  1. What Spartan lacks in depth is made good by some top-drawer visuals and satisfying combat. A corking console debut for Creative Assembly. [PSM2]
  2. Mythological hack and slash epic. [Jan 2007, p.106]
  3. A very good beat 'em up adventure with hundreds of simultaneous enemies. Too bad the awful Athens-level is a major pain in the backside. [Oct 2005]
  4. Spartan Total Warrior doesn't remind me of anything before it, which is extremely rare. [Nov p.70]
  5. 90
    Mindless hack-and-whack style gameplay stays hot thanks to interesting objectives. Spartan is constantly throwing new gameplay elements at you.

    When I was younger around 6th or 7th grade. I played this game for a very long time. I might haVE HAD OVER 1000+ HOURS. This and Shadow ofWhen I was younger around 6th or 7th grade. I played this game for a very long time. I might haVE HAD OVER 1000+ HOURS. This and Shadow of Rome.

    I also played and still do play, ALL of the Total War games ever made. Even, "'War Warlord" and Viking. Much love to C.A.

    I trust you'll never release a game in such a mess like you did with Rome: Total War 2 ever again. I hope you've learned your lesson people are mad redeem yourselves.

    Just don't listen to the critics. Buy this game even if you didn't like Dynasty Warriors or GOW!
