Great turn-based strategy and little else.

Findedeux, Amazon

  • 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 context of skills become less and less relevant as the game goes on.

Fun but gets boring

  • 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. You can buy new move that do alot of damage but you can use weak moves and still win because its easy. The end of the game is hard but its too hard. When you first play the game it will be alot of fun but once you beat it or played it alot, it gets very boring.

The title rhymes with Tedious

  • Summary: Gladius is a Gladiator-like PlayStation 2 game developed by LucasArts. The premise of the great seemed like a winning combination of role playing elements and combat. The end result was a little boring and repetitive. Gladius is not that bad of a game - just time consuming. Before you can really be able to play the game, you will spend about an hour going through an extensive training session that teaches you how to play.

Good Graphics, really slow play.

  • Summary: I rented this game when it first came out. It is a decent RPG. The problem that I had with it is that all the arena look exaxtly alike. There is very little variation from town to town within the game. Although the character development is a bit tedious it is very in depth. I love RPG's for the story aspect. This one has a pretty good story. Overall, I would say that it is OK. It certainly is not a Knights of the Old republic or a Final Fantasy.

Slow play

  • Summary: Maybe it's just me but I felt like the battles were a bit to slow to me. There is a very nice story line in this game no matter which character you choose to start with, but it almost seems like more thought was put into the story than in the method of combat. Don't get me wrong I like the game I just think the combat could have been done diffrently to help give it the excitement it was appearently ment to have.

Per chi ha apprezzato il film "Il Gladiatore"

CapitanRon, Ciao
3 March 2008
  • Excerpt: Giocando a Gladius vi troverete a combattere in centinaia di arene diverse, con avversari sempre più intelligenti che vi daranno non poco filo da torcere. Il sistema di combattimento è a turni, un spasso per gli appasionati dei final fantasy! Inizierete c ...
  • Pros: Vi immergerete per un po' in quell'atmosfera romana in stile "Il gladiatore"
  • Cons: Dopo un po' risulta monotono .  .  .
