While the combat is undeniably enjoyable for the first few hours, it inevitably devolves into mindless repetition – and even if you can get past that, it’s a slog to play through what feels like a copy and paste of the first game in order to get to anything new. Further disappointment comes from the addition of an original character who doesn’t do anything to shake things up in these earlier sections of the game or add anything of significance to the overarching plot. If nothing else, A.O.T 2’s a good way to experience the story of Attack on Titan, albeit with the absence of smaller details. If you haven’t played the first game and are curious about how a video game adaptation of A.O.T could turn out, maybe try this to see if it’s for you."
