Summary: Spartan was a game that was under-appreciated. While It's Graphics were a Sad PS2 port, the story was very well written. If You like fighting tons of people a la Dynasty Warriors, but with a better story, then this is the Game for You. This game is one that should be in alot of people's collections.
Summary: is the absurd storyline. The game mixes actual historic figures (such as Crassus, Tiberius, and Sejanus) with mythical ones (such as Castor, Pollux, and Medusa) without much regard to historical fact. This would be fine except that I have come to expect a lot more from CA. The game should be entitled Spartan: Total Anachronism. I would gladly overlook that fact if the game was, erm, actually fun to play.
Conclusion: This is a pretty darn good game! With screaming allies, beheaded enemies, and really, really hard bosses, you could say that this is one darn good game! You take control of a Spartan warrior battling for his homeland, which is blessed by the gods. Yeah Yeah, just point us to the Romans so we can get killing! The gameplay.....lets just say it makes LOTR look bad. Really bad. This really isnt hard to get addicted to.
Summary: Previous reviewers have hit most of the major descriptive points: lots of warriors, average graphics, simplistic objectives, etc. But one thing I think needs to be stressed is the *repetitive* nature of this game. You will find yourself seemingly fighting the same battle over and over and over again, sometimes because you died but mostly because there just isn't any variety in the game play.
Summary: This game was so over hyped it even got a behind the scenes show on g4tv. Now I wanted 2 play this game cuz well, I being an xbox owner, wanted a good romp like god of war since I already finished ninja gaiden. This game leaves me feeling; like something is missing... it could have been so much more. Let me give u my reviews.
Summary: The makers of the Total War series have released Spartan: Total Warrior as their venture into the genre of hack and slash games. Spartan sees the player assuming the role of a lone warrior who is fighting in the Spartan army against the invading Roman assault. The game's premise is simple, move from objective to objective while killing TONS of characters. The game can support literally hundreds of characters on screen at once.
Summary: I don't normally review but this game is really underated. I'm 35, an ex-squaddie & love action games, this one is right up there with Star Wars Battlefront 1,2 & Rogue trooper - which is just terrific. Response of the graphics to the controls in Spartan is fantastic - avoiding common gaming problem with loads of opponents on screen i.e. any idiot can get the same result by thrashing the controller. Subsequent levels & story board are good too.
