    Shadow of Rome is a PS2 hack n' slash game that emphasizes an ancient and true historical Roman setting, back to the days of Julius Ceasar's rule over the kingdom, however, he was assassinated, and two characters are in search for the real truth behind the killing. Players can take the role of the muscle-bound Agrippa who was once a roman soldier and now a gladiator, and the role of the modest but adventurous Octavianus, who you can play if you want mostly stealth and adventure elements. For action and plenty of blood and gore, it is in Agrippa's side which mostly takes place in gladiatorial arenas. Definitely not a game for the faint of heart.

    I got hooked up with this game 3 years ago (now I know). This is the only console game I got really hooked on because of the explicitly detailed gore and violence which will put you at the edge of your seat. After watching Elfen Lied I was introduced with even more violence with this one...
