Rise Of The Argonauts

Rise Of The Argonauts is a console game developed by Liquid Entertainment and published by Codemasters, available on Playstation 3, Xbox 360 Live and PC. The game takes players on a voyage as Jason, King of the Iolcus, in his quest to find the Legendary Golden Fleece, on the lost Isle of Tartarus, to bring back to life Alceme, his bride to be killed by an assassin’s arrow on their wedding day. The game is an RPG where players assume the role of a hero in the world ruled by gods. Based on the mythical story of Jason and the Golden Fleece, players dedicate deeds to appease gods that shape the layered storyline. Players fight alongside Greek heroes like Hercules, Achilles, and Pan and travel to island environments, battle mythological foes and monsters. The game allows players to develop and upgrade weapons and killing techniques, and features a dialogue system that dictates choices, upgrades and story. The game also has real-time combat system with dynamic animation, visual damage modeling, visual character leveling and inventory management in real time.

Features

Built on the Unreal Engine 3 developed by Epic Games, the game is a single-player game, uses the Blu-ray Disc/DVD and has a rating of “M” by ESRB. Players spend more time playing and less time micro-managing inventory and resources through a streamlined HUD and inventory system. Earn unique powers and abilities, but avoid tedious Record keeping by dedicating deeds to a god of choice. Characters become stronger with armor and weapons upgrades significant in scope, leaving enemies nearly helpless. Players learn to appease the Gods and interact with those you encounter, as decisions impact the story flow and available missions. Weapons can be changed on the fly to outmaneuver and inflict lethally devastating attacks on opponents. The game features Bates' (300 composer) musical score.

    Throw the spear by holding the special attack modifier button and then press the Dodge Key or just simply throw the spear by pressing R2+O (on PS3).
