Spartacus Legends game

Free to play game on Xbox Live.  Anybody tried this yet?  I kind of dig it.  It's a basic fighting game but I like the setting and weapons.  I'm into medieval stuff anyway.  Tried a couple of online matches and totally dominated one guy and got dominated by another.   Pretty fun either way.

 

Of course being "free to play" means you can spend real money to buy gold to better outfit your gladiator.  I may drop some money on it since I like it though.

How so?  You have dodges, jukes, rolls, and light/heavy combo's.  It's just as I imagined a gladiator match to look like.

idk, have you played it?

 

the best way to put it would be to say it feels free lol. not very smooth or polished and it's definitely behind the curve in comparison to other fighting games.

yeah i've put about 10 hours into it.  It's not as deep as virtua fighter or soul caliber, but for what it is (free to play), I think it's pretty sweet.  Like I said, it's how I imagine a real gladiator match would go down.  It's also cool that they have different styles (dual swords, dual daggers, sword and shield, trident, and even bare knuckle).  I used to play a ton of fighting games back in the day (Mortal Kombat, Soul Caliber, Tekken, etc.) so I can say I have some experience with these types of games.  Although it's really not fair to compare this game to those for the simple fact that the realism is so much better with Spartacus Legends. 

 

Then again, like I said, I'm a medieval buff and may be biased, but I love the game, even with some of the maddening bugs.
