Rise of the Argonauts

Strategy Informer
31 August 2009
  • Conclusion: If you’re looking for a game that will hold your attention span past the first few hours, Rise of the Argonauts is not the game for you. Through the nine or so hours it took to complete the game, there were practically only a few hours worthy of my time and they all came at the start of the game. By the end of the game, Rise of the Argonauts was monotonous to the point where it was a pain to play through.

Rise of the Argonauts

The Gamers Temple
8 May 2009
  • Excerpt: Regular readers of Gamerstemple.com might remember a review I wrote about six months ago for the PS3 version of the once-360 exclusive, Overlord, called Overlord: Raising Hell . Most of the review consisted of me expressing amazement that not only was this little-known game by the not-quite-household-name developer Codemasters actually rather awesome, but it was, in fact, as much or more fun than the bigger name games hitting shelves at the time, namely Ninja Gaiden II...

Rise Of The Argonauts Review

PlayDevil
19 February 2009
  • Summary: " Rise Of The Argonauts " is a really odd game. It’s so unusual for a title to absolutely nail some parts of a game, and then have other parts which are a total horrible mess. If this was some kind of interactive DVD that just told the story using the in-game engine, using the music and everything, this would score really highly.

Rise of the Argonauts

Hardcore Gamer
25 January 2009
  • Summary: Codemaster’s Rise of the Argonauts is an action RPG that is considerably smaller in scope than most other RPGs on the market. Its linear questline offers very little character jiggering and suffers from mediocre combat that gets repetitive due to a lack of variety of weapons, enemies and moves.

GameTrailers

  • Excerpt: Ancient Greek mythology is no stranger to the gaming world, having served as the centerpiece for the recent blockbuster series God of War. Codemasters takes a crack at the fabled era with Rise of the Argonauts, an Xbox 360 game that attempts to combine the action-packed combat of Kratos' games with elements of western RPGs like Mass Effect and Knights of the Old Republic. Is the combination worthy of the praise of Olympus or another abomination doomed to Tartarus?

  • Excerpt: Name: Rise of the Argonauts Genre: Action, Role-Playing Game Platform: Xbox 360, PlayStation 3, PC (Reviewed on Xbox 360) Rise of the Argonauts is like a brilliant story written by a terrible author; filled with technical issues and poor design choices that will have you questioning why the game was rushed for a late-December release when it obviously would have been better suited to a mid-year release and the extended development time that would entail.

  • Summary: The epic Greek tale of Jason and his band of Merry Men finally arrives in the UK, but is it more 'Meet the Spartans' than '300'...

Rise of the Argonauts review

Gameplanet
6 February 2009
  • Excerpt: The graphic combat and rich storyline are let down by tiresome dialogue and endless and confusing travel. If you are a fan of the period and want to wallow in the mythology then this game has it by the bucket (amphora?) load, however game wise its lurching pace destroys its underlying potential.
  • Pros: In places the graphics can be quite stunning and the combat effects take cracking skulls and slice 'n' dicing to the extreme.
  • Cons: Way to much talking and walking.

“Niet helemaal wat het had moeten zijn...”

6 September 2013
  • Excerpt: De meeste gamers zullen waarschijnlijk niet al te veel meer hebben met Goden uit de Griekse mythologie, maar het een en ander wordt ons gelukkig spelenderwijs bijgebracht, zo ook met de game Rise of the Argonauts voor de PC, Xbox 360 en PlayStation 3. Codemasters kwam met de PS3-versie van deze Role Playing actie game.
  • Pros: Erg goede verhaallijn en epische sfeer, Bijpassende soundtracks, De actievolle gevechten...
  • Cons: .. Welke soms te weinig voorkomen, Van het kastje naar de muur gameplay, Vaak te langdradig, ontbreken van spanning

  • Summary: En definitiva: Rise of the Argonauts pierde mucho en el apartado técnico, pero no deja de ser una aventura atractiva con una trama por demás atrayente. Muchas promesas se hicieron en el camino, pero pocas llegaron a nuestras manos.
