em>We may be a little late to the tiệc ngọt on this one, Attack On Titan: Wings Of Freedom actually released on the 26th of August, after all. But Pure PlayStation’s Dom O’Leary likes to lớn take his time when working-over large naked men, so deal with it. Anyhow, if you don’t know yet; the game, based on the critically acclaimed manga and anime franchise of the same name, is a new take on the Musou gamesfrom developer Omega Force & publisher Koei Tecmo (Dynasty Warriors, Warriors Orochi, and a thousand spin offs). Pretend you’ve read nothing about this game elsewhere, & find out what our flesh hungry reviewer thought of his time within the walls below.Attack on Titan presents an interesting proposition lớn me; not only does it represent a significant change-up in chơi game from your normal ‘Warriors’ game, it also promises lớn offer a faithful representation of a fantastic anime series. I’ve long learned to lớn be wary when it comes khổng lồ licensed franchises being made into games though, so my mood going into this one could best be described as cautious optimism. Optimism soon turned lớn delight, as I found a fantastic reproduction of the source material, and an innovative take on 1 v 100 gameplay. Read on with me, friends, to lớn find out whether this promising start developed into a great overall experience, & to answer probably the biggest question that hangs over a game lượt thích this; if I never watched the anime or read the manga, will I have any idea what’s going on in the game?The tasks you’ll be given are just about varied enough khổng lồ stop the formula getting stale, & later on (through a series of events I won’t spoil for you new people) you’ll get the ability lớn fist-fight with the giants toe-to-toe, which serves to lớn increase the variation in gameplay, và is ridiculous fun. The true strength of this game, however, is in how the gameplay, missions, dialogue, cut-scenes và vignettes all come together as a cohesive package; whether you’re a series tín đồ or not, there’s a story to follow, & the missions you’ll tackle và your abilities all make sense in context.Controlling the ODM Gear can take some getting used to, but once you’ve got the hang of switching targets, boosting & attacking you’ve got the basics. Once you’re past that hurdle, there’s much more depth to the combat khổng lồ dig into, if you like that kind of thing. On easy mode, you could beat the trò chơi with these basics, but lớn get any further on harder difficulties, you’ll need to lớn get the hang of; managing resources, giving squad orders, using items và buffs, and your specific character’s traits lớn augment your slicing skills. Variation of skills between characters is also a nice touch; some are strong, some are fast, others are better leaders, và it’s all faithful to lớn these character’s roles in the source material.The enemies themselves, the eponymous Titans, also deserve a special mention. They are truly one of the most disturbing antagonists I have ever seen in the original manga, and that is lovingly recreated here. Their perpetually grinning human faces on top of grotesque, gigantic, naked, (mostly) masculine frames are a fantastic use of the familiar/unfamiliar juxtaposition so popular in modern horror. Enemy design is massively varied, too – as evidenced by the huge amount of unlockable statues of the beasts you can later decorate your base with.

They range from 10 foot giants to lớn 50 foot monsters, and some special ‘boss’ type enemies with different abilities and patterns also appear later on in the game.There is also an online co-op mode (which can also be played offline in single player) called expedition mode. To be honest though, it’s pretty much the same story as the main trò chơi mode, except that you can vị consecutive missions lớn boost your rewards. Enjoyment is boosted slightly by adding a partner, but overall it doesn’t showroom much lớn the game. I can’t count this as a negative though, as the game feels like a complete package without it, & it’s a fully realised additional mode so it doesn’t detract from the game either.Apart from the minor annoyances mentioned above, & the occasionally hilarious physics of your enemies (the only way I can describe this is ‘bobble-head’ physics, the enemy character models will sometimes pivot and bend amusingly around a fixed base when faced with complex geometry), this game is an almost perfect example of its type. For me, it is the best trò chơi that has ever come from a licensed anime franchise, the most innovative trò chơi in its broadly related game franchise for a long time, & taken on its own, just bloody good fun to play. I can’t assessthis from the point of view of someone who has never seen the original manga or anime series. But, more than any anime based trò chơi I have ever played, I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend this trò chơi to my Japan-o-phobicbuddies. Eren Jaeger wants lớn eliminate every last Titan on earth, and you know what? I think I might just join him.Attack on Titan: Wings of Freedom is available now as a physical disc or digital tải về for PS4 và Xbox One.
