Product Description

Polish up your shield and prepare yourself for battle because the action of the Rygar saga is about to continue. Picking up where the original Rygar for NES and Rygar: The Legendary Adventure for PS2 left off, Rygar: The Battle of Argus promises a whole new adventure in the Greco-Roman world, with a new, more burly hero, a new stable of enemies and intense shield-wielding functionality based on the Wii Remote.

2.0 out of 5 stars It Could've Been So Much Better February 13, 2009
Fun: 2.0 out of 5 stars   
Rygar The Battle of Argus is actually a reissue of the Rygar game released on the Playstation 2 a few years ago. Admittedly, I didn't play the original PS2 release. Unfortunately, Rygar for the Wii doesn't come close to perfection. What we end up having is another game ported to the Wii that's given motion sensor controls and the end result isn't exactly the best.

There's not much of a story in Rygar, and so it doesn't really merit much mentioning. It's a little convoluted and disorganized, leaving you with lots of burning questions that don't exactly get answered. It's not a very long game, one that can be completed in one or two sittings, and yet for a story that should've been simple... it's needlessly complicated based on how much it doesn't tell you more so than how much it does. Luckily, most of us won't be picking up Rygar for it's storyline.

There's nothing really complex about Rygar. You swing a shield like weapon known as a diskarmor at enemies, killing just about anything that moves. You can pull off several combos if you want, but for the most part it's a fairly button mashing affair. You can waggle the Wii Remote as well, but it's something that feels tacked on rather than flowing very well. For the most part, you don't actually need any motion sensor controls. Unless you're going to play in Gladiator Mode, where you must waggle the Wii remote to pull off some attacks. But it quickly becomes repetitive.

Level design also suffers slightly because of issues that shouldn't have been such a big deal, even for a game released previously in 2002. The first being that the camera angles just aren't that good. Navigating the game can sometimes be painful because you can't control the camera.

4.0 out of 5 stars Not what you expect. May 18, 2014

I picked this up because I wanted to beef up my Wii collection, and I loved Rygar on the original NES. So far this game did not disappoint! Admittedly it takes some time getting used to the controls. The Wiimote is not the best way to control this type of game. It looks and acts more like a God of War game than anything else I can think of, but with the Wiimote its easy to get the camera messed up in the wrong spot. Once you get used to it though, its not a problem. The story line is good, gameplay is good, lots of fun, I highly recommend it.

2.0 out of 5 stars This is a 10 year port to the Wii February 12, 2013
By Sid
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I was quite excited to play this game when I first purchased it. I remember when Rygar went to 3D on the Playstation 2 and it was a pretty fun game with some limitations in combat and platforming, but fun.
So when I put in the new Rygar to my disappointment, I realized the only this "new" in this game is that they re-skinned Rygar, keeping the game the exact same from the ps2 version. This had potential...too bad it was just a port.

3.0 out of 5 stars Rygar: The Battle of Argus August 9, 2009
Fun: 3.0 out of 5 stars   
I enjoyed the ability to play in 4 different levels of expertise: Easy, Normal, Hard, Legendary. Rygar is all about fighting enemies. The more you fight & beat the faster you can strengthen your Diskarmors. Searching for items is secondary and many times your find yourself destoying pillars, urns and refuse just because it is there. The story line is a little hokey and somewhat lost in translation I think.

5.0 out of 5 stars don't be mislead...... July 20, 2009
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
this game is based on the PS 2 version....

Rygar is still an excellent and beautiful game... if you are doubting just because you heard something bad, forget it... Rygar is worth your time and money.

Rygar will impress and excite you, just don't expect it to look like a 2009 game...

5 stars, my highest recommendation!

3.0 out of 5 stars Duh! January 21, 2013

The only problem of this game: being a Version, not a Renake, for the Wii of the same PlayStation 2 title. The story is interesting and all, but Koei-Tecmo could hae don too much more and better for this title due Wii's resources. Who knows another company buy/be hired for a new Rygar game or Tecmo-Koei try rebooting this promissing title soon?
