    Pros: Based on the Starz tv show Spartacus a Gladiator game different classes to choose from with each one having their own customization...........Cons: Online lags, buggy issues, Gold coin charge (you have to pay real money to get a certain amount of coin and the price on the PSN store is so ridiculous) ,no sex with women, odd "information" messages during loading time that may scratchPros: Based on the Starz tv show Spartacus a Gladiator game different classes to choose from with each one having their own customization...........Cons: Online lags, buggy issues, Gold coin charge (you have to pay real money to get a certain amount of coin and the price on the PSN store is so ridiculous) ,no sex with women, odd "information" messages during loading time that may scratch heads, visuals look pasty, can't play the actual people from the show, tutorial mode lack luster, no in-depth customization just the basic stuff, a "three strikes and your out" warning system (meaning if you leave abruptly on many occasions your gladiator that you work so hard on will be removed from the game forever), Spam attacks from enemy NPC and from the online player, no "perk shop" (meaning if you executed a particular gladiator you want that perk but you can't have it so you get rid of it where is the shop that sells these perks as a just in case...nope not in the game at all)

    Final Thoughts: there are just so many con's to this game that makes this one of the worst TV based video games to date

    This game is not worth the space it takes up on you system. It is a total waste of time. The game is virtually broken and does not deserve to be downloaded. Seriously, don't get it. Watch the show. Play something worthwhile, but please don't play this game. Don't say I didn't warn you.

    This game is garbage. It always freezes & if it freeze 3 times during a fight you'll have your character killed. if someone quits online, it freezes & your character dies AUTOMATICALLY. This is just a waste of space & time. Also, it's not my "connections" fault it constantly freezes, its the other players & the servers fault because I've been hearing this happening to other players too. SoThis game is garbage.

So basically you'll just have fun until "your gladiators life is forfeited" which won't be to soon. Please save your self stress & don't download. Expand

    PRO: good graphic, free BAD: few blows and no creativity, need real money to have weapons, bad history, repetitive player introduction Result: ts a waste of time.

    Fun game, but there's one FATAL flaw. Without gold, as others have said, this game is broken. You enter the tier 2 difficulty areas and may do okay for a while, but then you will be fighting with ratings of roughly 130 on average against opponents of 260+. In some cases you can be KO'd in three swings. The crowd favor of opponents is ridiculously high which can mean instant gladiatorFun game, but there's one FATAL flaw. Without gold, as others have said, this game is broken.

In some cases you can be KO'd in three swings. The crowd favor of opponents is ridiculously high which can mean instant gladiator death. Example.. downed CPU without being scratched then CPU stands up with second wind and 0 crowd favor.. hits me 3 times has max favor and kills my gladiator. Let's say you beat a legend and you use your hard earned gold to purchase him.. you try to even the odds with your 275 rating dude only to fight a 370 rating CPU in the same zone. Sure you will win a lot with the legendary guy, but if he dies its another 8 gold to revive him =D the purple quality regular guys also cost gold.. no matter what. The best you can hope to buy with silver are blue name guys. I promise you that no matter how well you have the mechanics down this game is designed to piss you off and force you to pay to win in the end.. very disappointed with what could have been a decent game. It may be free to download, but the game is really just a demo until you dump about $100 in gold on it. Expand

    Si estas buscando un juego plagado de combates monótonos, con controles toscos, gráficos de la generación PS1 (incluyendo sangre y modelados de plastilina), modos de juego idénticos, un online terrible, y todo con una diversión nula (ah, y con una tienda donde te timan para conseguir moneditas doradas!), ya estás tardando en bajarte Spartacus Legends.

    Jogo fraco,até tentei gostar dele...mas é muito cansativo e relativamente repetitivo,os combates são genéricos e superficiais,resumindo um jogo praticamente nulo.

    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]

    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]

    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.
