Summary: I personally love to become immersed in the story. this story was a great one from the beginning. very compelling the whole way through. The game play i felt to be fun as well, flowed smooth not to diffult to remember the game flowed nicely. If you like a good story based game with adventure and a bit of role playing as a gladiator tuned roman soldier this game will keep you entertained. I wish i still had a ps2. I love this game.
Summary: I really had no idea what this game was going to be about, but after reading the box I was like ohhhhh. The story is in Rome (duh) but it takes the assassination of Cesar to a whole different level. For one, you can actually have fun following the two stories. Octavius the blond guy who does all the spying and Aggripa the guy who does all the actual gladiator fights. By the way if your a fan of Gladiator this will definitely make you love that movie even more.
Summary: Shadow of Rome is a phenomenal game that should not go unnoticed by any PS2 adventure fan. The plot and storyline are extremely intriguing while the gameplay switches between two characters with two completely unique gameplay styles. Ad the repertoire for each character's available moves is incredibly deep. Wonderful pacing, smooth control, and great dialogue make this game an essential piece in any Capcom fan's or PS2 adventure gamer's library.
Summary: When I first played this game I thought"Great another hack and slash game with no story"oh how wrong I was. This game is like reading about the history of Rome without the annoying gods! The game is split up into two game plays. First lots of hack and slashing with many weapons to choose from. Second is stealth missions (these are my favorite!). There's also a short part where you guide chariots in races.
Summary: I usually play as a Spartan in video games like this. In Spartan: Total Warrior (loved that game by the way) I had to hack and slash my way through hordes of Romans. This gave me strong hate towards them. I loved the movie 300(my favorite film of all time) and although only Persians were killed, Spartans were killing, and I love Spartans. Now that you understand how much Sparta means to me, on with the review. This game was a blast sometimes and a bore other times.
