  • Excerpt: As most of you probably know, LucasArts is the gaming arm of Star Wars guru George Lucas, and that means that most of LucasArts? games are Star Wars-related. Not that that?s a bad thing ? the world would be a less happy place without the classic X-Wing combat sims or the masterpiece that is Knights of the Old Republic. But that?s not all LucasArts has been up to.

  • Excerpt: I usually shy away from any game that has a game reviewer's opinion on the cover. This is a long held fear of reviewers from major magazines - they don't get paid to write bad reviews. (Hello GamePro!) However, it was my charge to review the GameCube version of Gladius, so into my console it went. And it hasn't yet come out, even though Mario Kart has been pleading for me to beat the Mirror Mode.

  • Excerpt: LucasArts have once again made one of those games that can keep you on your couch playing for a long time, if you're a turn-based RPG fan of course. Gladius is as a good as it looks! The game takes place in a world of ancient Roman themed gladiator stadiums. This world is at war and everything is settled in ancient gladiator style. The game starts with the selection between two characters.

  • Conclusion: Ingesamt ist LucasArts’ Gladius ein gutes Spiel geworden. Die taktischen Elemente, die euch im Kampf zur Verfügung stehen, sind wirklich erstaunlich. Auch der riesige Umfang (40 Stunden und mehr Spielspaß), sowie zwei verschiedene Storys, und eine gute deutsche Synchronisation sind positiv in Erscheinung getreten. Jedoch sind so einige Dinge negativ erscheinen, welchen den Spielspaß nicht gerade steigern. So erschreckt anfangs die hohe Blockanzahl von 40 Blöcken.
