Set in ancient Rome, your character has been chosen by the gods to fight anyone who gets in your way to win back the throne of the Roman Empire that was stolen from the people.
Even then, its impossible to miss a jump, thus taking some fun out of the game. As you go along on your journey, you will come across challenges which will unlock special features like new items that can be found, or the most useful, yet most frustrating one: the fight gauge. The more unique strings of attacks you do, the more the fight gauge goes up, as does the power of your attacks. But the developers also decided to put a field of multicolored nonsense rotating around your character when his fight gauge is built up. This is very frustrating, especially in heavy combat, because it makes it VERY hard to see your character and the enemies very close to you.
Overall, the way it plays is lot like a Gauntlet rip-off, except for one major thing: Gladiator is only ONE Player! This game would have been a LOT more fun if they would have added the ability to play with friends. The only other major problem this game has is lack of a difficulty setting. Experts in hack and slash fighting games will find this game very easy.
The only control you have over the camera is zooming in and out, thats it. One would figure that since theres no control over the camera, it would stay the same most of the time right? Nope, youre not that lucky. The camera is always changing; making the game feel like a Hollywood movie, but really affecting your game play.
When listening, it makes you feel like youre watching Julius Caesar because it sounds like it should. Environmental sounds are pretty good too. The sound of wind rustling the grass, and the waves crashing against the beach all sound very good.
Hisako is hands-down one of the most "original" looking new characters ever to be introduced to the Killer Instinct franchise in both looks and gameplay, and it looks like shes bringing an old favorite along with her (check the end of the video).
Xbox One Preview members are now getting a taste of whats due to arrive for everyone in April, including the long-awaited arrival of voice messaging to the Xbox One platform (which will be cross-compatible with Xbox 360 voice messaging).
Cant speak for how good the film will be, but this is still probably one of the coolest (and genre-appropriate) film-game crossovers ever. You dont need to own Forza Horizon 2 to play, and its FREE to download until April 10th. So get it now!
April 2015 will definitely go down as one of the best GwG offerings of all time. Not only will Xbox One owners be getting Child of Light and Pool Nation FX, but Xbox 360 owners will be getting FOUR games, including GoW Judgment and AC4 Black Flag!!!
