Exclusive(s) battle of the trailers: Ryse vs Shadow of the Beast

#1HeathenutopiaPosted 11/4/2013 11:59:28 AM
So, which trailer is more epic? These two characters were seriously mind-humped in their youth and became badasses. Ryse is coming out soon and Shadow of the Beast has no release date, but this is just a fun debate regarding the trailers and which one makes you want the game more...regardless of the system it is on. (I know...hard to do) Let's just have some civil fun. Tired of all the 720p crap.

So, let's begin:

Ryse: Son of Rome story:

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.

(If there is a better trailer, please provide it)

Shadow of the Beast (Reboot from Amiga 1989) story:

The first game’s story is about a man named Aarbron who was kidnapped as a child and corrupted through magic into a monstrous warrior-servant for the evil beast lord Maletoth. The creature’s memory of his human life returns when he watches a man being executed, whom he later recognizes as his father. This prompts Aarbron to seek revenge on Maletoth.

I prefer the real video game over the interactive movie called Ryse.

That shadow of the beast trailer actually looked pretty good. Then I looked up gameplay to find out its a 2d sidescroller. LOL

That Ryse trailer actually looked pretty good. Then I looked up gameplay to find out it has less gameplay then Beyond Two Souls and Heavy Rain. LOL

Uncharted is like Gears of War and neither are interactive movies. Interactive movies are crap like Heavy Rain, Beyond Two Souls, Asuras Wrath and Ryse.

It's so scripted and mostly easy that it should be
