Ryse has been the butt of many a joke since it was revealed at the Xbox One event earlier this year. It's been called a vehicle for microtransactions, a glorified quick-time event, and a recycled Kinect game that nobody cared that much about the first go around. And these may all be true to varying degrees, but Ryse: Son of Rome is another Xbox One launch title and it's looking way slicker than we thought it would. The Fall of Rome, it would seem, was a gorgeous place to watch an empire crumble.
