Well, Attack On Titan fans, where do you stand? On December 25th, Koeitecemo released a series of gameplay trailers for the upcoming Attack On Titan game that's slated to be released Feb. 18 in Japan for the PS Vita, PS3, and PS4. These clips have generated a debate amongst the Attack on Titan fan community and it seems that gamers are fairly divided on what the trailers have to offer.

Some are pretty excited about the prospects of this adored Manga series getting a worthy representation in the video game world, others aren't impressed by what's on display. Let's refresh our memories.

Attack On Titan Game - Gameplay Trailers Divide Fans

The Attack On Titan game will give us large open areas in which we conduct epic battles with some of the various Titans from the manga series. It's attempting to deliver awesome gameplay features while remaining faithful to the narrative and characters of the series. However, while these efforts are commendable in writing, watching the results of the title's development cycle has left some fans fairly disappointed:

  • This is really disappointing, the physics are totally screwed up, the Titans don't even seem to fight back, you're not supposed to be flying... Levi literally stopped moving in mid air to side boost.
  • It bothers me a lot that the 3DMG ignores physics and gravity completely. Seriously, they should add a little weight to the characters so that they can't change directions mid-air so easily, or stay more than 5 seconds flying in the same spot.
  • I was really looking forward to this, but I now I see that they're just making a Dynasty Warriors clone. So sad.
  • Yep, it looks terrible.

But of course, with bad impressions come good ones. A lot of fans are impressed with what's on display and have been vocal about their excitement to get their hands on the Attack On Titan game:

  • I really can't wait to play it! Just pre-ordered the Japanese PS4 version :)
  • Man... they actually get covered in the blood from the titans... wow, lol. Seriously though, I can't wait for this game.
  • OMG when I get my hands on this and I'm able to play as Mikasa I think I will die. I love SNK and Mikasa so ehh yeah I'm buying this shit.
  • I'm really looking forward to playing as Levi. He is a beast. The Elite gameplay mode looks really fitting for him.
Me, however, I join Divinehand123 over on Playstation Lifestyle when they stated that it "Looks cool, but I'm afraid of it getting repetitive quickly." Me too. But where do you stand on the Attack On Titan gameplay footage? Let us know in the comments below!
