Description

Shadow of Rome is set in 44 B.C. in Ancient Rome - a stunning yet brutal time when the republic had grown to be the dominating cultural force in the Western world. However, the Senate's rule began to cast a dark shadow on Rome's former glory as corruption and war-bred despair led to the rise of Julius Caesar, who exuded a confidence that would rally the people and lead them from turmoil. Then on the Ides of March Caesar was brutally assassinated in an act that changed the face of the Western world forever. Join Agrippa the Centurion and Octavianus, the stealthy brain, in an action/stealth game that goes deep into this conspiracy and to the heart of danger in an attempt to clear Vipsanius, Agrippa's father from the wrongful accusation of Caesar's murder.

Trivia

Inspiration

One could notice a fine line of similarities between this game and the Gladiator movie (2000) with Russell Crowe, from main character to other characters and events that take place. Enough to make you wonder if developers of this game were inspired by the movie.
