  1. 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.
  2. An inspiring action title that will captivate you through its dramatic storyline and leave you striving on a quest for freedom.

    Despite PS1-era graphics and stubborn controls, we found ourselves spending many blissful hours kicking some Roman ass.
  4. Yes, Colosseum is a lot like Shadow Of Rome but with number juggling and a total lack of slightly incongruous stealth sections.
