HIGH Rocketing through the air over a chasm before miraculously drawing a vine to save myself from certain death.

Vivisecting History

Ryse: Son of Rome

HIGH Nailing a double execution and watching Marius flit back and forth, gutting two men simultaneously.

LOW Killing the exact same guy five times in the same fight.

HIGH Ghosting through a level without killing a soul or ever being spotted.

LOW Getting blown into a bomb by another bomb and dying.
