About

Age of Gladiators II: Rome is a single-player strategy game set in the twilight of the ancient Roman Republic; a violent and unpredictable time when gladiatorial games were nearing the height of their popularity.

Hire scouts to scour the continent for potential prospects – once you have recruited your gladiators, you will need to manage their morale and personality while equipping them for battle. Recruit support staff, upgrade your gladiator school, collect bounties, research technologies, partake in side missions, and manage the wealth and reputation of your ludus as it grows each day.

As your fighters win battles and increase in level, it will be up to you to decide how to focus their abilities by spending attribute, weapons, and expertise points. Compete, trade, and interact with other in-game owners as you advance through various cities of the empire before achieving enough fame to compete in the grand coliseum of Rome herself.

Build your story. Build your empire.

Features:
  • Control your gladiators with the new 3D isometric turn-based combat system, where fights can have hundreds of different outcomes. Utilize different combat styles and abilities – employ unique ethnic abilities, salves that increase physical stats, and special equipment such as bandages, stim salts, and more.
  • Construct a ludus to your exact specifications in order to maximize the efficiency of your operation. Hospitals, sparring mats, barracks, armories, workshops, and more.
  • Gladiators are born with their own dynamically generated physical attributes, classes, and personalities. It is up to you to shape your gladiator into the most proficient killing machine possible.
  • As your gladiators level up, they gain points to spend on their attributes, weapons training, and expertise. Expertise allows you to build and customize your fighter according to their appropriate strengths. Weapons training allows you to specialize your gladiator with a specific weapon. The physicality of your gladiators will increase or decrease with age, depending on if they are in their prime or declining.
  • Hire trainers to help your gladiators level faster, doctors to keep them healthy, scouts to find new fighters, and blacksmiths to improve weapons and armor.
  • Manage your gladiators carefully – their morale, greed, injuries, fatigue, weapons training, and more must be taken into account before sending them to battle.
  • As your gladiators gain glory from battle, they will become more widely recognized and adored by the crowds. Win enough battles and they may even get voted into the pantheon of heroes after they retire (or die).
  • Become a mogul outside of the arena. Purchase property for fame or businesses through which to further increase your fame across the empire.
  • Rob caravans, guard wealthy land owners, assassinate your debt holders and more with the proactive mission system. Increase the odds of success by sending reliable gladiators on the mission as well. Lawfully aligned gladiators will only partake lawful missions, while criminally-inclined gladiators will assist in unlawful activities.
  • Engage in five different branches of research: combat, medical, weapons, armor, and scouting.
  • Search for deals on weapons, armor, special equipment, and loans on the marketplace.
  • Strive to become the wealthiest individual in the Roman empire. There are quick and underhanded ways to make money, but your reputation and fighter’s morale may suffer as a result.
  • Receive taunting messages from opposing bosses as well as various other messages from your fighters, staff members, and different characters as you progress through the game.
  • Rename your gladiators in order to increase your attachment toward them.
  • Bet for or against your gladiator based on the odds generated by bookmakers in-game.
  • Fight purses and betting is based on the hype associated with each match. The greater the hype, the more lucrative the fight purse and betting market will be.
  • Each game is dynamically generated and different each time.

Age of Gladiators II: Rome reviews and comments

Translated by
Microsoft from Spain
This is the second version of a good game. The mechanics and way of playing are still very similar to the original Age of Gladiators: You hire Scouts, coaches, doctors and Gladiator recruits, train, weapons and then send them to the arena when there are battles. The big change and added are the overall graphics enhancement and the shift fights in a 3D amphitheater. Although you can choose to watch the fights without participating or simply to give you the result. When it comes to fighting, in your turn you have action points that you spend to zero. Each Gladiator comes with his own, which you can increase with training, buying potions or invoking his increase in full combat (with a high percentage of failure). Some have few action points, but they are strong at the time of hitting or resistant when it comes to receiving. So not everything depends on the points of action, but they are very important. You Do Not have to spend all the points on each turn, those that do not spend are added to your percentage of blocking in the next turn of the opposite: If you do not use 2 points, your block increases by 2%. There Are three strokes to choose from, each with its value in action points. More the possibility of invoking more points, to mock the opponent (which I do not know very well that does, perhaps increase their chance of failure) or to get a stronger hit. Of course, if you can move well by the sand and hit the back or flank with the possibility of a stronger blow, much better. The ultimate goal is to exhaust the points of life of the opposite, which by reaching zero falls on the sand in a pool of blood. Of course, your gladiator may be injured and need recovery days. If you lose, you can also be forgiven, but it depends on the public. The first year fights are 1vs1 to not overwhelm you in your first steps with an excess of expenses, but then there are group fights, more tactics and fun, but also more expensive results for your pocket. There Are Now, three kinds of gladiators (Murmillo, Thraex and Secutor) with their respective weapons and armour. The shields are not implemented yet and I do not understand the reason, but hopefully they will be added soon. There are Also fights with animals like bears, lions and wolves. On the economic side, you rely on winning fights and betting, which can be against, and in fulfilling missions that give you money to increase your income. You can Also spend on buying villas and land, but do not give money, only increase your fame, which is an important indicator that will allow you to send your gladiators to better cities and arenas to reach Rome and be the number one of the list. There Are more events than in the original AoG, like contracts for murders, donations from fans, work escorts, protect places or requests from your own gladiators to go to a site to solve a personal problem. Everything influences his morality, which must be taken into account as much as his abilities and strength. There Are Gladiators who like to participate in shady matters and others only in the legal. Of course, you can also run and pocket your pay. Without forgetting the lenders, they are always a temptation. If necessary, as a lack of gladiators, you can buy slaves, always of inferior quality, and send them to the sand... Betting against them. Because It is better to send garbage than to send anything when there are fights, that does not give fame. In short, a good improvement of the original, with turns fights that can be very exciting and a greater development of the events and the fame. If you liked the first Age of Gladiatrors this is a must. That Yes, I hope the dev develop more classes of gladiators, at least the Retiario!, without having to go through DLCs and add the bloody shields, that a murmillo without shield is like a Nero without lira. October 2018: Shields have been added and a new gladiator, the Barbarian berseker. The game continues its development with interest.
