Serious Sam: The Random Encounter

Hooked Gamers
3 January 2011
  • Conclusion: If you still need the obvious pointed out to you, then you will be as dumbstruck as us when we found out the true nature of a game called Random Encounter . That is to say that Random Encounter can be slung into the same file as Marmite; you either love it or hate it. We sit in the latter category for the most part, but for those who find themselves on the other side, there is plenty of reason to pick up Random Encounter . For one, it is very cheap to buy.
  • Pros: Turn-based combat is twisted to be crazy and over-the-top, funny banter between characters, short-lived
  • Cons: Divisive gameplay, repetitive, becomes a chore to play

Outdated PS2 Port Crushed Under Weight of Time

Game Informer
22 September 2009
  • Conclusion: Concept: Port an old PS2 action adventure title based off Greek myths over to the Wii with limited extras Graphics: Need proof that Wii games don't look any better than last generation games? Look no further Sound: The musical score is fairly decent, but the voice acting could use some work and a better script Playability: The game plays like a six-year-old title, and Tecmo did little to polish its dated mechanics Entertainment: The game isn't devoid of fun, but Wii...

Rygar: The Battle of Argus Review

29 August 2009
  • Excerpt: Rygar: The Battle of Argus feels like it belongs in a museum. It's a dusty-looking 3D action game that was originally released more than 6 years ago for the PlayStation 2. In that time, Ninja Gaiden and God of War, among other games, have elevated the genre to new heights. Compared to more recent releases, many elements of Rygar feel outdated now.
  • Pros: Fighting mythical creatures is fun, Levels are varied and interesting, Freaky-looking bosses
  • Cons: Lame story, Combat is too simple, Gladiator mode is tedious

Expert Review

8 July 2009
  • Summary: I'll give the original PS2 Rygar some credit for beating Kratos to market by several years with the whole ''chain blades meets Greek mythology'' idea. However, God of War and several other action titles have essentially rendered the old Rygar formula obsolete. Some companies might up the ante with an all-new game, but Tecmo is content leaving the game almost exactly as-is.

Rygar:The Battle of Argus (Wii) Review

2 May 2009
  • Summary: If you are looking for a hack n slash game for the Wii, Rygar could satisfy your urges for a few minutes, but there are far better titles out there to get your fight on with. Plus with this being a remake of a game now seven years old, they really should have tried harder to bring something new to the table. A new skin for Rygar is not enough for me to recommend this game.

Rygar: The Battle of Argus

Hardcore Gamer
25 April 2009
  • Summary: This game is terrible. There is no way to be diplomatic about that. Rygar: The Battle of Argus has very few redeeming qualities.
