Summary: I picked this up because I wanted to beef up my Wii collection, and I loved Rygar on the original NES. So far this game did not disappoint! Admittedly it takes some time getting used to the controls. The Wiimote is not the best way to control this type of game. It looks and acts more like a God of War game than anything else I can think of, but with the Wiimote its easy to get the camera messed up in the wrong spot. Once you get used to it though, its not a problem.
Summary: I was quite excited to play this game when I first purchased it. I remember when Rygar went to 3D on the Playstation 2 and it was a pretty fun game with some limitations in combat and platforming, but fun. So when I put in the new Rygar to my disappointment, I realized the only this "new" in this game is that they re-skinned Rygar, keeping the game the exact same from the ps2 version. This had potential...too bad it was just a port.
Summary: The only problem of this game: being a Version, not a Renake, for the Wii of the same PlayStation 2 title. The story is interesting and all, but Koei-Tecmo could hae don too much more and better for this title due Wii's resources. Who knows another company buy/be hired for a new Rygar game or Tecmo-Koei try rebooting this promissing title soon?
Summary: The game won't appeal to many people besides those who are already Rygar fans. Choppy game hindered by awful camera angles and a mediocre, cliche story. That being said, EXCELLENT service by the vendor. Prompt shipping and an unbeatable price. For Rygar fans, you can't afford not to buy the game for this price. For casual fans looking for a new Wii game, look elsewhere.

Summary: I was at my local Game stop the other day. Low on funds and wanting something to play. So what to do? I wandered around and found two games Rygar the legendary adventure and Sphinx and the cursed mummy both for four dollars and ninety five cents! Wow what a deal and good luck! Good luck because My old copy of Sphinx bit the dust and I really want to replay it. However this is not a review of Sphinx, this is a review of Rygar.
