Gladiator: Sword of Vengeance Review

IGN Entertainment
9 February 2008
  • Conclusion: Gladiator definitely has an intriguing storyline, but the repetitive gameplay and static camera hurts what could have been a much better effort. The game does provide quite a bit of a challenge and does pack a lot of gameplay, but with only one story mode and no multiplayer options there is little replay value when all is said in done.

  • Excerpt: Gladiator: Sword of Vengeance is one of those games that will probably be lost in the crowd because there was not enough hype surrounding its release. This is a shame, because Gladiator is a good game. Not a great game mind you, but certainly better than a lot of the games out there - including some of the ones that do get more than their fair share of prerelease hype.

  • Excerpt: The first time I heard about Romans was in fifth grade, when they were building things like aqueducts, coliseums and ionic columns.  Maybe that's the reason why, to date, the Roman Empire has been portrayed primarily in civic-minded games such as the Age of Empires II expansion pack, Civilization and other titles for the closet megalomaniac.

Gladiator is set in Ancient Rome in a time where the empire is in turmoil and all of the gladiators are going to die a bloody death entertaining the masses. You play Invictus Thrax, a Roman who was born into slavery and later became the greatest gladiator in the history of Rome.

  • Conclusion: Los gladiadores del Imperio Romano son los protagonistas de esta aventura épica en la que se pondrán a prueba tanto vuestras habilidades en el manejo del mando de Xbox como vuestras convicciones morales e ideológicas a la hora de perdonar o no la vida de vuestros contrincantes… En el año 106 a.c. el Imperio Romano está en una angustiosa decadencia.

  • Conclusion: Ansprechend präsentierte antike Metzelorgie mit interessanten Upgrade-Möglichkeiten und lächerlich einfachen Rätseln. Ein paar kleine Probleme im Bereich der Steuerung hätten vor dem Release lieber ausgemerzt werden sollen.
