Hey, Just like to brief you Roman Empire fanatics about Shadow of Rome. The game play is really smooth and clear. The graphics are sweet and very textured. Dudes you can see the strands of hair in the wolves. Played it for 5 hours straight and not one glitch.
The characters are a little bit buff up "exaggerated"; however, still present great texture and movement throughout the screen.
I thought the double character feature would confuse the story line, but on the contrary it's very clear with in depth details. It's a cool feature to have. One second your brutally cutting limbs off 5 minutes later your in stealth mode next thing you know, your in a chariot race. The diverse game play gives you aspects of many genres of videogames. (GTA, Resident Evil, Metal Gear).
It's true Rome wasn't built in a day, and if you enjoy playing a game that will last you a long time, you'll also see that Shadow of Rome can't be won in a day. You are getting your $$ worth with this game.
Folks, be prepared to join S.R.A. (Shadow of Rome Anonymous) because this game is addictive.
Great Job Capcom!!!
