  1. An inspiring action title that will captivate you through its dramatic storyline and leave you striving on a quest for freedom.
  2. Yes, Colosseum is a lot like Shadow Of Rome but with number juggling and a total lack of slightly incongruous stealth sections.

    Despite PS1-era graphics and stubborn controls, we found ourselves spending many blissful hours kicking some Roman ass.
  4. An almost completely successful swordfighting simulation. It does a better job with its setting than any game I've seen, and even though it's a little limited in scope, it's satisfying and effective at what it tries to accomplish.
