RYSE: Son Of Rome Game Review Note: I tried to make this review as spoiler free as possible. I hope you enjoy! Plot summary: Ryse: Son of Rome is a 3rd person game set in Ancient Rome during the war between Rome and the Barbarians. It follows the story of Marius Titus, a Roman Centurion whose family is murdered. The story depicts the time when he entered the Roman army, to the time when he became a General and a great leader. Marius sets out to kill the barbarians who murdered his father, but discovers the truth to his families demise and is determined to have his revenge on his families murderers. Gameplay: Ryse could be called a button smasher, but not nearly as much as fighting games such as Marvel Vs. Capcom, Mortal Kombat, and others. You have a main attack button [X], a parry or break defense button [Y], a counter button [A], and an evade button . Each of these buttons are utilized quite evenly throughout the game as you journey to different areas and face different kinds of enemies. These controls are included with a quick time event kill finishes, where when you see a skull over an enemies head, you press the Right trigger to start the kill finish. There are also javelins you can take from dead bodies or stands that you can use to throw at enemies from a distance, these controls are highlighted the impulse triggers, the longer you hold the trigger down, the more accurate the throw is. Certain points in the game allow you to command your army into defending and attacking certain positions. There are times when you need your army to help you approach a dangerous area, thus creating the testudo formation, this formation allows you to cover yourself as arrows are being fired at you, and also allows you to throw spears at the archers while they are preparing to fire the next set of projectiles. There are also some Crossbow stations (Rapid fire crossbow with flaming tips) that can be used in certain areas of the game, you also utilize the same controls as you did by using the javelins. You can also upgrade your characters health, focus, and combat strengths throughout the game. Kinect: Kinect is utilized in the control scheme as well, you use Kinect for voice commands to command your army/garrison in certain areas of the game (often times in a large war-filled area/level). Voice commands such as "Fire Volley!" are used to control the archers, they often provide assistance to you when you are feeling overwhelmed in battle. They are usually just enough to assist you with getting through the levels. There are more voice commands you can use, but I will leave that up to you all to discover. Visuals/Audio: The visual appearance of Ryse: Son of Rome is one of the best I have seen in a video game. Surpassing that of the Assassins Creed series and the multiple monuments and buildings they revolve around. The audio and voice performances are also top notch as the music helps drive the game forward. The voice acting is also an overlooked but very well done part of the story and the characters. Sound effects and object sounds add to the game to help you feel like you are in Rome. Ryse, offers different scenic locations, from the marketplaces you pass through within the city, to a dark forest area where there are traps, rivers, fog, and other things you often have to go through to reach your destination. The game is very detailed and looks and sounds incredible. Summary: Ryse: Son of Rome offers fun gameplay, a compelling story with an incredible ending, and amazing audio and visual appearance. The game offers another game mode besides the main campaign called "Gladiator" which allows you to play with friends or other people online (Not yet played). I believe that this game will be fun for anyone who plays it, and it should not be overlooked on the Xbox One. Definitely check Ryse: Son of Rome out. I hope you all enjoy it as much as I have. Do take the M rating into consideration, as it is properly given. Review by: John P. aka Mayh3m/Total Mayh3m
