Too bad the game doesn't let you explore anything, just hack-and-slash through the once Kinect-only events.

Trailer makes me want to play AC: BROTHERHOOD again.  Now there's a game where you can actually explore Rome, albeit in a different age.

Sorry Crytek, not feeling RYSE.  Looks nice, but with friends having played it (Gamescom) and said "it's boring," and the fact you can't explore...  *meh*

It's very impressive considering the Cryengine doesn't use baked lighting like Unreal does. From the gameplay I've seen though it looks like this will be a very linear game without any room given for exploration, it looks damn near railroaded.

@battlefront1943 THE LAST OF US. Beautiful, but nothing to explore. So really… besides someone's opinion of boring, which is what I thought TLOU sometimes was, got to do with a game being meh?

Since when do you "explore" in slasher games? God of war was fun and wasnt very immersive.

@mrmcbamf Yes because the entertainment industry really thrives from keeping things exactly the same.
