*Trailer is at the bottom of article if you so choose to watch it before reading.*
So I was going through my facebook minding my own until I came across this article on my feed (www.dailydot.com/geek/attack-on-titan-playstation-new-trailer). As it turns out it's an article about the new trailer for the upcoming Attack On Titan video game coming to Playstation4, Playstation3, and Playstation Vita, which is a bit surprising to me because I have to ask Playstation exclusive? Well initially we thought Tomb Raider was going to be exclusive to Xbox and yeah nope, so who knows but the point is an Attack On Titan video game is coming and this trailer showed some gameplay and here are my impressions of it.
Well honestly....I've always thought Attack On Titan would be fun in video game form, the question is though however how to execute it? What kind of story should be told, and how many hours can it be? Executing the controls properly and recreating a decent looking representation of the show's animation style. Well, after looking at the trailer simply put I'm very skeptical at the moment right now. I saw the bits of gameplay footage that show up in the trailer for a few seconds or so, no implication of what story other than Eren and the Colossal Titan so maybe we can assume that it's the same story as the show but I wouldn't want to say that unless I know for sure.
The graphics to me came across as a more fluid animated Tell Tailed styled games honestly. The graphics didn't look that impressive to me in fact regarding to that the thumbnail above, that thumbnail was made by actual screen shots from the gameplay trailer kicked up big time in contrast and saturation. I tried my best to make it look as good as possible. I just hope I managed to do so because the graphics in the gameplay like I said aren't something to go crazy over. I wish animated based video games would improve their graphics in their games. If Simpsons and South Park can replicate their animated art style into their games why can't games like Naruto, One Piece and even Attack on Titan do the same? But anyway I digress, The combat gameplay controls looked interesting, the jet back line launchers that the characters use to get around it reminded me a bit of Batman Arkham Knight's Batmobile double burst in battle mode, and that's really the only similar comparable thing I can think of to give a general idea because as you can see line launchers, flying head first into a titan to cut it's arm completely off. I can't really relate that to another game that I have played and it looked awesome.
However though like I said, the skeptic in me comes out and makes me ask if the gameplay is really going to be that good. Are the controls going to be that responsive as implied in the trailers. How good is the enemy AI, will difficulty be addressed based on certain Titans you take on considering their are intelligent Titans. Is the game open world? Or is it just scripted sequences on a big map? What's the story about if their is one? Does it continue past where the show leaves off and goes into some elements in season two or does it stop when season one ends. Can we explore out side the wall? Can we go to where Eren and Mikasa's house where it all began like Crime Ally in Batman Arkham City. These are questions that I ask and why I'm skeptical. The video game industry has really played with my trust in recent years which is why I don't pre order any more. This game looks like an anime based movie licensed type of game based on what I saw in the trailer which is what worries me. But their reason for hope, studio Koei Tecmo (the guys who did the Dynasty Warriors series). From what I've heard Dynasty Warriors is a good game, it's also a game that Jim Sterling doesn't stop talking about and he's a guy I respect his opinions regarding video games so at least theirs that. So what do you the reader think of the Attack On Titan video game? Excited? Worried? Not interested? Please let me know below. Brace yourselves, the Titans are coming!
