UGLY BUG BALL

EDGE - - PLAY -

Ta­los blends chunky in­dus­trial de­sign with an­cient ar­chi­tec­ture and luridly tech­no­log­i­cal top notes, but lacks the character of Aper­ture Sci­ence’s iPod pan­els and run­down crawl spa­ces. The Greco-Ro­man and Egyp­tian ar­eas feel like vis­it­ing Paris in Ve­gas, a some­how soul­less recre­ation of fa­mil­iar ed­i­fices, while the Me­dieval land is a hodge­podge of just about ev­ery English Her­itage fortress. No amount of sly glitch­ing to tie it all into the plot can atone for a lack of co­her­ent art di­rec­tion.
