Ever wondered what it's like to be a dinosaur? Look no further, as Path Of Titans is here! But is it all it's cracked up to be?
What does Path Of Titans Entail?
Set in prehistoric times, you have the choice of eighteen dinos to choose from. Explore an expansive cross-platform MMO world filled with events, quests, guilds, adventures and free-form play. All the while trying to stay alive.
Customize your dino, unlock abilities and combat with each dino's unique skill.
What is Gameplay Like?
Choose whether you would like to be a herbivore or a carnivore. With the new update, flying and water dinos have been added. Customize your dino from a small selection of colours, looks and gender.
Once you've done with customization, you are taken to the tutorial cave. If you haven't guessed yet, it tells you everything you need to know to play the game. It's straightforward, easy to understand and follow. Then you are released into the wild.
So what to do once in the wild? Well, not a whole lot. Make sure you are well-fed and watered. Explore the map, with some quests that pop up now and then. Please don't get too excited, though, because all the quests entail is collecting a certain amount of items and then dumping them where needed. That's it. On the plus side, however, you get coins to spend in the home cave that you can decorate and expand.
I feel like home caves were added because there is so little to do in the game. Not that I mind, as it's always a bonus when a building aspect is implemented.
Then there's the multiplayer aspect. You'll either come across players that want to eat you or are willing to accept you into their circle. It's the luck of the draw. As a carnivore, I managed to make some friends. However, as a herbivore, I got chased and then eaten as soon as I came across some carnivores.
Graphically the game is stunning. The only thing I will fault is that the butterflies and moths look like sheets of paper. They did an excellent job on the environment and the detailing of the dinos themself.
My Overall Opinion
Path Of Titans is the most boring game I have ever played. So much so that I struggled with motivation to write this review because there was so little content to go off of.
I understand that they have gone with a realistic approach to this game. Dinos can only do so much, but come on. Moving a few twigs and keeping on top of needs isn't enough. Unless you are into roleplaying. Then, by all means, this is a good game for that. But if you are looking for a survival game packed with content, then this isn't it.
As for the water dinos, I thought they were even worse in content than land dinos.
If I had been playing this with friends, I would say my opinion would be slightly different from what it is now. The problem with the game is that you need players for it to be good. In this case, a lot of players and because it's a relatively new game, there isn't quite an extensive enough fan base yet.
Even though the devs have mainly focused on being an RP (roleplay) game, there could be a bit more variety when it comes to quests—something you could do as a group or on your own.
Therefore I give this game my stamp of...
