"Koei's latest not-a-Musou lives up to the source material."
"On that day, mankind received a grim reminder. We lived in fear of the titans and were disgraced to live in these cages we called walls."
Forget boldly going where no man has gone before -- this future is so bleak that men don't go anywhere anymore. Humanity has been confined to a single city, trapped behind three very tall, very thick walls. These massive barricades weren't built to keep the humans in; they were built to keep the towering titans out. No one knows where these creatures came from, but everyone knows they love to dine on human flesh.
Even in these dark times, mankind still has its pride. Determined to reclaim a life beyond the walls, the remaining men and women have formed an aerial military unit that employs wires, grappling hooks, and sharp blades to zip through the air and slice through the titans' bodies. It's a violent world, but that's my kind of world. Attack on Titan lets me escape from the office cubicle so that I can fly like a superhero, soaring above leafy treetops and across steampunk cities like a sword-wielding Spiderman.
