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.
