Colosseum: Road to Freedom
Slavery to freedom
is the name of the game in this hack and slash. You take a piece of
history, twist it a bit and then insert the gamer into the brutality of
the Roman Colosseum.
isnít too much to make of this game, you get to bash other combatants
and beasts and also get some powerups to give you a greater advantage
over the other contestants who also wish to gouge out a piece of you in
order to claw their way through the rankings.
The game gives you
the chance to train your character up and you get to travel a little bit
in order to do so. The main fights take place in the arena and itís
where the smack down happens, which surprisingly enough doesnít get too
boring despite the repetitive nature of it all.
title is pretty good lucky with some good textures built into the title.
The tigers look fantastic and there are some nice realistic touches
built in. Make sure that you donít weigh your character down too much as
weight will make a huge difference to the way that they will move around
the arena so donít make your guy a sitting duck!
during the game involve the ability to find new weapons either on the
field or armory so make sure you keep an eye out for those. The movement
in the game is a little jilted and stiff so be sure that you are happy
to work with that. Another gripe is that you are meant to be able to
battle multiple adversaries at the same time. Iíve got news for you: it
doesnít always work.
All things said and
done, I liked this game despite itís shortcomings. I am a bit of a
sucker for this sort of thing so I would say to the rest of you that it
might even be worth renting first.
