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: As the title says it doesn't work. The delivery time was amazing worthy of 5 stars. the game however only worked until a cut scene within an hours worth of game-play. I still rate a 3 however because it is only this slightest scratch and once I pay £3 to repair it will be fine from then on I'm sure. I would recommend buying from here if you want a cheap game that's for sure.

Summary: I remember seeing this game come out back when I was younger but was put off by the amount of blood shown on the back of the box. Years later and I finally thought it was about time to toughen up and give it a go. Plot: It's all based around the murder of Julius Caesar. You play the part of two characters. The first one is called Agrippa who is away fighting when his father is accused of the murder.
Summary: So some poor chap gets blamed for killing Julius Ceasar so its up to you to find the culprit. You do so by alternating between a centurion who beats the living daylights out of anything with a pulse and another roman who likes to sneak about alot. In fact, his game is very good and at least has some story to it. The short but frequent cut scenes help and you have some limited interaction with other characters. The meat of the game is the old 'beat em' up.

Summary: Selten habe ich mich über ein Spiel so geärgert wie über Shadow of Rome. Während mir die action- und facettenreichen Arenakämpfe sehr viel Spaß bereiteten, wurde ich zirka alle 30 Minuten aus dem gelungenen Schlachten herausgerissen und musste mich mit Milchgesicht Octavianus durch öde Trial & Error-Passagen quälen. Lediglich der Gedanke an weitere Fights mit Gladitorenheld Agrippa konnte mich hier zum Weiterspielen bewegen.
Excerpt: Gioco molto affascinante.E' un gioco ambientato nella Roma dei gladiatori ma la trama è stravagante. Molte sono le cose che lo rendono unico e cioè le mosse che sono stupende la ricchezza di azione e i dialoghi molto ben usati e sviluppati. Una molto rivelante nel gioco è la presenza di scene altamente cruente e quindi di scene dove il sangue che schizza ovunque riempie il campo di lotta.Così può essere più realistico ma forse violento eccessivamente..Una ...
Pros: Molto cruento
Cons: Ripetitivo dopo un certo periodo,difficile .
