XBox Gaming: Rise of the Argonauts Review

Xbox Gaming writes: "With the release of the movie 300 a while back it was proven that Greek mythology can still sell well in this day and age. Rise of the Argonauts is a game by Liquid Entertainment that features all the mythos and backstory prevalent in Greece but with none of the grandiose visuals or the ability to get your blood pumping. Upon loading up RoA you begin the game seeing how your character's wife Alceme is assassinated by a clan of mystics known as the Blacktongues. Overcome with remorse over the loss of his wife, Jason decides to begin a mission to bring her back to life and so he travels to the Oracle of Delphi where he learns that the only way to accomplish this is to gain possession of the Golden Fleece of legend. From here your journey as Jason begins as you set sail with a band of heroes on the Argonauts' ship to restore your beloved's life."

Pros:

* Excellent soundtrack

Cons:

* Graphics that redefine ugly
* Pointless RPG elements
* Shallow combat system
