The original game was quite good. Good graphics, enjoyable game play, relics/charms and masteries to make unique characters. It's a straight forward hack and slash game that is very liner and an ok story.
The expansion not only adds one more Act (to the originals 3 Acts) but also adds two new masteries, a new Artifact system, a place to store items for later (or transfer to another character you have), and the ability to seperate placed relic/charm. These changes really fill out the original game and make an even better experience.
At the cost of the Gold edition this is the way to go if you are buying Titan Quest for the firs time.
The down side is that you can't save your progress anywhere. You can save your character and loot, but not your progress. You have to reach the next rebirth fountian to be able to come back to that place. On the plus side they are normally pretty close together so you don't have to back track alot.
Also you are on rails, which can be a plus and a minus. It's meant to be a stright through action point A to point B game. It's a really good one at that. But in a environment where most games like it have more freedom in thier worlds, places to explore and side quests that really are out of the main quests way, you end up coming to expect more from your RPG/Action game.
But what this game aims to do it does well. And I've enjoyed both the original and the expansion.
The game is a typical hack and slash adventture game. Major quests with 'side quests' for experience points and loot. The more enemies you kill nad quests you complete increase your experience points to go to higher character levels which will give you a stornger/smarter/faster character and more loot to sell and purchase better weapons/armor/magic items. Most armor and weapons have 'slots' to piece together fragments of magical enhancements that add additonal functionality. Once you complete all the pieces, a bonus is also added to the armament.
The game flows quite well and the graphics are done nicely. Been working fine on my Vista 64 Dual Core 4GB memory system and have been enjoying playing the game.
* Includes all patches on disc * Epic adventuring in the ancient world * Stunning 3D graphics, with an amazing level of detail and realism * Addictive, fast-action game-play * Custom, definable character classes and modifiable skills Great game. Huge replay value. Create a Spirit/Nature character and find an item that a Warfare/Defense character would love? There is a transfer vendor who moves items from character to character quickly and easily. Accidentally spend a skill point on something you hate to use? A merchant can untrain it for you for a reasonable fee. Includes nine completely unique skill sets (Nature, Storm, Earth, Defense, Warfare, Rogue, Hunter, Spirit, and Dream). Pick two skill sets to determine your class. Pure genius. This game has everything that Diablo 2 missed. Yes, I said it. Diablo 2 has faults. It is as much fun to watch him play as it is for me to play myself. Creating characters with different attributes and combinations is spiffy. Even for the novice player, it is not very hard to pick up the concepts of staying alive and moving forward. I have a terrible sense of direction so the map is a lovely thing to have so I don't spend all day wandering about and retracing my steps. The game is addicting so it helps to keep a clock handy. We don't play on-line with others so I cannot speak to that. I do like this one tho a great deal.
If your reading this before Diablo 3 comes out and you really like Diablo 2 then you will really enjoy Titan Quest. The graphics of Diablo 2 have become a bit dated and while its still a great game, Titan Quest is so very similar and does many things much better.
Things that Titan Quest does better...
-graphics, higher resolution, zooming the view
-map is much more detailed
-rag doll physics
-2 different classes are played on the same character at the same time
-no loading screens when entering/exiting structures
-magical items just pop up everywhere
-enhancements/charms can be added to most items (not just socketed)
Things Diablo 2 does better...
-randomly generating maps
-zero or next to zero bugs/glitches
-much more advanced online community
Many people will say they like Diablo 2 more and others will say they like Titan Quest more. Bottom line is they are very similar hack and slash games, Diablo 2 just being legendary and Titan Quest just being a more updated version of the genre.
This game is a hybrid between the concept of Diablo 2 (dungeon and loot grinding) and the interface of WoW (like the game or not, the setup is enviable). Needless to say, any game based on a blizzard game, done right that is, has to be good. Titan Quest delivers a great experience with amazing visuals and engrossing details. If you loved Diablo 2, as I did, then you will be pleased to grind your way this this game too. With the surprising number of class combination you can create, the replay value is also quite high. While the game's publisher is no longer in business, there is a cult like following of talented players that keep this game up to date and fix any bugs that come up. In short, buy this game!
