It actually really good if you play on Centurion. More enemies, tougher enemies, and alot more use of blocking, parrying, rolling, and swordplay. In recent memory I cant recall a game I felt more strongly about the review being wrong than this one.

Ryse 2 would be interesting, that setting is perfect for any sort of brutal action game and Ryse itself seems like the kind of game that could be good if they focused more on making a fun game than a cinematic marvel (remember when Crytek used to be able to do both, ahh the good old days).

There could be hope for Ryse: Son of Knack yet!

#11 Posted by TREAL_Since (11946 posts) -

If they put him on Ryse 2, then there's real hope for that franchise. Pappy had some great ideas for God of War Ascension, so I hope he works on Ryse 2.

The man who ruined God of War and pretty much only did visuals well, he'll fit right in.

#13 Edited by chikenfriedrice (11097 posts) -

I want Ryse 2 but I don't want the dude that ruined GoW to be involved.

#14 Edited by Sushiglutton (5545 posts) -

Yeah, Ryse 2 seems like the logical answer.

Not sure how the guy failing to make a good GOW game getting fired and seeking refugee at one of the worst third person melee developers in the industry is counted as a loss for the cows?

Oh for f*ck sake come on. He doesn't owe you. He is a human being, he has a life.

He fucked up God of War by releasing the abomination called Ascension.

You guys can keep him.

#20 Posted by freedomfreak (43760 posts) -

Ascension was not good.

#21 Posted by Kiro0 (1176 posts) -

Yeah Crytek can have him.

Let him be, he is upset over the fact that Sony is whooping Microsoft's ass

God of War is a series with mediocre gameplay

Post Crysis Warhead Crytek games have mediocre gameplay

Seems like a perfect fit.

#24 Posted by PSP107 (12387 posts) -

I agree that GOW Ascension was a letdown but wasn't he part of the previous GOW games?

#25 Posted by PannicAtack (21040 posts) -

I don't think he can be blamed for "ruining" God of War. The franchise had already hit a dead end. All he did was stagnate.

Except when you see the atrocity Ryse is gameplay wise, then mediocre starts to seem much better

Jelly of what? I don't have any issues with trying to sleep. So I've never really needed God of War's profound ability to cure insomnia.

I would say truly the might have fallen, but then I remember Crytek games always had their warning signs. Trigun, the Aliens, Ascension.

I respect Crytek for doing something different and not just FPS. Bet they are looking to a hack n slash vet to improve Ryse

#33 Edited by zeeshanhaider (2907 posts) -

Ryse 2 with fixed camera incoming.....

#34 Posted by darkspineslayer (20470 posts) -

@Desmonic: the combat was improved? Which game did you play?

The idea of the meter was alright. But in practice it just stymied the combat, which was otherwise nearly the same. Frustration incarnate.

#38 Posted by murray69murray (127 posts) -

Crytek has a strange love for occult in their games, the mutants in Far Cry, the aliens in the Crysis series, and I haven't played Ryse yet, but I'm sure it has something.

The sequel like have decent combat now

Fingers crossed trying to copy GOW:A will be the final nail in the coffin for Ryse, the hot new transmedia IP no one asked for.

This is good. He's not the best out there but he'll be a valuable asset to crytek. He should be the one who push the story quality of crytek games, far

Because when I think "God of War," I think "story quality." Right. Totally.

Yup, the emotional heart touching story about killing random monster # 453674475777 because his @ss is tattooed which is unforgivable.
