Rise of the Argonauts video

Rise of the Argonauts video

Codemasters released this long cutscene of Rise of the Argonauts. It's a bit a slow, but the music is really nice.

Some absolutely terrible animation :/

Don´t know why but graphic style and animations reminds me Too Human... Animations seems to be poor, and graphics only decent/good. It´s not my next buy, that´s for sure... XD

Bad animation, bad graphics and a weird art style.

Like Too Human this could've been good, if the right time/people was spent on it.

heh apart from it not appearing to be all that great, the end really did make me feel sorry for the poor goat dude =(

Are you guys blind, this game... This game... It's... AMAZING.

Well, at least Ed Del Castillo never said: "Hey, look at our fancy new graphics engine! Now would you mind giving us 50 bucks?!". The developers always emphasised how good the gameplay and the mythology were. The cutscenes and the design make me want to play it, at least.

At least some next gen games have a fancy new graphics engine, even if it doesnt save the gameplay, this game just seems to have nothing at all :P

The dialog and script was actually pretty good; just a shame that everything else about it screamed 'last gen', really.

Oh, and that scene with the girl running away across the log at the end cracked me up. Ridiculously woeful. xD

This is a little off topic, but I think Too Human was a good game, not great, but good. Many people I know have played it 2 or 3 times through... you don't do that with a bad game.

The PS2 is on the phone asking for it's backgrounds back.

This game looks just awful. Far worse than first gen 360 stuff.

Doesn't look too great but everything I have read on the game so far has been positive. The voice acting in that clip sounded pretty good as well. Looking forward to this a lot.

I thought the cutscene was pretty interesting... Other than that, it does seem very last-gen (graphics wise)

It's not an RPG, it's a hack and slash button masher with some RPG elements thrown in.

Where did you get that from? That's not what I have been hearing at all.

About the game


What's up?
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX A lot of them do.. but sometimes difficulty modes are poorly designed too. But that's nothing new. People have been phoning in hard and easy modes for decades. (23 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Why can't the AAA games have hard modes like those games, that's what's annoying... (25 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: Nioh and Neir (not yet). They are on my list. I played Dark Souls 1, I played and that's hard for sure. But those games are very few.... we need more! (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Also there are plenty of non-FPS multiplayer games. But maybe if you're looking for a challenge you should be more open to stepping outside your comfort zone. (26 minutes ago)
  • GriftGFX
    GriftGFX Have you played Nioh, Dark Souls 3, and Nier Automata? (27 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane etc.... (32 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @GriftGFX: The issue with what you suggest is they are FPS games and or MP, not my cup of tea. I am talking about SP games: adventure/action/horror. Where are the hard Ninja Gaidens, Dragon Quests (33 minutes ago)
