A non-stop action game, completely skill based. Immerse yourself into an incredible adventure in a world inspired by the 80s’ Sword & Sorcery fantasy. Frantic action, brutal fighting, monsters, romance, and plenty of Heavy Metal rhythms.


In a kingdom conquered by an evil sorcerer, a beautiful girl known for her prophesies as the Oracle predicts the coming of a savior, a Barbarian who will come from far away and break the chains of slavery.


◾ Six game characters: What are their destinies? It depends on you, as each character has unique abilities and special moves.

◾ Deadly mini games: Several brutal mini games that will challenge your reflex.

◾ Grindhouse / B-movie effects: This is optional, but definitely recommended for fans of low budget 80s sword & sorcery movie.

◾ Multiple endings: the endings depend not only on the chosen character, but also on the series of actions taken during the game.

◾ Gore, Blood and Guts: Massacre your enemies, chop them in pieces.

◾ Non-stop action: No breaks, you must always be on guard.

◾ Completely Skill Based: No RPG elements, everything is based on your reflexes and your abilities as a player.

◾ Versus Mode: Challenge anybody - your friend, your girlfriend, your relative - and find out who is the strongest.

◾ Full Heavy Metal soundtrack: Go wild on a battleground to Heavy Metal rhythm.

ARENA an Age of Barbarians story reviews and comments

Translated by

The first Age of Barbarian Game was a lot of Fun for me at the time. There seems to be nothing left of that now. The whole Game principle is Crap high 10. There is a Random Selection Of Tasks each time. These consist of Battles against 1 To 2 opponents at the same time, of which some Fights are unfairly difficult and the other Tasks are such miserable annoying Things as pressing a Button at the right Time. A Mistake and immediately you are dead. For example, if you have Mastered 6 to 7 tasks without dying, there is always some Crap that you can no longer manage. I totally hate games like that! I hope a lot of things change, because that'S how Arena is absolutely not fun! The System Requirements are also wrong. I had wondered why you would suddenly supposedly need a Geforce nvidia GT 520 as a Minimum. I play the Game in perfectly fluid quality like the Previous one with just: Windows 7 32bit Geforce nvidia GTX 260 At THE Moment I'm just frustrated with how miserable unfair the Game is ...

ARENA an Age of Barbarians story (v1.6.3) Http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1327721333 POSITIVES + 80S Sword & Sorcery + Blood, Barbarians and Breasts + 6 different Characters with own Skills + Heavy Metal Soundtrack during fights + Order of Fights is random, of course, which provides some Variety + Various Mini-games (but all of which are not really good) http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1327785987 NEGATIVES-lame intro that basically just a Wall of Text Has to show and is not even set to music-even otherwise "spoken" Texts are not set to music-no German Translation-time Limit-no RPG elements-no saving (!) only a certain Number of Credits-no more correct levels-playing Time is too short And also The Game content is very manageable, and not comparable to its Predecessor http://steamcommunity.com/sharedfiles/filedetails/?id=1327721691 FAZIT ARENA IS an action slasher from Late 2017. In Contrast to the Predecessor, one Contests here almost only one Arena fight after another, defeats different opponents, runs through a short underground Walk to the next Arena or completes Poorly made mini-games. In "Age of Barbarian" there were still correct levels that you crossed and explored with many weaker opponents and at the End a cool Boss Opponent. But they completely changed this Concept here and put the Focus on Duels, which I didn't like so much. I expected more of what the Predecessor offered. I'm also not a Friend of playing with a certain Number of life credits just to have to start over again when they're used up, because that just artificially stretches the Game time and I have to repeat Fights Unnecessarily often. I Still rated the predecessor "Age of Barbarian" positively, but this Time there is a Thumbs down from me. If you are interested in further Reviews of me, follow my Group.
