Swords and Sandals 3: Multiplae Ultratus
Gladiators received their fair share of fame and glory back in the day, especially since they were treated almost like royalty by the people who paid to watch them fight. Hence, after a warrior would manage to win a few confrontations and put on a good show for the crowd, their lives would practically change by quite a lot, although the danger of being killed in battle would still loom over their heads.
Become a legendary gladiator
Swords and Sandals 3: Multiplae Ultratus provides you with the opportunity to become a great warrior and gather the fruits of fame and glory, by defeating everyone who stands before you in the arena. Unlike the previous episodes, however, Multiplae Ultratus is solely centered around the multiplayer component, which means that you only get fight against other humans over the Internet and compete with them for experience and gold.
Other than that, there are no major gameplay differences from the singleplayer version, since your character has more or less the same selection of spells and abilities, all of which must be used adequately in order to be effective. Hence, although there are dozens of races and specialties to choose from, your ability to make use of these abilities is the final and most important factor in a match, since it is entirely possible to meet other gladiators with similar stats throughout your journey.
Gather gold and buy better equipment
In case you are not familiar with the series, you should know that the game also has a few RPG elements to spice up the gameplay. Hence, your character can level up by acquiring experience points, as well as get more powerful spells and increase his abilities. The most important aspect, however, remains the fact that you can buy better weapons and armor pieces, each one of which can make a huge difference in a fight.
Speaking of which, the battles are in turns and each player gets to perform one action when his turn comes, which can either be a weapon attack, or you can move around the arena a few steps and make it more difficult for the enemy to reach you. In addition, you can also taunt the other fighter and cause him to stumble, or even perform a jump to cover more ground as you try to move faster.
A lot of fun and entertainment
All in all, Swords and Sandals 3: Multiplae Ultratus is definitely a fun and entertaining title, as well as insanely addictive. Moreover, once you get to acquire a few items and raise your character to a decent level, everything becomes even more fun, since the fights go on for longer and you have the possibility to use far more powerful attacks.
