  • Summary: In the action packed 300: March to Glory, players take on the role of King Leonidas, who leads the brave 300 Spartans against Xerxes and his massive Persian army. The player, as Leonidas, uses his sword, spear and shield and the power of the soldiers in a battle to determine the very fate of western civilization. 300: March to Glory is a visceral experience focused on action and combat, allowing the player to fight both solo and in a phalanx alongside his fellow Spartans.

  1. Somewhat reminiscent of Sega's tragically overlooked "Spartan: Total Warrior", 300 is similarly diverse but much faster paced and brutal. [Apr 2007, p.56]
  2. I enjoyed 300: March to Glory because of its relative simplicity.
  3. It's a simplistic hack-and-slash that tends to get painfully repetitive, but 300: March to Glory has its moments.
  4. Standard fare in the world of licensed games. With lackluster levels, imbalanced controls, and below-par graphics, 300:March to Glory does not seem to be a good representation of the subject matter upon which it was based.
  5. 300 the video game could have been a lot worse for sure, but it's a shame that it couldn't have aped the film and comic's more contemporary, slick and glossy finish.
  6. This game version sadly falls in the worst of all three media releases behind the graphic novel, and motion picture.
  7. Truly a generic licensed game gone wrong.

    The people that give this low scores are the people that never beat it. Once you beat this game, like John E said, you keep everything the second time around, where you kill guys in a hit or 2 as apposed to 2 combos, with lots more dismemberment and decapitation, that should have been put in on the first run. the phalanx formation is lame at best, but that is just a small part, and once you get it, is not particularly difficult to win. So if you have the patience to beat this game the first time, you will be pleasantly surprised the second time. Expand

    I can see why people didnt like this game. I personally liked it, even if it wasnt very well dont or polished. Its good fun. I wasnt expecting much, so maybe thats part of it. I liked learning cool moves and they make it seem unscripted but i feel like i did that on my own. Sometimes the bosses are very challenging while the normal enemies are too easy, but overall, not for everyone. this review can be used for the movie, same idea. Expand

    It was frustrating at times building up the power meter during boss battles that required blood drunk to do damage, and sometimes using the spear was frustrating. What has been most fun, however, is replaying the game after beating it once, b/c all the good equipment and combos you bought can be used from the beginning, and you wreak total havoc with your guy the second time through with all the special moves.

    A good game, quite good graphics and not a bad story. You never at any point during gameplay have more than 2 body guards with you. Its a good game, very very easy at some points, and very very hard at other points. Takes around 10 hours to complete and it isnt too bad a game. Expand

    The problem with this is that is not actually bad but it's not that great neither. The Grafix are not the best and reminds me of a ps1 game, the sound is ok. You can quite happely play it for a few hours until the boring repetitiveness sinks in and you just can't be bothered anymore. If you want a decent fighting game, then go for the warriors instead. Much better. Expand

    TERRIBLE game, a real shame as this could have been brilliant, the whole thing is just amazingly let down by tedious monotonous gameplay, graphics and story...yes I'm not terribly convinced by the film either, but thats another story, the only thing that lifts this game above the ZERO mark is the lovely music score that has made it into the game also... Not recommended, go out and buy the music CD instead. Expand

    Horrible. It's slow, it's ugly, it's not a candle on Spartan : Total Warrior. The phalanx sections are the worst thing ever devised by the gaming mind, including such amazing moves as 'stab' and 'over-head stab' and the amazing command bar which, if it breaks, the phalanx shatters. A fantastic idea one might think until they see it go down to zero and all you get is the message 'You die, retry?'. What is this, a text-based adventure from the 80s? For a film which prided itself on it's production values, the game is a horrible abortion of an action title that would have been mocked if released on the Atari Jaguar, let alone the PSP... Expand
