Based on the popular TV show, American Gladiators has players competing against Gladiators Ice, Gold, Gemini, and Laser in seven events: Joust, Wall, Powerball, Atlasphere, Human Cannonball, Assault, and the Eliminator. Graphics are grainy and cartoonish and repetitive music is used throughout most of the game. A two-player mode allowing players to compete in an elimination format is about its only saving grace. American Gladiators does provide minor enjoyment, though it mainly just frustrates and aggravates.
When you play the game enough, it becomes too easy. It isn't even a challenge anymore. The only contest is in versing another human. For some people, like me, the game is fun to play occasionally. But I know that there are people who can't stand the game. The best way to figure out if you like this one is to try it for yourself. But don't pay too much for it.

Should you complete all the events without, well, without turning the machine off basically, you get to compete in the Eliminator - a true test of digit stamina. Eight separate mini challenges form the ultimate test at the end of the game, although most of them just require you to hit the joypad buttons rapidly.

War bereits die Mega Drive-Version von äußerst schlechten Eltern, so scheint mir, Gametek hat sich bei der Super Nintendo-Variante noch ein bißchen weniger angestrengt. Die einzelnen Disziplinen sind derart geistlos gestaltet, daß sich in ihnen nicht das kleinste Quentchen Spielspaß finden läßt. Und wenn man sich dann doch einmal in einem Anflug von Masochismus durch alle Übungen hindurchgekämpft hat, herrscht bereits nach diesem ersten Mal gnadenlose Langweile. American Gladiators ist nur etwas für Leute mit zuviel Geld und zu wenig Geschmack.
Le résultat est là, Messieurs les jurés. Votre verdict ? Comment ça, zéro!

The main thing that's needed is for the events that make up a Gladiators tournament to be translated into challenging, playable games. But they're not. They're useless. The graphics are weedy, the controls are mainly of the 'hit L and R as fast as you can' variety and they're no fun at all.
Total!! UK Magazine
A hopeless collection of little 'events' from the TV show. Words cannot convey it crapness.
