522 posts) -

well it's crytek, so i'd imagine it'd be about a 7

#7 Posted by Trail_Mix (2021 posts) -

I give it a 6, as the game still looks painfully monotonous.

#8 Posted by lawlessx (46558 posts) -

well if it gets an 8 cows will scream how bias gamespot is

#9 Posted by padaporra (3393 posts) -

I want gifs!

#10 Posted by Newhopes (4510 posts) -

Can't see it getting more than a 6.

lol ofcourse wouldn't you? Forget cows for a sec, if BF4 can only score an 8 and Ryse get the same score then you gota raise an eyebrow cow or lem.

I didn't get a chance to play. But saw a guy play it at best buy and it looks unreal. The graphics are so good words can't describe how good it is. I wish I had time to play but some 12 year old punk was on it.

Going AA for Ryse is like going AAAA for other games! LOL

Yes. How about, COD and BF4 get 8, but Arkham Origins a 6 because its more of the same?

#15 Posted by MrXboxOne (742 posts) -

Ryse is coming

How about people stop creating hype threads just so that they can be padded to make all One games look like flops. This is getting crazy around here and this is even getting too low of standards for system wars. Can we get some mods to lock these fake hype threads?

Deal with it. A game flopped here. If a game doesn't have a thread it doesn't flop. Stop trying to create them now to make yourselves feel better. System wars really has lost its fun. No creativity with all these crap accounts anymore.

Playing it safe with a 6, though i really havn't seen anything on this game so i'm basing my hype on what people have been saying about it here.

#18 Posted by s0ldier69 (2079 posts) -

game has been heralded as a flop since it was shown at e3. Cows went on and on about the qte. IF and its a big IF, it get 7 or above then cows are majorly owned. If has not been hyped so it cant flop but it can certainly be ownage if it scores well.

These hype threads are useless. Cows will just stampede in and make multiple alts to raise the score too high. They have plenty of free time since they have nothing to play. Should have no poll but tally responses from users posts with some arbitrary post limit.

LOL its fun. You don't think Xbox One fans didn't do the same? It doesn't matter because the reception of launch games are already better then the PS4. Let cows hype it up. We have already won.

Yeah. Someone needs to step in and lock these threads. Also start a legit hype thread protocol. Only created by mods and your username should be attached to the score you give.

I really don't know how much longer I will be able to stay on Gamespot. Used to be a fun time here in system wars.

It used to be fun. Now its just a bunch of butt hurt trolls/accounts trying to last minute create a flop. The cows under hyped KZ and it still came in lower. Was that poll flooded with a large amount of high 9 plus votes? Nope. This place is either really full of a bunch of childish PS fans or its just been overrun by trolls. Seems both to me.

Voted 8 AAe. Bring on One Week!

#24 Posted by RageQuit4Life (350 posts) -

It will get a 6. 3 hours for a game is ridiculous.

#25 Posted by HoVDaHuSTLa1 (1202 posts) -

Definitely a strong 6

Sorry to tell you, TC, but this topic will vanish after my X1 launch games megahype thread that I'll publish tomorrow. Was going to publish it today but too busy.

#28 Posted by Cheleman (7616 posts) -

Voted 9+

I BELIEVE in this game :)

#29 Edited by CloudStrife213 (426 posts) -

Hopefully the PS fanboys aren't hyping this game up for people even though people haven't been really hyping it up.

Even the biggest of fanboys should not be voting for a -1.

For starters, that is not even possible for shit's sake. Second - seriously....are you that much of an idiotic fanboy?

Good god there are some major douche bags in SW.
