Product Details:

As the King of Iolcus, Jason had everything - a prosperous kingdom, the respect of his peers, and a beautiful fiancé. When she was killed on their wedding day, he vowed to do anything to restore her life. Now, in order to accomplish this heroic feat Jason must seek out the Golden Fleece, and with the help of some of Greek mythology's greatest heroes, Jason will set sail on the most epic voyage of all time.

A grand scale Action/RPG, Rise of the Argonauts immerses players in a gladiatorial adventure set in an epic vision of ancient Greece. Taking the role of Jason - a hero and expert warrior trained by none other than the lord of the Centaurs - players will battle alongside Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta, and other Argonauts as they engage in brutal combat against formidable beasts and enemies, in a vast world alive with fickle gods and jaw-dropping panoramas.

KEY FEATURES:

  • An Epic Scale Action/RPG - Players will grow Jason from young king to true legend as they set sail aboard the Argo and explore a dynamic world of islands filled with shining cities, lush jungles, deep forests, and vast oceans. As they progress through the story, players will be able to upgrade Jason's weapons, armor and stats, add and swap out new Argonauts, and customize the Argo based on islands visited, items collected, and much, much more.
  • Jason, Party of Three, Table for One - Throughout the search for the Golden Fleece, Jason will be accompanied by some of Greek mythology's greatest heroes, including Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and more. As Jason comes across new heroes, players can add them into the mix to accompany Jason on his quest. Jason can have two additional Argonauts with him throughout the game, but it will be the player's choice to decide which heroes are best suited for each part of the journey.
  • Brutal, Blood-Spurting Combat - Gamers will leave their mark on ancient Greece as they engage in heart-pumping, lethal, blood-spurting combat against hordes of enemy warriors, ruthless beasts and truly formidable mythological creatures. Whether Jason is lopping off heads or cutting warriors in half with his sword, of Hercules is tearing the arms off of an incensed Dryad, the combat in Rise of the Argonauts will leave players wanting for their next confrontation. Further, the Jason and the other Argonauts can combine combat tactics, where Hercules might bear hug an enemy from behind while Jason bashes them to a bloody pulp with his mace, for example.
  • The Gods are Watching...Always - Like all true heroes of Greece, the gods follow Jason in his quest for the Golden Fleece. Jason will gain the favor of the gods and earn special abilities, but his actions may please some gods and displease others. Earning a god's favor will grant players powers within the god's domain, but drawing a god's wrath may cause them to inflict a torment on the heroes at the worst possible moment.
    Rated 1 out of 5 by from Extremely broken system It was a fun little pick up. Good story and fun gameplay. BUT I got two hours in and manually saved the powered then 360 down. Came back the next day and tried to load the game. It wasn't there. I thought I'd done something wrong do I tried again. But when I save it says "Saving" but doesn't save the game at all. I did research and I'm not the only person, not by a long shot, dealing with this. I tried several solutions listed online but none work. The games enjoyable but it's save system is non existent. That alone makes it not worth getting unless you plan on running through it in one setting.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Surprisingly good For 6 bucks this hack and slash has both storytelling and in depth characters. Build your team and travel to hades itself. The complex upgrade system based on the gods of greek mythology may be to much for younger gamers or stupid people to grasp. If you know the history join the fight you won't be disappointed.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Underrated but awesome I didnt expect much from this game, however once I played the game engrossed me into its world characters and story, the combat can be really fun the only complaint I really have is that the graphics can be buggy here and there and theres alot of backtracking, also if you prefer story over gameplay then this is the game for you

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from most underrated game ever. simply put, beautiful, imaginative, and cut from a different block than all of the generic over-done fodder on the market. the voice acting, design, and story telling is fantastic and blew me away. if you are interested in *opening chests* and getting new armor, and completing random little quests, you will be disappointed. the BEST thing about this game is that is is very simple in gameplay. it is VERY good at being what it is. the only fault imo is that it is too short. :)

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from Great Game This was a great game. End of story. It had fantastic graphics, great combat, it ha personalized decision making based upon the aspect of a god or goddess, and it was fairly in depth. It is a short game, and to replay it you must start over, but i played this game 4 to 5 times and never got sick of it. If you aren't a super hardcore gamer then you would like this game, because there is a set plot and it has the ability to change difficulties, very easy to moderately hard (based on what i found the lowest and highest difficulties to be) It is a great game if you like storyline play with an aspect of roleplaying decision making. The voices were also good for this game, and Jason, your character had the perfect voice, strong but not overpowering, kind but stern. The voice of a leader. The voices in a game can really make or break the game. But this was great. So again, great game.

    Rated 4 out of 5 by from ok game but to short the graphics were awesome, and the story quite well worth buying it used, so too was the sound worth it but this game just dont last its good for a weekend rental if your gonna play it nonstop. i have restarted this game several times since i got my xbox and this around wednesday last week, its monday now and last night at like 1 am, ok this morning but still i did the first bit of the game (iolcus, the first time your tyhere, and most of mycenae) then all day today after i woke up sat and played through everything else till getting baclk on iolcus and now only have to make it in the room where your dead wife is to save her, this game took no time at all to beat. however the centaur boss was tough the first time i fought him, so far he is the toughest boss ingame, and that includes being tougher than he was in the underworld in my second battle with him. simply put, coulda been a great game but to much running around talkin, not enough action, and no real replay ability other than wanting to get all the god powers to try once and the story is so short that its hardly as good as it should have or could have been
