Ryse is awful... but I do sure hope games look like this in the future

Just beat Ryse and I must say, this is one of the worst action games I've played in a long time. Granted, I hate God of War and think its already too shallow for my tastes so you can imagine that Ryse really just sucks total ass for me. Its got like 4 attacks and you have them ever since the beginning and while you don't mindlessly spam those buttons, its basically as deep as when you start off in DMC4 with only swings, grabs and a basic combo. Actually, its about 300% more shallow since Dante actually begins with like 3x more moves than this guy even during the tutorial... As a fan of real action games like Viewtiful Joe, Bayonetta, DMC and Ninja Gaiden, Ryse would be a complete joke.

Strangely, the multiplayer was quite fun for a bit. Maybe this was in contrast to how bad the campaign was and completely pointless the story was.\


But I would be lying if I didn't say I was impressed by how the game looks. Its depiction of rome was quite beautiful it was quite impressive how the armor and environments looked. By far the best out of any of the launch games so far. I certainly don't want to see a sequel to Ryse but I do hope as the system becomes optimized and so on, developers will start making games look like ryse but with good gameplay. If DMC5 looks better than ryse (and it should right? Since its launching later) then I am super hyped.

Btw, this game was on my rental list. Finished it in 3 days and sending it back.

lol casuals... This is why there are people still excited about Ryse. Where you think this QTE garbage is inspired from? God of War isn't for hardcore action fans like me. Its for people who want to feel badass by spamming buttons and have no concept of timing.

Ryse is my favorite show this year.

You belong on the blizz D3 forums, it was built for people like you. Like how some barns are built specifically to contain filthy animals.

What a snob. Its video games dude not extra credits for a college degree. Who do you think you are trying to tell people to what degree they should fantasize in a video game? Good for you that you like to feel challenged at every turn and pushed to your limits but some people like me just want to have fun and feel like a titan and crush their enemies without frustration. That's why there are difficulty settings Hoss.

Historically speaking, games will look leaps and bounds better than Ryse, a launch title.

I didn't say it was easy. I said it was shallow. There is a difference.
