Rise of the Ronin’s great combat can’t elevate a pedestrian open world

Team Ninja delivers a jack of many trades, but it fails to double down on any of them

Rise of the Ronin’s great combat can’t elevate a pedestrian open world

Rise of the Ronin is a fine open world adventure that never elevates itself to greatness. Fun Team Ninja combat will drag you through, but pointless open world fluff and questionable visuals sadly result in just another open world game.

  • Team Ninja combat never dissapoints
  • Bakumatsu period makes for a unique setting
  • Pointless open world fluff
  • Visually poor
  • Derivative
3 / 5
