Titan Quest: Immortal Throne review

Don't pay the ferryman

Pros

  • New areas and level design are great
  • Objectives are way cooler
  • Worth it if you like the original

Cons

  • New items don't work that well
  • New Dream abilities are alright
  • Diablo clone

Expansion packs are usually bland affairs, but this one kind of unsettles us. Titan Quest was a tragic game that was meant to be the next big thing but ended up a so-so Diablo clone after six years in development. And almost all of what Immortal Throne adds centers around two themes: dreams and death.

If ever there was a game that would turn out to be haunted and end up electrocuting you through your mouse, this is it.

For those of you who ain%26rsquo;t afraid of no ghost, Immortal Throne is a broad platter of additions. A new mastery joins the original eight: you pick two to make your character, so there are eight new potential combinations that could make use of the new %26ldquo;Dream%26rdquo; skills. Then you%26rsquo;ve got a new fourth chapter for the game proper, which takes you back to Greece on a quest into the depths of Hades. New items include special super-powerful artifacts that require you to happen across the recipe, amass the ingredients and pay for them to be made. Lastly you%26rsquo;ve got some interface improvements and the appearance of caravan drivers in every settlement who%26rsquo;ll store your gear, for a price.
