This game is AWESOME
Ok, I have played the Beta, and so far this game is absolutely AMAZING! I have only found 1 or 2 bugs in the beta, so don't criticize it just because EA is publishing it. The parkour is simply awesome, running along walls, jumping on titans, boosting around, etc. The combat feels alot like CoD, but honestly, CoD has some pretty nice gunplay. The Titans are not overpowered at all: as soon as you jump in one you become one of the biggest targets on the map. It's fairly easy to take down a Titan, and it's also fairly easy to stay alive as a Titan and demolish everyone in your path. There are also these things called burn cards, which are like single use items that you can use in-game. Some give you powered up weapons, while others give you xp boosts or make you run faster. There are only 2 maps, but I still did not get bored because each battle was different and unique. Both maps have places to run around and parkour, and they are decently sized. Each match is 6v6, but there are numerous AI controlled bots on the field. These bots are not useless however: they do kill and if playing on Hardpoint Domination they do capture hardpoints. Finally, the last thing in this game is challenges. There are LOTS of challenges, and certain ones allow you to unlock different things for your guns and Titans. For example, if I kill 50 grunts with a certain gun, I'll get a new sight for my gun. Leveling up will also get you new guns, perks, and attachments. Overall, this game feels very nice, looks very nice, and adds enough new stuff to make this a CoD killer. PS Another thing I should mention is that this game is very well optimized.
Gets Old Fast
I got this game thinking that the gameplay would be revolutionary like everything said it was. And at first I thought that it really was. Everything was pretty cool and the game felt unique. 2 days later, I'd completed the campaign (took like only 4 hours), I had played a fair share of matchmaking. I've had the game for as long as its been out and I'll tell you I put 14 hours in the first week. I haven't touched it since. There is very few unlocks so the game feels pretty pointless once you have them all. All you do is play the same things on the same map for hours. The gameplay is great but the customization and options you have are so limited that it is crippling to replayability. I honestly regret buying this game, $60 absolutely wasted. I don't see myself picking the game back up because its just not appealing. I feel like I've done just about everything there is to do and having a larger level number next to my name is not reason enough to keep me coming back. Another note is that there is basically no true matchmaking. You'll either end up on an overpowered team or be on the short end of that stick. Save yourself some money and don't "believe the hype."
At first, I wanted to purchase the Xbox 360 version because my cousin wanted to play with me. Then, an offer I couldn't refuse came to me for the PC version. My PC isn't the best, so i have to use low settings, but the game still doesn't look bad! I play Hardpoints the most and I find it sooo addicting! i stay up later than i'm supposed to do playing this game! I was hesitant at first, but once i got the hang of the gameplay and controls, i fell in love with this game! Much better than COD and so fun to play as a giant Titan with awesome weapons! But, i would prefer to have had a larger selection of guns, though i'm not sure if there are more and that i cant see them because im not a high leveled player. But otherwise, a really great FPS game.
"No Noobs allowed"
Bought this game on launch and i had a blast for the first few weeks. Gameplay was nothing new, but it was tight and responsive, and the titans felt like "Titans". You can read the many other reviews that people have wrote about the gameplay. Im only here to warn some of you, that the online population has drastically dwindled down, to just the hardcore fans. They now have a proper matchmaking system, but the problem is... there are not enough new players, or low level players anymore. Like in Call of Duty, Titanfall has prestige classes, a total of 10 classes, maxing out in a total of 500 levels. You will not be paired up against players lower than 3rd prestige, and you will be creamed. yea sure, your first 20 matches are a blast. But after a few hours, that wears off and you begin to grow tired of that "defeated" screen while watching your EXP bar crawl inch by inch, match by match. This game is 100% online, no singleplayer campaign, its you vs everyone else. If you're just a casual gamer who likes the occasional shooter, avoid if you can. at the very least, just wait till it drops to < $15.
Terrible gameplay unless you are a hardcore gamer
First off, let me tell you that this game is beautiful. The graphics are awesome and the mechanics are sweet. Wall running and the jump jets are handled perfectly. What I hate about this game is the fact that the only option is online 6v6 gameplay. For me, this means I am constantly getting destroyed by teams of Level 40 players who have better loadouts and Titans than I do and are better gamers. I am lucky to get more than one kill in a round unless they are the auto-bots. The matchmaking is completely broken in this game. I am always playing players who are 30-40 levels above me in ranking and leveling up is nearly impossible as I am always getting destroyed as soon as I spawn.
There is no story mode to allow me to learn the game. There is no way to create "training missions" where I am playing against bots whom I can modify their levels to increase my skills over time.
Overall, this game is perfect for the hardcore gamer willing to play for hours and hours. For the casual gamer, you will be little more that target practice for the players who spend their lives playing this game and/or players who are awesome at it. The good news is it is really fun to run around for 20-30 seconds before you get slaughtered.
I love how it looks and sounds, but every time I try to do the campaign I get put in half way through the story and have no clue what is going on. Also I understand the whole trying to incorporate multiplayer more, but you shouldn't design the campaign of a story around it for the reason I already mentioned. I'm still going to play it, but I wish they would have thought more about the solo players.
Sloppy mess of a game
No match making so you can be level 1 and be paired against a full level 50 team easilly, Not only that but theres plenty of hackers on this game as well, give it long enough and you'll run into more than a few health and speed hackers. And if that wasnt enough there is no single player option whatsoever, you're forced to do co-op only play right from the get go.
A bad FPS Game
Heard great raves about people playing the demo but my god its implementation is horrible. Its doesn't even reach the minimum standards for a modern FPS. Its only 6 on 6 pvp. My god the minimum for a good game these days is 24 or 32 people total. In order to hide the fact that the maps are barren they have implemented horribly scripted ai npcs you shoot. It looks like people to farm these instead of killing other people. But to add insult to injury the real players are barely distinguishable from the npcs so people just hide in them. This game would have been acceptably 5 years ago but the bar has been raised and this game does not reach it.
Even though I can't run it on super high graphics, it's still amazing I was worried it'd look bad, but in the end the game looks good on medium settings and plays very very well I love it and should have bought it sooner.
Better then i expected
I put off buying the game for a few months because i really didnt think i would like this sort of futuristic robotic first person shoooter kind of game. Plus with alot of negative reviews on the game. i just recently purchased TItanfall at the beginning of may 2014, and found myself to be quite surprised with it. the first match i went 54/4 k/d ratio. which puzzled me because there were a few reviews stating that they were upset they were put into servers with max level players. as was i and it didnt really seem to cause an issue. The controls are very easy to use. and i like the fact that your able to just plug in your xbox 360 controller and you can play right away. this helps my gf alot being she is not kb&m friendly. the guns are ok, but dont like the fact theres not much kick or any bullet drop (Huge battlefield Fan) especially for sniping. didnt really like that in COD myself. I also didnt like how your only playing against 6 other real life players and the other 6 are AI drones. that would explain the 54/4 ration i got on my first game. Graphics were better then what i had been hearing about from friends. i would say there along the lines of next gen COD. Sounds are pretty cool especially in the middle of titan fights or near them. i like the loadout set up. very easy to use and understand. and the burn cards are a cool twist on the game as well. All in all i was quite impressed with the game and will be buing the DLC soon. I would definatly recoment this to a friend or a gamer curious on trying it for themeselves.
