    Absolutely nothing about Rise of the Argonauts stands out as special, and just when you think the game's about to take a turn for the better (at least in terms of reworking the Jason and the Argonauts story), its fundamental and technical problems -- including some annoying loading times in the Xbox 360 version -- bring it way back down.
  2. Die-hard roleplaying game fans might have shrugged off its technical flaws and turgid combat if only the story had a pay-off. But instead of a tragic hero, Jason’s a dud. [Feb 2009, p.86]
  3. A technical mess, ridden with slowdown and glitches. [Mar 2009, p.74]
  4. Too much talk and truly rotten combat. Seriously Liquid, are you taking the myth? [Mar 2009, p.80]

The way they used the source material and mythology is interesting and original, the mix between RPG and Action/Adventure can be surprisingly fun and pleasant for players who like both styles, unfortunately the Action/Adventure moments are not on par with huge productions like God of War series and the RPG elements are not the most deep or complex on the market, but this game still has a lot of merit with the mix of both styles and the presentation of an epic, interesting, deep and unique mythological journey. The game has not the polish of bigger productions with bigger budges on their back, but with a pretty nice and deep story, interesting and charismatic characters, expressive atmosphere and pleasant gameplay, Rise of the Argonauts is for sure a game with a lot of "heart and soul" .

    Dont know why this game is getting such low reviews. This is one of the best rpgs I have played in a while. The plot is epic, the battlesDont know why this game is getting such low reviews. This is one of the best rpgs I have played in a while. The plot is epic, the battles are fun, and the amount of dialogue is massive reminding me of old school rpgs like ultima V where you needed to talk to everyone in the town to obtain quests and advance the story. Great game! Full Review »
