Although "Titan Quest" is set in the ancient world and has impressive graphics, I couldn't see much of a narrative to the gameplay. I watched a video clip and it showed a character hacking and slashing a hoard of satyrs then, when the enemy was joined by a huge Cyclops, the character magically grew to "titan" size and crushed them all. The game was produced by a new company headed by a former founder of the company that released "Diablo". I realize Diablo was a hit in its time but for the more history-driven player, Diablo's relative is not going to offer much in the intellectually stimulating department. I think I'll pass on this one when it is released in 2006.
