This was after numerous recommendations from friends, many claiming it to be the best new anime series in recent years.
While I found it an enjoyable watch, I wouldn’t say that it’s one of my favorites, especially considering that the story is largely untold with the second season likely looming in the unseen horizon.
Still, knowing what “Attack on Titan” is all about, it feels natural that they would make a game about it.
What I didn’t realize was that they would task the folks at “Spike Chunsoft”, best known for visual novel series like 999/VLR and Danganronpa for the job, which seemed like an odd choice.
The result is a game that succeeds in feeling authentic to the source material, but fails in being a fun and interesting to play.
