  • Excerpt: With all of the theatrics and history of gladiatorial combat, it was only a matter of time before a trend would start for the genre. Following closely behind Capcom’s Shadow of Rome, Koei, the masters of historical retellings through the video game medium, bring us Colosseum: Road to Freedom. While wrought with its own shortcomings and tedious hack-n-slash gameplay, there is at least a little bit of good here that may sway a rental if anything.

Colosseum: Road to Freedom PS2 Review

  • Excerpt: Colosseum: Road to Freedom is a game whereby you play the role of a Gladiator, trapped into slavery and must fight to earn money to buy his own freedom. For the gamer, replace the word fight with the word work, and we have this game summed up nicely. It’s unfortunate because the setting and the ideas presented are good enough, they are just under developed and mislead.

  • Conclusion: Overall… I had a feeling this might be a hidden gem. The fights and RPG elements are quite good, but it’s a game that the more I play the more disappointed I get. Definitely a game that falls into the category of ‘could have been better’; hopefully there will be a sequel that will improve things.
  • Pros: RPG elements, Gladiatorial battles are cool
  • Cons: Dumb AI, Rubbish voiceovers, No two player mode, Lack of blood

  • Conclusion: Deze Colusseum: Road to freedom scoort over de hele lijn matig tot zwak. Hoewel de game enkele leuke elementen bevat, heb je als gamer te veel last van de lange lijst aan ernstige minpunten en mankementen. Wees voorzichtig wanneer je deze game in huis wil halen, je zou er wel eens een slecht gevoel en een wrange nasmaak aan over kunnen houden.
  • Pros: Originele RPG-actie mix Overzichtelijke besturing
  • Cons: Grafisch zwak Hersenloze buttonbasher Geen replay waarde Keislechte camerabesturing Frusterende gameplay
