Titan Souls Reviews
Titan Souls is antagonistic and alienating, but if you are masochistic enough to put up with it, there's a smart and original game underneath.
The problem I am finding with Titan Souls reviews is that they mention Shadow of the Colossus far too often, anyone who has played SOTC knows that it is an amazing game, one of the best on the PS2 in fact, TS is nowhere near SOTC but it is still an amazing game and I will tell you why.
A fleeting, exhilarating slice of boss rush madness
Titan Souls earns its rightful place as one of the toughest games of all-time and while some will immediately fall for the elegant yet simple design and alluring fantasy world, others may be turned off by its unrelenting difficulty
Titan Souls is a pretty solid game, but I can see where it may not gel with some players. There is quite a bit of difficulty to it as you have to learn each titan's patterns and figure out how to expose and attack their weak points, and others may just see this as a rip-off of Shadow of the Colossus. If you can get past that, Titan Souls provides quite a bit of challenge, but admittedly could have gone on a bit longer for a $15 price point.
Overall, a great series of fights and fantastic music and sound design ultimately let down by its lack of content in the long haul.
If you are looking for a short, reflex based battle of bosses than Titan Souls might be a right fit. But if you want something with gameplay versatility, or character progression then you better roll away now.
Titan Souls was a tough and a well-fought battle that I enjoyed from beginning to end. Even though it had me raging at times, the thrill of taking down the Titans one by one gave me an immense feeling of satisfaction. While it is a relatively short experience (I was able to finish the game in just over six hours), it was worth every minute.
Titan Souls is a brutal and breathtakingly elegant boss battle bonanza, but it's difficult to find a satisfying rhythm thanks to a host of inconsiderate design decisions. What starts out as wholesomely frustrating can quickly become infuriating and even surprisingly repetitive.
Titan Souls is a throwback game from the team at Acid Nerve that plays heavily on two aspects.Nostalgia, and masochism.
Painfully unsatisfying for what its ambitions suggest, but a well-crafted boss rush and a solid example of masocore gameplay outside a platforming format nonetheless.
There's no denying that some gamers will enjoy their time with Titan Souls.
'Titan Souls' offers an enjoyable torture as players take a series of incredibly difficult Titan boss fights with limited mechanics and only a single arrow.
Simple, strategic combat and an assortment of unique bosses make for intense bursts of gameplay that will keep you coming back for 'just one more go'. And another. And then one more.
Titan Souls can be fun to begin with, and although there aren't any noticeable bugs, because there are so many things I found annoying, I can't say it's worth it if you're just wanting a good time.
Great soundtrack, intuitive controls and challenging boss fights make up for Titan Souls' short length and lack of narrative.
Don't get me wrong, Titan Souls isn't a bad game, it's just noticeably lacking. If players are just looking for tough, often short, battles that involve one hit kills, then this is the perfect game.
Our first hour with Titan Souls was fantastic, but after that the cracks start to show. It's not a bad game, and the atmosphere is excellent, but you'll get to the end knowing that it could have been better. The lack of information about the world makes you feel like you're just roaming a random castle or tower, like those Mega Drive roguelikes where the only goal was to get to the end. The length and price just help to make this excellent idea more unattractive.
After my playthrough, I can safely say that while this is certainly no souls game, it's one worthy of the time of anyone who seeks a truly rewarding challenge.
