Ryse Son of Rome Game Xbox One Product Description

Ryse: Son of Rome tells the story of the young Roman soldier, Marius Titus, who witnesses the murder of his family at the hands of barbarian bandits. Seeking revenge, he travels with the Roman army to Britannia where he proves himself a soldier of phenomenal skill and quickly rises through the ranks. As Marius leads the army against the barbarian horde, his quest unravels and he discovers that he must return to Rome to find his vengeance.

With the power of Xbox One, Ryse: Son of Rome presents conflict in the Roman Empire like you’ve never seen it before, from the northern reaches of Britannia to the Coliseum and the very heart of Rome.

Reviews of Ryse Son of Rome Game Xbox One

  • rated this product 5.0 out of 5 stars
ryse is the zeus of games, its my favorite game out of the ps4 and xbox one launch and that's partly because i love classics but also because its a breath of fresh air compared to the other games of which you can get on any other console. The combat is great and you have to actually time and predict it well, so fans of the arkham games will love this and perfecting it is a reward in its self, multiplayer is pretty good but this game is worth it on single player alone i just wish it was longer and that single player dlc was coming out for it.

This is the most beautiful game I've ever seen. It is the game you chuck in to show off your shiny (and matt) new xbox one to your mates. The gameplay is fun and the executions are brutal! Although fairly simplistic and linear I have really enjoyed this game and will keep going back to it. Die barbarian scum!

When you think of ancient Rome images like the testudo formation, barbarian hordes, shiny swords, shield and pilum, fuzzy helmets, the Colosseum, galleons, backcountry forts and dirty internal politics come to mind. Thankfully Ryse: Son of Rome has them all. Unfortunately, it squeezes them into only 6 hours of gameplay which, as it turns out is about all it needs. There's something less and less satisfying about performing the same few colour button combinations to finish off an enemy. Basically what it boils down to is a battle sequence much like the one in the Batman Arkham series (though Batman's is done better), followed by a 'finish him' Mortal Kombat style execution. Only the enemy dies either way, and if you press the right button at the right time you get more points. These points are used to increase your life bar, focus meter or allow you to carry more pila etc. Useful but not exciting upgrade. That all being said, I had a LOT of fun playing as a Roman legionary come Centurion with a dash of gladiator thrown into the mix. Accompanying that the graphics are outstanding, with some exemplary lighting and textures; there is sufficient gore to keep even Dexter happy and when it all boils down to it, the plot explored some pretty exciting avenues. Love Romans, senseless destruction and admiring beautiful vistas across the Roman empire? Give this a shot.
