I may actually get Forza now because the reviews are all extremely good.

I almost cancelled my Forza preorder, glad I didn't.


To tOP:
Someday you'll come back to your senses, pick up tONE and we can put all of this behind us.

I hope every Xboxer's launch day experience is as smooth as mine was. PS4 delivered to my door, at a time at which I happen to be home. Plugged it in, downloaded the update. No problem. Played all night.

Good luck to all of you!

It so far seems to be all over the board, with the real reviews coming out tomorrow. The one constant is that it looks absolutely amazing.

quote:

I've played a fair few next-gen titles now and while Killzone: Shadowfall and Forza 5 are impressive, there's something about the facial and body animations in Ryse that consistently thrill me. That they're applied to such a cool game is jolly good luck, too.


quote:

The story is surprisingly good for a game so hell-bent on being as military and bloodthirsty as this is. Ryse is a game so masculine and hardcore, playing it is akin to watching the battle sequences of 300, Gladiator and Spartacus edited to music by Amon Amarth and Manowar.


quote:

What the combat system relies on, rather than complexity, is timing. Getting the timing right on parrying an enemy blow, then the combination in which you strike back, and the precise timing of each of those strikes, is what Ryse is all about. It's a very tight focus for gameplay, but I found it to be highly satisfying. Its simplicity is a big part of why it works.


Once an enemy's health is worked down enough, an execution can be performed. That's when the real fun starts. There's well over 100 brutal kill animations in Ryse and they're a constant thrill to watch.


First review
