    Spartacus Legends is a free-2-play that deserves attention for a number of interesting features, such as the management phase and a certain tension attributed to the fact that you may lose your gladiator.

    It is theoretically enjoyable, but there are some issues, mostly online related, that spoil all the fun. We encourage you to give it a try, since it has a lot of entertainment to offer.

    Spartacus Legends has an interesting combat system and character progression, but fails with its servers problems, poor netcode and some graphics issues.

    Better exploitation of the license would allow Spartacus Legends of becoming a title unavoidable at least for fans of the TV series.

    Legends has missed the point of the business model entirely, giving unfortunate players a choice of grinding through shallow, unfulfilling and downright ugly combat, or forking out substantial amounts of real money to bypass said mediocrity. [Sept 2013, p.71]

    Most free to play games are engineered for compulsive play, but Spartacus Legends is about as addictive as swallowing sand. Thumbs down.

    It's a bad game compromised further by awkward monetisation. [Issue#101, p.84]

    Great for fans of the series...if the bugs and server issues get fixed. A patch is vital to this game being more than mediocre. I would haveGreat for fans of the series...if the bugs and server issues get fixed. A patch is vital to this game being more than mediocre. I would have paid the 60 bucks for a smooth and complete Spartacus fighter. Instead, the developers urge players to go to the bank and pay 150 bucks for gold coins for the full game experience. This game as of now is not worth one dollar as it is nearly impossible to get on the servers. I am a die-hard Spartacus fan and a so-so fighter fan, so this game should be perfect for me. But will it get fixed? If it does and you can look past the pay scheme and the somewhat clunky fighter responses, this Tribute to all things gladiator might be just what the summer ordered. Right now, I think I will play some borderlands 2 or injustice, at least until the servers get fixed. I give the game a 8 based on it getting fixed. No fix, this game gets a 3. Expand

For instance, me and all of my friends want to duel each other, but we can't we always end up fighting other players. Maybe add a "Private Match" area where you can duel friends. Maybe make the Spectacula section of the city give double the Fame it does, cause getting only 750 Fame each fight at my level doesn't do much at all.

    Also, what would be appreciated is 2 other things 1: A Silver-to-Gold conversion system. 10,000 Silver to get 1 Gold piece. I got over 800,000 Silver(Maybe over 900,000) but I can't use it I've bought nearly everything I could with Silver. Also, you should be able to bulk up your character by buying some extra Health and Defense for Silver OR Gold after so much. For the first extra 20 Health and 20 Defense it's 25,000 Silver for 1 stat on one of them so spending 100,000 silver will give you +4 health or +4 defense or mix it around. And you can get up to +10% extra Damage from that for 25,000 Silver for +1%. After that it starts to cost Gold. The MAX stats you can buy is +50 Health, +50 Defense and +25% Damage. This makes people USE all their cash, instead of building it up and wasting it. Maybe add a arena where people can go to get MASSIVE amounts of Silver and Fame, but it's a level 25+ only area. It'll give up to DOUBLE the Silver Insulae gives(The Pits), and up to 50% more Fame than Spectacula gives.

    Also, please FIX the servers. It's laggy and glitchy, and easy to Hack/Glitch it. Make each different section of the game give different types of Perks as well. Maybe let us buy an extra Perk slot for a character(If you lose him so does the extra perk)for either 100,000 Silver or 25 Gold for it. You can choose between both for it. I did this survey with roughly 75 different players on Spartacus Legends. ALL of them agreed with me on getting these type of updates. We ALL at least want a Silver-to-Gold Conversion system AND Private Matches. ALSO some of us want a "FULL Fledged Arena fight" where UP TO 10 people fight at once in EITHER a Free-For-All OR a Team-Deathmatch. They can choose between the 2 but it's NOT Legends Mode, it's the "Arena Mode" for that. You can do survival against Tigers and Bears on there alone, or side-by-side with a friend or 2(Up to 4 people at once working together in Survival). This would make it interesting AND Hard. Survival should give you specialty gear as well. Survive 5 rounds, you get a "Common" Item in compairison to your gladiator. You can ask it if you want an Armor-type specialty item, or a weapon, or a Perk. If you survive to round 10 it's an 'Uncommon" one(AKA Green Name). "Rare" is a Blue one at round 15+ survival. At 20+ is a Super Rare(I call it a Legionary) weapon/Armor at 25+ and at round 30+ is a Legendary.

    Everyone I ask wants a LOT of this added into the game. If you want to ask my friends, you can just contact my triston8080800 account on the Xbox LIVE and I'll prove it.

Unfortunately, it's not as good as I thought it would be. Combat's decent enough, and building up a roster of gladiators with different weapons and equipment is an interesting concept, but connection problems (it is a free-to-play title, after all) hurt this game in the long run. You'll be spending more time dealing with server maintenance than actually playing the game. Mediocre graphics, sub-par sounds and repetitive fights don't help matters. While Primus Fights offer perks, they do little to offset the repetitive fights, and weapon restrictions don't help either. And of course, the much-maligned microtransaction favor pay-to-win gear over simple cosmetic choices like in Defiance. If you're looking for a good (I use that term lightly) free-to-play game on the 360, go with Ascend: Hand of Kul. It may have its flaws, but they're not nearly as bad as this game's. Expand

    Glad it was free download, would not have even paid £0.69 for it if it was an app.

Is that what we are going to come to expect when free hand helds get ported to consoles? Expand
