We'll see upon release, but friends of mine who played it at Gamescom said "it was boring."  More interested in the game than the console.  Not buying an XBOX ONE...  even if I do like ancient Rome.  Rather play SHADOW OF ROME again.

I haven't heard the phrase "legendary execution" from a game in a long time - how verbose.

Wait - minotaurs? Are they dudes with bull-masks and other get-up or the mythical minotaurs?

Visually, this is an impressive game. Not that I expected it, but it's not a very realistic game is it? I mean, perhaps more realistic than say, God of War, but still. That doesn't matter to me much though. Oh, and they used Hans Zimmer and Lorne Balfe on Crysis 2, but this is probably the better game to do that with since this is supposed to be more cutscene/story oriented, and heck, Gladiator. Is anyone else hoping that there's more than just combat? I mean, it looks pretty cool, but... I just kind of feel bad if all this is is killing. A lot of games are that, but there needs to be more. It'll probably be fine when I play it one way or the other, but when they tout it so much, it seems off.

Its pretty but it looks super easy mode which gets boring fast. Automatically knowing where to block and turning around instantly? Plus it looks like the slow-mo is there for a quick-time event which in my opinion kinda suck.

Looks really violent. This video changed my opinion of the game from meh to damn, maybe X1 will be alright.

@ronvnit2006 That was a good game, but I never beat it... Yes though, that was the last game that I could think of in which this is somewhat similar to.
