The execution system has different 'perks', so you need to juggle them when playing on harder difficulty, or you will die often. On normal, its too easy and you can just use the 'XP Boost' type of executions and play with one hand behind your back.
The multiplayer gladiator coop is a blast though, and all the exections are unlocked plus pretty much all of the environment can trigger a fatality. No doubt the game is a bit 'thin' for a launch title, but Ryse and Forza are the two most stunning games I've seen in a long time.
