  • Summary: From the co-creator of Age of Empires, Brian Sullivan, comes an all-new action role-playing game set in the mythical worlds of ancient Greece and Egypt. The Titans, gods before the gods, have escaped from their eternal prison to wreak havoc on the world. In this titanic struggle between old and new gods it is the heroes of humankind who will ultimately determine the fate of all existence. The player quests throughout the ancient world in a race to uncover the secrets needed to once again imprison these ancient gods. Journeying to fabled locations such as the Parthenon, the maze at Knossos, the Great Pyramids, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon, the player will have to overcome terrifying monsters and mythical beasts. A flexible class system allows almost limitless ways for the player to develop their character. Skills can be customized in many ways, and never become obsolete. [THQ] Expand

  1. If you love RPGs, then this title is a must have for any PC gamer. With the right hardware, it offers better graphics than any game in its genre to date, with a really nice set of monsters that will sometimes scare you right off your mouse.
  2. A solid approach to the Diablo formula. The game gives you a lot of flexibility with regards to your character, it lets you play online if you want, and you can create your own maps and quests. Add to this a stellar presentation and it’s hard to fault the game.

    While Iron lore deserve kudos for the much-needed tweaks, it's a shame they didn't take more ambitious chances and really push the formula to new heights. On the plus side, if you liked "Diablo II" or "Dungeon Siege II," you're sure to love Titan Quest. It is, after all, almost precisely the same game.
  4. As addictive as the gameplay can become, the comprehensive (albeit complicated) modding software is sure to trigger compulsion in the more creative players.
  5. Boasting over 30 hours of play time, multiple difficulty levels and an online component, Titan Quest offers enough gameplay content to make it worth a look.
  6. Titan Quest fits the bill for a solid action RPG that gives you what you'd expect but nothing beyond it. It seems content enough to be big, and if you like Diablo-inspired games, you'll get what you'd expect from an isometric role-playing title based in ancient Greece.
  7. I can't give it as good a grade as I'd like to because of the installation issues, and it's not an original concept but it still manages to be a fun little game.

    I think that people need to give the whole "It's like Diablo" thing a rest for goodness sakes we all know that Diablo was a great game series and still will be with the release of Diablo 3 but to be honest I had more fun playing Titans Quest, for many reasons one being the fact that it has much better graphics, and yes I know Diablo is older but thats the idea people think new don't dwell on old stuff, Blizzard did not patent the over the head game play and THQ just did it better I think, and the being able to zoom in on the person was pretty new, and I bet money that Blizzard will use that idea in the new Diablo. I give this masterpiece a 10/10 Expand

    The most beautiful Diablo-like ARPG for the past few years. It's simply fun and addictive, provides you a journey with both Western and Eastern mythology. You can build whatever character you want, for example, a warrior wielding a staff, or a rogue with a spear. Anyway, it's awesome but after you finish the game several times, you will feel a bit bored 'cause the multiplayer mode isn't good enough. I recommend Titan Quest: Immortal Throne too. The game would have much more fun if you have them both. Expand

    Titan Quest is an underrated game. While it isn't the most original game, it is a solid, fun game that is very enjoyable. The story, while not the best, was good enough to keep me going. However, if you're looking for a deep, involved story, you won't find it here. The best part about this game, in my opinion, are the class combinations available for you to use. They accommodate and enhance many different kinds of play-styles, For someone like me, who likes to experiment and tinker with different builds, this adds a lot of replayability to the game. The graphics are actually not too bad and have aged extremely well over the years. Do yourself a favor and give this a shot, if you haven't. If you like hack and slash games, you owe it to yourself to give Titan Quest a chance. Expand

    Titan Quest is a good game. Well....sort of. But i certainly wouldnt give it a 10/10 nor 6/10 - 7/10 seems reasonable. Why? Okay the graphics: They're good, not recent but still good and the world is very beautiful and all. Gameplay: Okay, first time you play TQ, its really fun and you really get into the RPG mood but the second time you play it, knowing the quests and stuff, it just isen't all that great. The combat can be rather boring and some items are ridicously overpriced. 80%, if not 90% of the game is all about battling seemingly endless hordes of strange monsters, continous and monotonous left mouse clicks with little strategy depth. That said, it can be fun upgrading your character with new weopons, gear and armour and new spells. But overall, it isen't 'classic' or 'legendary' or even 'amazing' - its good. Expand

    Though literally tons of Diablo clones in general are already around, Titan Quest seeks to actively interest people that haven't heard of any of these "other" Diablo-esque titles. It practically banks on it even, given the fact that it shared an Xbox platform release as well as a PC one. Of course here is the kicker, the punchline, the ultimatum: Its Diablo II. No the weapon names aren't the same, and hey level design, you get my vote for being a little more terrifying (for how much more limited and claustrophobic you feel). The animations are well done, combat works fine, and goodness me it is a pretty game years after its release, but what isn't compared to Diablo 2 at this point. Unsurprisingly, these games have become rather rare, since most people have moved on to other game series or banished themselves from ever seeking out Diablo ever again, which is probably good as I'm sure that I myself do not need another hour-draining experience like Diablo 2 ever again.

    Only played this game for a couple hours so far and it has been nothing but frustration. First problem is trying to heal in a fight. Nearly every time I click the heal the cursor then disappears and I can't target my char so end up dying a lot. Second problem is also with healing but when not in a fight.. Cursor doesn't disappear but it may as well since it takes repeated attempts to heal my char because it constantly heals my pet even when it's 5 feet away and I have my char targeted.

    Third problem is seeing loot. Holding ALT only shows some items on ground. Still have to run cursor all over to see everything. Fourth, there is no char customization at all. It's just "here's a male, here's a female". Could have at least had 2 or 3 of each with different looks to choose from.

    Waste of money on an unplayable game.
