I enjoy the game, in fact I probably spend to much of my free ttime playing it -- my wife feels I should spemd more tme in exercising and making sure I can stay well ( I am 87 yeqrs old and mostly retired)
I look forward to compleing the Quest and starting on the harder quests -- I am nor at level 41 and still going strong.
This game mixes great fun with that anticapation of getting that amazing legendary item. Just the joy that you have slicing and slashing through hordes of mythological creatures, including Satyrs, Harpies, Cyclops, Typhon, the most powerful titan, and even the king of the underworld himself; Hades. You will not only enjoy fighting your most darkest adversaries, but also finding the most epic of loot. This game features thousands of different items you can find across the land. Speaking of land, this game takes place over Ancient Greece, Egypt, and Asia. At each stop, different opponents will greet you (by that I mean try and rip you to shreds). Not only is this game fun, but it is also a type of learning game. Like me, I found out about a lot of Ancient Greek mythology by playing this game. Most areas in this game are real places in this geographical area of the world. For example, in the first act (Greece) some of the towns include Delphi, Athens, Sparta, etc. The boss fights are also exhilarating. After almost every main boss there is a chest (or in some cases an orb) which can be opened, and in them are magical items that when dropping are completely randomized. Because of this randomization, every time you play, you should expect a new experience to emerge. Each time you play, you find new items, become a new hero, and save the world. The multiplayer works out fine, but when playing with friends, I recommend sharing your classes so that you can come up with the best class setup between you. What are the classes you ask? The classes include Storm, Earth, Warfare, Spirit, Defense, Hunting, Nature, and Rogue. Once you reach level two, you can pick your first class. Then, at level eight, you can pick your second class. After that, you will no longer be able to choose a different class on the same character. It's a fun game and truly does bring out the adventerous side of you. Mortals, save all of humanity in... Titan Quest!
EDIT: Multiplayer is no longer a key feature of the game. It will be required of you to install outside programs to play with your friends. Sorry if this may've been an inconveniance for you.

Very fun game. I'm very impressed that every monster in the game actually DROPS WHAT IT'S HOLDING! PLus it's nice to fight things other than the demons of hell. I just wish I played this game back in its prime!

This is one of my favorite games of all time. I remember being six years old watching my dad play the game and being full of fascination and wonder. i then proceed to replay it again at 8 years old only to get stuck on act 1. next up is 11 years old where i make it to act 3 and get stuck again. now im 15 and have finally completed the game and am currently playing it again. the amount of adventure and awe i have endured over my life with this game is beyond comprehension and it holds a special place in my heart. it may not be the same to new buyers but i HIGHLY recommend this game. 5/5, 10/10, 100%.

This is still, too date, the best action/RPG I've played, followed closely by Torchlight 2. TQ took the concept of Diablo 2 and expanded on it, succeeding far better than Diablo 3 did. The graphics were great, enemies difficult yet not impossible to defeat, classes were highly customizable and fun, tons of gear and items, and mods just added to the game. An inventory mod allowed you to duplicate items and gather a large collection of sets.
The only complaint I have about this game is the lack of level randomization. However, knowing exactly where you are going can be a plus. The expansion was a fantastic add-on and a must have for this game. If you like action/RPGs, this is a game you must play.
This is a game that definitely needed a sequel but likely will never receive one.

A guy walks into a bar and asks for a copy of Diablo 3. When the bartender asks why he wants Diablo 3 he replies by saying that he wants a good Action RPG game with lots of playtime and an online mode so he can have a jolly good time with friends. The bartender and everyone else in the bar hits him and kicks him out of the bar along with a copy of Titan quest because Diablo 3 sucks
Titan Quest is one of the best games from THQ. Personally i played hundreds of hours in Non-Steam version and i enjoyed every moment. This action RPG has something special-Greek,Egyptian and Asian mythology.Imagine this situation:you're just man with poor knife and you discovered there's big mess in near village of Helos.So you decided to help clean it.As others watching your progress they want to help with something else-it's start of your epic journey.It's amazing to see how your 'usual' character turn into one of the greatest heroes with powerfull spells,skills,weapons and armors.But way of heroes doesn't just walking around and helping people-hordes of monsters trying to kill you every single moment.And here you find another nice surprise-monsters are different to locations-in Greece you can see sathyrs,gorgons(like Medusa),minotaurs and in Egypt you can find some weird mix of men and scorpions,etc. Soundtrack is excelent too-changing with situations and i catch myself standing on the ground and just listening this masterpiece. Another amazing thing is-you can create your own story.You hear right-thanks to map editor you can upload your new quests,location and enemies.Also this game has multiplayer so you can save the world with your friends. If there's some minus it's stereotypical missions after time(save guy from monsters,take specifical item from tomb with full of skeletons) Status:pluses-story,graphic,soundtrack,multiplayer,quest editor minuses-stereotypical quests time to time Final verdict: 8.5/10 Incredible game.
