Fun experience that tries to bring new gameplay

homes223 | Feb. 5, 2014 | See all homes223's reviews »

Off the bat Titan Quest feels like Diablo 2 on steroids and better graphics with a hint of ancient feel. TQ sports tons of gold and items that are usable but most items if aren't your character's class will just be sold. Gold is plentiful in this game and is practically useless after lvl 5 because there is so much of it. The skill and level up system is another copy but has some cool features even though a player has to play through the game more than once to unlock most of the useful skills. TQ also has a cool portal feature that instantly spawns a portal to an already visited city if your inventory is full or you are in trouble. Downsides of Titan Quest are too much gold and no free flowing camera. Crashes and sounds problems can also occur while playing TQ. At the end of the 20+ hour Titan Quest it feels as if the makers used D2 as a base and just added on making it a good game but not quite a classic.

A game worthy to stand in the Action RPG history

drakso | Jan. 15, 2014 | See all drakso's reviews »

As most of you know, Action RPG games are a thing these days, and for a good reason. It is a great combo, for both RPG players and for casual players that want to deep in to the RPG waters. This game is a great start for that. It is an old title but its damn good at what it is. The game has a mythical world theme and it looks like it was inspired by Greek mythology at most parts. The graphics and animation quality are great for an old title like this. The quests are mostly interesting tho it can get a bit repetitive at times. There are a lot of items and gear, but most of them are pretty similar to one another. Also, the classes are a bit off balance and you would find your self in a better position with one class than the other. But those are minor flaws, overall the game plays well and I recommend it for anyone that wants to dip in the action RPG games.

Good, but not great

nightassassin1 | Sept. 1, 2013 | See all nightassassin1's reviews »

This game will remind you of the Diablo franchise. It follows a similar play style with a brighter theme. You still enter caves and dungeons of sorts, however most of the fighting takes place during a well lit overworld by day. The equipment system is pretty much the exact same as Diablo and the fighting system is about the same as well. You wander the world taking quests from towns people ranging from driving out evil creatures to hunting down boss monsters. The co-op play is much better than singleplayer. The singleplayer is a nice adventure, however it gets very repetitive and boring very fast. This is a game meant to be singleplayer, but ended up being much better in co-op. I personally did not like it too much compared to Diablo and it didn't have much of a story in my eyes. Nonetheless it was still a decent playable game so it gets a mid range score and I do not quite recommend it, but it is worth a play at a good low price.

One of the best ARPGs

Oblaque | Aug. 21, 2013 | See all Oblaque's reviews »

One of the best ARPGs. Granted, buying items is irrelevant (same as in Diablo 2), areas are not randomly generated, and inventory is a bit harder to manage. The expansion improves so many things, and makes the original game seem weaker. I love the ability to develop classes in-game and adjust tactics, which works great with co-op. It makes the static classes of Diablo seem ancient. I'd say the difficulty is on par with Diablo. I've played the game for 100's of hours with different class combos, and the biggest issue is the repetitive nature of levels after playing so much. But join up with friends and work together to push through faster. It would be nice to start on Epic difficulty with levels under your belt, since that is where the game really gets good.

Smart, solid, beautiful and inspired

darkyhbk | Aug. 10, 2013 | See all darkyhbk's reviews »

Only good things can be said about Titan Quest, despite its being an obvious Diablo II follower. However, I feel that not only does it perfectly use the given formula, but it also improves on it, making the final product even better than the aforementioned game. Its graphics are stunning, since it was a visual marvel when it was released back in 2006. The textures offer high details, the shading effects are top notch, and the physics engine is perfectly implemented. Moving around also moves vegetation, while killed enemies fall down and roll down slopes very believably. The very varied landscapes of Greece, Egypt and China are beautifully rendered, offering a number of really artistic and beautiful areas. Big plus here. The sound effects are solid, believable and diverse enough to make the game experience enjoyable, and the music is very fitting, varying smartly from location to location and ancient land to ancient land. Although some of the voice acting included does feel a bit shallow or uninspired, the narrator does a great job, and does not hinder the overall experience in any way. The game itself offers more than 25 hours of gameplay through diverse locations, an unprecedented number of different enemies and bosses which again vary from location to location. In Greece you'll fight harpies, and encounter mythological creatures such as Nessus or Polyphemus, in Egypt you'll fight mummies, and in China you'll go against jade figures. The loot is also numerous and makes the game addicting, as do the many different skill trees and class combinations available to you. All in all, this is a fantastic experience for both mythology enthusiasts and RPG fans alike, and, for me, it's the best hack'n'slash game ever made.

A timeless masterpiece

Guardian412 | Jan. 25, 2013 | See all Guardian412's reviews »

A timeless, highly polished, beautiful, very-very long (32+ hours only for the core game) and sometimes also difficult ARPG. This is what the new games in the genre always wanted to be, but never been. Titan Quest has an entertaining mythological story with a great lore and atmosphere, lot of diverse and memorable enemies, huge maps of great ancient cities and four ancient countries to explore. And while this game is six years older than the newest games in this genre, Titan Quest is much better in everything, be it character classes and skills, primary and side quests, item sets and even the graphics, which is sharp, realistic, colorful and stunning. Despite of its age it is much prettier than the newest games in the genre. Titan Quest is the best in the genre and if you like ARPGs and mythology, it is highly-highly recommended!

