On the one hand, Rise of the Argonauts is filled with the inspiration and hack and slash gameplay that made God of War so successful. In contrast to that it also attempts to add the conversational depth of Mass Effect. To try and blend the two styles together is a huge gamble that could either make Rise of the Argonauts hugely successful or see it fall flat on its face. Sadly, despite a valiant attempt Rise continually misses the mark by achingly narrow margins."
