Web Site Review

If you haven't tried, then get with it! This site has an interesting take on mythology and was created through flash to give it a smooth animation set up. Your navigator on this site is Hermes, an annoying little god that has a high pitched voice and laughs if your cursor tickles him. From there, you can watch a few of the myths animated, a little different from what you are used to, but mythologically sound. It has a few pronunciation guides as well. There are myth related game, such as the one where you keep Icarus flying high and in the shade as much as possible. There are other little venues to explore. If you are looking for a complete mythology site with every minor deity and their counterpart in Roman mythology, then you'll be sad. If you are looking for a different twist on mythology that can be enjoyed by both young and old, this is it.

Main pro - it is fun!
Main con - wish they had even more myths to explore

I give it 4.5 lightning bolts out of 5.
