Prepare for Titanfall. Crafted by one of the co-creators of Call of Duty and other key developers behind the Call of Duty franchise, Titanfall is an all-new universe juxtaposing small vs. giant, natural vs. industrial and man vs. machine. The visionaries at Respawn have drawn inspiration from their proven experiences in first-person action and with Titanfall are focused on bringing something exciting the next generation of multiplayer gaming.
Fast-Paced Future Warfare:
In Titanfall the advanced warfare of tomorrow gives you the freedom to fight your way as both elite assault Pilot and agile, heavily armored 24’ tall Titans. Titanfall rethinks fundamental combat and movement giving players the ability to change tactics on the fly, attacking or escaping depending on the situation.
The Future of Online Multiplayer Action:
The game is entirely multiplayer, in a new experience that combines fast-paced online action with the heroic set piece moments traditionally found in campaign mode. The intersection of the two is a big part of what gives Titanfall its iconic identity.
The Visionaries that Defined Gaming for a Generation are back!:
Founded in 2010, Respawn Entertainment was formed by Vince Zampella and Jason West, former co-founders of Infinity Ward and two of the co-creators of the multi-billion dollar franchise Call of Duty™ They are building on their pedigree and taking a new approach to game design and creating an all new universe with Titanfall
There are a few gripes I have with Titanfall, lack of a campaign or story being one such example, but I am willing to overlook these nitpicks due to the fact that Titanfall has done something that many games fail to do. Next gen shooter's like Battlefield and COD have been in the same comfortable formulaic gameplay niche for almost a decade. Titanfall, on the other hand, adds innovative game mechanics like zip-lines and wall running, as well as the Titans themselves, to create multi-level shooty gameplay that flows like fine wine. I haven't had core-gameplay this fun since TF2.
This game is an amazing casual FPS game. If you have a little bit of FPS experience, you can easily do well in the game, when you first pick up the game. Also it is very fast paced and thanks to the unique guns and titans, they add a new kind of style of shooting. If you are a hard core FPS gamer, this may not be the game for you. The game is also fairly well optimized, but sadly the game takes up a lot of space. Also this game is no worth the full retail price, but it sure is a great game for under $10.
Picked up this to try it out before buying the sequel. The game is really fun to play with its fast combat style. Combined with the Titans kept each match interesting. It also looks great. Being only pvp multiplayer, just wasn't for me. Mixed with bots vs real players got a bit confusing and took a while to really identify the players different. Still was great and no doubt Titanfall 2 will also be fun.
Titanfall is a really well done multiplayer shooter with its focus of parkour-like gameplay as you, a Pilot, jump around buildings and ambush other enemy Pilots along with their backup troops. But of course, the biggest feature in the game are the Titans, big mechs that you can call in after a few minutes, which you can speed up by killing NPC soldiers and player Pilots, and cause quite a lot of devastation, there's even a kit for the Titans that allow them to detonate their reactor in a mini nuclear explosion after they've sustained heavy damage thus taking out any unlucky foe standing nearby, doesn't matter if they're in a Titan or not. Pilots can also jump on a Titan's back, but if a hostile player jumps on your Titan's back, they'll be able to cause some serious damage to the reactor core that they expose with their sidearm, however a friendly player can piggyback so to speak on your Titan to provide cover from hostile players. However, the game's biggest flaw is the "campaign", it is simply laughably short and you don't get to develop any bonds with those characters that pop up out of the blue and sacrifice themselves to complete a mission, but Respawn are at least listening to the criticism people had about this and the, at the time of this writing, upcoming Titanfall 2 will feature a proper single player campaign. Also, the game used to have a season pass, but Respawn got rid of it and made all the map packs available for free for everyone that own Titanfall, something that they're also doing with Titanfall 2. All in all, this is a really enjoyable multiplayer shooter that lets you feel like a real badass doing parkour, killing enemies while wall running before jumping into your Titan and continuing the carnage from there.
Titanfall isn't a game that has a lot of content. However, what it excels in is this new melding of a first person shooter with mech combat. It's absolutely original and it's a blast. My only criticism is the melding of a single player campaign with multiplayer did NOT work. I couldn't hear the dialogue half the time and the randomness of online multiplayer makes it impossible to truly enjoy the little story in the game. If you don't mind just having an online shooter with mech combat, this is an instant buy.
