ESH | Omnidirectional Fun in ‘Attack on Titan’

Turn­ing any kind of licensed series into a video game always seems like a ver­i­ta­ble mine­field of expec­ta­tions from both fans and license hold­ers. Land­ing that per­fect bal­ance isn’t impos­si­ble, but it’s usu­ally the excep­tion and not the rule. Since it first hit my radar, Attack on Titan has always seemed like it would be a per­fect fit for the trans­la­tion into a video game. The Omni­di­rec­tional Gear of the the show looked like a ton of fun to blast around a world and slice the napes of some giant’s necks. There have been some unsuc­cess­ful attempts prior to Koei Tecmo’s Attack on Titan game, but finally the series has been done jus­tice and there is a fun game set in the uni­verse of the acclaimed anime series.
