Kind of pointless

Fez Monkey, Amazon
27 August 2010
  • Summary: There is a never-ending sense of frustration about why the epic Greek myths seem to flop as either movies or video games. It certainly can't be the source material. The myths, heroes, adventures, and tales from ancient Greece are filled with blood, lust, greed, violence, pathos, struggle, vengeance, deceit, heroism, and more. The stories soar and keep you in their grip long after they are finished.

It's like God of War, Nintendo style

Siege, Amazon
27 March 2009
  • Summary: Ever wonder what God of War would have been like if Nintendo made it? You'd get something like Rise of the Argonauts. This game feels like 70 percent The Legend of Zelda: Twilight Princess and 30 percent is a PG-13-rated version of God of War. There is some blood and dismemberment. This is not a bad thing. It is just how I perceive the overall feeling of this game.

Let down!

  • Summary: When i first saw a preview of this game i thought it was going to be awesome.I was WRONG! This game totally let me down from what i was expecting.For starters,the graphics in this game could have been a lot better.Second,the combat aspect had no type of advancement.Through the entire game,all your attacks are pretty much 3 button combos.Besides that,you rarely even fight until you've almost completed the game.Most of the time all you do is run back and fourth talking to...

  • Summary: i got it hoping it would be a "god of war" experience. instead it's just a lot of talking and running around. i can't figure out how to get past an early section and to be honest, i quit caring and put GTA4 back into my PS3 and moved on. graphically it's a pretty good game, but if i had played it before buying it, i'd not have bought it. hoping god of war iii comes out soon.

Average game

  • Summary: Its an alright game, the moves are very simplistic and there is a lot of talking and not to much game play in my opinion. It tried to mix two genres together and ended up lacking on both.

"Great game to include in your collection"

4reydo, CNET
30 December 2008
  • Pros: The sharp image quality is one of the first things you notice. Beautiful colors and scenary. The story line is easy to follow with a little history about Jason and his crew, as you play along. I give it + 5pts.
  • Cons: About 50-55% of game is dialog. Sometimes, if you've been killed, you'd have to go through a series of dialogs to get back to the fight scene. Compared to GOW or Assasin's Creed, this is an average game. At $56, it's quite pricy too. i give -2 pts.

Rise Of The Argonauts

  • Excerpt: Bit disappointing really. I was hoping for a good RPG set in the ancient times, but unfortunately it was all a bit boring. Decent enough graphics, but too much running back and forth from location to location for my liking.

Not too bad

StevenJDevon, Play.com
27 June 2009
  • Conclusion: As far as graphics go I was surprised. The gameplay I also enjoyed even if most of it was dialogue based. However the game is remarkably shorter than I thought (although still capable to last a day at least) and for those who chase trophies, this was before they were existent.

Good Game

tinynic, Play.com
27 June 2009
  • Conclusion: Let me start by saying that some of the reviews on here are a little harsh... To be honest there are a few things about this game that will annoy you... Firstly the graphics are the first thing you notice... They're not great... From the PS3 you can now expect a very nicely polished game and this doesn't look anywhere near as good as it probably should... Especially alongside the likes of Killzone 2 (for example)... This, in my opinion, doesn't really spoil the game.
