First Thoughts 

When I first noticed this game my first impressions on the look of it was that LOOKS GREAT, it just seemed funny, within the first 5 minutes of noticing it after playing the game, it wasn’t what I expected but not in a bad way the game is very different to what I thought it would be and in this review I am going to go through what I enjoyed and what I didn’t enjoy about Funk Of Titans.

Story

From what I am gathering is that the story is about you Perseus (Son of Zeus) going around and restoring the balance of music coming up against different Titans such as Pop , Rap and Rock destroying these genres of music and making Funk the music for everyone.

Overall the story is not the strong point of the game as there really is not any change from each level and no character development, so if your looking for a strong story you wont be getting that from this game.

Gameplay

The gameplay to Funk Of Titans is a side scroller where you only control the attack and jump the movement is controlled by itself making the game slightly more difficult knowing when to time your jumps and attacks.
There is also a bonus mission when you collect Pegasus in each level this bonus mission is where you need to fly and collect vinyl’s dodging obstacles and projectiles being fired at you.
Among the core gameplay and the bonus mission there is also a dance off type on mission and a fight (Both with the same type of gameplay) where you need to press either A B X Y when shown on the screen.
I like it that the game switches these elements up a bit and keeps you entertained.

Graphics

The graphics to Funk Of Titans are very colorful and I have to admit I like it a lot, it suits the game very well and makes everything stand out, every level is very bright and seems very different to the next which I like as it feels like there is much more the game has to offer. Overall the graphics are very rich and detailed and is definitely one of the strong points to this game.

Sound

The music in the game is very repetitive and doesn’t change that much which is a shame but it is not too much to worry about as the core music and sounds are OK but as stated above it can get repetitive.

The attacking sounds are great and fit the game perfectly and the main characters voice Perseus sounds amazing and fits the character very well. Overall the sound is nothing special, no memorable soundtrack but I do think the character sounds great and so do other sound effects such as jumping and attacking

Lasting Appeal

With any game in which there are collectibles to get means there is a replay value and this game will have you trying to collect every vinyl and every Pegasus for the bonus missions and also the Titan dance offs or the Grunt Fights will make you want to press every correct button for the gold level.

Overall this game is very fun and addictive, making you want to get everything in the game and is very enjoyable while doing so but when finishing everything, I don’t think there is much of a replay value but for what it is worth I thought the game was great and is definitely worth checking out.

Rating 8/10

The Good

  • Great Fun
  • Very Addictive
  • Very Simple Controls
  • Awesome level designs

The Bad

  • Experienced lots of glitches (getting stuck in walls , HUD not showing up had to quit the game and go back on it to fix it)
  • Not a very long game and that’s including collecting everything I say it can all be finished with 6 to 7 hours not even that

Funk Of Titans is available now on Xbox One.
