Titan Quest Switch Review
Review: Titan Quest (Nintendo Switch)
Titan Quest is one of the better "Diablo clones" to come out in the wake of Blizzard's hit action RPG. It was originally released in 2006. While it retains much of the Diablo-style hack-and-slash combat, deep character customization, and the intense combat, Titan Quest swaps that for a more classical setting. Players will travel through Egypt, China, and ancient Greece to hunt down a number of rogue giants.
You can expect solid gameplay and lots of action. It's a wonderful job to bring a game designed originally for the keyboard and mouse to your handheld console. It's a great addition to the game, but you will still need another controller or Joy Cons for this feature.

Titan Quest assigns you the role as Helos' warrior and is responsible for investigating an increase in monster activity. As it turns out, a group of titans long since imprisoned following their defeat at the hans of the Olympian gods are fighting to break free, and they're the reason for the sudden abundance of harpies, myrmidons, centaurs, and other such mythical beasts. You have to stop them. This will take you across Asia, Egypt and ancient Greece.
The plot isn't particularly engaging. This problem is compounded by the small dialogue boxes, which are hard to read and scroll at an incredibly slow pace. However, it's not important other than creating a lovely and relaxing environment for hacking and slashing.
Titan Quest is all about hacking, slashing, and that's the core of its appeal. It plays it close to the classic Diablo formula, with a simple combat system that mostly involves mashing away on the Y button to carve your way through hundreds of enemies that assail you. The combat system isn’t particularly deep but you have the option to see the entire battlefield from an isometric perspective. You can use this to your advantage and not get overwhelmed.
Titan Quest's depth and excitement comes from your levelling up, learning new skills and collecting an enormous amount of loot. You can learn many different skills through "masteries", this is the game's version to character classes. Warfare mastery focuses on melee combat, Nature on defensive and support magic, Hunting on ranged combat, and so on.
Original release on PC. Then ported to mobile platforms. First released in 2015. THQ Nordic's Diablo-clone Titan Quest was a decent success on PC. Its mix of Greek mythology, deep character progression, and Greek mythology gave Blizzard’s iconic RPG a good run for its money. Earlier this year, Titan Quest made its way onto Xbox One and Play. The results were as expected for Station 4. However, while it scored well in reviews and was appreciated by genre fans, it wasn't a huge success. With the exception of the fact that the Switch version has Titan Quest again, and there are no lootathon-ARPGs on Nintendo’s latest console, it is expected to get similar responses.
Titan Quest follows the same pattern as Diablo III, Dungeon Hunter II, and Sacred. Here you are the protagonist, a relatively weak character, thrust into a war against powerful gods. Your strength will increase through increasing your XP, looting the enemies and purchasing new weapons and equipment. Action is presented from an isometric perspective, and a zoom-able camera lets you get super close to the nitty-gritty as you swing swords and hurl spells in your quest to level up as quickly as possible.
This version of the Switch brings little new content to the table. The campaign is available online or solo and contains the same content as in the other versions. Unfortunately, touchscreen inventory management is not available in the Switch version of 2016's i. OS. The main issue was with this version's framerate. I found that it is significantly faster on Switch. (I noticed more slowdown and stuttering than other versions, but this isn’t an advantage.) This might well have been what made this version stand out above the PS4 and Xbox One. Instead, they work just like the previous console versions. Titan Quest Switch is capable of video recording, but it's not essential. There are other versions that do it, and there is no reason to buy another version.
Essentially this is a bare-bones port of a decent hack 'n' slash action-RPG. This is the biggest attraction. If the Switch is the primary console or your only one, you won't find much else to rival it in terms looting or levelling. However, Xenoblade Chronicles 2, Octopath Traveller, or Battle Chasers Nightwar might better serve your RPG needs.
Titan Quest Nintendo Switch Review – Feels Familiar In A Good Way

$39.99 USD PS35.99 GBP Game code provided by THQ Nordic for review Like many of you, I grew up playing Diablo 2. For me, it was a game which I was able to dive into and spend many hours of my youth being completely invested in primarily because of the vast array of weapons to find and the immense depth provided by the stat investment system and the highly customizable skill trees. Ever since the Switch was released, I have kept an eye on games that would allow me to relive the magical experience of Diablo II. However, there has been no game yet that can do this. Until now.
Titan Quest launched originally on PC in 2006. At a time where Diablo lovers were desperately seeking a different experience, it was also released to the PC. Finally, in March of this year, the game was brought to consoles with a slight delay for its Switch release. Many fans felt extremely disappointed by the buggy Xbox One and PS4 versions of this game. However, the Switch version was finally released after the delay. This allowed for many bug fixes to be made for other consoles.
While it may be a little old, the game is still well worth your time and money. You can read our Titan Quest review to find out.
In ancient Greece, monstrous mythological creatures have overrun peaceful villages. The evil Satyrs or Minotaurs have taken over the country, destroying both villages and social stability. Gorgons have taken over temples, turning valiant heroes into stones with their petrifying gaze. Great heroes are born in times of terrible catastrophe to face the evil. It is all about this underlying theme.
In ages long past, the gods of ancient Greece sealed away powerful, malicious beings called the Titans who desired nothing more than to see the extinction of the greatest creation of the gods: humanity. A trio of strong sorcerers known as the Telkines were one of the Titans. These Telkines had the ability summon all kinds of unearthly foes. In order to beat the Telkine threat, you must explore the actual world of Greece with the help of some Telkine-infected sorcerers.
This game's story isn't the primary focus. It is there to help the player on their journey and provide a motivation to visit different places in order take down the creatures of lore. This game does not aim to create deep connections with the story. Instead, it is about going out to kill monsters and gather loot. It is still quite charming to have the game set in real world locations, and use the mythology from those locales as inspiration for monsters.
Titan Quest Is A Huge Game
You won't find many waypoints around cities. There is also not much you can do to get there quickly.
There are no randomly-generated worlds. A linear journey that takes you around a vast and varied world is what you'll find. You will discover a waypoint in each city that will enable you to travel back. There is usually only a handful of places between the cities that you need to explore and eliminate enemies. The layout and type of enemies in your maps is not randomly generated. This keeps every run exciting and fresh. You won't find way points in each one of these locations like you would in the Diablo series, so quickly jumping back to specific locations doesn't work here.
You will discover Rebirth Fountains as you travel. They activate whenever you approach them. They are essential to your progress, as they will activate when you approach them. It is important to not lose your Rebirth Fountain. You may have to go back a lot from the town that you last visited. Online gaming presents one of my greatest fears. Use a town portal to reach the players ahead and behind you. When you activate a Rebirth Fountain to create a new one, you lose your current one. It can lead to a significant setback, and it is what I consider the biggest flaw in this Rebirth Fountain game.
Titan Quest was a huge game that I enjoyed immensely. I must admit, I was only able to complete the game for about 20 hours. I spent 18 hours completing only the first four available acts. That is insanely big! Diablo 2 is an example of this. You can go from the first act to the third in Diablo 2 in just 8 hours. The time spent on the first act was nearly twice what it took. Going from one waypoint to the next can take quite a while, so I was pleasantly surprised by the size of this game. The game is quite challenging, and you can expect to be on a lengthy journey.
*This review was written by Brian Myers for switchwatch.co.uk Music is not at the forefront of this experience. Oft, it is just the sounds of fighting and the screaming of monsters that lead to the exploration. Music from the local region may be played to improve the experience of exploration. It is important to establish the mood with music and sound effects.