A must own for loot fans

Antix | Jan. 23, 2013 | See all Antix's reviews »

Possibly the best loot oriented game after Diablo 2, Titan Quest brings the hacking and slashing to mythology. The game is spread out across three Acts: in Greece, Egypt and China. The controls are as responsive and snappy as they need to be, multiple difficulty levels, humongous amounts of unique loot to be had and the presentation is top notch with pleasant music and graphics that hold up extremely well even today. Gameplay-wise it has everything you'd expect a good Diablo game to have and it is simply the best looking 'Diablo clone' game released to date.

The most interesting thing about it is it how it lets you mix and match classes. You can just stick to one class or create a new class by picking two and choosing the abilities that compliment your playstyle the most. The game has 9 base classes, which means you ultimately have 81 character classes at your disposal. You can shape your playstyle in some amazing ways, it's all up to you.

There are a few issues to this otherwise excellent game, however. There are no dedicated servers for co-op play so make sure you play with a friend if you want co-op. Also, the enemies and the environments are not randomized and completely static. That also means the areas are hand-crafted and beautiful all the time but in a game like this, the randomizer is probably more important to people but due to the huge amounts of variability in character classes, I dare say the game's replayabilty doesn't suffer for it.

Fun in co-op.

Xgoesrawr | Jan. 22, 2013 | See all Xgoesrawr's reviews »

Its a good game for both co-op and singleplayer however I found it to be more fun in co-op.

I like that there is a lot of possible class combos.

There is a few downsides however as it can be repetitive and pretty unbalanced at times. I have heard there is a fan patch to fix things but I've never tried it.

I'd suggest playing this one with friends for a better experience.

A solid Diablo type action RPG [Steam version]

wondrous | Dec. 31, 2012 | See all wondrous's reviews »

I think many ppl get this game in the last Humble Bundle, and here is something about this game: The game is released when COD 2 was out, the developer has been closed years ago, and the publisher files bankruptcy now... So you think this game is outdated and terrible? NO. The game has everything a diablo-type RPG game should have. You have a tons of career paths, various pets in which some is as good as a bug (of course to the enemies) and equipment enchanting, etc. The story line is better than many fictional products (the first title comes across is Clash of the Titans film...and 2), because you will fight through ancient Greece, Egypt and silk road and each place is well polished. The multiplayer part is even better causes you most likely need to adopt an appropriate career path different from the one for single player. Last, there are tons of resources and forums about this game. you can find mods, tools and even fan-patch collections purely to balance and debug the game after the developer was gone. Wait, I did this review specifically for steam users. Bad news: you can't use most of the tools and mods as they are for retail version of the game only. Steam version even has a different version No. Without them, and if you haven't bought the Immortal throne expansion, you have tons of disadvantage such like limited vault size. However, you can check my explanation in this thread: http://steamcommunity.com/app/4540/discussions/0/846939071463664704/ I showed how to enable the two amazing tools,TQvault and TQdefiler, for steam version.

Solid hack'n slash

panz3r88 | Dec. 22, 2012 | See all panz3r88's reviews »

Titan Quest is one of the best hack'n slash games ever created. Like in many other game of this kind you will have to face hordes of monsters and continue to look for powerful weapons and objects. The game allow you to choose between various classes to create a good fighter. The story of the game is not really important like in other games of this genre and allow you to visit various Greek locations. There is also a multiplayer mode that allow you to do various quests with your friend

Enjoyable Game

Woundead | Dec. 11, 2012 | See all Woundead's reviews »

A well made Hack-and-Slash/Action RPG. Very similiar to the diablo-series, you kill monsters and they drop items and gives you experience. You level up and get more skills. The setting of the game is more 'real world' mythology based. If you like games like Diablo, you will enjoy this guarantied.

An addictive

thewhitewolf | Aug. 27, 2012 | See all thewhitewolf's reviews »

This is a pretty nice hack and slash game with elements of a strategy game. One of the reasons why this game is addictive is mostly because of its amazingly big open world to choose from. From weapons and armor, quests and monsters to cities and places.

Like every other RPG, this game has interesting quests which make it an even better experience.I myself enjoy boss fights which can be easier or harder depending on my gear. Hey ! it even has COOP if your'e not the lone wolf type of guy.

Overall this game is worth its price (and since it was on sales there's no reason not to try this game).

A good strategy-RPG game

Gh0st233 | Aug. 20, 2012 | See all Gh0st233's reviews »

Titan Quest is a very good strategy-RPG "hybrid" game, from one of the Age of Empires developers. Now, Age of Empires is my favourite strategy game, and the plain fact that this comes somewhere to it, makes me like it even more.

The combat is pretty basic but fun, and the graphics are not that bad, tho the game came out some 5 years ago. The game is, actually, quite lenghty, and if you get into it, you may be in for a replay. Also, a great feature this game has, is definitely, the co-op functionality. Hop in the game with up to 5 of your friends, and enjoy the game at its fullest.

Titan Quest is definitely worth checking out, especially if you like strategy or RPG games.
