Quoted from Shadow of Rome Reviews:
Check out these quotes from Shadow of Rome reviews & previews
"While there were some shortcomings to the game, I don’t regret my time invested. Although it definitely is not the best of its genre, Shadow of Rome tried something new, and largely did a good job, which can only be respected along with the game’s tenacity."
"In truth the concept of Shadow of Rome is superb on paper, and bits of it work really well. Once the combat stops being a one-button-win it builds into a genuinely captivating series of varied events and manages to present the futile bloodlust in an unsympathetic light, yet making the process of limb removal, beheading or carving someone's torso straight down the middle a thrilling experience. But given that 50 per cent of the game involves some inescapably poor stealth interludes that Capcom is evidently not experienced in pulling off you're left mumbling into your beer about a missed opportunity."
"Shadow has the same ingredients of many a game that has gone before (well, except for the Juicy Tomatoes), but it's a whole new remixed recipe for Capcom's 3D adventures. Fresher, but not better."
"Shadow of Rome offers some of the best hack-and-slash combat around and wraps it up in an interesting story that puts an original spin on the events of Julius Caesar's death."
"...it's like Rygar with stealth elements and less-spazzy combat. Capcom definitely has a solid game on its hands. If it can polish things up properly before release, it could have a great one."
