As the King of Iolcus, Jason had everything - a prosperous kingdom, the respect of his peers, and a beautiful fiancé. When she was killed on their wedding day, he vowed to do anything to restore her life. Now, in order to accomplish this heroic feat Jason must seek out the Golden Fleece - and with the help of Greek mythology's greatest heroes - set sail on the most epic voyage of all.

An epic scale action-RPG, Rise of the Argonauts immerses players in a gladiatorial adventure set in the vibrant and powerful world of Ancient Greece brought to life. Taking the role of Jason, players will battle alongside Hercules, Achilles and other Argonauts as they engage in brutal combat against formidable beasts and enemies, in a vast world alive with wondrous inhabitants and stunning panoramas. The search for the Golden Fleece is not only one of exploration but of transformation - from warrior king to exalted hero touched by the gods.

Top 100 Games Reviewer

First of all i don't know what some people who reviewed this game were playing because the combat is outstanding, its fast paced with many combos and atributes to gain and use. The music is well scored and the story well written and interesting, giving hints and tieing in other storys and characters from greak poems/ literature. I studied classical civilisations in school and read about these characters and events and although slightly played up for entertainment purposes it is really enjoyable to play references to them. This is a uniqe RPG with no HUD for combat and other atributes letting the magical settings and amazing visual details shine. strangely for an RPG there is virtually no micro-management which i missed but after ten minutes i didn't care i was so wrapped up in it, just remember that the combat is fast but the story is at a nice slow RPG pace for those all about whats going on. If you skip cut scenes you will find your self lost or missing out. I bought mine on play trade try looking at those prices first for best results if you like acient greace and gladiators excetera and RPG's you will enjoy this amazing game!

 Tell you what , an amazing story .

I've finnished this game and i've played hundreds of games but only ever finnished 2 . It has an amazing story line which keeps you hooked and the fights are brilliant . But they saved the best to last . Little slow at the start and a bit of talking , but interesting talking . Normally i would just press a button to get rid of the talking but not on this game . This game is fun and like the best history lesson you will ever play . Recommended . This is not one your get bored of once youve started . Its also not a stupid hack and slash !!!

 4 stars for originality

I have to agree with some of the other reviewers here that this could have been so much better. However saying that, I enjoyed this game a lot. Unlike some other games it had a great story that was not over in 5 minutes with some good and innovative ideas. You start with Jason and his goatee (famous Greek beard?) and Hercules who closely resembles a mountain and build up a good variety and shape of argonauts. The power up idea is a good one as well. The bad points were a few glitches, very dark areas that you need to set the brightness right up for and some pretty average graphics that look a little dated now. However for originality and enjoyment, 4 stars for me.

This game really annoys me. It had such a chance to be really good with sum gd graphics and ideas but it is to short and very repetitive within the game. Its an adventure game but u cant go where u please and has no real play value after it is completed. Better to rent this game than buy it
