That keeping the embargo before launch day to drive hype cause it's going to get 9/10 consensus.

People shouldn't blame Crytek, btw. MS execs hired them to make a violent Roman Kinect game and then had them switch it to a controller game half way through development while still insisting on it being a launch game. Of course this was going to be terrible as far as gameplay goes.

Can't wait for Ryse II: Spartan Son, where it's 2 hours long and the story gets progressively worse.

Damn - despite all the speculation, I still thought Crytek might pull it out of their hat.

Shame, this really could have been something.

It's Crytek. All they've ever done is make playable tech demos that you have to pay for.

A bunch of folk seem to be enjoying Knack. I wonder if the same will come through for Ryse.
Some people on here have already prepped themselves to love the game even if they have to play the game with their feet while yelling out kinect commands

I think he had a death in the family, so lets be nice and not jump on him.
Seriously? Oh man I am sorry then Ill edit, can you edit your quote.

I hope it's like Knack for Xbox One owners. Reviewed poorly but user impressions are much, much better.

Should probably not trust the 7-11 security cameras quite so much

5 hours is pretty short, even for a launch title.

Game has been in development for years already.
In development as a Kinect title, yes.

This was always going to be a turd.

I think polygon should be banned at this point to be honest. I don't hear/read any defence for them from even the most hardened fanboy. They're like a referee at a Manchester United match.

Oh dear! Seems like it is a bit pants. Honestly thought it was going to be a good game, with 8-9 review scores.

Seems that there isn't a killer app for either Xb1 and ps4 at launch.

I'm surprised nobody has spoken about Microsoft cheap tactics. They most likely knew it would get bad reviews and put embargo up for Thursday. Too late to cancel now for me.

Average so far from all the reviews in the OP is 55 if I didn't calculate wrong. :eek:

I actually thought this might do worse.

Seems like what most thought it would be; a tedious and monotonous slog that is visually very attractive but with a completely predictable 5-hour story. Seems totally average and nothing really to write home about. Like I say, I thought critics might actually be harsher on it.
