Fun but too challenging

J, Amazon

  • Summary: I was a fan of the old Rygar game so I gave this one a shot. It was fun for a short period of time but I got bored with it because it was too frustratingly hard at a boss fight early on.

Good but God of War is Great

B. Swanson "Swany 80", Amazon

  • Summary: This is a great game and should be purchased if you love Greco/Roman storylines. The price on Amazon is a rip off though. You can find the game on the gamequestdirect website for about $18.99. The storyline is very generic and fraught with poor voice acting and misspelled subtitles. For $18.99 it's a steal, for $49.99 it's a pass. Hope this helps.

Average game, can not compete with recent titles.

  • Summary: A fun game, based on a number of Greek and Roman mythologies, however, it shows it age from the start. The gameplay is too slow, the developers needed to add a run feature of some sort. I found myself jumping or sliding to get from A to B. The story was near impossible to follow along with if you just played the game and watched the cut scenes. At times I had no idea why I was doing what I was doing!

Comparing this game to God of War.....

Tim, Amazon
15 April 2005
  • Summary: God of War is an "Excellent" game, a perfect 10 out of 10. While Rygar is an "OK" game which I would score as 7 Four Good points of Rygar: 1) During gameplay you can switch between 3 different shields as your weapon. Each shield has its own unique combos. There is a reward system similar to God or War, where you will learn new more powerful attacks as you earn more points. 2) There are also magic attacks.

I Liked It, But You May Not

Shanghaied, Amazon

  • Summary: The closest comparison I can make to this game would be to say that it is like French cuisine; it tastes so unbelievably good but is served in unsatisfying portions. Be warned, this game is not for everybody. I'll give you the bad news before I give you the good. This game is way, way, WAYYYY too painfully short. I read reviews proclaiming this very point and simply didn't believe them, convinced that only big nerds were writing them without the common player in mind.

  • Summary: On the outside Rygar looks like a pretty cool game. It has a cool weapon type, the diskarmor, and the screenshots are fantastic. But when you start playing it you find that it is sort of boring. There are only a few different types of enemies and for the most part they just dance around you and hit you onece in a while, not that it matters, because their attacks do so little damage that you could stand their for ten minutes, not doing anything, before they killed you.

Is and Is not an amazing game...

  • Summary: I must first start off this review by saying that I genuinly had a lot of fun playing Rygar on PS2. This sequal to the original NES classic holds up well in some departments, and fails in others, but nothing that would keep this game from well, being any less fun to play. Now let's start with the goods: The graphics. Yes, the graphics have to be the number 1 thing to mention first because they have got to be probably the most amazing things I've seen in a video game.

  • Summary: this game was ok. i mean the graphics are unbelievable and the fighting sequence is killer but the game is extremely short. it only took me 3 hours to beat this game and the only replay value this game has is playing the game again on a harder mode. that's it. might i suggest renting the game?
