Maybe it was the uber-manly, over-the-top actionfest that was 300. Or the, uh, uber-manly, over-the-top actionfest that was God of War. Either way, Liquid Entertainment is definitely down with the prevailing cultural opinion that the ancient Greeks simply kicked lots and lots of ass, an idea that is certainly present in their uber-manly, over-the-top actionfest, Rise of the Argonauts.
Well, okay. That's not being entirely fair to the title - from what game designer Andrew Rubino showed me, their Action RPG has quite a bit of, well, RPG under the hood, and the peek at the game's advancement system definitely had me nodding in appreciation for Argonauts' potential in that realm. Even so, that's the sort of thing that one can't really get a feel for in a limited hands-on scenario. What I did get a chance to try out on the PAX '08 show floor was the "action" part, and Argonauts doesn't disappoint."
