So at the end of the day, Titan Quest fits the bill for a solid action RPG that gives you what you'd expect but nothing beyond it. It seems content enough to be big, and if you like Diablo-inspired games, you'll get what you'd expect from an isometric role-playing title based in ancient Greece. It's fine to expect more though, and for such a big meal, it's not as filling as it should have been.
The second is at GameDaily with an overall score of 4/5:
Following in the footsteps of its forefathers, Titan Quest holds to a formula of locales, of stats and skills, and of destruction. Yet somehow at the same time, it has escaped that formula set down so long ago in many ways. The game offers a hell of a lot of fun, and with a very different enemy than we're used to seeing. With eight interesting classes and the ability to multiclass, plus dozens of hours of fun this is a title worth recommending to anyone still silently hoping for Diablo III.
The third is at The Bovine Conspiracy with an overall score of 7/10:
To conclude as I began, Titan Quest is Diablo in ancient Greece (and Egypt and Asia). It's a great update to a classic, and if you're one of the many people still picking up Diablo 2 every few months, it might be finally be time to move on. Titan Quest has more options, more loot, and way prettier graphics, and all the hacking and slashing is just the way you remember it. Even if you weren't a huge fan of Diablo, then this is a nice action RPG that will take up a good chunk of time. There's not a lot new here, but it hasn't been presented with quite so much flash since, well, ever.
And the fourth is at Ace Gamez with an overall score of 7/10:
Titan Quest is a good game, but not a great game. If this had been released three of four years ago it would have been heralded as a real contender for PC game of the year. However, as times have moved on and 3D RPGs such as Oblivion have taken the gaming world by storm, top-down RPGs like Titan Quest were always going to suffer. Having said that, for those who realty dig the Diablo and Baldur's Gate vibe, this one is right up your street. Great value with over forty hours of gameplay and plenty of stuff to keep you playing into the wee small hours, Titan Quest offers some unabashed old-school fun, but if you've got a 360, buy Oblivion and watch your leisure time drip away to nothing instead.
