Deadly, Only to Itself
23 May 2012
Excerpt: A game based of the hit show Deadliest Warrior seems like a winning formula in itself; pitting the most skilled warriors from history against one another to see who is truly the deadliest. However, either from rushed production or a lack of QA testing, Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat shows nothing but a forgettable fighting franchise that is more of a chore to play than a pleasure.
Review: Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat (Microsoft Xbox 360)
12 May 2012
Excerpt: After being mildly impressed with the series’ original entry, Deadliest Warrior , Pipeworks released a follow-up attempt in 2011. In order to keep up with annual releases, 345 Games has gone back to re-release a disc-based version of both games to entice gamers who haven’t gotten into the series. Picking up Ancient Combat nets gamers both Deadliest Warrior and Deadliest Warrior: Legends , along with bonus content I will get into later.
Conclusion: Overall, Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat is a mixed bag. On one hand, you have a serviceable fighting game that brings an interesting twist to the table. However, the graphics are poor, both games have already been available for a long time, and the addition of six old episodes from season one of the television show create an issue of whether or not this package is worth the $30 dollar MSRP.
Deadliest Warrior Ancient Combat: The Blast Review
4 May 2012
Excerpt: Among Spike TV’s lineup of super-manly shows lies one particular cult classic for the late night crowd. Deadliest Warrior pits some of history’s greatest fighters against each other to see who would win in a “what if?” sort of way. When you strip away the testosterone fueled dialogue and horribly acted “smack talk” it is a really cool premise that is well researched and has some level of historical accuracy.
Deadliest Warrior: Ancient Combat (Xbox 360) Review
13 May 2012
Excerpt: My knowledge of Deadliest Warrior was recently increased when one of my fellow staffers told me how much his kid loved the TV show. I was like “What? It’s a TV Show?” Yep, I am that disconnected from the franchise that it is. Well after doing a bit of research I now have an understanding of what the TV show is about, that being one where historical or contemporary warriors, or historical figures, are pitted against each other with weapons of their time.
