    Unjustified and indelicate rating.

    I believe that this game is inappropriately rated due to a biased perspective on launch title games. With an obvious overuse of facial graphic design and an overplayed, generic storyline it would be understandable that s... Read Full Review

    It's a beautiful letdown.

    Ryse: Son of Rome is great for showing off the power of the Xbox One, with beautiful, almost realistic looking graphics. Unfortunately, that's about all it's good for. I was looking forward to trying this game out (even... Read Full Review

    MUCH Better Than Gamespot Suggests

    Ok.... I just finished Ryse. I haven't the slightest idea of where that review score came from. Anybody that likes action brawlers, like God of War, will like this game. Not only is it gorgeous and controls flawlessly, ... Read Full Review

    Not a 4

    I enjoyed this game. Yes the combat is repetitive, but in this type of game that is to be expected. The gory finishers never got old for me. Game has gorgeous graphics and a interesting story. The co-op gladiator mode is... Read Full Review

    Amazing graphics, entertaining

    This game has an entertaining storyline, great graphics, definitely worth checking out. Gameplay is somewhat repetitive, but does not warrant a score of 4/10!!! It is irresponsible from Gamespot to allow reviews like th... Read Full Review

    Both more and less than what you may have heard

    Ryse is a very polished game that I enjoyed. It's origin as a Kinect game shows through as the gameplay and difficulty appear to be tuned for the casual crowd. Gamers who have thrived on the difficulty of Demon/Dark Soul... Read Full Review
