Introduction





What is Rage of the Gladiator

Rage of the Gladiator was a WiiWare game that came out in 2010, it has since been re-released on iOS and 3DS with updated graphics. I’m not going to skirt around the issue, this game is Punch-Out!! with a D&D skin. The game also came out only a year after the amazing Punch-Out!! Wii so it has some similarities and differences to its predecessor, for better or worse. It does a number of things correctly but also does a number of things wrong. There are a number of fundamental flaws in this game and I will be pointing them out as we go along, however I don’t feel it’s enough to make it a horrible game.

Ground rule, NO SPOILERS this game does some cool things, please do not spoil them. Videos will be posted on Sunday and Thursdays. If you’d like to see something that I didn’t point out or go over feel free to ask. Also there may be some streams of the game at certain points, for things that would be easier in that format then a standard video.
