The lights are on
In a new video documentary, the Ryse: Son of Rome team details the intricacies of combat. One thing becomes clear quickly, hacking and slashing is only going to get Marius Titus killed.
To make the sword-and-board combat feel authentic, Crytek worked with a weapons master. This generated animations and movements that otherwise would have been missed.
Ryse's combat is based on building combos and flowing from enemy to enemy. The team built in a variety of different environment-sensitive executions that take into account water, surfaces to pin enemies up against, and more.

Still looks like a shallow 'meh' kind of game.
I chuckled at the articles title. Yes, I'm still immature apparently.
More to the point, everything I hear about this game is that the experience is lackluster. The controls aren't incredibly responsible and it's a fairly railed experience. I hope the dev can make some needed changes before launch day.
centurions aren't really that good one on one but i can suspend beleif enough to try it out
yes, 'spunk gargle wee wee' I believe it was described as
I like some of the camera angles trough out the fights, but I am a little concern of the executions and pulling you out of the moment/chain combos, hope it does well. Ohh and that Crytek engine looks awesome as always.
I just can't get excited for this game. I'll just wait for reviews on it.
it's a beat 'em up hack and slash with a little strategy to it gameplay it's like a better version of that shadow of rome game on ps2 whenever you move to a next gen sysytem the first game's are mostly if not always 75% about showing you how much the graphics can and will impress now and into the future and these graphics are very impressive.i'm a huge fan of beat 'em up's so im truly looking foward to this game.
This is the only game at all that I'm super interested in that Microsoft has. If I ever buy a One down the line this will be my title for sure!! I really like the combat too, a different change than most hack n' slash games.
This game is looking pretty good. Hopefully Ryse gets some good reviews.
