Attack on Titan 2 Reviews
What they'll likely realize from playing Attack on Titan 2's campaign mode is how the game feels like a love letter to fans of the anime. While it doesn't do anything new in terms of narrative direction, it somehow gets the foundations that made the first game so fun and makes them even more enjoyable, this time adding a level of depth that makes players feel important.
Successful implementation for fans of the anime with rapid battles and great changes, that is still missing variety.

If you've played the first Attack On Titan you'll have to contend with replaying the first season of the anime/manga again, but the sequel does a much better (and more comprehensive) job of bringing the canon to life in a different medium. Combat is fast, frenetic and exhilarating, but it can get a little repetitive when played with AI teammates. However, camera issues and the occasional drop in framerate aside, Attack On Titan 2 is one of the best action adventures on Switch and the closest we're going to get to another Monster Hunter on a Nintendo console on the West - for the time being, at least.
A.O.T. 2 suffers some technical issues, but it offers enough action, story and content to please all the fans of the anime. It's also a good way for anyone else to discover this fantastic universe.

Attack On Titan 2 is by no means perfect, but the original approach mixed with a very satisfying combat mechanic makes this quite the March surprise. Just make sure you're ready for something a little different. It's not normal…
While it can certainly be considered the definitive Attack on Titan game at present, some peculiar design choices and the repetitive nature of the missions hinder it from achieving its full potential.
Everything considered, Attack on Titan 2 is an improvement on the first game in every way, but retreading old ground makes it hard to justify the “2” tacked on to the end. It's a great opportunity for anyone who missed the first game to get a far more comprehensive Attack on Titan experience, and there's definitely more content and improvements for those who did play it. I worry that its billing as a sequel may put off potential players, but you don't need to have any knowledge of the first game to get into Attack on Titan 2. It thoroughly covers the narrative line from the beginning from a slightly different perspective, and it's clear the development team took feedback from the first game very seriously. Whether you loved the first game and wanted more out of it, or are just getting curious about the series, Attack on Titan 2 is worthy of your attention. I just hope we don't have to play through the entire story again in number three.
Attack on Titan 2 delivers tons of bloody action and a surprising amount of depth that's sure to please fans of the franchise.
I enjoyed the premise of playing the story through new eyes and watching these events unfold. Also, taking the time to read the character's journal offers a new layer of immersion for hardcore fans. Attack on Titan 2 is a game for the fans, and the story does well to include critical scenes that those fans will readily recognize. After a few hours, I found that I had mastered the ODM gear and could quickly take down any Titan that came my way along with seamlessly issuing commands to my party members. I was glad to be having fun because this is just what I needed to hold me off until season 3 of the Attack on Titan anime.
Now, this is a proper anime game adaption. While making improvements over the first game, Omega Force has tightened the controls, made the screen less clunky and upped the amount of another. I would have liked the game to stray a bit more from the source material, still the title stands out of being what it is. It's fun, frantic and will keep you busy on ours on end, while you ou dish out some punishment to those darned Titans
Attack on Titan 2 might add to the story but it doesn’t change enough to make it a compelling purchase. With it feeling largely like the previous games, it feels closer to DLC than a new expansion. This doesn’t mean there isn’t any reason to pick it up, just don’t expect it to be a massive change from the original. Combine this with very little story progression, performance issues and not a lot of content and it’s a sequel even fans can skip.
This is an example of a sequel that improves upon its predecessor in almost every possible way.
Attack on Titan 2 is a great dive into the brutal world of Shingeki no Kyojin, and is a blast to play on the Switch. While held back by some annoying technical bugs, what's on offer here should be enough to appease both series veterans and newcomers alike.
Overall, Attack on Titan 2 is an improvement from the first installment of the series. This game will be enjoyed by fans as well as newcomers. I hope the game gets the attention it deserves. I hope to see continued growth as this video game series develops. My hope is that further entries will have more replayabilty and improved audio.
Attack on Titan 2 is a surprisingly solid Action RPG with unique combat mechanics and a traversal system that's probably the closest thing we're going to get to feeling like we're Spider-Man until Insomniac's take on the character drops later in the year.
Omega Force prove that lightning can strike twice with a stellar follow-up to their successful first Attack on Titan game
Attack on Titan 2 is a great game, it doesn't suffer the less power of Nintendo Switch and take advantages from its hybrid nature.

Attack on Titan is a fun hack-and-slash that well represents the Attack on Titan franchise
It may be an improvement over the first in nearly every way, but Attack on Titan 2 fails to feel unique. Playing as your own character is nice, but this sequel ends up as a very similar package to its predecessor.
AOT 2 is a decent sequel with solid gameplay, and of course it's a great feast to anime fans. However, dealing relationships with your companions is tedious and somewhat stupid.
