For as long as I can remember, I have always been a fan of the “hack and slash”-type action role playing games. I started out years ago playing Diablo, and eventually purchased Diablo 2 and all of the add-ons. Since Diablo 3 isn’t slated to be released for a few more months, I started looking to see what other games would quench my thirst for a new ARPG game. After a bit of googling, I came up with three possibilities:
I read a bunch of reviews on the web, and decided to pick up a used copy of Titan Quest. I’ve only spent about 12 hours playing the game, but I can safely say it stacks up to the Diablo series in almost every way! It’s got the hacking and slashing I’ve grown accustomed to, there is next to no learning curve, and all of the controls are very intuitive. Given that I only paid $8 for the games with shipping on Amazon (if you are looking for CDs, movies or games, check out the “used” links on Amazon! These will save you a lot of money over the long term), I am super happy with my purchase! If you are aware of any additional games that fall into the ARPG realm, please leave me a comment! I would love to hear from ya’ll!
