Yeah, it's repetitive but the graphics are stunning. I loved the cut scenes, and the last level.. The hallway sequence, was cool as heck :) Its good for a bit of fun but i was expecting the multiplayer arenas to be randomly generated, that was a bit disappointing.
Honestly. I loved every second of it. The game-play was pretty awesome. Chaining together combo's was extremely satisfying and each hit felt real. So much power per swing. I've not enjoyed a video game like that (from an action perspective that is) since Gears 1. Theirs a similar energy that the two share.
Its quite short. But the story also came out of nowhere. Pretty great game in my opinion a 9/10.

I liked it, it was a good action game. I think some expect too much from the genre now a days, hence Ryse's anti fans. I mean they are just action movies in game form. You don't expect Academy awards for Expendables or the new Schwarzenegger flick do you? For what it was I loved it. Good combat, beautiful locations, a nice revenge plot line, and some great voice acting. All the things one needs for a good action game. I really liked it. Gone through twice and plan on doing it again soon.
I had fun with it. The most positive thing about Ryse to me is its enormous potential, a sequel could be amazing! Also try playing through the game on legendary difficulty if you haven't already makes the entire game play more challenging and rewarding!
