I haven’t played the first Attack on Titan game, but to be honest it doesn’t really matter to this sequel. I’ve seen the Anime, after so many people tagged it as the next big thing, and I loved the concept. I was less keen on the giant naked Titans, with their seemingly endless toothy grins.
Thank goodness this game allows me to strap into the ODM gear and swing through towns, slicing the napes of these nightmare creatures. I had the chance to become a member of the scout group, alongside Eren and other characters from the show, and kill Titans.
Attack on Titan 2 isn’t just about killing giants – though it will take up the majority of your time – there are also some nice little RPG elements here too.
Titaning your grip
Fighting alongside squads of people builds friendships, which can then be heightened outside of combat by talking with them and training together. Doing so boosts your player created avatar with unique stats or special moves.
