I was highly anticipating this game's release before it came out. I'm a great fan of the Creative Assembly's Total War series and felt inclined to buy their stab at a single-player action game.

Overall, this game was worth buying. It wasn't nearly as I expected however. I expected it to be somewhat like Koei's Dynasty Warriors series, which I was once a fan of. It was, though instead of slaughtering thousands of Chinese peasants, you're slaughtering weakly-equipped Roman legionarries (excuse my spelling) as well as Thracian axemen and skeletal warriors, plus many other less-encountered units. The game is essentially the same, except allied soldiers actually attack and you can't downright mindlessly slaughter. Creative Assembly has, of course, thrown in their own variations, which manage to make the game seem original enough.

The gameplay itself varies considerably from level to level, though the purpose is essentially repeated: destroy all enemies, destroy strategic locations, escort special units, etcetera. Even so, this repeated action is replayable, and I find myself playing a level over twice or thrice. It is laced with anachronism, and other parts that may cause Greek historians to chuckle. Such as the classic phrase, 'Return with your shield, or upon it'. Crassus is the leader of the leader of the subjugation of Greece, though they say this is under the rule of Tiberius, which, unless I'm mistaken, was the adopted son of Agustus, a few generations after Crassus. They also have several refferences for the help of the gods, who wouldn't care less if a militarily-oriented Greek city-state fell to an aspiring empire. They also grossly misrepresent the ruins of Troy, but these are all minor issues in the game.

Spartan: Total warrior is an action adventure game made by Sega. The game takes place around 300 B.C. in ancient Greece. The Spartan (the only title given to him), along with his only friends, Castor and Pollux must defend the city of Sparta from the Roman empire.

One might think that this game is merely a hack-and-slash, but there is more depth to the controls and story than a typical game of that genre. Instead of smashing one or two buttons to attack enemies or press switches, there are many combinations of buttons one can push in order to attack one foe, or many. Moving the spartan is done with the left stick and the camera with the right. There is actually a bit of strategy in this game. You can't just run around hacking enemies, they will block. At times The Spartan will have to kick a foe to make him lose the grip on hi shield for a second, giving you the chance to attack with the sword. Strategy is essential if you want to live in this game. I haven't noticed many problems with the camera, it is easily controlled and rarely positions itself at an odd angle. The Spartan can attack a single foe, do a swinging attack to hit several enemies while also clearing the area in front of him, fire a bow and arrow along with some special attacks. One of these special attacks is a rage attack. As The Spartan hits enemies he builds up rage, when the rage meter is about three quarters full, he can do a rage attack. This is done by holding R1 and pushing one of the attack buttons. During a rage attack the game will go into a short slo-mo mode and The Spartan will perform an extra violent attack which usually results in decapitations. The rage attack can also be used with the bow to shoot many arrows very quickly.

Not being a great fan of slash and bash games, I was disapointed to find after I'd bought this game that that was exactly what it was, and not a whole lot more! But within five minutes I was hooked and just couldn't put the controller down. The game maps are cleverly designed with smooth looking graphics (apart from the storyline sequences) and each level has a unique storyline which leads into various nail bitting missions which may involve protecting a large group of prisoners as you bust them out of a Roman camp, or defeating an entire army of Romans whilst dodging giant lazer beams of light from the sky that turns everything in its path to stone! The music doesnt really go with the theme of the game, but its not terrible, and it changes during the dramatic inter-level storyline sequences which involve voice overs from quite a few famous actors. There are plenty of moves to make the fighting more interesting, and the character learns new moves and upgrades weapons as the game progresses. Different enemies later on in the game also keeps the game flowing as you can face gladiators and even zombies. Overall the only thing I found annoying about this game is that sometimes you can find yourself in a situation where you suddenly have to fight a bad guy, and if you dont have enough health to begin with it can be next to impossible. Its also not clear that you can actually save the gave half way through a level just by exiting which was a bit annoying after I'd already done the game! Overall I was pleasantly surprised with the game especially after hearing all the bad reviews, and it takes a good game to impress me.
