Gladius 2 Review

Do you have what it takes to survive in the gladiatorial arena? That's the premise of Gladius 2. You're taking on the role of a Roman gladiator in the great arena. Gladius 2 is a browser-based massively multi player online role playing game (MMORPG) so you will be able to battle against actual human players from all over the world.

The arenas didn't just pit human against human. Sometimes the battles were man against beast. Sometimes elaborate weapons were available for the gladiators to use, and group versus group battles were held. There were even naval battles. Fights weren't always fair, either. If you were guilty of a crime, or a political prisoner, the odds might be stacked horribly against you, depending on your crimes, your sentence, or the whims of the officials in charge. Some battles were staged to simulate historic battles or mythical events. If you were chosen for the side that historically lost, you would likely be set up to be slaughtered.

Gladius 2 gives you the opportunity to be a gladiator in the Roman arena. You play through a brief tutorial, and then you will be free to pursue single-player missions against computerized opponents or head to the arena and battle dangerous animals like lions and bears. You earn gold and silver by breaking crates. Gladius 2 has open player versus player (PvP) features-that means other players will openly attack you. If you've already played other MMO games like Seafight, or XBlaster, Gladius 2 will be easy for you. They all share a very similar interface as well as very similar game mechanics. Bear that in mind if you master Gladius 2 and are looking for a new challenge.

This newly introduced MMORPG features action packed battles in historic arenas. It is a mix of 2d and 3d features, and offers a selection of maps and environments in which to do battle. You can choose from one of three gladiators to take into the arena. You have a fair selection of weapons to choose from as well, as you prepare for battle. If you become a premium user and pay for your account, you will get extra options.

The games sounds aren't all that interesting and are actually somewhat annoying, but then I'm no fan of game noises and soundtracks in most cases. It is rare that a game developer puts the same effort into the sound effects as they do for the visuals; storyline and animation, so I tend to turn the sound off unless it is crucial to game play. The graphics are somewhat bland and colorless, which wouldn't bother me too much if it was not intended to be a very visual game.

The missions, overall, were quite satisfying. You must fight animals or complete certain assigned tasks in the arena. I found it somewhat difficult to use the controls and navigate through the menus, although the menus look great.

The combat is real time, and the theme is ancient Roman gladiatorial combat-that makes for a unique MMORPG, even if the game play isn't always as exciting or varied as it could be. There tend to be lots of players online, around 1,500, giving you plenty of battles to choose from.
