Hi Bryan,
Yeah, in terms of actual game play the battle with Hades was a major disappointment. After you collected all of the special items from the various gods and goddesses you were more powerful than Hades when it came to actual firepower and speed. The hardest part of the battle was defeating his invisibility helmet and once you did that he was a push over. A few hits from the divine sword and he dropped dead freeing the soul of your girl friend from Tartarus. All the same, though, the game was pretty fun. I liked it for its mythology and plotline more than the game play itself. Several of the battles were major letdowns in terms of difficulty, but were made up for in story content and plotline.

Battle of Olympus? Wow I should have been keeping up better with this particular thread. I loved that game. In fact my mom, who used to hate video games with a passion, often used to devote at least a few hours of each evening to that game after I got home from school, sometimes before or after dinner. But we never completed it. We got as far as getting the third Fragment of Love (although I do believe we missed the second because my mom couldn't remember how or where to use the Crystal Eye). That and we never got the Sword of Hephaestos (AKA the Divine Sword), since we could never find his temple. So we never did get to Tartarus to fight Hades. As I understand it though that fight was rather anticlimactic. But I'd love to see a game based on that in audio form. That and my all-time favorite NES game, StarTropics.
