Turn Based Combat Gladiator Style. Woot!

Mark Brockman, Amazon
31 January 2005
  • Summary: This game is turn based combat. If you don't know what that means, you may not like it, ok. However, if you think that Front Mission 3 was one of the best games back on the PSone, or Advance Wars is some killer GBA action, then you just might be very pleased with this.

Fun for awhile, but the lack of difficulty gets old quick

  • Summary: I have to admit, when I stated playing the game, I enjoyed it very much. At about the halfway point, I started getting irritated and now I am playing just to get to the end. There is minimal story, which is fine, especially since I just finished Xenosaga and the last thing I want is a lot of clips.

"Wonderfully and fearfully made"

  • Summary: There are few enough strategy games for PS2, and this one is hugely addictive if you like turn-based battle gaming. I may have played this game more than any other! But, ... but, but, but, ... Part of that is that it takes such a long time to play this game....

  • Summary: I've been playing Gladius for a little over a week now, and when I first began playing I could not put the controller down, after turning the game off last night I have not been able to bring myself to turn it back on.

  • Summary: This is one of those games you set the school/work clock ahead on friday to get home early for. The story line is well thoughtout and the graphics/portraits are amazing. Great by that is well worth the money.

Very fun and well done

I See Lines, Amazon

  • Summary: To start, this game is listed as an RPG and while it is most certainly that, it is a turn based RPG, which means that players take turns on the battlefield plotting out their moves, attacks, spells etc. If you've ever played Final Fantasy Tactics on PS1 and liked it, then you will like Gladius.

Fun but gets boring

Amazon
3 July 2004
  • Summary: When you first play the game, it is fun to use your moves, recruit people, and buy weapons and armor. As you play more and more you find yourself getting bored because you use the same moves over and over.

There need to be more games like this

JimboJohnson, Amazon
3 July 2004
  • Summary: This game is great. It may not be for everyone, but I love it and everyone I know who even remotely enjoys strategy games has fun playing it. I own it for the XBox, but I sold my Xbox to get an XBox 360 and the game is not backwards compatible.

  • Summary: let me start off saying that this was an impulse buy. on the back, it had a rating of 9/10 from game informer, and it was made by lucasarts, a company i trust, so i thought, "okay i'll get it." big mistake.

Great turn-based strategy and little else.

Findedeux, Amazon
3 July 2004
  • Summary: I really enjoyed this game for its turn-based strategy. While the strategy here is not as complicated or in-depth as say, Final Fantasy Tactics, it is fun and engaging to play. The only real problem with the strategy is that because of how the leveling up system works, character choices in the...
