While a minimal amount of enjoyment can be had listening to the wayfarers and tradesmen across the many worlds that the hero visits, there are too many problems that stem from the game’s now ancient design. While titles like Shadow of the Colossus can confidently hold their own in a decade that they were not intended for, it may be a bittersweet sign of the swift progression in the industry that most titles are just not good enough anymore.
In many ways, I’ve been spoiled by Diablo 3. The pace of that game is so breathless, it makes the rest of the genre look plodding by comparison. Yet there’s value in that measured pace. 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.
Despite suffering from some unoptimized console controls, bland combat, and boring level design, Titan Quest is a serviceable RPG in the vein of Diablo and Baldur's Gate. The ancient world setting is endlessly interesting, the Masteries class system allows lots of customization, and the huge amount of content is reassuring. Fans of hack-and-slash role-playing games will find something to like here.
