Rise of the Argonauts
It was all there but a few things missing.
Honestly i really loved this game when i first played it. Now I look back and think there are just a few things missing that were crucial to us gamers for instance the graphics were good but not great the sounds and characters voices and ambiances are all what i expected and really enjoyed but the gameplay was short and the story wasn't as epic I honestly think that whoever developed this game should make some references to other games like god of war, warriors legends of troy, and spartan total warrior, all in all this was a good game and obviously there was something that appealed to everyone who bought it otherwise we wouldnt have bought it just saying.
If you enjoy any of the KOTORs, its very similar in the way the game i set up. It has great game play/ story but it was a fairly quick game that after playing it once, you might not choose to play it again.
Worst game ever made. I really cant say anything more except dont waste your money its just really horrible.
Amazing if you like fighting mythological RPGs
It has a decent story line and pretty good fighting system. Its similar to the god of war playing style but its more short and sweet. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys bloody fights and quests guided by Greek gods.
Rise of the agronauts is a waste of money. It has ps2 graphics. The game is very easy. Combat system is just lame. Same finishing attacks all the time. All you have to do is press triangle to win basicly. Whenever i press triangle i chop a guy in half the same way over and over again. This game gets boring after a short time. Story is not so bad but still pretty boring. The whole game looks like a cartoon. It has tons of glitches. Characters just disappear. I have no idea why its in the RPG genre, its a action/ adventure game. King jason is very corny in this game. If you are a dedicated gamer you will finish this game in less than 3 days. If your looking for a good rpg game this isint it. But if your into hack and slash games with bad graphics this is the game for you.
For Anyone Who Likes MythologyThis game Is a MUST GET
Rise of the Argonauts is a great game. Really the only negative thing about it is that you stop to talk Alot. But this game has a fantastic storyline. This is a great game for everybody who likes mythology, or just wants a good game. You are King Jason and you partner up with Hercules, Achilles, Pan, and other Greek heros. You search for the golden fleece and visit the oracle along the way. Also you take place in many arena battles. You also get favor points when ever you do something to please Apollo,Ares, Hermes, and Athena. You can use favor points to buy new powers, like slowing time and healing other Argonauts. Also there are secondary missions you can do, by talking to people. You also fight or fight with centaurs, minotaurs, black tongues(which are the assassins that killed Jason's wife)and other mythological creatures. This game is a great buy, especially if you like mythology!
Rise Of The Awesome
Rise Of The Argonauts is a great game. There is so much action, fighting, and cool boss battles. It's about a guy named Jason who is about to marry his wife but she gets assassinated. So Jason goes to all thes cool places to find the Golden Fleece to bring his wife back to life. Along the way you will fight these evil wizards called Blacktounges, soldiers, and multiple bosses including Medusa and others. Your main weapons are a sword, spear, shield, and mace. The are special moves you can do with each of them. For example, with the sword you can slice someone in half. And with the mace you can smash someones head off. And all of these cool moves have a slo-mo effect. Blood and guts in slo-mo! NICE!!! This game is very long and took me about 5 to 6 weeks to beat. You really don't customize your character that much except for armour, weapons, and god powers. The controls are easy to learn and the graphics are great. This game is very challenging and you will find yourself getting killed a lot, but if you just keep on playing you will beat it. Overall I give this game a 9 out of 10 and I say this game is a must buy.
Save Your Money
I read the reviews on here and I decided to get this game. When I put it in my PS3 I was hoping for a game where I could build a character like Oblivion or Fallout 3. After playing for about a half hour I decided the game wasn't what I wanted to spend my money on so I returned it to gamestop. The thing that I didn't like at all is that the game just seemed to be a button masher type. You hit square for attack and triangle for power attack. With the sword and using power attack it made the character cut the other person in half EVERY time. It would be ok if it was every once in awhile but for it to happen every time just bugged me. Also when going through the world it takes awhile to load the next screen. Instead of just going through a door like in games ive played on ps3 it has delays until the next screen loads.
Average, But not Great
The game was all right, I was excited about playing this game because when I read about it, I imagined a free world roaming type of game. But I was wrong, there is not to much fighting in the game, its more of a movie and doing little quest for people and upgrading your powers. The storyline was pretty good if you like greek mythology. There is a lot of names you cant even pronounce but, just stick with it and it gets easy. The graphics were not bad, its good but nothing you have never seen before. The storyline is the strongest part of the game. Some cool weapons are available. Spears, swords, hammers... Simple game. Not very hard, would recommend the game to like young teenagers, to learn about the gods. And its easy enough for a young gamer to beat and get through.
had some flaws but still not bad!
now this is going to be short, sweet, and to the point; so here it goes. Now this game says its and rpg but i found it just to be another go around and kill the bad guys type of deal the only way it resembles an rpg is that you can change your outfit, weapons and what kind of god powers you want and none of them are all to special to begin with so no real point to them. But now lets talk about the what you'll experience in gameplay. The challenge isn't that tough you just go through the island of where you are complete main missions and side missions which reward you either more weapons, armor, or unlock more abilities. Next controls and graphics controls are desent not really complicated you have a wounding attack and a execution attack to finish oppenents, and graphics are pretty good except unless its a main cinematic movie in the game all they really do is just stand around like statues and talk but at least they look good doing it.. THe sound is cool. The storyline though is where it's at. The story is that jason the king of Ioclus and his wife is killed by this ancient organization who believed killing here would bring them ultimate power so upset with this goes after the golden fleece to bring her back to life meets other greek legends along the way that help you with your quest and yada yada yada you get the picture. Now its not a very long game so i recommend you at least rent it if you like these kind of game and then make your own decision of it. So even though i think this game was trying to copy god of war in some ways it still is nowhere near as good as the god of war series but if they really more effort and if they choose to do more like this and enhancing the flaws it could possibly rival it but only with some major improvements. So my final personal score is about 8.2/10 pretty good but only if this was there experiment into these kind of game and with a little bit of work these can truly be great!
