Forums - Microsoft Discussion - French Ryse preview says they've beaten half the chapters in about 90 minutes

Found on NeoGaf:

http://www.jeuxvideo.fr/jeux/console-microsoft-xbox-one/previews-xbox-one-forza-motorsports-5-ryse-dead-rising-3-killer-instinct-article-600854-1.html

Here's the part

Une heure et demi nous ayant suffit à boucler près de la moitié des chapitres que compte le jeu, autant le dire, on a peu d'espoir de voir notre verdict final chanter une autre musique (à moins d'un miracle sur la fin du jeu ou sur le mode coop)

Which apparently translates to

" It took us an hour and a half to beat nearly half the chapters of the game, so let's say it now, we have little hope to see our final review sing another song (unless some kind of end game miracle or on coop mode "

Don't know french so I can't translate the preview myself, but apparently it's not very positive.

But any opinions on the possibly very short length of the Ryse campaign?

Editted the link, thanks Ethomaz



Prediction: The PS4 will outsell the Wii U and 3DS combined

Apparently I won my bet with prinz_valium

Another reviewer said it took him 7h to beat the game. Let's wait until the embargo drops.

That sounds great! What i have seen so far of the game tells me being short is a huge plus.

Another victory!

“It appeared that there had even been demonstrations to thank Big Brother for raising the chocolate ration to twenty grams a week. And only yesterday, he reflected, it had been announced that the ration was to be reduced to twenty grams a week. Was it possible that they could swallow that, after only twenty-four hours? Yes, they swallowed it.”

I refuse to believe the French can beat anything.

It is usually what people believe when they are totally ignorant about the French history (and battles, all of them not the very "few" selected ones that conveniently fit with your assumption); don't worry a lot of others people are ignorant too, so it is not that bad :)

OP: That's a shame if it is true; still a day 1 game for me...

Yeah it's not like the French practically ruled Europe for dozens of years and made other countries armies look like a bunch of panzies.  /s

Great the German's took over their country in WW II.  So is all of Europe terrible at war as well?  All England had was an ocean protecting it...



Current PC Build:

i7-4770K @ 4.625 GHz, Sapphire 7970 at 1215/1830, 4GBx2 2133MHz RAM, 500GB SSD + 1TB HDD, Blue Ray Drive, and an awesome little case.  

Did they specify what difficulty they were on? Perhaps they were playing a speed through on an easier mode. Not long to find out now for sure either way.

I LOVE paying for Xbox Live! I also love that my love for it pisses off so many people.

If you like a game who gives a shit what a reviewers opinion is???? If you like that Ryse then buy it. I'm buying Killzone SF as its impressed me and i'll get Knack and play it with the kids!

You meant a MS employee playing on the extreme difficult that guessed it took ~7 hours....

I agree. Unless the gameplay is broken. Which I've never understood how a broken game gets past Quality tests.
