    Assez joli graphiquement ce BTA (nique-les tous) mais ça ne reste qu'un BTA de plus, bourrin et con, pour lobotomisés de la manette. D'ailleurs les manettes ont porté plainte pour harcèlement de leurs boutons qui nuit grandement à leur durée de vie.

    This game really is shit, I have played alot of games like this before, but this game doesn't compare. The voices are crap its unrealistically quick and its button bashing for the fighting, no skill is involved at all. Hint, do not buy this game.

    Im with Tim, this is not a great game. Alright, but the 1 is to bring this ridiculous rating down. Far too hard in places, really takes away from the hack-and-slash mentality. Not a worth buy, no reply value. Fun for the first time only.

    A bit low I know - but have to bring the ridiculous average rating down. This is NOT a great game. It's fun in places, overhard quite often, and gets repetitive very quickly. And don't be fooled by the subtitle - there's NO strategy involved! A rental at best.

  1. PSM Magazine
    The problem with the game, though, is being the only soldier in an army of thousands who's able to do the most basic things - open doors, light fuses, fire arrows. It gets old extremely fast. [Nov 2005, p.76]
  2. Game Informer
    The boss fights are frustrating to the point of idiocy, and are made worse by the annoying checkpoint system... It sure beats the hell out of another "Dynasty Warriors" retreat, though. [Oct 2005, p.119]
  3. Edge Magazine
    It only betrays itself completely once – in a dismally conventional boss battle around halfway through – though at times Spartan threatens to become routine, it never does, thanks to its strong character, handsome looks and sheer, irrepressible verve. [Nov 2005, p.96]
