Sucks!

Absolutely HORRIBLE! First off, the Gladiators. Each has a persona, which is not themselves. Come on, Wolf (insert stupid howl here). Speaks for itself. If they wanted to rip off Battle Dome, they should have kept that name instead of trashing the greatness that was American Gladiators. And speaking of Battle Dome, 2 of the warriors of the Dome are now Gladiators. It would be more entertaining for Michael O'Dell (sorry, "Titan") to come back out with the Dahm Triplets again. T-Money should come out and punk Titan out for the jump. Second, they completely destroyed the games. Case in point, Powerball. You can honestly just take a jump shot every time instead of going up against the gladiators. The holes are about 3 to 4 times the original size. Assault, you have to load the weapons (and in some cases find the ammo) all because they shrunk the playing field so there isn't much dodging the tennis balls. Hang Tough, they cut the number of rings in half, not much strategy in it now. And of course, the Eliminator sucks completely. I do admit, it would be fun to take that barrel roll, since there are no penalties for falling anymore, falling off the barrel and the handbike cuts off about 5 seconds of your time, which defeats the purpose of the obstacle. Also, there is absolutely NO gladiator involvement in the Eliminator, that means no Choose Your Path for the final sprint. Wesley "Two Scoops" Berry must be shaking his head now. Third, Hogan and Ali don't even do the commentary. They get some annoying announcer guy (in post-production) making the Hulkster a second rate Lisa Malosky. Ok, getting the referee from Dodgeball is fine, but thats about it. Mike Adamle must be only watching ESPN Classic for better days. And forth, the production value is horrid. It doesn't look like a competition anymore. Too many quick cuts and bad camera angles. Its too heavily produced. They spend all this time on post production, they at least should have theme music, but no. Not even a remix of the original theme. Overall, it sucks. I would give this O stars out of 5, but SideReel only goes down to 1.

I completely agree. It's still entertaining but not as good as the original. Not even close.
