Video Review

Ranking:

While playable characters and Titans are animated lovingly, and watching a Titan flail about as it loses more limbs is strangely satisfying in a morbid way, the game absolutely uses its speed as a way to cover up some sparse environments. There's some light pop-in, too, which is a bit of a shame. It's certainly not an ugly game, but it does feel a bit lacking in detail in places.

Audio Review

Ranking:

The music on offer ranges from fairly generic rock to some absolutely incredible tunes that benefit the game's oppressive atmosphere terrifically. While there's no English dub, the anime's Japanese cast all reprise their roles here and all perform really well. It's unfortunate that I ended up hearing repeating dialogue during missions more often than I'd like, but it's a minor point against it.

Final Thoughts

'Attack on Titan' focuses on a single idea and nails it absolutely perfectly. The game runs the risk of feeling repetitive at times, but it smartly mitigates that by injecting enough variety into each mission and playable character. While the game isn't without its flaws, at its best, it's an extremely exciting action game with some of the greatest movement mechanics I've ever seen. 'Attack on Titan' is both perfect for series' fans and a terrific game in its own right, and absolutely shouldn't be ignored.
