Taking place on an island in the Mediterranean Sea called Argus, Rygar: The Legendary Adventure tells the tale of a noble warrior determined to save the Princess Harmonia and bring the island of Argus back to a state of peace. For his contribution and bravery during the Great Sea Battle, which ultimately brought victory to Argus, Rygar was honored by Princess Harmonia in a magnificent ceremony. During the celebration, ravenous monsters called Titans emerged from the land, destroying Rygar's homeland and abducting his beloved princess.

"Rygar: The Legendary Adventure," sequel to the classic Nintendo side-scroller, "Rygar," casts you as, well, Rygar (in at least one of his aliases), and trades its earlier setting for one that is supposedly based on Greek mythology - though elements of Greek and Roman mythologies are used, albeit inaccurately, during the course of the game. In another nod to the nonsensical, Rygar is supposedly the greatest swordsman in the land, but instead of a sword he employs a weapon called a Diskarmor, which is essentially a bladed shield lashed to the end of a whipping chain (and resembles a deadly yo-yo). The plotline is very convoluted in an entertaining anime style, and essentially boils down to "good guy slaying bad guy to rescue kidnapped princess," with some twists along the way.
The gameplay is so bloody fun, though, that any gaping holes in the narrative are easy to overlook. Rygar, as the playable character, is a strange amalgam of Indiana Jones and the guy from "Onimusha." In fact, Rygar plays very much like "Onimusha," and even the interface is similar. Those familiar with that game will be right at home here - but they should be pleased to discover that Rygar offers a beautiful 3D engine, a more intuitive combat system, and considerably less frustrating camera angles. Add top-of-the-line production values to the mix, and you've got yourself a standout game for the PS2.
Speaking of those production values, the music is nearly as good (and sometimes better) than what you might hear accompanying a big budget Hollywood feature. The sound effects are noteworthy as well, and provide the appropriate ambience. Best of all, though, are the graphics, which are easily some of the finest yet employed in a Playstation 2 title.

I must first start off this review by saying that I genuinly had a lot of fun playing Rygar on PS2. This sequal to the original NES classic holds up well in some departments, and fails in others, but nothing that would keep this game from well, being any less fun to play.
Now let's start with the goods: The graphics. Yes, the graphics have to be the number 1 thing to mention first because they have got to be probably the most amazing things I've seen in a video game. Now, if you play this you may disagree with me because a lot of the graphics seem more "fantasy" oriented then in a game like Metal Gear Solid, but talking in that point of view I stick with my previous statement. Rygar is created with the upmost detail and his movements flow very well, offering plenty of realism. The levels are monumental, everthing from shadows, to different auras of light are absolutely flawless and breathtaking. I swear some of the levels were just so vast and beautiful I couldn't help but just stare and say "WHOOOOAHHH!" This makes exploration in the game very fun. The controls in the game are also very crisp, responsive and variable. Using your diskarmor (you can knab 3 kinds) you will hack and slash you way through levels being able to use different combo's of moves to destroy your opponents. The diskarmor is truly one of the best and most fun weapons you will use in any video game available today. And third, the soundtrack consists of a very creative and enjoyable symphonic orchestrial type music almost to be able to match wits with Castlevania on PS1. Now, there are other things that make up a good game, like story, challenge, and creativity. This is where Rygar falls.
When it comes to a good story, Rygar is pretty basic but still very tolerable.

I had low expectations for Rygar. After all, my only contact with the game was when it was an extremely difficult side-scroller in the arcades. Sure, Rygar's concept was cool - a barbarian who throws a Yo-yo of Death (okay, it's called Diskarmor, but you get the idea). What's not to like?
Rygar: The Legendary Adventure changed my perceptions of what Rygar was about. Rygar was reimagined as a Greek tale, much the same way that Link was reimagined as a Celtic hero. Being an avid role-player, I appreciated the change.
But there's a lot more to Rygar than just throwing a shield at weird caterpillars. The realm is firmly (if rather inaccurately) rooted in Greek mythology. Echidna, Typhon, Minotaur, Centaur, Sphinx, Cretus, Greek gods...the whole gang is here. And the settings are beautiful - backgrounds look and feel like Greek landscapes and vistas. Even better, Rygar is encouraged to destroy everything in sight and his efforts are rewarded by the massive collapse of pillars, statues, and caverns. It's like Classical graffiti. Unlike Superman: Shadow of Apokolips, you actually feel as if you're hitting hard things when you hit them with your Diskarmor. The Diskarmor sparks and bounces as it hits solid rock.
The princess you have to rescue is a spitting image of Britney Spears. Depending on your opinion of Britney, that's a good or bad thing.
The game revels in its beautiful levels, giving Rygar ample opportunity to explore it all. The Temple of Poseidonia is especially breathtaking, with sparkling waterfalls and glowing seashells. Equally impressive are the Skies of Arcadia, where Rygar must do battle miles above the earth and clouds. Fortunately, if you fall off you don't die but rather start over at the nearest large floating island.
