This game really seems like a dud. When the most exciting thing about your game is the camera swoops, I think you've gone in the wrong direction. The rest just seems drab, like an extended Arkham Asylum combat sequence. As much as he claimed otherwise, you can't deny how much those QTE color flashes popped up.

Also, we already see how the story ends, right? Guy is "all about Rome" but then it turns out a Roman guy was responsible for his family's death and he has to question his faith in his nation. Fascinating.
