Summary: The first time I played this game I was hooked. You really do feel like you are in ancient Rome or Greece or even Egypt as you build your own chariot, choose your driver and fighter and fight for the glory against the computer or your friends. It does get a bit old after a while, but that's understandable for any racing game. But after a while of not playing it, you get the urge to play it again, making it a good game.
Summary: I was actually suprised how fun this game is, once you master the controls (I recommend doing the academy/ training classes first before any chariot races). This is definately the game to have when your friends come over, it'll entertain you for hours. One thing I really like is the replay, so when you crash, you can see it at different view, pretty funny at times. This game is definately worth it.
Conclusion: Kind of fun, kind of different, kind of weird. A fighting racing game with two players to control using chariots in ancient rome, well I liked it. It is definitely different than anything else out there, the graphics are a little soft and the audio has a few weak points but the enjoyment factor is high due mostly to the unique content.
Summary: the graphics are a bit of a letdown and gameplay isnt all that good after u have mastered the game in 5 minutes but for some reason this games is fun. cant explain it. its DEFINITELY not worth $50 tho!
Summary: I bought this game yesterday after reading the reviews. I am very pleased with the action and challenges it offers. TRUE, having to control the driver AND warrior is mind-blowing at first, but it makes the game more challenging for a bit until you get the hang of it. My boyfriend and I LOVE playing two player driver/warrior team. It makes the game more exciting and fun, you may also race agianst other player for A bigger two player challenge!
Great way [spend] and hour (or two, sometimes three...)

Summary: If you want a game with a story and in-depth characters, look elsewhere. If you want a game based on getting in there and doing, look no further. The controls are a tad bit difficult right off the bat and controlling the chariot at the higher levels can tend to aggravate the most sedate of players but, the utter fun of the game makes up for it.
