GameSpot writes: "Rygar: The Battle of Argus feels like it belongs in a museum. It's a dusty-looking 3D action game that was originally released more than 6 years ago for the PlayStation 2. In that time, Ninja Gaiden and God of War, among other games, have elevated the genre to new heights. Compared to more recent releases, many elements of Rygar feel outdated now. The combat is far too simplistic, relying more on button mashing than strategic movement and defense, and the story is almost laughable, presenting a predictable tale of good versus evil with overdramatic music and high-school-drama-club-caliber voice acting. However, there is still a solid experience beneath the layers of sediment. The level design is varied and exhilarating, quickly whisking you from Icarus' fortress in the sky to the fiery bowels of Hades, and the bosses are truly nasty-looking. Rygar feels like a relic from a forgotten era, but the joy of decapitating minotaurs is a pastime that never gets old".
