FEATURED VOXPOP oblivion437 Update: I was unfortunately not aware of Shamus Young's severe criticism of Fallout 3 available here to link in the original piece and I regret that.  It dovetails rather nicely with what I've written and it's much better executed than my piece.  I strongly recommend anyone...

Gameplay:
Circus Maximus: Chariot Wars combines the thrill of combat with the adrenaline rush of racing. This takes place in huge environments throughout the Roman Empire, from the frozen wastelands of Germania to the Coliseum in the heart of ancient Rome.
Competitors race to the finish line, and use skill and strategy to avoid obstacles, outwit competing teams and battle against other chariots. Players must keep balanced on a chariot that is careening down narrow uneven roads, tracks and bridges.
Adding to the excitement is the players' ability to control two characters: the driver and the warrior.
