One thing that really surprised me was Crytek’s Ryse (codename Kingdoms, published by Microsoft). Ryse is a full-blown Kinect game with a medieval setting. Top! Trailer after the break.
Are you skeptical because it’s a Kinect game? Maybe Crytek will come up with a controller version as well, but I wouldn’t count on it. The trailer looks very promising and the medieval Rome setting is not something we see in every other game. If you liked the movie Gladiator and have a Kinect, then this game should be on your watchlist!
