this game is awesome i really love it , i wish if the english version well come sonner
This game is amazing!
I cannot imagine a better way to implement the difficult 3D maneuver gear into a game. I would have never dreamed that the same guys behind the Musou genre, known for pitting one guy against an army, would so perfectly make a game about an army trying to take down one gigantic guy.
The game is Japanese only (unfortunately), but anyone who watched the anime will be able to enjoy it nevertheless. It takes a bit of getting used to the menus, but after a short while you will be zipping around the city, killing titans and buying upgrades for your characters.
The map takes direct inspiration from the musou genre, as does the mission structure. But the feeling is different. Here there is an urgency, as your comrades are being killed left and right. You get distress calls asking for help, sometimes with plenty of time (someone is simply pinned down by Titans) sometimes with almost no time (someone is already grabbed and on the way to being eaten!).
There are several characters and they differ wildly from one another. Armin is weak and barely able to scratch a Titan, whereas Levi is godly and can zip around the map fast while destroying any titans on his way.
Controls are great. The cables from your gear attach realistically to the environment and your character reacts accordingly. So if you are on a flat surface, horses are the way to go. If you are in a city landscape and you attach your cables properly, you can use the momentum to swing around and get anywhere super fast.
At the same time, you need to manage your gas tanks and blade durability, just like in the show!
This thing is addictive. Mowing down titans does not get old.
About the Vita version, obviously the graphics are very much inferior to the PS4 version. Textures are not impressive. There is pop-in. The trees are Ps1 quality. However, performance is flawless. Barely any frame rate dips even in intense action sequences. Movement is fluid and the graphics look great for a portable device. Light years ahead of the 3DS version.
In sum, if you are a fan of the show, rest assured that this is an amazing game that does the source material justice. One of the best anime based games I have played and I cannot wait for them to make a sequel based on the upcoming season 2!
+Each character is unique.
+ It feels just like the anime.
+Swinging around and killing titans is exhilarating.
-Framerate suffers during heavy action.
-Default controls are not intuitive.
-No english subtitles.
I know it's a Japanese version and the english release is in the works, but for as popular as Attack on Titan is in the west. It is shame we couldn't get some subs during the story. Especially when the story bits have already been subbed in the anime.
Great gameplay overall. If you can't read Japanese, you are going to be missing out on all the awesome story bits and struggling with menus. I am happy with my purchase though, and I will buy it again when it comes to the west.
Despite looking repetitive its satisfying to kill each and every titan. Once you master the combat and movement system, you can totally destroy and titan and its limbs consecutively without touching the ground. Movement is awesome, its very satisfying to gain momentum moving around in the city.
You ride a horse outside the wall and purchase better horses. You can upgrade abilities and both upgrade and craft new weapons, hilts, and maneuver gear.
There are ten playable characters + one playable male titan. Eren, Mikasa, Armin, Levi, Hanji, Connie,
Krista, Sasha, Jean, and Erwin. Each character has different attributes, strengths and weaknesses (e.g. Levi and Mikasa do major damage).
I wish they included Petra as she's probably the most aesthetically pleasing female character besides a smiling Mikasa(if that even exists).
In story mode you alternate between Mikasa, Levi, Armin, and Eren. It's a pretty good story mode that covers the major events through season one of the anime and ends with the female titan arc. The final battle between titans was awesome as you could completely destroy the city while fighting. Cutscenes are well done an interesting. I recommend killing all the titans and complete the sub objectives instead of just doing the main objective, as it lengthens the play time.
I did see a lot of poor textures on screen when I stood still and looked into the forest, some strange intersecting lines would appear. Though you are meant to play this game with a sense of urgency and speed so it's not a big deal, you'll likely not notice this.
Multiplayer/Co-op hasn't been included yet, but I hope it comes soon. Saving you friend from a titan would be much more satisfying than saving an NPC.
In its current state(pre multiplayer) I'd give it a 9/10.
I would recommend holding off until co-op gets added. However, if you are a big fan get this game now and enjoy slicing titans with your favorite character!
