The Titans have escaped from their eternal prison to wreak havoc on the world. In this titanic struggle between old and new gods it is the heroes of humankind who will ultimately determine the fate of all existence. Journey throughout the ancient world in a race to uncover the secrets needed to once again imprison these ancient gods...

Titan Quest allows the player to journey to fabled locations such as the Parthenon, the maze at Knossos, the Great Pyramids, and the Hanging Gardens of Babylon. Here you have to overcome a number of terrifying monsters and mythical beasts. A flexible class system allows almost limitless ways for the player to develop their character. Skills can be customised in many ways, and never become obsolete.

You start the game as a novice warrior (you can choose to be either male or female) from a small farming village in Greece. Here you must train your character up in order for them to be able to eventually confront the Titan gods who have escaped and are all set to seek revenge on the world. Once you've chosen your skills you can venture across the globe in your quest to ensure good triumphs over evil.

The most impressive aspect of this game is how huge it is. While there are obvious paths to follow to complete your quest, you are actively encouraged to wander off and explore the game in your own way. And don't think that by doing this you'll simply be spending hours attacking monster after monster that looks identical to the last one you slaughtered, because these change depending on your surroundings.

And, while the single player game is engaging enough, players can drop in on numerous online games where they can team up with other gamers to go on various quests. And should you at any time crave a little extra, then this game also allows you to design your own environments and quests - which is a great addition for all those that like spending hours creating their own virtual environments.

If you're looking for a great hack and slash RPG, then you could do a lot worse than Titan Quest.
