When I heard that the team behind the Dynasty Warriors series was working on an Attack on Titan game, I thought I was in for more of the competent, but predictable, gameplay which made the series famous.
If you’ve played the DW games, a lot will be familiar here. There is a roster of different heroes who have unique skills and you traverse a giant battlefield killing as much as you can in order to single handedly turn the tides of war in your side’s favor. That much stays the same.
What sets it apart is the amazing movement options. The Omnidirectional Maneuver gear allows your character to zip across terrain with effortless ease and makes you feel like you’ve been planted in an episode of the anime. Killing titans with your friends in multiplayer is a blast, and the progression system for leveling up your character/equipment is addictive.
