Titanfall is an intelligent, modern shooter which gives Call of Duty’s multiplayer formula new life

Titanfall is the first substantial revision that the Call of Duty multiplayer formula has undergone since it became the dominant form of entertainment on the last generation of consoles. In securing it as a console exclusive, Microsoft are gambling on the notion that what the majority of players want is a next-gen iteration of an experience they’ve already had.

Yes its indeed nice!Nice to see that EDGE atleast knowns that to give a straight forward review or an actual fair review to buyers they will wait to test the game in real servers conditions since this game is only MP!Contrary to other so call known review sites that give scores without real testing the game were it should be tested!

My Lord I hope to HELL this is NOTHING LIKE that garbage CoD..... repetitive garbage that people might get tired of real quick... don't be like CoD please!!

I've been playing a lot of BF4 lately on PC.

I tried Titanfall Beta and all it made me want to do is play COD ghosts.

It's a decent game, but not for me I don't think.

christocolus1348d ago

Well i agree not everyone may be into it but majority of fps fans will love it.are you very good at competitive multiplayer fps? If not you could try playing with friends online first to see how it goes. The only fps i play are halo, cod and kz2 and im so hyped for this.most of my friends are too. If your a fan of fps you shouldnt miss out on this bro.

pompombrum1348d ago

Lol, I love how many websites are withholding the scores until the game is released fully. I guess we have EA and Battlefield 4 to thank for that.

ThichQuangDuck1348d ago

I guess we have gaming press hype that no game could possibly live up to to thank for that

What will the real difference be in reviewing a primarily multiplayer game based on a demo or the full game. The only real questions left are what out of its play modes are worth anything, or if the story mode is anything more than forgettable.

1nsomniac1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

I usually like Edge reviews as they're more realistic i.e. generally give out lower scores (which I prefer) but 'Intelligent' seems to be a little out of place here as it's just an arena, close combat, run & gun game.

Same way as although Quake Arena was a great game, it was in no way intelligent.

Pandamobile1348d ago

I'm guessing you haven't played Titan Fall yet. It's hardly an arena shooter.

Godmars2901348d ago

How isn't it an arena shooter when the area you fight in is enclosed?

Honest question.

Pandamobile1348d ago

"Arena shooter" is a sub-genre for games like Quake, Unreal Tournament, Nexuiz, etc.

You could lump every FPS game on the planet into the arena shooter category with your definition, Godmars.

ThatOneGuyThere1348d ago

i consider the entire COD franchise to be "arena shooters". fast, unrealistic, movements in a somewhat confined space with gameplay that encourages lone wolf attitudes. i dont know what else to describe it as.

1nsomniac1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

@ThatOneGuy - I completely agree with you with the majority of the COD games except for maybe World at War which was a bit more open & not as linear. I think most people would too.

If you want to compete, you need to be quick and smart, or you will become just another BOT to be added to the kill count.

Godmars2901348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

"You could lump every FPS game on the planet into the arena shooter category with your definition"

Yes. Unless there is some active consequences which changes the circumstances and conditions of the next "arena" most if not all FPS should be considered to take place within arenas.

Saying that, given that Titanfall is suppose to have a story mode as a multiplayer title, it may have some active element which either lets a side choose where the next fight happens or uses certain conditions to do it. In that case Titanfall would break the mold.

I wouldnt call it "intelligent" since its designed to be accessible to casuals as much as hardcore gamers, its a great game, but intelligent? no

Pandamobile1348d ago

Funny, that's exactly why I'd consider it an intelligently designed game. Do you know how difficult of a feat it is to design a game that caters to both hardcore and casual gamers?

ThatOneGuyThere1348d ago

its no more difficult than making a game that appeals strongly to a hardcore audience. i would argue its more difficult to make a game for a hardcore audience as they demand a serious level of detail and balancing that the casuals would overlook or dismiss. We'll see in a month how well this game was designed by looking at forums and seeing if everyone who is any good is using the same guns...

No1up1348d ago

I propose to you this question, to make a game so balanced that expert and casual gamer alike can play and have a blast together,does that not in it of it self not make it intelligent?

NovusTerminus1348d ago

Actually, that just means you have a low skill ceiling.

cell9891348d ago

I see your point, but no. It holds your hand too much, also there's barely any destructible/dynamic environments. It really is just run n' gun. Intelligent shooters are not for everyone, have you ever played Arma II? That's a game I consider intelligent. Even Killzone holds a better candle in that regard

ruefrak1348d ago

Am I the only one who is getting the vibe that Titanfall is going to be all the rage or about a month, and then slowy forgotten? I keep thinking it's going to be like Halo 4. Everyone is psyched for it, and then once it comes out, it's really big for a few weeks and then gets lost in the excitement for the next big thing.

I already know a bunch of people who immediately said no to the game once discovering it was only multiplayer.

James Vanderbeek1348d ago

the media is overhyping this just like they do with past call of duty games. it will fade. its 6 vs 6 with the same exact game modes as cod. i dont see the lasting appeal there.

Pandamobile1348d ago

If you look back on this comment 5 years from now, you're going to laugh at how poorly you called it, I guarantee it.

bmx_bandit1348d ago

omg, in how many titan fall threads have u responded with the same cod-bs? still not tired?

creatchee1348d ago

@James Vanderbeek

Given your comment history, it's no surprise that you can't see the lasting appeal here.

No1up1348d ago

If I got 20hrs of fun out of the game then I got my money worth.

TRD4L1fe1348d ago

I get the feeling this game will be all the rage for the entire year

mhunterjr1348d ago (Edited 1348d ago )

The target audience doesn't care that there is no single player. Respawn designed the game with knowledge that 80% of online players never finish the single player campaign. These gamers easily top over 100hrs online before they get tired of it.

Simply put, the game is being sold to people who feel like they get their money's worth from the time they spend online. Obviously, They have different values than you.

Personally, I like a good single player game, but rarely do I find them replayable. It's usually the MP that keeps me coming back.
