Charioteers, are you ready? Prepare to enter the age of the Roman Empire. Choose your chariot and horses well as you embark on your mission to become the greatest charioteer of all time. Pit your wits against opponents from all over the known globe and earn your way to fight in the greatest arena of all: Circus Maximums. No charioteer would be complete without his training, and Sallus will instruct you in the fine art of combat. First you'll learn to be a master behind the reigns, controlling your chariot and avoiding obstacles so that you're ready for your first taste in the arena. Advance through the training and you'll be ready to show off your skills in dual action combat, controlling the dexterous warrior fighting his way to victory on the back of the chariot. Combine this with the charioteering and you might stand a chance of reaching your next challenge--slicing and dicing your way through three opponents to cross the line first and collect those all important dinari. Once unlocked you have the opportunity of some multi-player action--get ready to leave your fellow players eating dirt as you race to yet another victory in this bloodthirsty sport. If you're looking for something different then Circus Maximums, which combines the dual skills of racing and fighting, with the added value of a great historical backdrop, may be for you. Granted, this may not be the best looking game on a next-generation console, but given the chance it's a game brimming with Imperial atmosphere. So if you feel like a challenge and want to impress the great Emperor himself, enter the arena and prepare to unleash hell.--Rob Holliday
