Eurogamer Preview: Rise of the Argonauts

What do RPG fans want? Rise of the Argonauts' lead designer Charley Price believes they want a strong, customisable character with choices to make. And beyond that, it should be simple.

There's no juggling inventory items, no health or mana bars, no levelling up, XP or grind, and menus are few. This is a third-person action-RPG built on Unreal Engine 3. And Argonauts doesn't stop at reinterpreting the genre; it also wants to resurrect Ancient Greece.

am really excited. Seeing the videos ad reading the previews,I expect a solid game which will score in around the 7-8 out of 10. Sadly,I don't think it will be a commercial success.
