As Marius, you’ll engage in brutal combat and lead your forces into massive battles to save Rome from threats to its very existence.

Epic hacking and slashing that falls short of its ambitions, but remains a fun and bloody diversion.

Ryse’s co-op is a good time, delivering plenty of maps and playlists and a decent challenge. Again, though, the combat falls back on the unwanted execution moves crutch. The currency players earn is miniscule at best, shining a bad light on the ability to purchase more gold through microtransactions. ...The visuals are breathtaking, but the gameplay flips on a dime between being legitimately fun and downright bad. There is no middle ground. It’s very much the extreme of both.

Ryse is well-suited to make its entrance alongside a new console, as some of its faults can be overlooked for its commendable bravado and convincing demonstration of power. The bloody spectacle of war and gladiatorial combat are thrilling to behold, and Ryse demonstrates competence even if it falls short of mastery. If Rome were to Ryse again, one would imagine it would be greater.
