Like Space Marine! But not in space!
Look at all those QTEs!!!
Like most modern games, this looks very pretty...and completely boring.
crytek has gone full casul
Is this a rail shooter er... stabber?

I'd like just once to see Romans portrayed with Italian accents, maybe even speaking Latin.. Just not more bloody English accents please!!!
This was the visual equivalent of eating a saltine cracker.

Such a goddamn shame. I love the time period and they fucked it up by making it a fully scripted interactive movie. Ah well, who am I kidding. I wasn't going to play it anyway.
I want a game where you are Seneca, and you have to write the speeches that keeps Nero popular, and therefore you and your buddylover the head of the Roman military, in power. Mini games can include "keep Nero uninterested in politics" and "keep Nero uninterested in warfare" alongside "keep Rome clueless about Nero" and "run like hell out of the city when Nero gets tired of you."
I'd play it.
I also want to play a game where I have to run a mint in the 3rd century and
1: try to guess whose head to put on the coins next
2: have to make the increasingly low silver deliveries go further and further.

PRESS LB TO PERFORM A COMPLEX SERIES OF TASKS THAT IN A BETTER GAME WOULD CONSTITUTE THE MAJORITY OF THE CONFLICT RATHER THAN A HOLLOW SET-PIECE RIFE WITH THE SORT OF GRATUITOUS VIOLENCE THAT HUMILIATES PEOPLE WHO ACTUALLY PLAY GAMES

PRESS LB TO MOMENTARILY PRESERVE THE ROMAN REPUBLIC, WELL AWARE THAT ROME'S FALL WOULD LACK EVEN THE ROMANTICISM OF THE HEDONISTIC NARRATIVE THAT HACK HISTORIANS LOVE TO IMPLY, INSTEAD OF THE MORE PLAUSIBLE NARRATIVE THAT ROME'S DOWNFALL WAS INEVITABLE, GIVEN THAT IT TOOK PLACE OVER HUNDREDS OF YEARS AND REMAINS A SIGNIFICANT PLAYER IN GLOBAL POLITICS TO THIS DAY.
Press X to not unite the splintered empire because of Plague.
What's great is if you just listen to the sound effects, it doesn't sound anything like anything recognizable as a setting or set of actions. It's just typical game noise accompanied by boring as hell modern orchestrated music. Then, you look at the game and get even less impressed.
Press the X in the window button to dissmiss this generic QTE game.
This looks like it will become Xbox One's God of War.
