Rage of the Gladiator Review

Cheat Code Central
25 May 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
23 May 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.

Rage of the Gladiator - WII - Review

GameZone
18 March 2010
  • Excerpt: Ghostfire Games offers a new twist on the classic boxing simulator with Rage of the Gladiator. The mechanics are fairly familiar, and easy to grasp even if you’re a newcomer. Using the first-person perspective, the player is thrust into the sandals of Gracius, a comically melodramatic aristocrat-turned-brawler who must face a slew of bizarre enemies in the arena.

Expert Review

Nintendo Life
29 May 2010
  • Summary: Rage of the Gladiator remains one of WiiWare's undisputed highlights, and we've been pleasantly surprised to discover that the game is even more alluring in portable form. The pick-up-and-play mentality of the title is better suited to the 3DS, and while it's a shame that the immersive motion controls understandably had to be sacrificed in this port, after an hour or so you won't miss them at all.
