Fans of the anime and TV show will appreciate the detail of this game, but technical issues and repetitive play make it an average adventure at best. If you're a fan of the TV series, you'll no doubt appreciate the amount of detail put into this Koei Tecmo adventure. The developers cleverly and successfully infused the anime and manga series' look, environments, and story. Also, while the game borrows elements from the Dynasty Warriors catalog, Attack on Titan doesn't feel like the franchise was shoehorned into an existing gameplay mechanic. In other words, the game makers nailed the look and feel. Controlling the game feels good, too. It's fun, fast, and gratifying to swing over the tops of forests, towns, and other areas to look for giant Titans to hop onto before you begin to take them down one by one.
The problem is that repetition between missions tends to wear down the appeal of the game. While not all missions are the same (for example, you'll be tasked with escorting soldiers through a forest on horseback and protecting a structure on the map), some objectives are more fun than others, but they're not very unique or memorable. Boss characters also aren't very challenging. After a couple of hours, you might not be so keen playing, unless you want to go online and play some co-op with your buddies in Expedition mode (actually, you can get around quicker alone, so not everyone likes the multiplayer mode). While the graphics are decent -- if the naked human-looking Titans don't creep you out -- the game does suffer from some technical glitches (such as losing half a character's body in other objects) and from slowdowns in frame rate depending on what's happening on-screen or how close you get to the giant Titans. In other words, the game is decent, but some extra variety in gameplay and some time spent massaging out some technical issues would've made Attack on Titan a more justifiable game to invest in.
