WHAT THE BOX SAID
Fight as a soldier, lead as a general, rise as a legend.
Amidst the chaos of the late Roman Empire, become soldier Marius Titus and embark on a perilous campaign of revenge.
Through the immersive realism powered by Xbox One, experience brutal skirmishes and massive battles as you fight to restore honour to Rome at any cost.
WHAT I SAY
Ryse was a narrative 3rd person hack-n-slash at it's core. Though, it wanted to be much more, it ultimately become little more than visual showcase for the Xbox One and CryEngine. The fighting mechanics ended up being very run of the mill and seen before and the overall design generally shallow sadly.
WHAT I DID
My time at Crytek was short-lived. I didn't enjoy Frankfurt or the company if I'm honest. While I was there I worked on the opening mission which remains relatively intact, while also working on prototypes for formation gameplay which ultimately didn't really make it into the final game sadly.
