bad button masher

Nethalar "skinny wizard", Amazon
6 July 2005
  • Summary: If you like mindless action and button mashing, you'll like this. I found the action repetitive. The graphics, so-so. I thought this would be like a gladiator dueling game. It's definitely not. It's roman gladiator (using many out of period weapons) meets bruce lee from that scene in Enter the Dragon where he fights 100 guards. Really lame. Shadow Over Rome looks cooler.

One of Acclaim's Finest

George Rownd, Amazon
7 May 2004
  • Summary: In the past, Acclaim has made some really bad games and some really good games. This happens to be the latter of the two. After reading countless reviews for this game, I decided to give it a try. I found that the problems I had with this game are the same as everyone else, the camera is a little iffy, the game tends to slow down a little when there is a lot of action on the screen, and it's hard to change between enemies when fighting which can be fustrating.

If I could give this -5 stars, I would

Patrick McDougal, Amazon
15 January 2004
  • Summary: This is a horrible, horrible game. I don't know why I purchased it, and if I could feel guilt-free about passing it onto another clueless gamer, I would. As it is this game makes a great coaster, and that's about it. Maybe you could use it for a mirror. Here's why the game is terrible: 1. Graphics are so-so, with the cinematic scenes no different than he game play scenes. Plus, trying to skip pointless graphics and cut scenes is apparently forbidden.

Short and violent

George Rownd, Amazon
27 December 2003
  • Summary: This game has some really good graphics and story. It doesn't last long and the sound is OK. Gameplay is repetative and isn't all that great. Very good rental. If you like the movie, check this out.

Maximus meets Double Dragon. . .

-- "--", Amazon
24 November 2003
  • Summary: Ancient Rome and its barbaric gladiatorial arenas have intrigued scholars of history and laymen alike for countless years. Films like "Sparticus," "Ben Hur," and the more recent "Gladiator" have captured this period, and the phenomenon of Roman gladiators, in exciting form, but video games have only just begun to jump on the bandwagon - which is strange, since the setting lends itself so incredibly well to the medium.

A MUST HAVE FOR CHRISTMAS

George Rownd, Amazon
7 November 2003
  • Summary: I bought this game because IGN said it was a Gory Sleeper Surprise for Christmas and figured I had to buy it. Moreover the screenshots online blew me away. I don't know of any other game that I was able to play right out of the box (no 200 page manual) and just start hacking away! The graphics (lighting) are nothing short of amazing and the kill moves are just about as gory (and cool) as it gets. My only criticism is that I wish there was online play.

Really Looking forward to this

George Rownd, Amazon
3 November 2003
  • Summary: Awesome kills and combat action. Don't trust just one reviewer. Lot's of other good ones out there. Plus, playing as a Gladiator will rock - just like in the movie!
