I've got this Game with my first X1 Console, but only finished the campaign once. Hopefully, this month will get me into collecting all the vistas, chronicles and scrolls. And get in touch with the multiplayer a bit more than just the 2-3 matches i played until now....

Played through this one on the easiest difficulty last year. Enjoyed it enough to buy the season pass (for some bonus Gamerscore) and play through it a second time on 'Soldier' difficulty - which I ended up enjoying a lot less. Not because it was too hard or anything - it just gets quite repetitive, and the story obviously doesn't change. Reminded me why I very, very rarely play through a game more than once.

TL;DR: Worth one playthrough for a solid story, great voice acting and nice graphics, and then it's time to move on.

I also got it a while ago but only played a bit of the first level to get a Head-2-Head achievement. I liked what I saw though.
Two can play this game.

What's the multiplayer like in this game? I see there's a rank 200 achievement so how grindy is this?

Everything is this game is so...... Shiny and varnished looking! Shiny floor, shiny catapult, shiny men, shiny women, shiny world!

SHINY! Always reminds me of some random Gears 1 video with RAAM from like 10 years ago... I've never been able to find that video again nor anyone knows it. Still 'Shiny' always reminds me of that. Going so off-topic here... anyway back when I got my X1 I had to chose between Witcher 3 and Ryse, I picked the Witcher and have never played Ryse so far. Luckily it was free with Gold so I'll start it this time around. :)

Yeah, it’s a bit grindy. If you have the DLC or can join someone who has it and play on survivor mode that will help a bunch. I did see a solo glitch but bc of the awful loading times it’s still a grind. The combat gets very repetitive and IMO that helps it become extra grindy. We’re not talking Gears of War grindy but it will take some time.

Like 5-10 hours maybe if you have the DLC. There’s one map that is very easy with very high XP gain.

Reminds me of Perfect Dark Zero for the old 360. Which was also a launch title just like Ryse for the One. And in PDZ they also had an extremey high shiny-filter. Probably just to show what the hardware is able to do. But it looked kinda silly.

I haven't really touched this game for a couple years. So excited to jump back into this. Only got part of the way through the campaign but its been so long I'm gonna have to relearn how to play this.
Every game with DLC that you pay for is a paid update.

Because I have the base game from GwG, does the "Legendary Edition" contain any DLC I can't otherwise get from the season pass?

Too many games have dark palettes. It may not be realistic but it's nice to have some brighter, shinier palettes. laugh

For a launch game, it was very impressive. I can only imagine how it would look and perform if it got a xbox one x enhancement.

I can see the season pass but I can't buy it. Is it not available as a stand alone purchase?

It's strange that they haven't. When they announced the One X enhancements Ryse was the first game that came to my mind.

Not achievement-wise, at least. The season pass will get you all 3 achievement-related DLC's.

I'm really excited to dive back into this game. Definitely one of the most beautiful games I've ever played, even if it's the same three barbarians that are beautiful.
