"Pretty decent game"
3 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

At first glance this game looks a bit lame, but when you get into the story it all becomes pretty impressive, the graphics arent great but acceptable, and the plot stays reasonably true to the orignal mythology.

So far the game reminds me of a cross of Oblivian style story, with Shadow of Rome style gameplay. With plenty of gore to impress the more brutal gamer (such as myself). I would definately recommend to most gamers.

I would however suggest to rent before purchasing at full price. I was fortunate enough to find the game on special on good ol' Mighty Ape, thanks guys.

"Dumbed down Oblivion"
4 stars"
Purchased on Mighty Ape

This games voice overs is worth playing the game..a very believable storyline and characters. The actual game play is simple with some really good quests thrown in which are not to hard to put off the casual gamer and challengeing enough to keep you interested. You also get to explore some really well made locations. Was a very pleasing gaming experience..

"Very good game."

This game will blow your mind. From the moment I turned on the console on and saw the intro video I knew this game was the game to get. Its truly great and the story is the best 8/10

"Cut Scenes"
4 stars"

Watching the cut scenes reminds me of watching a drama tv series

Description

With deep exploration and epic quests, players will take the role of Jason, King of Iolchis, and battle alongside iconic mythological heroes including Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and others. As Jason grows from young king to true legend, set sail aboard the Argo and explore the vast Aegean - a dynamic world of islands filled with shining cities, lush jungles and deep forests.

Gamers will leave their mark on ancient Greece as they engage in heart-pumping, lethal, blood-spurting combat against hordes of enemy warriors, ruthless beasts and truly formidable mythological creatures. Whether Jason is lopping off heads or cutting warriors in half with his sword or if Hercules is wrestling with giant beasts, the intense action in Rise of the Argonauts will leave players wanting for their next confrontation.

Like all true heroes of Greece, the gods follow Jason on his quests. Jason will gain the favour of the gods and earn special abilities, but his actions may please some gods and displease others. Earning a god's favour will grant players powers within the god's domain, but drawing a god's wrath may cause them to inflict a torment on the heroes at the worst possible moment.
