    It would be great fun if this game would work without an gamepad! The game doesn't work without an controller, so if you wanna buy it then make sure you have one!

    While Gladiator has excellent production values, its gameplay is fairly pedestrian compared to some console offerings. However, its style of gameplay is still fairly unique in the PC world, making it oddly compelling in very short bursts. [June 2004, p.80]
  2. Average graphics and sound with repetitive gameplay, and you’re left with a mediocre product. SOV has it's moments, but is otherwise uninspired.
  3. One of the slight problems I had with this game was the difficulty. At many points in this game the difficulty got to be very testing. At times it seems like you are being swarmed by enemies, and some parts may take a lot of practice to get through.
