Bella Ryse's Reviews

Hi, I'm Bella Ryse, Director and Editor in Chief of Real Game Media. I began my gaming obsession back on the Commodore 64 when I was too young to even know how the controls worked, however I have been hooked ever since. As for a bit about me, I'm honored to also be the Brand Manager at Serellan LLC, and am also the Clan Leader for a competitive Call of Duty clan - 0RSM. Other hobbies include the Rural Bush Fire Brigade, Roller Derby, playing video games, writing about video games, and oh yeah - playing video games! I have a strong belief that we have a responsibility to shape the mind sets of the youth entering the gaming industry through our own actions and the examples we set, and at RGM we put a strong focus on ensuring that we set the best example we can.

9.5 / 10.0 - Horizon Zero Dawn
Mar 3, 2017

Horizon: Zero Dawn exceeded all my expectations. From the impeccable graphics to the character development, every aspect of this game compels you to play more. The freedom of the open world coupled with the lore driven storyline is extremely well balanced and flexible. The customization options and variety in quests allows you to linger as long as you like, or push through the gripping storyline to find the answers that you seek. Aloy is a strong and positive role model who inspires you to overcome any obstacle and stay strong during times of hardship. Her character is both refreshing and a powerful influence on the way we see the world as we progress through the game. This is one of the most polished, visually spectacular, and engaging video games I have ever played. The bar has most certainly been raised. Thank you Guerrilla Games, for stepping into the Action-RPG genre, you nailed it!

8.4 / 10.0 - Halo Wars 2
Feb 21, 2017

Halo Wars 2 is certainly a worthy addition to the RTS genre and has raised the bar from its predecessor Halo Wars. The artistic style and cinematics complement each other nicely and are accompanied by a fantastic sound track.

9.6 / 10.0 - Forza Horizon 3
Sep 26, 2016

There are only a couple of really minor things that stop me from being able to give Forza Horizon 3 full marks. The Aussie accents leave a bit to be desired, the amount of time you have to play solo before being able to join your friends online I think is a bit too long and the racing simulation aspect of the game is almost perfect but the game certainly leans towards arcade racing more. FH3 is a rocking time, with STUNNING graphics, tons of customization and a never end list of things to keep you occupied. I highly recommend this game to anyone basically as you don’t need to be a fan of racing games to be able to enjoy what FH3 brings to the party. Well done Playground Games, well done.

9.5 / 10.0 - Ratchet & Clank
Apr 26, 2016

From the moment you load up Ratchet and Clank you are smacked in the face with absolutely stunning and vibrant graphics. I instantly started smiling and continued to do so for that long I lost count of time. Ratchet and Clank follows on from the original story that we played through back in 2002, however this is not simply a remake/remaster, it's an entirely new experience regardless of if you have played the original or not. Made from the ground up to showcase the power of the PlayStation 4, Ratchet and Clank exceeded all of my expectations which were already set very high based on the trailers I had watched on the lead up to release day.

9 / 10.0 - Blue Estate
Feb 10, 2015

Blue Estate has taken this technology and run with it, creating a Time Crisis-esqe style game that is full of quirks and humor. This is the first of what I hope will be many next gen rail shooters for the Xbox One. Based on the comics from Viktor Kalvachey, Blue Estate harnesses the motion detection technology in the next gen Kinect to allow you to feel more involved in the game and also proves for some very entertaining moments when you can't quite work out what to do and find yourself doing 'the robot' dance moves unknowingly in front of your family.
