So I just rented Ryse from Gamefly

My goodnesss this is a gorgeous looking game! The combat is pretty simplistic, it reminds me of the combat style in Assasssins Creed 3 and 4 with the stringing together of combos. Storywise I am intrigued, I have been playing for about 4 hours and I can see on the timeline that I'm almost halfway done with the game so I can see that this is probably an 8ish hour game.

Is it a buy? I'm not too sure as I don't get into multiplayer very often anymore and from what I hear that is where this games longevity comes into place. I will say this though, if you own an Xbox One and haven't played this game then you need to figure out a way to rent it. For me personally it isn't worth $60 because of the multiplayer aspect but it is definitely worth a play just to experience this beautiful game.

Agreed. Gorgeous game. Not worth the buy unfortunately. Like you said, multiplayer is present but extremely repetitive.

i agree the game was definitly one of those "buy once it hits $20-$30 price range" but i enjoyed it a lot too and would love to see a sequel where they flesh out the combat more and give us a new story

It's a good rental. The campaign is worth a play through, but the multiplayer gets repetitive pretty quickly. The gameplay was too shallow to keep me engaged.

The multiplayer is awesome. My buddy and I have played a ton of it, and love shouting out "Xbox Record That" after sweet executions

I got it for $40 and it was worth it. The multiplayer is really fun.
