Shadow Of Rome

 

Nearly every game I've played in the past year or two that focuses on the Roman Empire has been a real-time strategy game. And while I don't mind real-time strategy game, it was getting a little repetitive. So imagine my surprise when I received yet...

Great, sharp, detailed visuals, including huge characters ; Easy-to-understand controls that make playing the game a joy ; Fascinating blend of all-out action, combined with stealth mystery-solving and RPG-style elements ; Fun story that takes a bit of...

NPC companions are sometimes little more than cannon fodder ; Coming out around the same time as God of War may draw unfortunate comparisons, making it seem like a copycat title. (It’s not.)

Capcom has taken a risk on an original, non-sequel title and delivered a refreshing blend of several different genres. One of the more appealing action-stealth-RPG games we’ve played – except that it’s coming out at a time when there’s been a flood of...

Hail Caesar! Until it's time to kill him.

And that action sounds as good as it looks. Metal clashes on metal and sounds perfect. When metal meets flesh, the meaty chunks sound as painful as they look. The crowd goes nuts when they're supposed to and in a busy, crowded arena, it's not just you...

The time is 44 B.C., and the Roman Empire is in a state of turmoil. Caesar has been assassinated, and the wrong person has been accused. The general of the Roman army has become a gladiator. He begins fighting in smaller city arenas, but his drive to...

Shadow of Rome - PS2 review at Thunderbolt Games

 

I'm having a really hard time with games lately. Three big games in the last, I don't know, maybe six months or so, have disappointed me. FarCry, which I thought was brilliant up until it's last two levels which completely ruined the game, and then...

The Gameplay's The Thing!

In the end, Shadow of Rome gets mixed results. The action sequences are seemingly worth the price of admission, as they contain some of the best hack �n slash action that the PlayStation 2 has to offer. The unfolding story presents an interesting tale...

Shadow of Rome Review

 

Capcom heads back to the time of the Roman Empire to bring you a welcome title.

Enough complaints. If Acclaim's Gladiator could satisfy on its barely above-average levels and unique questing, then Shadow of Rome dominates in pure burly fashion with its strengthened action and somewhat smart stealth sequences. It may frustrate...

More bloody decapitations and less sub-par stealth shenanigans please.

Sparse but fluid visuals; great gory fighting engine; entertaining gruesome action

Dull stealth levels; voice acting only average; frustrating trial and error parts; lacking depth

It will take both brains and brawn to conquer the corruption of Julius Caesar's Rome, so this action-adventure from Capcom offers two playable characters and encourages gamers to switch between them as they face its various challenges. The brave warrior A

Shadow Of Rome (PS2) review

 

The year is 44 B.C. The grandeur of the Republic of Rome has been tarnished by political corruption and society has been overrun by unruliness and violence. Julius Caesar advocates for drastic reform but he is met with opposition and murdered. The...

Grab a sword and shield – it's time for gladiatorial battle! But is this game good enough to avoid execution??

A typical hack'em and slash'em game just with that little bit extra that makes it stand out from the crowd - a great game.
