The game started out good but after sitting and listening to more talking than actual gameplay the game got really boring i found myself skipping the long talks with the x button and trying to get into some action.
Although the game was very educational in the mythical god sense it made no real sense to me. Why the golden fleas?y not just ask the gods to bring her back?well i give it a 4!!!

This game is absolutely terrible. You spend most of the game running from destination to destination and engaged in horrible voice acting and wishing it would end quickly so you could get to one of the few fights in the game. You will literally go without unsheathing your weapon for spells of 30 minutes or more multiple times throughout the game. The camera will frustrate you beyond belief. When you finally do get to engage the enemy don't be surprised when a team mate gets in the way and blocks you in around the enemies with no chance to evade. The health bar/heads up display has to be manually turned on or off and the God "Powers" aren't worth the time that it takes to level up through the grid of powers. The game does look okay, but really I think this game was rushed and done very poorly. It had great potential but pales in comparison to some of the other Greek Mythology games that we have seen before. Trust me, don't waste your time.

This game, besides a few transition issues, is really an excellent game. This game has the completely new type of game feel. While it's really a hack and slash game, the plot line and amount of information about the timeline is astounding.... it really pulls you in and makes you feel like you have to know more to play it well. Graphics are really stellar and gameplay is easy and fun. Excellent game. I hope they make another game soon. This game will be an all time classic great.
