Video game adaptations of movies and TV shows can often be a bumpy road but don’t sleep on Attack On Titan which turned out to be a faithful and fun anime adapted video game. Attack On Titan quickly became one of the most popular anime shows of all time with fans eagerly awaiting more and this video game may at least give them something to hold them over even if it’s mostly a retelling of the first season of the show.
What makes the Attack On Titan video game fun is the fluidity of movement in the environment. Your characters can easily shoot out cables and swing on them and dash forward to rapidly get around the landscape much like Spider-Man can transverse the city. Attack On Titan will have you fighting large naked humanoid Titans who are hell-bent on eating as many people as they can get their hands on. The controls take some time to get used to but once mastered you can swoop in from above or below to hack away Titan limbs and eventually slice their nape at the back of the neck.
Action sequences from Attack On Titan are broken up with anime cut scenes and some dialogue stuff where you can manage your character, stats and inventory. At a glance you can see that plenty of care went into making Attack On Titan a faithful adaptation of the show and one worth checking out!
Attack On Titan (from KOEI TECMO) is out now for the PlayStation 4, Xbox One, PlayStation Via, PlayStation 3 and Windows PC.
