Latest video and screenshots of Crytek's Xbox One launch title.

Joining Dead Rising 3 in today’s flurry of Xbox One media is the Crytek-developed launch title Ryse: Son of Rome. Several websites went up with new previews, video, and screenshots of the game.

IGN‘s video preview says Ryse is “shaping up to be a good game, in its own right.” GameSpot‘s story ponders whether the game’s hack-and-slash rhythm can vary enough to avoid tedium. And Game Informer‘s story, in contrast to the former two, says the game is “as fun as dialing phone numbers.”

Watch the footage below. View the screenshots at the gallery.

Combat Overview


IGN Video Preview

  • Bryce Blalex Douglas

    “As fun as dialing phone numbers” Well people did have fun making prank calls when they were younger so that’s something….

  • BossTuff

    Game looks pretty amazing visually. The gameplay looks repetitive, in the end it looks like it’ll just be another hack and slash. Appears to be a standard launch game formula.

  • Budgiecat

    This game will be forgotten

  • Nitraion

    Graphic is nice, looks fun yet repetitive…
    are enemies gonna pause every single time?

    • SolarisSpell

      I’m going to bet that the pause to counter will be the game’s normal mode, but in hard mode the is no slow time and you need quick reflexes…

      I don’t know, but it might be interesting. Similiar to Batman Arkham I presume
