Mar 6, 2014This game was ahead of its time. Critics seemed to have taken the high production values for granted. This is an epic tale worth exploring for the story alone. The artwork is amazing. Very few bugs. Great voice acting. If anyone was to make a game to explore Greek mythology today the game would probably not make money.
TanerY?ld?r?mDec 31, 2008It's neighter a God of War nor any other RPGs. This is something like a movie whose director is just you. You make your own choices, you make your own history, you make your own story, you choose and follow your own fate. This game is absolutely fantastic. Yes, it has some bad flaws such as dated textures, stiffed animations expecially on characters' faces, no mini map, a little stuttering and frame drop. But the goods definately outnumber the bads.
Excellent sound design, voice and music that suit the characters and whole story.
Excellent story that sucks you in and provides you choices to direct your own movie.
Excellent cut-scenes that suit the story.
Excellent fighting system with lots of varieties and choices and finishing moves with a good use of slow-motion.
Excellent, innonative skill tree and experience system.
By the way, remember, strong stories in the games is the future of the gaming industry. I have been in PC gaming for 11 years. Now i can clearly see that how a strong story completely changes all of my feelings about a video game. I was almost crying in some parts of ROTA.
A must buy.
Eagerly anticipating the next Argonaouts story with a little more action and bug-free gameplay.… Expand
A solid and yet pointless action-rpg that is missing almost everything what made God of War a blast: spectacular bossfights, a thrilling plot, charismatic characters, impressive architecture and design, a fluid combat system and an epic orchestral soundtrack - you won't find any of that in Rise of the Argonauts.
