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.
