    Rage of the Gladiator remains one of WiiWare's undisputed highlights, and we've been pleasantly surprised to discover that the game is even more alluring in portable form. The pick-up-and-play mentality of the title is better suited to the 3DS, and while it's a shame that the immersive motion controls understandably had to be sacrificed in this port, after an hour or so you won't miss them at all.

    If you skipped out on the original WiiWare release, this version is still an excellent choice. It performs slightly worse than its console counterpart, and fighting the same opponents in each difficulty level can get a bit annoying, but despite those two small complaints, it doesn’t change the fact that it’s still an excellent game in its own right.

    On 3DS eShop, while doing away with the motion controls, it manages to remain the cool one-on-one first-person brawler that it already was on WiiWare and uses the 3D effect marvellously

    Even without real substantively new, Rage of Gladiator is a title recommended to all fans of the genre.
