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

L. Hauser, Amazon

  • 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.

Unique, Great Game

J. Snyder, Amazon
3 July 2004
  • Summary: I like this game because it is different. I like the style of gameplay and the unique approach to a fighting game that it takes. Definitely worth adding to your collection if you are a strategy/action nerd and if you like the more unique games on the market.

PS2 vs Xbox Version

  • Summary: I've played and enjoyed this game on both PS2 and Xbox. It's a really fun tactical game a la Final Fantasy Tactics, in terms of board and units with different classes/skills and a leveling structure.

Much Ado About Nothing

  • Summary: Based on the picture on the box cover, I got this game thinking it was based on the movie Gladiator. I thought it would play similar to the Lord of the Rings games, which were fast moving and pretty fun. Wrong!

Enjoyable RPG

  • Summary: I had fun playing Gladius for PS2. The graphics, story, and gameplay were all well-done. I think the voice-acting was a little wooden at times, but it didn't detract significantly from the game experience. The thing that really stands out in the game is the strategic element.

Strategy, role-playing, violence...everything but a plot.

Amazon Customer, Amazon

  • Summary: Actually, my title is misleading. It has a plot. But this isn't what I've come to expect. If, in the beginning of FF7, the narrator explained in overdramatic tones who and what Cloud was, what Sephiroth was planning, and constantly hinted that Aeris was going to die, who would give a rat's rear end...

  • Excerpt: I bought this game thinking it was a take on the hack n slash genre but when putting it into my PS2 was pleasantly surprised to find out it was actually a turn based RPG. Plot: You start off at your family run gladiator school learning the trade to then work your way up to travelling the country to...
  • Pros: Different to the usual gladiator games, easy to learn but hard to master
  • Cons: Other then the mentioned plot, there wasn't enough depth to it
