Ryse: 1 QTE event that you must be successful at to complete the game
Tomb Raider: dozens of QTE events that you must be successful at to complete the game
Critics/Fanboys: Ryse is a QTE-fest, Tomb Raider is a series reboot with much advanced gameplay mechanics compared with previous installments

Ryse: at 900p/30fps on X1 has the best graphics of any console game to date
Tomb Raider: at 1080p/60fps on PS4 is an incremental improvement over PS3/X360 and is in no way a next gen experience
Critics/Fanboys: Tomb Raider proves that PS4 is more powerful than X1

Ryse: variety of worlds with stunning environmental graphics, a noticeable lack of variety in enemies
Tomb Raider: one world with monotonous environmental graphics, a noticeable lack of variety in enemies
Critics/Fanboys: Ryse is all the same stuff over and over, Tomb Raider's setting adds to the compelling grit of the new Lara and more adult-oriented story

Ryse: multiplayer is a simple but addictive mode
Tomb Raider: multiplayer is simple and a snoozefest
Critics/Fanboys: Ryse's multiplayer feels like a poorly conceived last minute addition, Tomb Raider's multiplayer is a move in the right direction and doesn't hold back the single player experience


I've played through both games. Tomb Raider was traded in fairly quickly while I could still get good value for it. Ryse has earned a permanent spot in my collection. The hypocrisy of how people flaunt Tomb Raider while bashing Ryse is pathetic and serves to me as Exhibit A for why gaming critics and fanboys have become the bane of this industry.

I liked both a lot

Ryse is called a QTE feat do to its awful E3 presentation.

Tomb Raider's SP is much longer, more variety(different weapons) and has a better story which are valid reasons that people may like it more than Ryse

Just how short is Ryse? Because Tomb Raider's campaign took me about 6 hours to finish. Getting the collectibles added an additional hour or two post game.

Ryse got really good by the end but could have used another 6 months. Tomb raider was superb. Ryse did get unfairly panned I feel, but tombraider's praise is definitely deserved.

PS4 has proven it's amazing ability to run last gen games better lol. We'll need something more than a quick cash in port to make us jealous.

If halo 5 is better on ps4 then I'll pick one up ;-)

why would you do a speed run with a guide on your very first play through?

that's the only way you could beat it that fast

The topic creator's post seems rife with hypocrisy. Or maybe just poor reasoning.

If Ryse was a Sony exclusive, all we'd be hearing about is what a great game it is regardless of the game's specs.
