Summary: Honestly i really loved this game when i first played it. Now I look back and think there are just a few things missing that were crucial to us gamers for instance the graphics were good but not great the sounds and characters voices and ambiances are all what i expected and really enjoyed but the gameplay was short and the story wasn't as epic I honestly think that whoever developed this game should make some references to other games like god of war, warriors legends...
Summary: I'm not an experienced gamer (to be honest, all I have played during the last 20 years - I'm 35 - is Chess, on the computer). Before that, between ages 11-15, I played some Battle Chess, Elite (space simulator) and Test Drive on the computer, and some of the old games of the late 80's, like the first Super Mario on Nintendo. On the previous Atari-like consoles, I never played nothing more elaborated than River Raid or Enduro. That's it!
Summary: I recommend this game to people who want to learn about mythology and the different Greek gods and their domains, characteristics..etc. Instead of the pointless blood and gore that you find in many games nowadays (I'm looking at you God of war), Rise of the Argonauts offers the thoughtful story of Jason. Buy this for your kid and he/she'll learn a ton of facts about Greek mythology. It's worth playing for that fact alone.
Summary: It has a decent story line and pretty good fighting system. Its similar to the god of war playing style but its more short and sweet. I'd recommend this to anyone who enjoys bloody fights and quests guided by Greek gods.
For Anyone Who Likes MythologyThis game Is a MUST GET

Summary: Rise of the Argonauts is a great game. Really the only negative thing about it is that you stop to talk Alot. But this game has a fantastic storyline. This is a great game for everybody who likes mythology, or just wants a good game. You are King Jason and you partner up with Hercules, Achilles, Pan, and other Greek heros. You search for the golden fleece and visit the oracle along the way. Also you take place in many arena battles.
Summary: Wow I was super surprised by how much fun and how much this game sucked me into the story line and game play. There are the common player setup choices you can make as to how badly you want to die. The Graphics are great. Not to many glitches. My biggest complaint is the save data system. I have still have yet to truly figure it out but I do know if you don't save a lot can lose and entire time of your playtime and if that happens you will go nuts and rip your hair out.
Summary: Rise Of The Argonauts is a great game. There is so much action, fighting, and cool boss battles. It's about a guy named Jason who is about to marry his wife but she gets assassinated. So Jason goes to all thes cool places to find the Golden Fleece to bring his wife back to life. Along the way you will fight these evil wizards called Blacktounges, soldiers, and multiple bosses including Medusa and others. Your main weapons are a sword, spear, shield, and mace.
Summary: The camera angle and gameplay will take some getting used to. But once you figure out how to use the maps and orient yourself, it's a highly-rewarding game. Set in Ancient Greece, the storyline of course borrows heavily from Greek mythology - which is alot of fun if you have background with the source material. The combat is pretty straightforward.
Summary: Before I say anything about the game, I must warn everyone.. If you don't like a long story, and lots of reading, than this game will seem tedious to you. As for me, I thought the story and the game as a whole was extremely well done and very refreshing. Rise of the Argonauts is based on the story of King Jason and his quest for the Golden Fleece. His kingdom of Iolcus is infiltrated, and his wife is assassinated.
