My Thoughts

My teens got to try out the Attack of Titan Game. My daughter is a big fan of the anime show, so she was exited to immerse herself in the game and become of the characters she's so attached to. 
You can choose between several different popular characters, including Scouts Eren, Mikasa, Armin and Levi. You travel though the world and defeat the giant titans along with your team. She has only made it through a few levels so far. It's challenging and exciting, and will provide hours of entertainment. 

This game is rated M for mature. This is some violence, but it's not gory like some other games. It's appropriate for teenagers, but not younger children. It's all about action and the quest for survival. The story line stays reasonably close to the show's first season, and the graphics are great. It really brings the show to life.  This is a fun game that any fans of anime are going to enjoy.
