Official description
The year is 44 B.C. The grandeur of the Republic of Rome has been tarnished by political corruption and society has been overrun by unruliness and violence. Julius Caesar advocates for drastic reform but he is met with opposition and murdered. The horrific news finds its way to the ears of one soldier, Agrippa, whose father is accused of the murder. Unfortunately, time is running out for Agrippa as his father is to be publicly executed by the winner of the next gladiatorial event. Venture throughout ancient Rome with the help of Agrippa's best friend, Octavius, and a female gladiator named Claudia. Shadow of Rome will automatically switch between Agrippa and Octavius, each of whom have their own area of expertise, to rescue Agrippa's father and uncover the truth.
Features:

* Character switching Shadow of Rome blends action and adventure with the use of two different main characters, Agrippa and Octavius. One character lends itself more to action and the other is crucial for the adventure elements of the game. Switch between the brains and brawn to uncover the truth behind the real murderer of Caesar.
* Full 3-D polygonal environments - Ancient Rome is stunningly recreated immersing the player by bringing a sense of realism to the game
* Gameplay variety Shadow of Rome thrusts players into numerous sub-challenges where they participate in gladiatorial events such as chariot racing, tournament battles and duals to the death.
* Dolby Sound Pro Logic II Shadow of Rome will include a sound system similar to those found in todays motion pictures. This creates an experience of truly being part of the action by utilizing a wide array of sound effects that reconstruct the hustle and bustle of ancient Rome or the roar of a crowd at the Coliseum.
* Historical figures of ancient Rome round off the colorful cast of Shadow of Rome.
