Official XBOX Magazine | Titanfall review

A consummate multiplayer shooter, Titanfall has little to offer those interested in story — but for everyone else, it’s a must-play.

you wouldn't expect the official Xbox magazine to have one of the few rare sober reviews of the game, this one and GamesBeat gave the best information.

Septic1353d ago (Edited 1353d ago )

Why? Because its lower than other scores?

I remember your little crusade against this game a while back. Ready to eat your words or are you going to pick and choose which reviews are 'right' ones?

"Titanfall has little to offer those interested in story — but for everyone else, it’s a must-play."

Well its a must play according to this review NewMonday. Guess you were wrong ripping this title to shreds a few weeks back eh?

I think you need to read his comment again.....Slowly....

It is people whom have Nailed Their Ballz to the Titanfall Mast that have more to lose. The holy grail of another reason to get behind the Xbone!

I expected a higher score from the official xbox magazine myself, it's actually sobering to see them score like this.

I have always assumed that official magazines were biased and reflected this in scores of games and hype building, I have done this since the Nintendo power days.

Actually this increases my respect of the magazine and of microsoft for not manipulating a score of 10 out of 10 to maybe help shift more units. This is a good thing.

Gamer19821353d ago

8.5 is the average score tbh.. Most sites giving either a 9 or an 8 only 2 I seen give it a 10.. But that's due to limited scoring system(both use 5/5 system). It will probably balance out on metacritic about 8.7, 8.8 . Which is a great score for a new IP.

I don't care if this game gets a 2 or an 11. What I don't understand is how in the hell these sites are reviewing an online only game when it hasn't even officially launched?

Gaming journalist - extremely low credibility.
Personally I wont pass judgment on this game until I have played every map several times over and have logged some serious play time into it.

It's the same with SP only games. A lot of reviewers don't even come close to completing single player games before writing a review and I've personally been told by quite a few journalist that they play SP games on the easiest difficulty setting (if they have variable settings). When I asked them why I get this response, "I don't need to complete the game or be challenged to write a thorough review." SMH

So ALL of these reviews I'm taking with a truck load of salt. Just rushing out reviews to get traffic / attention for their sites.

jetlian1353d ago

brutal people are already playing it online thats how. the game went gold a month ago. They got a closed screening of it

@Septic

did you read my comment before you came in shooting?

this is a good review because it is well informed, not like most others who look like they came out from the MS press office.

as for my criticism for the game they centered on the AI cannon fodder and small 6v6 MP, some people just don't like that, good for you that you can look over that.

CEOSteveBallmer1353d ago

You really are touchy when it comes to titanfall. there's nothing negative of what he said. No offense but titanfall is really and "Overhyped game". it reminds me of "Rage" way back made by Id software, the ones who pioneered fps and yet look what happened. and this respawn team is no exception. but hey, i said many times titanfall is a great game no doubt about it. but i just don't like how people overhype it to exaggerated levels. yes they overhype it. call me a sony fanboy or whatever but this is the truth. what do you expect from a game with last gen visuals, made with an old "source engine" back from 2004 and mostly multiplayer centered? = an average to good game

Wow this is getting some great reviews, Is this the highest scoring game this gen?

badz1491353d ago

I didn't press the disagree but I'll explain. NO!

Convas1353d ago

I dunno how you expect anyone to take what you say seriously, considering how dedicated you've been in your smear campaign against this game.

0neShot1353d ago

I don't understand why it has become a life long mission by this guy to propagate hate on TF. And the reason is because his console of choice can't play it. Dysfunctional human beings, what can I say.

Is it possible for them to be unbiases on an Xbox/MS exclusive?

Fireseed1353d ago

What should be more shocking is that half this sites fanboy population hasn't gone into epileptic shock from not being able to throw the term moneyhat at them.

WeAreLegion1353d ago

These guys are usually pretty harsh on games, even exclusives, so I consider this a great score from them. :)

mike32UK1353d ago

Happy to see this getting good reviews, if I had both consoles I would definitely getting this!
