Review: Titan Souls (PS4/VITA)

Titan Souls (5)

Between our world and the world beyond lie the Titan Souls, the spiritual source and sum of all living things. Now scattered amongst the ruins and guarded by the idle titans charged with their care, a solitary hero armed with but a single arrow is once again assembling shards of the Titan Soul

Cons:

  • Lacks any real depth.
  • Frustratingly hard.

Titan Souls (4)

In Summary, It is a great little game and does pose an excellent game idea. I feel sometimes its lacking with no real depth like leveling or even new attacks, It is only the bosses themselves that ever change. That said you can still get fun out of it and it does push your limits in every way. If you don’t swear at least once in a session then you are playing it wrong. Its a game I personally would drop into every now and then and appreciate what it offers, But as a stand alone game it falls just short of a must have. In short, Great idea, great concept but needs more.

Gaming since the Atari 2600, I enjoy the weirdness in games counting Densha De Go and RC De Go as my favourite titles of all time. I prefer gaming of old where buying games from a shop was a thing, Being social in person was a thing. Join me as I attempt to adapt to this new digital age!
