    Titan Souls might be Shadow of the Colossus' pixelated version but it knows how to deliver a painful yet satisfying adventure based on a simple premise: kill all the titans you can with a bow and a single arrow.

    It requires patience, a keen eye, reflexes and skill - and the ability to accept that you will die a lot. And sometimes it will seem unfair. And sometimes you will want to throw your controller at the nearest hard surface. But Titan Souls is a fantastic game; a fine example of what is possible with a simple idea, stripped-down controls and a dense atmosphere backing it all up.

    Titan Souls aims for achievers – gamers whose greatest joy is to fight hard with any challenges offered. And the game aims pretty well. [Issue#252]

    Tital Souls is a game that asks for perfection. It's a great challenge, a game where you need to try again and again, even though it lacks the immediacy of other skill-demanding titles.

    Titan Souls is a solid game that doesn't overstay its welcome, even if it feels like your skill might not be involved in every kill.

    Titan Souls strikes me as a time-wasting boss-rush that constantly tried my patience and delivered no enjoyable or profound climax—it just peters out and credits roll.

It's a pretty hard game and is not that long, about 4 hours of game play. But, you will enjoy trying to get the achievements that make the game pretty long, I mean it remains one achievements for me that's iron titan and I already have 50 hours of game play.
    I recommend you to buy it when is on sale and if you want to get the achievements.

The developers could have put a million hours into the game by making it a long and tedious adventure with a story getting to each boss, but instead they've given you just the meat and potatoes. The only complaints are coming from teen-angsty kiddies who know nothing about real gaming. Expand

    By the way, the music is AWESOME!

As you might recall from my last review, Keebles, I struggle with too much of a challenge and lack the patience to keep one’s controller intact after many cheap deaths. However, I was taken in by the sweet pixelly graphics of Titan Souls.

    The game opens with your little guy wandering around in a temple area, with just his bow and single arrow to defend against some pretty nasty enemies. I initially started out using keyboard controls, but quickly found that to be both frustrating and physically painful, so I spent an extremely irritating amount of time figuring out which console gamepad I could use. After several failed attempts, I managed to get my PS4 controller working with Steam and away I went.

    The first enemy I fought was a bouncing blob with a heart inside. It was clear I needed to release the heart from the blob, and then shoot it, but of course, it wasn’t that easy. Each time you shot the blob, it divided (and became more aggressive), and so you then had to contend with multiple enemies. After several shots, you could end up with a large amount of small (and fast) bouncing blobs each leaving slime trails to trap you. If you were hit by a blob, you were instantly dead. I spent far too long yelling at my screen about this, and nearly got to the point of giving up, but I persevered and it eventually paid off. And I must say: the satisfaction you get from destroying your first enemy after dying so many times was so worth it.

    Feeling like I was getting the hang of it, I moved on to the next enemy, which was a brain inside a block of ice. Again, this was a very aggressive enemy (sensing a theme here). A flame would regularly spurt from the centre of the room, and due to playing many RPGs in my life, I instinctively knew that I needed to shoot my arrow through the flame to hit the enemy’s ice shield, thus leaving the brain unprotected. I took out this enemy in short order and derived great satisfaction from absorbing its soul.

    The final boss of the level was a stone golem with two very smashy fists. One fist would pursue you, while the other protected a jewel in the golem’s chest. Some fancy ducking and weaving is necessary before expertly (or luckily, in my case) timing your shot just as the fists swap places. For some reason I thought that was the end of the game and I was considering it a bit of a rip-off, until I realised that no, there are more levels to play – the game has a total of 20 bosses, in fact. The doors to the first level opened, and in I went, stepping on a floorplate, to be lifted to a new area – one with far more places to explore and pixelly scenery to admire, including a range of different environments (I explored a snow area with a stark beauty).

    Despite my frustration at the difficulty of Titan Souls, I do understand that’s a big part of its appeal to many gamers. After 80 minutes of gameplay, my death count was 62, so that’s probably a good indicator of what to expect. The game requires patience and practice, and if you stick with it, you’ll be rewarded with a satisfying payoff. I would definitely insist you play with a gamepad because the keyboard controls are just not responsive and fine enough for some of the fast dodging and shooting you need to do. The gamepad gives you greater range of movement and your tendons will thank you later. The graphics are sweet and nostalgic, and the lilting piano score is subtle and ambient. Little touches like wind swirls, and trees swaying give a nice amount of movement to the scenery. Don’t forget to take a dip if you come across a body of water.

I foundI really wanted to love this game because of how much I liked shadow of the colossus, but it fell pretty far short of my expectations. I found myself getting super frustrated with some of the bosses. I think my problem with the game is just that the core mechanic (shooting the arrow) is too janky to perform predictably, and that meant that it took a long time to probe for any weak spots or to even just beat the boss even if you knew what the weakspot was.

En effet lorsqu'on meurt on ne respawn pas dans la salle du boss mais un peut plus loin, le trajet prend peut être 5 sec mais au bout de 10 morts il juste insupportable. Deuxièmement pour chaque boss il y a une certaine technique pour les tuer, sauf que je trouve très dur de trouver ces technique ce qui oblige à chercher sur internet ( vu qu'au début d'un boss vous aller mourir en 5 sec, après vous aller réussir à a peut près esquiver et ensuite vous chercher comment le tuer pour ensuite essayer de le tuer tout en vous tapant le trajet à chaque fois ) Expand
