    That said, if you can ignore the multiplayer and prevent yourself from using gold unless it's absolutely necessary, Spartacus Legends is a satisfactory free-to-play fighter for what it is. Of course, that's a tall order when the game wants you to spend money on premium currency anywhere and everywhere.

    Spartacus Legends is the kind of game that you keep because it’s fun and you play when everything else has been beat or has gotten old.
  3. You know what we like? Combat that isn't half bad and not having to pay for our games. So us and Spartacus Legends should have been a match made in heaven. Want to know what we do not like? Grinding. And there is plenty of it in this otherwise acceptable game. [September p.91]
  4. God knows why you’d want to invest in this crap, however. A match consists of mashing triangle to overcome an uninspired selection of bland nobodies. Thumbs down, we say. [October 2013, p83]

    Spartacus Legends lacks the production values required to attain top billing, but its solid fighting mechanics and rewarding RPG elements ensure that it's worth a punt. With no entry price, there are definitely worse ways to spend your time than bathing in the blood of your enemies for the sake of fame and glory – just don't expect a spectacle fit for the emperor himself.

    As a free-to-play experiment, it’s fairly successful. When you download Spartacus Legends you get the full package, not just a few morsels of gameplay, with the rest locked behind a pay-wall. In some ways this is one the game’s biggest strengths but it still fails to dispel a number of its other issues.

    If you love the Spartacus show then you are going to love this game. It lets you build up multiple characters to make them the gladiator you want them to be. SO many different armors and weapons make this game worth it. The graphics are really good.. not GREAT but good. You can go to different arenas, fight legendary fighters and more. Everyone is complaining about freezing and all that.. but that happened on the first day when it was buggy. They have patched the game and it works great. Also, who cares if it does freeze once in awhile. ITS FREE! Its worth it to check out and as I said before.. if you loved the show there is no way in hell you are going to not like this game.

    Not sure why this is getting bad reviews. This is a technical and rewarding gladiator experience and unless something drastically changes, this is definitely worth trying out. Full Review »

    i signed up just now because of the false advertisement of this game... i will be here ALOT more to critique new titles which deserve recognition and honest responses. Spartacus holds true to the series and with the rogue-like gameplay, brings the score to an easy 9.0
    Do yourselves a favor and don't pay mind to the angry children giving these low scores. sure, the game was buggy at first, but as a mature human being those bugs will obviously get patched as they have. such critics should be banned for scoring so low, especially when peoples careers are at stake.
    Try the game for yourself. ciao.
