Ryse: Son of Rome – The Lowdown

Posted on April 29, 2014 at 5:43 pm

This game has been out a little while now but it has finally climbed into the top 20 positions in the game charts. As the name suggests, you are Ryse, the son of Rome, and it’s your job to lead your men to defeat enemies.

You also get the chance to fight on the same side as your friends, and you and your friend can fight side by side, blocking incoming attracts and firing arrows.  The graphics really are quite superb, and while the gameplay is relatively limited and the storyline is okay, the graphics certainly save the game as a whole.

It’s the type o game that you sort of expect and there are not enough twists and turn along the way to make the game stand tall above similar adventure games. If you enjoy these warrior-like games than Ryse could be ideal for you, but it’s basically a game that does exactly what it says on the tin, and so far it has earned mixed reviews.
