Better than most Diablo copies, but still not as good or bug-free as the Blizzard original, Titan Quest is a solid choice with its own distinct advantages. Just make sure your PC has some great specs, and get ready to do some walkin' on your way to greatness.
The second is at Games Radar with an overall score of 9/10:
If you've been missing the genre where left-clicking does all, boy does developer Iron Lore have a gem for you. Take three parts top-down hack-a-thon and zero parts plot and out pops Titan Quest, the ultimate in slicing, dicing, and literally hurling monster-fodder around the screen. Pick a gender and listen to the "okay, we'll have one if we must" introduction about those pesky Titans that Zeus imprisoned suddenly breaking free, then you're off to surf bawdy throngs of satyrs, spiders, centaurs, and myrmidons as you pinball from city to city in search of the ultimate gear and the coolest monster to kill with it.
The third is at 1Up with an overall score of 7.7/10:
While it may not break, or even dent, any new ground, Titan Quest features a beautifully realized game world based on a tried-and-true core mechanic, with tons of replayability. What's not to like?
The fourth is at GameSpy with an overall score of 3.5/5:
Is the world ready for the second wave of Diablo clones? Probably not. But as for occasional romps that make heavy reference to PC gaming's old habits (has it really been that long?), well, they're more than welcome if they're as well-conceived as Titan Quest. The game is long, its systems are well done, and it's quite nice to look at. And most importantly, it has legs.
And the fifth is at Game Informer with no overall score:
Overall, Titan Quest gets the job done. It doesn't really do much to bring the genre forward, but it doesn't necessarily screw things up either. I had a lot of good classic fun with the game, and it felt like I was always equipping something better or learning a sweet new spell. For those looking for a solid summer RPG that you can play with friends (that isn't WoW), Titan Quest seems like just the thing.
