  1. Carried along by high adventure, interesting sidequests, and a cast of characters I was glad to spend time with, Rise of the Argonauts was an entertaining ride that I would recommend to people interested in the subject matter, or to players who crave an action-RPG that's a little on the lighter side.
  2. Rise of the Argonauts will give you some hours of fun and will even teach a thing or two about Greek mythology but that weird feeling of unfinished business and awkwardness will keep popping up during your quest. If you can bypass these annoyances, you will find some way to appreciate the work and the effort put on this game by the developer to please those “I want innovation but not that innovative” whiny gamers. Why this reminds me of Too Human all of a sudden?
  3. In conclusion, Rise of the Argonauts is a strong RPG title that contains a different perspective on this genre with a classic story, realistic graphics and a truly majestic sound track with a Hollywood style of voice acting.
  4. In spite of its technical shortcomings, Rise of the Argonauts is still a truly fun game that has gotten a bit of a bum rap. The story is very intriguing, and the leveling system is handled superbly.

    The art style of Rise of the Argonauts is unique, characters have depth and personality, lore, narrative, dialogues and story are far fromThe art style of Rise of the Argonauts is unique, characters have depth and personality, lore, narrative, dialogues and story are far from all the cliches we find in most games. 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" .

    Rise of The Argonauts is not greatest looking game for graphics but it does still look great at times in it's art design. I think many criticsRise of The Argonauts is not greatest looking game for graphics but it does still look great at times in it's art design. I think many critics panned this game because of the games heavy focus on story,character interaction and at times the need for investigating some quests to complete them.

    The game has it has it's share of action and the combat is fun but this is not an action focused game. The unique exp/leveling up system based on devoting deeds to certain gods to unlock talents and abilities is both quite original and rewarding.
