Lethal combinations of weapons and powers granted by the Gods, combined with the battle-tested loyalty of the Argonauts, make Jason a devastating force in combat. Players will change weapons on the fly to outmanoeuvre and inflict lethally devastating attacks on opponents, decapitating them with swords or cutting them in half with shields. Mythological Ancient Greece Brought to Life - Players will battle deadly foes, fearsome opponents and legendary monsters while experiencing a living, breathing and vivid ancient world taking players far beyond the generic broken statues and ruins that so often define the myth.

*Please excuse in spelling or grammar errors in this review as I am only 13.
The action itself is quite enjoyable but can get repetitive after a bit, but the system used to get special abilities by dedicating notable deeds to gods is an aspect which I certainly found enjoyable, and the Constellation system used in part to track progress is an interesting addition.
The thing which drew me more into this game was the soundtrack- which was of a very high quality and kudos to the composer for that.
However, this isn't at all perfect- on a number of occasions my character fell through the map, an invisible wall blocked my path for not killing the last, frozen enemy, and numerous other glitches which can spoil the enjoyment of the game. Also the graphics are not up to the standard of other 360 games, which while it did not pose a problem for me, it may put off others.
A game which is largely story driven- good for those interested in the subject, but drags on for those with little interest in the story and looking at going stuck into action.
Adequate amounts of action in the latter part of the game.
A good selection of weapons and armour.
A wide selection of character feats.
A fresh take on one of Ancient Greece's overshadowed fables, if a little inaccurate at times.
Basic graphics for the 360's capabilities.
Poor camera angles.
Spend the first half of the game talking to people with minimal action intervals.
Loads do not restart from previous saved position but from previous autosave checkpoint.
Basic map with no direction indicator.
Understanding how Aspects work, how to gain Aspect points and how to activate God Powers can be perplexing until learned as no instructions are given in-game.
Expressionless and stoic personalities.
Restricted movement and limited environment interaction.
The game is too short (-12 hours).
It'll never be a perfect game and it's no triple A title but it's just plain fun hack 'n' slash with a few really big monsters & some interesting characters.
