Product Description

The great city is in chaos. Julius Caesar, the emperor, has been murdered. The evidence points to the father of the great soldier Agrippa. But the evidence, like so much in Rome, is not what it seems. To save his father, Agrippa must conquer the bloody gladiatorial arenas. While he fights, Agrippa's friend Octavianus tries to uncover who is really behind Caesar's death using stealth and intellect. Two different stories, one epic tale, set in the Shadow of Rome

As Agrippa, fight to the death in gladiatorial combat. Use swords, bows, even severed limbs, the more brutal you are, the more the crowd will help you. Race chariots in the fastest, most fatal sport in ancient history.
As Octavianus, sneak through the senate gathering clues, solving puzzles and donning disguises. The fate of Rome rests on you not getting caught.

The moment I started playing this game I noticed the distinct Japanese feel it had about it. The script, the character models, the voice acting - this isn't necessarily a bad thing, but the first gem in Shadow of Rome is that it reconstructs the Roman era so well and hands over so much information, you can't help but marvel at it.
The story is a good and compelling one; Julius Caesar has been murdered and his killing is framed on the father of a soldier fighting in Germania, Agrippa. On returning to Rome to see his mother executed, Agrippa becomes a gladiator in order to face the man who killed her. His friend, Octavianus, nephew of the late Caesar, goes on his own private investigation to prove Agrippa's father innocent. The two storylines gives home to the fact that Shadow of Rome has two different types of gameplay - combat and stealth.
The combat is extremely bloody and brutal, yet totally compelling. There is a certain satisfaction you get as you cut your foes down. The arsenal of weapons you get is impressive, ranging from scimitars, to maces, to halberds, to morning stars. With your primary weapons, you can also get shields, helmets, daggers, torches . . . the list goes on and unravels as you continue to play. Although I was unsure of it at first, I have grown to think the combat rather amazing. It's so varied and there's countless ways of killing your foes. You can snatch their weapons from them, use fight combos, throw them into pits full of spikes, smash their skulls, severe limbs . . . which you then can beat them with. The more brutal you are, the more the audience will love you and even help you by throwing weapons into the arena, which can be a godsend.

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. Interestingly, you have to replenish your weapons often cause you wear them out!

The graphics are a bit naff but fit in with the theme and you really don't care as you slaughter another soul. But there is a flaw.

The levels are big but you can only save at the end. Run out of health, get killed or simply run out of time and it is back to the start. A couple of hours slaying down the tubes then. The opportunity to save more frequently would make this game less frustrating. In other words, this is a game for those with plenty time (and blood) on their hands.

At last there is a game that encompasses a typical fighting game with an interesting plot and story. The first thing that struck me was the intro, wow; it's almost like that Ridley Scott movie Gladiator. I have for a long time been interested in Ancient civilizations. In the past I have been an addict for strategy games such as Age of Empires, Civilization etc. Shadow of Rome really has got the same kind of credibility. Capcom has really done a great job on this one. Stunning graphics, excellent game play provide to a game that almost has everything you would ask for. One thing that I found really cool about the game is the weapons you use when you are fighting. Sometimes even the crowd throws in weapons. The game is really bloody, but it sure is entertaining!

Where do I start?....WOW! I bought this game when it first came out on the ps2 and loved it, completed it fairly quickly and then did the usual and traded it in for another game when I had finished with it. Now approximately 2-3 years after its release I have bought it again...why? because most games coming out on the 360 at the minute are so utterly dissapointing.

The only thing which stopped me from giving it a full five out of five rating is that the game is broken down in to two parts, the epic coliseum battles where you play Agrippa a former captain in the army reduced to a gladiator to save his fathers life who has been accused of murdering Julius Ceasar, and secondly Octavionus, Agrippa's cousin who meanwhile is trying to prove who really murdered Julius Ceasar. These scenes to be honest are pretty dull, and you find yourself hurrrying to get through them so you can get back to the action with Agrippa...

As anyone will see who reads my reviews is that I haven't been too impressed of late with the gaming industry, one dissapointing and shoddy title after another I have been forced to return to games of the past, and what a game Shadow Of Rome is.

The battle levels are truly awesome, from chopping peoples arms off and then using it to club its previous owner to death, to chopping people completely in half, to battling elephants covered in armour and packs of tigers, using catapults to break down draw bridges or break down enemies, the list goes on and it is simply wonderful fun gaming...obviously the graphics now look a little dated but at the time of writing this review (May 08) the game is approx 2-3 years old but that doesn't matter...the gaming is what is important here and you simply can't get any better, I wish modern games had half as much playability and style that this game has.

All in all though a fantastic game!!
