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: Hit and Miss gameplay at best. Major Mike nailed it when he said the game is stop and go. The stealth missions do offer some interesting story, but they feel like a waste of time. I want to be hacking limbs with my guillotine move, but instead I am frustratingly poking around the senate house....again....to find another senator....again. There is a little puzzle solving in the stealth, which is refreshing, but still I would play MGS if I want to sneak around and kill.
Summary: What are you gonna do today, play shadow of rome, gosh. it is flippin' sweeeet and has a great concept that with the character switching and gameplay change can be hit or miss... lucky it hits like a precise bowhunter. This game kicks harder than Rex Kwan Do and i must recommend it to you all so get it on like dqwon.
Summary: friends, romans, gamers, lend me your controllers for shadow of rome has been released after much anticipation since its e3 preview. capcom thrusts you into an all too real reincarnation of ancient rome amidst the assasination of caesar setting the backdrop for a gory adventure. using unique character switching, SOR enlists the brute centurion agrippa and the slimmer brainier octavianus to give a duality of fighting and stealth that enhances the level of gameplay.
Summary: Every once and a while a game comes out that totally shocks and suprises the gaming world, and SOR certainly surprised me, to say the least. For starters this genre has had a few dismal titles in recent years, i mean LucasArts Gladius wasnt recieved as it was percieved, and lets not comment on the below average Gladiator Sword of Vengance, that said SOR is the best game in this genre [on console] i ever played.
Summary: i really dont understand what the big deal everyone is making about this so called plot twist and how raiden is a little "girly boy" i thought the game was tight. maybe its because i didnt play the first game but i still think this game rocked. ive beaten theres fun extra things you can do like hold-up an enemy solider or sneek around in russian uniforms and have people believe you are russian! so i dont know why so many people are jointin this game.
