    A.O.T 2 is a game that will delight every fan of the series, as it’s loyal to the first part and at the same time innovates by putting the player in the shoes of a new character and in the way of explaining the facts. At a technical level, it’s true that it can be improved in several aspects, but it’s totally compensated by its fun, large amount of content and its cooperative and competitive online modes.

    Casual gamers are going to find a lot to love in Attack on Titan 2 (A.O.T. 2). The controls perfectly suit the action, and make Titan-slaying or just swinging around quite fun. There's also plenty of satisfaction to be had in the pursuit of better gear and special skills. However, those out there who want to get the most out of their purchase are going to have a lot of work to do.

    While it has plenty of flaws, Attack on Titan 2 actually presents a surprisingly compelling package. As an adaptation of the anime, it does a good job of capturing the series’ signature sense of action and as a game in general, it presents mechanics and ideas that are entirely unique. The game’s issues with repetition and presentation would likely make it tough to recommend to all series loyalists, but given the gameplay, it becomes a much more interesting experience that might be worth checking out to those looking for a different sort of action game.

    If you’ve played the first Attack On Titan you’ll have to contend with replaying the first season of the anime/manga again, but the sequel does a much better (and more comprehensive) job of bringing the canon to life in a different medium. Combat is fast, frenetic and exhilarating, but it can get a little repetitive when played with AI teammates. However, camera issues and the occasional drop in framerate aside, Attack On Titan 2 is one of the best action adventures on Switch and the closest we’re going to get to another Monster Hunter on a Nintendo console on the West - for the time being, at least.

    The fact that it recycles so much of the 2016 game’s material means that in order to get to the new season 2 content you must first wade through a rehashed story mode with its dull sidequests and tedious dialogue choices.

    AoT2’s Switch port is an admirable effort, but there are just too many concessions made to get it working. The developers had the chance to go the extra mile to use HD Rumble while flying with the ODM but the implementation is lacklustre.

Just bought the game today and played for about 4 hours. I never played the first game so everything in this game is brand new to me. So far the game is really fun (moving with the 3d maneuver gear is very satisfying and makes you wish you could do that in real life). The single player campaign mode follows the source material very well so far, and going through the story is as fun as watching the anime, maybe even better from time to time since you get to control a soldier and slay some titans :D As for the sounds, the voices are the same as in the anime, the only thing that is missing in my opinion is the music from the anime. I really look forward to completing the story and trying the other game mode (and trying it online). My only disappointment so far is that there are downloadable skins that can be purchased from the eshop, but they cost way to much in my opinion (after buy the game at full retail price, i don't really wanna spend 50$ more to get 16 skins) but since those are just cosmetics this shouldn't matter much in the end, as the game is already fun as it is Expand

    This game is a great expansion of the anime/manga. Seeing the plot unfold through your own create-a-characters eyes is a great feeling. TheThis game is a great expansion of the anime/manga. Seeing the plot unfold through your own create-a-characters eyes is a great feeling. The combat is extremely fast, addicting, and can also get pretty tough in some instances. Graphically, the game looks decent on the Switch, but the view distance is a little bit short meaning you get a fair amount of pop-in and titans not loading (more noticeable in portable mode). Performance-wise, the game does tend to drop frames when there is a lot of action and titans in the area, but it only drops for a second or two which doesn't interrupt the combat at all. There is plenty of content for you to enjoy and the game never feels stale. All in all, this is a great game, but with a few more optimisation tweaks this game could easily be a 10/10. Expand

The combat is addictive and fun,it make you feel like some samurai spiderman. The different type of titans really make the game very challenge but I was hoping more maps and better graphics. The game lost frame rate in some battle section when too many stuff going on screen.And the online mode help extend the game's value after you beat the story. For the fan of the manga, this is a must buy. Expand

    Rating: 7.6 (Above average but not great)

    + Pros
    - Cons
    ! Additional Note

    + You get to kill titans! That's all you do besides side missions like escort, defend (an area, or a building, or allies), and capturing titans. If players expect more than these, prepare to be disappointed.

    + Town life: Players roam around towns to interact with characters from the anime to obtain new skills.

    + Character creation/customisation: This makes the game even better. The first game felt like a story-telling experience as you play characters from the anime. In this one, you create your character and be a part of the story and feel immersed. The character creator is not shallow nor deep however. But it's there.

    + Variety of equipments (weapons, ODM gear): Though different equipments comes with different stats, they are pretty much cosmetic in my opinion as players can upgrade the stats in the long run with materials. Pick whichever that looks good on you.

    - Titan clipping with environment. This is infuriating and annoying as each execution uses precious gas. Often times, I aimed for the nape and titans will clip through buildings or other stuff like trees, thus canceling the execution which wastes gas and time. (Missions are timed, complete them fast for better rewards)

    - Allies (A.I.) are most of the time dumb. I've had allies got themselves eaten by titans. But worse is during escort missions where they constantly ran into the fence and got themselves stuck. Which is also affecting 'time-rewards' for the mission. Yep, time is important in this game.

    ! The Nintendo Switch version runs pretty well and acceptable to me but there will be slow downs which players may need to get used to.

    ! Titans pop in happens as the draw distance for the Switch version is poor. May or may not affect the players enjoyment, will leave this here for everyone's info.

    ! Performances and graphics look the same whether on handheld/tabletop mode or docked mode.

    Do I recommend this game?
    For the Switch? Yes, no doubt! If portability beats graphics and performance, then the Nintendo Switch version is great. Bonus for docked mode.

    If you have a PC or PS4/XboxOne: Personally if I owned one of these, I'd get the game for one of these systems instead. The game can be really fast and a higher frame rate would be nice.
