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: I have had this game for a few days now and it is very impressive for a pre roma-paxa era game. one word about the stealth, make sure you have something soft to throw your remote at because you can only strangle and knock out guys and tools run out pretty quick. The fighting portion of the game however is great, you can get great weapons depending on how gruesomely you kill some people.
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.
Summary: As a history lover and assiduous reader of the deeds and registries of acient kingdoms and empires, i couldn't feel less than attracted to play a game which sunks you into the experience of surviving the last days of the Republican era in ancient Rome. Undertaking the role of a coarse Roman centurion, Agrippa, and his feeble friend Octavianus, whom is indeed no less than Caesar's nephew, the original story behind Caesar's assasination is cleverly modified, and re-told in...
Summary: Agrippa is a centurion in the Roman army. Patroling the outskirts of Germania, his regimant hapens upon a captured roman messenger, who tells him Ceaser has been assasinated. Arriving home his friend, informs him that Agrippa's own father has been arrested for the murder. The Roman empire decides to hold gladitorial games and the winner will execute Agrippa's father... You cannot lose.
Summary: I pulled an all nighter playing this game. The graphics were great and I enjoyed the battle scenes. Its the average bad guy wants to conquer Rome, bad guy murders Ceasar, a Innocent man is blamed for it, and a annoying blond guy is searching for the answer. You play two roles, Agrippa and octavious. Agrippa, who becomes a gladiator to find his dad, and Octavious who is searching for the answer to ceasars death.
Summary: Judging from the demo fans of the classic hack'n slash formula have something big, and beautiful, to look forward too. Shadows of Rome promises to be an exilerating and gory excursion during the political strife caused by Ceasar's assassination. The game already looks great. Seeing the sun at high noon over the city of Rome, high cliffs, and dense forests would be enough to steal the show if that headless man wasn't so distracting.
