Votes: 2,557

This game is a dream for fans of Ancient Greece, while not perfect it delivers a truly EPIC RPG adventure, Monsters can be found in the game but are local legends which need discovering so not overused. Both the music and graphics are beautiful. The game hides many Greek tales within quests and side missions. It's only weakness's is its slow to start, some side missions are repetitive and the game is overwhelmingly massive. I have easily sunk over 100 hours in this, with no end in sight. Favourite moment - Finding the Cyclops on "The bay of nobody" and discovering Medusa's lair gave me chills.

28. The Rise of the Argonauts (2008 Video Game)


Jason, a Greek king set out for the quest to seek the Golden Fleece to bring back his wife Alceme from death.

Director: Ed Del Castillo | Stars: Xander Bailey, Susanne Blakeslee, Brian Bloom, Steve Blum

Votes: 116

With a little patience you can find an enjoyable action adventure, The game starts out very basic and slowly uncovers what it has to offer, the simple combat becomes very in depth, switching weapons in real time in the middle of a battle to defeat some foes (I'm looking at you Achilles). While the adventuring isn't open world the story and variation makes up for it. A great twist on the Argonauts adventure, seen as a poor mans God of War but I prefer the combat here. Favourite moment - Defeating Achilles after so many attempts gave me a warm glow inside.

29. Warriors: Legends of Troy (2011 Video Game)


Sangue,vendetta, furia.. Nothing else.. leggend

Director: Mario Azzopardi | Stars: Colin Glazer, Adam MacDonald, Debra McCabe, Mif

Votes: 25

Along the same lines of Dynasty warriors, repetitive but fun, kill a few 100 people, story moves along, kill a few 100 more. I found it fun in short bursts as I wanted to see the story though. Favourite moment - The beach attack on the first level shows off it's epic battle scale.

30. Clash of the Titans (2010 Video Game)

Votes: 73

I really love the title screen, as for the game it's a very basic hack and slash though levels game. nothing bad nothing great, while the 2010 movie is worth a watch this is skippable. Favourite moment - Some of the boss fights mix it up a bit.

31. Titan Quest (2006 Video Game)

Votes: 7,781

God of War series up till the 2018 game (which is Norse) is based on Greek Mythology. it's a visceral and visual hack and slash action game that generally focuses on Kratos's rage and fight against mount Olympus. Epic boss fights and story are worth watching on YouTube even if you don't plan on playing it. Favourite moment - The cinematic boss fights.

Director: Ales Ulm

It was intended to be a massive multiplayer online game, however that was scraped and the game was released as a single player, gameplay wise it plays like most MMO's, click on what you want to attack, gain and use skills and better equipment. It's been left in a dull state, can't really recommend it. Favourite moment - Little stands out, but it often appears in the Steam sale for a quid or less.
