What do you think about it?
For me it seems messy.
But a nice concept and nearly works as I would want it.

I can't decide whether I want to buy this yet or not....... I mean I just bought Deus Ex and NMS recently so I need to keep an eye on my expenses and all, BUT....... I'm not sure if this'll be worth the asking price- might wait 'till it's on sale.
I've heard it's crazy fun in multiplayer, though, and I can see why that'd work. Anyone bought it yet willing to give an objective opinion?

at least from that video in OP.
I already see a problem with stun lock or having many on one titan, makes it a spam feast.
Where the engangment is more fun and swinging around is the core of the fun you would have + having spots to attack or get better at controlling etc?

Else, I have not buyed it but mostly out from the video.
Keyboard controls from reviews seems to be negative so a controller is "needed".

Something I would wait for more updates, or sale on steam/humblebundle?

I held off on the game because I'm worried it might be a textbook "cash grab" game. That said, it seems to at least be getting decent reviews on Metacritic and it is developed by Koei Tecmo, so it's probably something I'll definitely purchase on sale someday.

Anyone tried playing this online on Xbox One? My game keeps crashing when I click "Join" and when I attempt to set up my own game no one joins. Add my GT: Mikasa and let's see if we can get a game going through game invites.

Ok, so I caved and bought it on Steam. I'm weak and silly with my money, I know.....
Anyway, after 5 hours of play I'll say this..... It's actually rather good. It follows the anime really closely- even down to things like camera angles and particular shots at times (although that one moment involving Mikasa and Titan Eren turning up was nowhere near as epic as the anime.)
Combat's very satisying, although it'll get repetetive before long- pretty much everything I've done so far has been 'go to place and kill titans.' Moving around with teh 3DMG (or Omnidirectional movement gear, if you prefer) is pretty good too, if a little rough at times. More than once I found myself flying into a wall because for some reaon I wan't able to gain enough height- but when it all works, it looks really cool. I haven't played online yet, so I can't comment on that- haven't been able to connect.
All in all though, I'd say..... yeah, wait for a discount. As good as it is, I'm not sure I'd pay £40 for it again.

Really liked it. But Short as heck. It dissapointed me in how short it was. I completed it all in one sitting... (Not counting the challenge stuff, just the story stuff.)

It ends


I think it was too early for a full fledged game. But the game is amazingly fun. I just wish there was more meat on it.
