Rygar has the best graphics I've ever seen. That said, I'll move onto the actual review. Diskarmor mechanics are great-- I loved whipping around a spiked sheild at worm creatures. Enemies are great looking-- insect-creatures, worms, evil plants, and enviroments-- an awesome looking water shrine, huge outdoor enviroments, all sorts of cool places. Now, onto gameplay. A lot of people-- most of the other reviewers -- have given the game a bad score. The game really isn't that bad. In fact, it's one of my favorites. The game has a cool atmosphere which fits right in with the epic boss battles(which prove my first statement about the graphics is correct-- a huge fish, a giganto living statue, a lion type creature, and many more), and the music is terrific. This game has some pretty challenging moments-- liek the spiked wall, for example. And in the end, I have deemed that you have to be a bit patient, and a bit artistic to enjoy this game. Tats not to say my liking of this game is an aqc...
THE GOOD: THE GRAPHICS ARE DROP DEAD GORGEOUS. THE ORIGINAL RYGAR IDEA STILL INTACT
THE BAD: READ THE COMMENTS.
SUMMARY: FIRST OFF GAMERS, DONT YOU HATE IT WHEN YOU COME ACROSS A GAME THAT HAS ALMOST EVERYTHING? THEN FALLS SOOOO SHORT? LIKE DMC2? DUDE...ALL I GOTTA' SAY IS THAT THE GRAPHICS ARE TIGHT. THE GAME PLAY IS SMOOTH ALTHOUGH THEY SHOULD HAVE HAD A TARGETING SYSTEM. BUT THE WORST PART IS THAT YOU END UP SMASHING MOST OF THE ENVIRONMENT THAN YOU DO FIGHTING ENEMIES. YOU CAN RUN FOR DAYS WITHOUT COMING ACROSS ANY FIGHTING. THEN ITS ALWAYS AT THE SAME PLACE.THEY REGENERATE....WE ALL KNOW THIS IS SO WEAK. THE IDEA OF THE GAME WAS SO COOL...DIFFERENT DISC ARMOURS,YOU CAN POWER THEM UP WITH CERTAIN STONES YOU FIND THROUGHOUT THE GAME...BUT FOR WHAT? TO FIGHT THE PILLARS AND ROCKS? TECHMO WHAT A HUGE DISSAPOINTMENT. DONT BUY THIS GAME...DONT RENT THIS GAME...ITS MAKES A GOOD DISCARMOUR THAT YOU CAN HIT YOUR LITTLE BROTHER WITH THATS IT. MAYBE WAIT TILL ONE OF YOUR DUMB FRIENDS BUY IT T...
Rygar: The Legendary Journey takes place during the mythological times in a mystical and surreal land called Argos. You assume the role of Rygar, a battle hardened warrior who is totally committed to rescuing his beloved princess Harmonia from the evil titans who have taken over the land. Basically you need to traverse over great distances and overcome numerous obstacles, battles and puzzles in order to achieve your goal.
The controls are set up in a very user friendly fashion and are very easy to grow accustomed to. Your main weapon is the Diskarmor which is a very useful and powerful shield that acts as a yo-yo of sorts and really slices and dices all who come into contact with it. There are three in total that you will acquire during the game and each will have it's strengths and weaknesses mainly depending on how many enemies you are facing and how far or near they happen to be. There are also a slew of mystical stones that you can find which can then be...
SUMMARY: the story, the confusing power ups, the length of time to finish were all ridiculously bad. the game play while fun left something much needed. Camera angles equal agrivation, and the dialogue.... I mean c'mon "I swear my vengence on this feather!?!!!????" I spend fifty bucks and you swear vengence to a feather? I couldn't decide if I wanted to return this and get my money back or take it out and use it for a frisbee or air hockey, or real hockey or skeet shooting. Tecmo should stick with the graphics because everything else in any of their games churns my stomach.
THE GOOD: fun to play. just challenging enough to keep my interest
THE BAD: cheesy cinemas
SUMMARY: a top notch game if you're into adventure type games.
if you had fun with the original on NES, you will really enjoy this one. Just ignore the lame cinema sequence where the chick that looks like britanny spears sings a wailing dirge. that made me want to stick a red hot poker in my eye. sheesh.
