A short and sweet game!

  • Summary: If you are looking for a game with a great story (greek mythology), memorable characters, and simple battle system, then this is for you. The graphics are not bad and the voice acting is just fine. It has some rpg elements like choosing your answers in conversations and choosing the skills you would like to invest in to improve your fighting. Over all this is a good game and I would recommend it to anyone looking for an action rpg.

Excellent Game!

  • Summary: Rise of The Argonauts was a very satisfying buy. The game is very fun, the graphics are very good and you are transported to the Greek Mythology era. For any Greek Mythology or Fantasy-Fiction fans I highly recommend it. You get to see all kinds of legendary characters, from humans to monsters. The fighting action is intense, dynamic and overall very good. Unlike other RPGs, the weapon-changing system is very fast and efficient.

  • Summary: Good game but it would be better if you had better control of the Argonauts in battle. It is good that it gives you many choices on how to upgrade your weapons and armor along the way.

  • Summary: If possible - I would have given 3.5/5 This game is better than the critics said!! I thought it could have been a great game, but fell short of that. The story is great, I just wish the game around it was executed better. Before I start with the gameplay, the graphics on this game are just above PS2 level, slightly better simply because the HD allows it to stay non-pixelated on my 50" TV.

Fun Game, Too Short

  • Summary: The game was easy to pick up and very fun to play. Graphics were good and it had a good storyline. I did, however beat it in three days time. If not for the last part, it'd have received a 5 star.

Average, But not Great

  • Summary: 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.

A very solid and fun game with some minor flaws.

  • Summary: [Story:] Rise of the Argonauts takes place in Ancietn Greece, when the gods walked among humans and all manners of beasts roamed the lands. A place where the line between reality and dream seem to blur together and make anything possible. And that is, in fact, the premise of this entire game: Doing the impossible. You play as the mythic figure, Jason. King of Iolcus and Warden of Zeus, it is Jason's task to defend his island home from all threat.

rise of the argonauts more like fall(sort of)

  • Summary: I actually liked this game but it could have been a lot better. The storyline was good. The weapons and armor upgrades were nice as well. The fact that you can talk to just about anyone is cool as well. You get to decide how to respond to people based on what your four patron gods would expect you to say. I feel like the graphics could have been better and the game was too short. Apart of the reason it was too short was becasue it was too easy.

  • Excerpt: When i first started this game i hated it for its dull none action based gameplay. it seemed to be , go over here fetch this thing then go here and bring this other thing zzzzzzzzzzzzz action! i thought but then i was rewarded with one of the best games i've ever played, the games about meeting other characters in the game and choosing the outcome, this made the game amazing, include history of greek mythology, gods such as zeus, athena, apollo etc...
