Gladiator | Mobile
“My name is Maximus Decimus Meridius, commander of the Armies of the North, General of the Felix Legions, loyal servant to the true emperor, Marcus Aurelius. Father to a murdered son, husband to a murdered wife. And I will have my vengeance in this life or the next” ….do you remember these lines? Yes that was Russel Crowe from the Oscar winning movie, The Gladiator! While that movie is ageless and will always have a place in our heart we all thought that it was over. But, it is not! On your smartphones and handhelds, Maximus is back to raise hell once again and his fate depends on how good you are. Gladiator The Mobile Game combines heart pounding emblem of harmony and music from the age of Mozart and with today’s most sophisticated, state-of-the-art graphic details on your symbian S60 and S40 Nokia and Sony Ericsson mobile computing handheld devices.
The game serves you with nine individual characters who are adopted straight from actual movie. They each possess unique moves which are their specialty and they each have a weapon of their choice. Every time you hit your opponent with a death hard strike, the blood spills out from him and it simply looks like that the movie is running on your cell phone’s screen while you are the director. This high definition 3D mobile phone game ensures the very best of game engine that really have an impressive all over performance. The camera view during the game play is 360 degree, meaning you can actually rotate the entire screen the way you see fit for you smartphones. Action games are always well respected in the Nokia software market and this one is no different.
The control set up is really simple and straightforward and it should not take you more than two or three straight fights before you get a good hold of the special moves for this mobile java game. There is a nice “lifeline” bar which reduces every time you are being hit by the enemy and it takes quite a while to actually die in this game. The gameplay becomes more and more difficult with every stage you advance to and odds will stack up against you. I know that you will be the Spaniard in the game for obvious reasons but what if you could face another gladiator of the same caliber in the Coliseum of Rome? Will that make it hard to win for you? Guess what, that is exactly what this Nokia mobile game offers to you.
Multiplayer! Yes, with your latest camera phones A2DP bluetooth switched on you can play against your friends and destroy him for good! The multiplayer feature is really one hell of an addition to this game and surely will be best used on N-gage and N-Series multimedia computers or cell phones. The game play is not affected in any way when you switch on this feature and since the size of this game is not really huge, you can be sure that your phone will run it smoothly. You can choose to play in three different modes including a quick fight, a career mode and the most exciting survival mode. In quick play you can simply pick an opponent, no matter who or how difficult they are and fight them straight without any delay.
Not really the best part of this symbian 3rd edition game is the career mode though and to be frank it is quite easy after you have played it two or three times. The story you are given is exactly a copy of the feature movie however the dialouges are really well thought of. They are quite compelling and is what made this mobile game really stand out.
The best and most hard to play is the survival mode where you are given only one shot to defeat all of the remaining gladiators. When you finish one, the next one pops up with fresh energy pumping in their vein while your fatigue remains still the same. The more you progress the more impossible it becomes to defeat the opponents and before you reach to Commodus. All in all, the survival mode is really the most coolest part of this game and although it is hard to play well in that mode, but it is surely worth it. After all, to be the man you have to beat the men! 😉
With time and progression you will be able to adapt the best possible moves and tricks. You also have the option to learn how t dodge which really will come handy when you are playing the Survival mode. The game is truly amazing and quite compelling and anyone who have seen the movie will be an instant fan of the game for sure. Even those of you who haven’t, I am sure you will still like it even if for the graphics, sound and overall gameplay. Batman Mobile: The Dark Knight was not anything like this one even though just like this one, Dark Knight was also a movie based cell phones game.
