    Aside from Diablo itself, the clones of the genre have largely slid right back into mediocrity, and I have to hope that a new Titan Quest could be the shot in the arm that can revitalise the interest that genre fans have in it, outside of Diablo.

    While I started out frustrated, every hour I invested in Titan Quest paid off in full. The joy of watching your ordinary hero turn into a remorseless murder machine, hemorrhaging elemental power in every direction, can’t be overstated.

    This new release -- cosmetically better but lacking the overhaul that would really help the game stand up to current titles -- doesn't go far enough. I wouldn't go so far as to call it a cynical cash-grab, but I am disappointed that it not only fails to make the original Titan Quest experience much better, it adds some additional flaws and strips away some of the potential for enjoyment.

    Titan Quest was better remembered as a decent hack'n'slash on PC than a mediocre Diablo clone on consoles: this version is clearly rushed out and it doesn't do any justice to a title that's been fun and engaging for the last twelve years.

    If you really want to have it on the console (maybe on Switch, to always carry it with you), wait for a price drop.

    High price, low quality: two of the worst things to have in a single remastered game.

    Titan Quest is a lazy port of a glorious PC action RPG. The genre is respected and executed efficiently but the game is immersed in poor interface design and tons of bugs and glitches.

PS4 was lacking those kind of games. Finally a game where gameplay is in the first seat, graphics aren't bad. Great fun with friends, easy to invite and join. Hours of fun. The game came out march 20th and I already have over 10 hours of gameplay. Expand

    Spring 2020: THEY FIXED IT!

    Finally, the game is in the shape that it should have been at release over 2 years ago. Now that 98% of the potential players have been driven away by constant bugs and crashes, they finally got around to (mostly) fixing the game. I still get a crash like every 20-30 hours, but that's much better than when it was happening every 20-30 minutes.

    I also bought the expansions, and I've had the PC version forever, and I can say that it's a good port. It's too bad that they waited until the game was marked down to $5.99 and got destroyed in the reviews before they fixed it. Better late than never I guess, but I'm sure they lost a huge amount of money by waiting over 2 years after release to get it in a playable state.

It's a Diablo clone which dates from the time after Diablo 2, when there was no Diablo 3 on the horizon, people wanted more Diablo, and many devs sought to fill that void with their own Diablo clones.

    Titan Quest was one of the better Diablo clones, with a nice Greek mythology setting (granting it the ready-made, comfortably-familiar bestiary and lore that goes with that) and the same simple but compelling gameplay loop of receiving quests, revealing maps, clicking on lots of monsters until they die, looting their corpses, levelling-up, and repeating. It's a fondly-remembered game on PC, and the PS4 game is the recent "remastered" version that updated the graphics and incorporated the PC game's expansion.

    The PS4 port by Black Forest Games (of Giana Sisters: Twisted Dreams and, er, Bubsy fame) unfortunately fumbles the move to consoles quite badly. The frame-rate is iffy, the text-size is painfully tiny, but the biggest problem is the controls.

    Devs like Runic (Torchlight) and Blizzard (Diablo) have produced excellent console ports of exactly this same genre of game, translating the mouse and keyboard controls to joypad with an elegance that made owners of the PC originals want the option of joypad control adding to their versions. Sadly, the same can't be said of Titan Quest.

    A recent patch has addressed some of the issues that you'll see mentioned in the reviews. Your character no longer takes a moment to start moving, and no longer continues walking for a moment after you release the direction, and the analog-stick movement controls feel better for it.

    However, the targetting is still a mess. If you press attack, your character attempts to pick a target - and, more often than not, runs past several closer enemies to get to the further-away one that he's chosen to attack. Typically for this genre, there are many situations where you'll want to take out certain targets as a priority (monster-generators, etc) and the game's messed-up auto-targetting choices will fight you every step of the way. There IS a manual targetting option, where you hold attack and point a targetting "cone" in the direction of the enemy that you want your character to attack, but it's an inelegant solution and the game still rarely targets the enemy you had in mind. It's a shame the devs felt the need to reinvent the wheel (badly) because Torchlight and Diablo III had no such problems with joypad controls, and those games always seemed to intuitively target the right enemies.

    So, what you have here is a fairly straight-up port of an old(-ish) PC game that's showing its age in various ways (design, environment interactivity, graphics, etc), which hasn't been tweaked in any way to cater for console gamers (that text-size!), and which has had the translation of its controls fumbled quite badly.

    It's a game that's basically all about fighting, but which has a broken targetting system that makes fighting a frustrating exercise in watching your character run halfway across the screen to attack the wrong enemy instead of the simple pleasure it ought to be. There's a chance the targetting could be fixed in a further patch, but the bottom line is: you're better off playing this on PC if that's an option.

The game is nice enough and I have put in roughly 150hrs so far.

    Pros:
    - Looks nice, espec with the 4k patch that also fixed UI
    - Decent enough story - not great but decent
    - Fun loot system
    - Acceptable battle system

    Cons:
    - Characters get stuck - not just the playable one
    - Strange glitches and stuttering
    - Crashes ALL THE FAKEN TIME JESUS FAKEN XRIZT (!111!)
    - Several key trophies broken including critical - game-breaking ones such as game completion trophy. If you are like me and enjoy trophy hunting then STAY AWAY!
    - It's just pretty damn terrible over all.
    - Well... I mean if you managed to read this far then... you kinda get the point by now.

    3/10 for extremely low effort
