The game is for those people that enjoy Zelda and the other retro-themed RPG look a like games. I played it for a couple of hours myself, gotta say I'm impressed.
Shadow of the Colossus is actually one of my favourite games ever. That game was unique, and there is no other game that made me feel so weak and fragile against those living mountains we had to face. Titan Souls is very similar to Shadow of the Colossus in many ways, but in essence it is just the opposite. The game from Team ICO was an epic journey, and this one is just a frustrating one. The game is difficult in a way that you don't want it to be. You have to die dozens of times at each one of the bosses to learn from their tactics and patterns. It will take some time to reach its weak spot and end the battle with a well aimed arrow. Sounds good, but it is not. Every time you die, you have to backtrack to the boss from the checkpoint. Yes, this journey is usually short, but when you've died more than 10 times you feel it longer and longer. Titan Souls has a huge map and nothing else on it rather than the titans waiting for you to be found. Sometimes you will miss some areas and, once you've completed the game -you don't need to kill them all to do that-, you will have the feeling that you've missed many parts of it. Once done -in just a couple of hours- new challenging modes unlock making it harder. Pointless. Music is awesome, and it has some good boss fights, but I was extremely disappointed by this tittle.
Titan Souls is heavily inspired by Shadow of the Colossus. The concept is exactly the same : to complete the game you must find and kill all the bosses. This time there are 19 guys to slay and the visuals are more retro than before. However, Titan Souls is slightly better than Ueda’s game. Why? Because the time you spent between each boss fight is a bit shorter. No boring escapade in the countryside this time. You can storm through each door quite quickly! The graphics are, as I said, retro. It’s pixel art and it looks good. The camera is a bit far away from the character but that’s necessary. The musics are excellent. Titan Souls is a fun little game which has the merit of “fixing” what was wrong in Shadow of the Colossus, in my opinion.
Titan Souls is simply a 2D version of Shadow of the Colossus. Your goal is reach and kill several bosses. There's nothing else to do, but this doesn't mean the game is empty. With Hard mode, the challenge is here, providing additional hours of fun.
I want to like this game. But, sadly I just can't... Ignore my Steam counter my end time was a little over 3 hours. (played offline) PROS -Wonderful artstyle bosses are 3D while everything else is 2D helps the bosses stand out. -Bosses feel unique Whether it be a Mushroom boss, that if you walk in it's gas your screen changes colors. Or a Yeti where his unprotected behind is his weakspot. -Great soundtrack Walking through open and desolate areas is a pain, at least the calming soundtrack helps make it not so horrible. -Unique concept "One shot, one kill for me AND the bosses?!" CONS -No story (?) It feels like there should be an epic story behind this, and if there is... it's hidden. There are little hints at a story found in caves in such, but still no idea if the devs had a story for this. -No progression system. No leveling. No upgrades. No story. No way to really tell. -Big open areas feel utterly useless No point in exploring if I won't find a secret item, or EXP, or a new quest, etc, etc. And walking 15 minutes to find new bosses is a pain. I would of much rather enjoyed having a hallway, and just having boss doors lined up or something similar. -Frustrating I like a challenge. But I like my games to be fun! This game starts to feel like a chore after awhile. Please note if you are looking for something similar to Dark Souls, you will not find it here. Thanks for reading!
