Review: Ryse: Son of Rome
by Chris Carter

Crytek has quite the reputation for crafting some of the most visually advanced games on the market. The Crysis games have been a consistent benchmark for PC fans, and even if you don't enjoy their work, it's always interesting to see how much further they can push a piece of hardware.

In this instance, Crytek is set to push the Xbox One at launch, with their first ever console exclusive -- Ryse: Son of Rome. As is the case with many games that are content to present visuals first and foremost, the rest of the campaign basically falls flat..

by Dale North

People keep asking me about Ryse: Son of Rome. I think everyone has questions because we've heard so many conflicting things about the Xbox One launch title since its announcement. Is it a string of quick time events? How does it use Kinect? How's the combat? 

I spent hours with Ryse, playing from its beginning through five levels, putting it fully through its paces. Knowing that some of you are on the fence on this one, I'm glad I can now give a clearer picture this week as we're just days away from the Xbox One launch.
