Ryse offers a rousing score, fantastic voice acting and some hefty, clanking combat audio. It’s really well produced.
Stunning. Character models are incredibly detailed, the environments are all gorgeous and the facial animations are seriously impressive. This is what next-gen looks like.
Incredibly satisfying, chunky combat masks the limited gameplay. Turret and tortoise formation sequences are annoying and dull respectively.
The eight to ten-hour single-player campaign is fun, tells a decent story, and only falters in the final third. Multiplayer is surprisingly entertaining.
Weighted towards single-player and really rather easy, Ryse’s list guides you around every element of the game, from the story to the combat and the multiplayer. Competent.
