    Guys do you know game where you manage a team of gladiators. You can hire various fantasy creatures and equipt them. You can then fight against other teams in a turn based combat.

    I remember playing this game about 17 years ago. It didn't have very good graphics and it might have been made by Finns.

    Is there a translated version of this somewhere? I cannot be bothered to look, but I am guessing not.

    Areena 7 has an english translation. It's web-based though and has some races removed in the free version.

    I know the OP already found the game he was looking for, but for those looking for other games in the genre, there's also Gladius (I played it on the Xbox--I don't think it ever received a PC port).

    yes, but the game is still good! I think it was the closest to a real tactical game we got on the XBOX.

    Age of Gladiators is a very interesting management game about running a stable of gadiators. It is very non-graphic oriented, but still a very compelling and enjoyable game.

    http://store.steampowered.com/app/442500/Age_of_Gladiators/

    And, they are working on Age of Gladiators 2, that takes it into the future. It's due out soon, and also looks like a blast.

    Interesting, I may keep an eye out for the sequel. It reminds me a little of Imperium: Arena of Death, but that game puts more emphasis on the combat itself and has those descriptive text prompts from old football manager games. Unfortunately they're not written very well.

    'Homunculus advances and takes a hard swing with his sword at Maximus and the opponent easily and quickly ducks away from the sword.'

    The next two are not strictly gladiator management games:

    crown champions:


    I haven't tested it, but it has very positive reviews on steam.
    It looks like a JRPG where you are the head of small gladiatoral team.
    However, the negative ones mention automated combat with zero decision to make.

    There is also an old multiplayer webgame, Battle Arenas.
    You manage your gladiators (spend skill points, buy gear), then go FFA in large arenas.
    You get action points back every hours.
    I haven't played for years, but it was nice when I did (something like 10 years ago?).

    I wish there was more to do in the game after you've figured it out, but it's still a fun little game to kill some time. Wait for it to go on sale. It's kind of like the Spartacus TV series that was out on Showtime a few years back. Great soundtrack. Game is very auto-pilot though, much easier to let the AI do everything for you in the arena combat.
