Rage of the Gladiator Review

Cheat Code Central
12 July 2010
  • Conclusion: This game is a steal; we were shocked to see such a great price point on a title that really does give Punch-Out!! a run for its money. The difficulty is truly unforgiving, so it's not for everyone, but by this point, Punch-Out!! fans know what they're in for. So, download away.

Review: Rage of the Gladiator (Wii)

Diehard GameFAN
27 June 2010
  • Summary: Rage of the Gladiator is one of the better games WiiWare games out there. It takes the Punch-Out!! concept and turns it from a boxing game into a sword and sorcery first person fighter. The story is generic as all get-out, and it’s definitely rough around the edges, but it’s a fun little game that boasts excellent character designs, extremely solid gameplay and has a pretty deep character customization system for a ten dollar game.

  • Conclusion: If you liked Punch-Out!!, Rage of the Gladiator will be your favorite WiiWare purchase... ever. If you've never tried Punch-Out!!, this is a solid, low-cost alternative with personality, and a great way to test your reaction time.

Rage of the Gladiator Review

GamerNode
26 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Imagine you are the prince of a distant land, whose mother and father have both died, and now, for some reason, you are fighting in a Roman-style coliseum against one of the most widely diverse pantheons of poorly rendered bosses to date. There are some obvious character variations from Greek mythology, like a chimera creature and a sea witch, but then you stumble upon the snake charmer, the ninja, the floating eyeballs, the demon, the elderly martial arts master.

Rage Of The Gladiator

Hardcore Gamer
22 March 2010
  • Summary: When Rage of the Gladiator was revealed several months ago, a unanimous reaction sprang from nearly every gamer: it’s Punch-Out!! in the age of gladiators! Truth be told, there is no better way to describe Rage of the Gladiator . Much like Punch-Out!! , players make their way through several opponents with increasing difficulty by memorizing patterns, dodging, and attacking their weaknesses.

Can This Punch-Out Contender Challenge The Champ?

Game Informer
15 March 2010
  • Conclusion: Concept: Replace boxing gloves with swords and sorcery Graphics: Impressive for a downloadable WiiWare game Sound: Enemies repeat the same generic threatening phrases over and over Playability: The Wii MotionPlus controls can’t top the classic NES-style sideways remote option Entertainment: While not perfect, this will scratch that Punch-Out itch Replay: Moderate

Expert Review

Nintendo Life
11 July 2010
  • Summary: Rage of the Gladiator is the kind of WiiWare game we'd like to see more often, with excellent control, great design and bags of fun. All three control schemes are perfectly usable and whilst we're sure there are many traditionalists who will stick to the digital controls, we highly rate the MotionPlus implementation which features one-time calibration (no pointer clicking required between matches) and a pretty good workout besides.
