logo for Rise of the Argonauts

Iolcos is a small island in the Aegean. Protected by those who worship Zeus, it is a idyllic place with not much to worry about. Until the wedding day of King Jason and his future Queen Alcmene for which many dignitaries from all over the world arrived - including Jason's longtime friend Hercules. But instead of celebrating the event, the Moriens had other plans, attacked the palace and killed Alcmene during the ceremony. Now Jason wants revenge. But the journey is long and he has to face a dark prophecy.

You slip into the sandals of Jason and watch over his back and control him in a Action-Adventure fashion, as he roams the lands, speaks to the inhabitants and fulfills their requests. Of course Jason isn't just all about walk and talk. He has many enemies that want his death but three different types of weapons (swords, maces and spears) as well as his trusty shield assure that he can defend himself.

    [+] And so, This game has ended after 7.8 hours of gameplay, accoring to the steam clock.

    It pretty much mocked and destroyed every single bit of the Argonauts story and Greek mitology, but that's what I expected. I saw great potential in this game. The companions all behave differently in battles.... too bad that they get no customization or upgrades, since they are used only for few battles, you must do all the stuff. The progression system was interesting, but most abilities were pretty useless and armors and weapons that recreate some powers effect create a strange sense of redundancy.

    Also, its linearity in design and quest progression is pretty... backward when it comes to WRPGs.

    The only thing I really liked, was the 'morality' system and the GPS that the Argo had. Truly magnificent.

    Now, onto the next mediocre Rpg in my steam catalogue!

    Rise of the Argonauts. It got slaughtered in reviews and many people dispise it. I personally liked it. I've always loved mythology and history, so the game to me, was awesome.

    And people saying it had "too much talking" ? People can't read these days it seems ;/. Or they too scared to read.

    • I think the only problem I had with it were that the camera controls were kinda awkward. Still, I agree, this was a really decent game.

[+] Well I finally beat Rise of the Argonauts it was nowhere near as bad as some said it was sure it had its problems but it was good. The main story was good but the sub stories and quests on each island were stupid. The golden fleece armor looks so *expletive deleted* badass but its illuminate effect only worked on the outside portion of the last level not the inside dont know if that was a glitch or its supposed to be like that but finally got through the game was sitting on that last part for like 2 months now and hadn't picked up the game.

    • there was actually a decent movie game recently I cant remember what the hell it was though. Btw did you ever play the Italian Job game? LOL was an ok driving game but it was so frustrating and hilarious that everyone in the game has the out of car speaking thing like from NFS underground where the talk from their car. So funny
