Circus Maximus: Chariot Wars

Availability: In leading software retail outlets nationwide first quarter, 2002

Platform: Xbox video game system from Microsoft, NTSC/ - U.S.

Genre: Combat-racing

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. The driver maneuvers the chariots and guides the stallions as they charge through the twisting terrain, while the warrior fights with a signature weapon and shield. Competitors can play as many as 20 different characters while taking on different opponent teams.

  • Seven environments (Germania, Rome, Cyprus, Britannia, Alexandria, Circus Maximus and Circus of Nero), each with its own track, shortcuts, hazards and objects
