overlooked

This was an overlooked title. No.... its not close to perfect, but they brought something new to the gaming world. They brought great mythology and centered the story around it. Most bring it, but have it as a small feature. Even the new Skyrim is using a version of the leveling system. You will see if you play both titles.

Good- The mythology and the characters. You travel to different locations with a linear path and see different forms of life. Famous names like Pan, Jason, Archilles, and God names are main characters. The storyline is a classic story brought to life. You will not get bored with the same thing. The leveling system is unique. As you please the Gods and complete consellations you can level up with the God you choose between Ares, Opollo, Hermes, and Athena.

Bad- The graphics for one. I know its is a 2008 title, but its still not great. The story and characters pull you away from the looks. The people are exagerated in many ways. Hercules is an ogre and Jason is so ripped, he makes the Spartins look like pre-teens. The shortness is another. You can do it under 8 hours. Its took me around ten cuzz I did alot of little tasks.

Ugly- The movement of the lips. Its just motions and arent close with the words. You cant back travel, check the consellations as soon as you open them up and try your hardest to complete with haste. When you progress the story, you lose the chances to do alot.
