i think you oughta definatly make a sequel to this game
but some things should be left unchanged,like the storyline should stay the same,to be the best gladiator,in the game!somethings to think about changing is:1. make it multi-player make the game playable via internet.
2.movement make it so you can do the movements of the weapons from the key board or maybe a joystick.
3.add thrusting motion
4.more weapons,armor,a win/loss record dont worry about expiance points,the idea is to fight in arenas and collesseums,this can be monitored by win/loss record
5. add features of loss of limbs,the head,torso penatration
6.make it so all who play start in thier own village,that they can name
7.set up tournament play via the internet,making it so that players can work thier way from villages,to arenas,to collesseums by thier win/loss record
