I'v seen a lot of hate for this game,harsh words for it... QTE fest, "it lacks depth", "looks generic" and lots more. Frankly the game looks kinda bad but I haven't played it yet, and that is what matters. How the game feels in your hands! You need to feel the controller in conjunction with the game to truly appreciate the game. So what if Ryse ends being the best game ever made or rated as one by the critics? Would you retract from your statements, or would you just say it was Cyrtek moneyhatting the critics?
What do you think? Does Ryse has the potential to be the best game ever? (or at least one of them?)
I think it can! First of all the setting is good, Rome! That's a good place to set a game, you can do some epic stuff!
Second, the battle system may have more depth than you think. Maybe the rumble triggers from the Xbox One in conjunction with the QTE make for an incredibly pleasurable experience! Also we still don't know all the weapons and moves our characters will have (I think) and that could add a great layer of depth to the gameplay!
Third, the story might be one of THOSE. A story that starts rather generic but it evolves into something really weird! Maybe there is a secret ending or something with Aliens!
Until the game is released we can't really judge it, but I belive in Ryse. I belive it can rise to the top of Metacritic. We just have to wait. 99 metacritic is a possibility...
