Titanfall 2 comes back onto the scene in the middle of a huge number of other shooters. Battlefield 1, Overwatch, and CoD are still all fresh in their releases. Titanfall however does a great job in separating itself with some awesome and unique gameplay. The movement is what strikes me as the most unique. Running fast and bouncing off of walls is commonplace and is what really makes this one of the most awesome games of the year. If you are keen on camping a single location this might not be as good for you. If you are master of escape, disappearing just long enough to come back and avenge your would be attacker, this will be great.
Metcritic Score: 89
This game becomes boring very quickly. After playing it for 2 hrs after I bought it I was scratching my head wondering if this was all? I like multiplayer games and pilot v pilot matches are not fun at all, the mechanics of the game are clearly not meant for this. As for modes like amped hardpoint it just seems like whoever gets the early lead gets their titans in first and will usually win the game. Every match plays out like the rest and this game doesn’t stack up to competitive shooter masterpieces like Halo 5 or Gears 4. Graphics are great I guess buy this game if you love graphics and aren’t good at standard shooters because it is a lot different and feels less competitive
BOX O MIDGETS:
Terrific (albeit short) single player campaign that felt fun and fresh, setting itself apart from most FPS’s today. I can’t stop playing the multiplayer and each mode has its own merits. My favorite is probably Last Titan Standing, because you get to see what sets each titan apart and feel out their strengths and weaknesses. This game has a lot more counterplay than the first and you need to make more decisions than charging forward. Did I mention free post-launch content that isn’t just cosmetic? This game is definitely worth the purchase, and it’s a shame it fell under the radar from BF1 and CoD:IW.
