Shield bashing is your best friend.
Yep, if you want longer combos, you have to change it up, or they will start dodging. That, and quick throwing your spears to take out their shields.

I am starting to use quick throw of my spears now....oh...and the B button to roll around like a f***ing idiot to avoid their hits.

Think I have it installed still. Been meaning to play coop on it again. Really hope they make another one.

I rarely use roll. Always parry, except when they turn red (though you can still perfect parry the red attacks). Also, watch the enemies. The next guy to attack always telegraphs before moving in. The only thing they really need is when more than one attack at a time. If you are attacking one guy, stick to him alone until some else engages (IE you have to parry). If you start slashing at others, they will attack you and it will cause a dual attack situation. the parry command latency is low and overrides whatever you are doing.

This first time you get a 100 hit combo without taking damage is an awesome feeling! Time the use of the executions to your advantage to get out of tight spots. Don't forget the rhythm of your strikes. Mashing is not a good thing. Try to keep button presses in tune with the action, and use the shield smash after the third strike at least to keep the combo going. I think they start dodging after 3 of any of the same strike.

Thanks Frozpot, I am going to give that a try this afternoon. I am indeed button mashing. I am also holding down X and Y a lot because they give big damage, but it leaves me open to hits.

There is a strategy to the combat. Defense is just as important as offense.

Now this is just making me want to play Ryse again...

You play fighters just like me. I wish I had the temperance to remember X+B+B+LB+flick right stick+A combos. Maybe if it were the only game I ever play for a year I could delve that deep. I play FIFA a lot and miss out on 75% of the cool moves I should be doing.

In my experience you should only hold x or y for a powerful hit at the end of a 3 hit combo.

I am a tad over half way through. It's a good game but still not great. You can tell the original intent was for Kinect. I suspect Ryse 2 built for controller from the ground up would be awesome.

I can say without a doubt this is the best looking game on console. Damn this is f***ing beautiful.

I have been saying this but people laugh at me.
I haven't seen one game on either system beat this in terms of graphics.

You got that right.

Ryse was an ok slasher. But a Ryse 2? Considering what a trainwreck Crytek is right now, no thanks. That company has always seemed to be graphics over gameplay too.

I have 3 chapters left. So far I am enjoying it. I can see it being a 6 or 7 but it will be forgettable other than the insane graphics.

7 is fair for a launch title. Arena is also fun. Trying to keep the crowed happy to make money.

Spiritual successer could happen. It just need to be pretty enough.

Phuk, my bad. No campaign co-op, thought there was for some reason :(

MP is fun as heck though.
Dude...I read it had co-op and I got a boner. Then you go and tell me there is not, and it tucked. :(

Gotta be. No way they woukd tease something like that if there wasn't something to it.

In fact, with God of War doing as well as it is, another Ryse would an incredible addition to the Xbox line up.
