A simple SRPG that only gets better the further you get
10 March 2011
Excerpt: I bought this game thinking it was a take on the hack n slash genre but when putting it into my console, 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 win fights. Like with most strategy RPGS, you have different classes you can send out to fight and every class has a weakness and a strength.
Summary: This is without doubt the most enjoyable game I have played on the XBox. Many titans of the gaming world have come and gone (Halo, KotoR, etc) but its still with a spring in my step and a song in my heart that I reach for Gladius. Briefly its is the tale of a travelling school of Gladiators and their quest to reach the High Tournaments (think Gladitor, they've even thrown in a token Oliver Reed-esque guidance character).
Summary: this is a game that kept me going for weeks and one that i still enjoy playing. it's so addicting that even though i had things to do i couldn't leave my Xbox and just kept going. If you like a game that makes you think, with a hell of a story, lots of fighting, neverending tournaments this is your game. Just trying to evolve your caracters can take forever so i loved it hope you like too.
