    Shiny but lacks substance.

    I started the game open minded and got a semi-disappointing letdown. The campaigns are a nice way to play but as soon as I tested the multiplayer I was saddened by it all. To start with, the game is slow to begin and ... Read Full Review

What Gamespot Users have to say about Ancient Wars: Sparta

  • Rating:7

    Could have been so much better, but worth a shot.

    Ancient Wars Sparta is a basic nothing special RTS. It offers nothing new and nothing to keep you playing. By the time the first short campaign is over the thought of starting another even with a different faction doing ... Read Full Review

    OK!!!

    This is one of the first games I bought without reading or watching a review! It was purely on the title (I had just watched 300 at the time!!!). Was a little disappointed when I saw the initial graphics - below the bar ... Read Full Review

    Disspointing, could have been so much more

    Ancient Wars Sparta offers the user an attractive RTS, with good detail levels, plenty of content and a smooth, playable interface. However, it does get many basic things wrong. The Good : Ncie graphics, detailed and ... Read Full Review

    Gamespot Review is pretty much on the money, except the reviewer missed one interesting aspect...

    Yes, as the Gamespot reviewer says, this is a pretty standard RTS, and the difficulty is set way too high... but one thing that helps this game stand out, is the weapons. No, the weapons are relatively normal, except th... Read Full Review

    God I am so disappointed.

    I cannot even express how utterly disgraceful this game is. One hell of a game concept, but in NO way was the idea carried any further than that. Its WAY too short, only 3 different peoples to use and only 7 missions ap... Read Full Review

    Ancient Wars Sparta is a really good game that I recommend to everyone.

    It's a really good game and when I'm playing it , I have really good time. I think it's one of the best 2007 RTS games. It's also a well informative game because it is about the ancient history of Greece.There are thre... Read Full Review

    A unique RTS game with average gameplay and great graphics.

    When I first heard about Ancient Wars: Sparta, I was very excited, but I also knew what to expect. Sparta is an RTS game with a unique story and a few neat features (such as the ability to pick up enemy weapons and captu... Read Full Review

    Great game. A few problems that can be overcome.

    Good game that has great potential but underrated by reviewers who spend very little time to enjoy the good things. I do agree that units are too expensive (Can be changed with a patch) and gold distribution is poor but ... Read Full Review

    New style of RTS

    This game has had many bad reviews, but I ask, why? People have been saying that it is just like any other RTS... isn't C&C3 more like any other normal RTS? This game is not like any other, it is unique. There is a ... Read Full Review

    Bad classic RTS.

    I would advice you to hide from this game. Is not very bad, but is a common game, you played a hundred times this type of rts, search for resources 2 hours and build an army, and you`ll lose it in 5 minutes. This looks l... Read Full Review
