Rise of the Argonauts retells and old, but epic story as is storms into the U.S. on December 16th…

Rise of the Argonauts is a game, that has had ZERO exposure, and for some time this title has peeked my interest. As an action RPG game (Ala God of War) published by Codemasters and developed by Liquid Entertainment, Rise of the Argonauts is set to ship to stores in the U.S. on Dec. 16, 2008 for the Xbox 360, and the PLAYSTATION 3

Rise of the Argonauts immerses players in a gladiatorial adventure set in a wondrously imagined vision of ancient Greece. Taking the role of Jason, a hero and expert warrior, players will battle alongside Hercules, Achilles, Atalanta and other Argonauts as they engage in brutal combat against formidable beasts and enemies, in a vast world alive with fickle gods, jaw-dropping panoramas, deep exploration and epic quests.  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. The trailer looks fine, but maybe its my old fond memories of the Ray Harryhausen film Jason and the Argonauts that has got me all excited for this title.

Sorry to our oral hygenically challenged euro friends but the UK release date is set for February 6th 2009
