Ryse: Son of Rome pre-launch previews and media

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.”
