REVIEWS Titan Souls Review
Titan Souls isn't much like Dark Souls, but the Prepare to Die tagline still works.

Oh boy, a new Tales Of game? Gosh, I hope it will be a high-fantasy anime-styled JRPG... that would be so unique.

Bloodborne's apparently successful launch (see note below) has yielded two interesting points, for me.  One is that it's being hailed as the PS4's savior (see note below) and the other is that it seems to have serious technical problems.  Conversations erupting around...

M What do these ratings mean?

This game is the best 3rd party game currently avaliable on the Wii!! Yes, it may be pretty much the same Godfather game as before, but if it ain't broke, don't fix it! What they have done though is to hotwire the orginal into a real masterpiece! The motion controls are amazing and you really REALLY get into the action of the game, a whole host of gestures really show that the Wii's motion controls are ready for whatever the gaming world wants to throw at it! There are some graphic issues here, but you won't have a chance to really notice them! The world around you feels alive and true to the era, some reviewers will bash this game because it doesn't have all the mod cons (or should I say Mob cons?) of the GTA games.........Well yeah! its set in the 1940's!! This is definatly the most realistic game played in the GTA style, you really feel that the NPC's are ment to be there, not just the token spawns that are most often cannon fodder for just another 10min spree of violence. The plot IS good and your addition to the family is nicely understated, no showing off taking the place of the other Coreleone's but insted, helping them out as a good mobster should!. Anyone who is pissed off because they can't play as Michael or Sonny has missed the point! this is about YOUR inclusion into the Coreleones, not just a total and thoughless movie script rip!! The fist fighting is great, this is one of the very few games Ive played where I prefer NOT to contantly carry a piece! So much fun to be had "Stiching loaves" on shopkeepers!! The shooting engine is remarkably good for this style of 3rd person GTA game, there can be issues with NPC running into walls, but the work gone into your shooting is stellar! Your ability to shoot from cover is sooooooo much better than the "stand in street, holding trigger" of previous GTA style games! Add in the ability to knee-cap and disarm, not to mention the MASSIVE array of executions and you have a real gun fight on your hands, right down to the last bullet! For me, this game is better than GTA SA, the world isn't as large, but the possibilties are endless. If you love the Godfather, buy this game! If you enjoyed GTA but found it too mindless, Buy This Game! and if you want to use the Wii for what it was built for BUY. THIS. GAME.
