    Good, but unforgivably short.

    Rygar: The Legendary Adventure was the first game in a recent trend of remaking classic 8 bit games that hadn't been seen sequels in over a decade and bringing them to the current generation of PS2, X-box, and Gamecube. ... Read Full Review

    This really is a '10' game for graphics. For the PS2, I have never seen such detailed textures and creatively made environments. Since this is an action game, you don't really interact with the environments except to de... Read Full Review

    I'll try to be fair...

    Ok, I bought this game when it first came out. Seeing as I am a huge fan of two subjects (Ancient Asian culture and Greek mythology), I had to check it out. I remembered playing the original on the NES back in the da... Read Full Review

    Honestly, the only drawback from Rygar is the short length Of the Game!

    Rygar is rich with stunning graphics (especially the Poseidena Shrine), and excellent gameplay. The length of the game is the only thing I think that could have been better. The soundtrack is one of the best I've ever he... Read Full Review

    Rygar got some good elements, but it just isn't enough to make a great game......

    The best thing about this game sure is its graphics. The value is just to low, you play the game, and you beat the game some hours after, I completed it on 4 hours, it is a very short game. The gameplay can also be irrit... Read Full Review

    The workingman’s watered-down God of War.

    I was looking through the bargain bin at Wal-Mart and to my delightful surprise, Rygar: The Legendary Adventure was staring up at me. Being a huge fan of the original Rygar, I was thrilled. I popped it into my PS2 and ... Read Full Review

    Tecmo created an action-adventure game that, surprisingly, is very interesting.

    Originally an 8-BIT classic, Rygar is back courtesy of Tecmo, and this new rendition does not disappoint. Find out if you should own it, in this full review. Rygar was originally conceived for the NES, and many of the gr... Read Full Review

    Oh boy, I'm glad I accidentally discovered this game. Now I must smash something.

    "Rygar for PS2?" Yes, it exists, in case you don't know yet, and it's a lot better than most of the games you'll actually hear about. Gameplay The gameplay is a good balance of exploration, combat, and platforming. ... Read Full Review

    Classic Old-School Adventure Game.. Don't expect God of the War here but still worth a weekend of fun.

    With all the super fast paced non-stop action games out there like DMC or GOW or others its nice to play a slow paced old School adventure/exploration game. you dont need 1000 items or 10000 combos to learn in this game... Read Full Review
