Return to the cultural heights of ancient Rome to face challenges of skill and bravery as a true warrior of the time — in violent chariot races and bloody gladiator battles. Hippodromes alive with cheering fans set the stage for deadly contests of speed and strategy. Players select from 22 different lead characters based on the tribes and factions of the era. Hundreds of possible driver, horse, and chariot combinations allow the player to draft a team well-suited to his or her style of play.
Battle races take place in seven environments, across 19 tracks. Three single-player modes are offered — training, arcade, and career — and multiplayer options support up to four human-controlled warriors at once. Upgrades and new features become available as characters win races and move up the ranks. Exclusive to the Xbox at the time of release, Encore's Circus Maximus: Chariot Wars offers console gamers a fresh style of play in a familiar setting of noble warriors and courageous competition. ~ T.J.
