Titanfall is Yet Another Game Rushed Out the Door By EA

CraveOnline: "Battlefield 4, Warhammer Online, Mass Effect 3, and Titanfall all have something in common. Can you guess what it is? Well, not only were they AAA titles published by EA, but they were pushed out to market before they were ready to walk." (PC, TitanFall, Xbox One)

nubes, nubes and more nubes everywhere i look on any xbox article, ms really knows how to suck in the nubes that are dense enough to praise a game with bots and auto aim pistols lol 0_o will never understand how majority of xbox fans support such nube friendly games.

i played the beta for pc and ran it on ultra and it looked garbage lol compared to bf 4. bots made the game feel detached couldnt get into it competitively when 85 percent of the players i was killing were mindless bots and the auto aim pistols such a joke.

id rather die in bf 4 over and over again then to waste time killing mindless bots over and over. game is arcadey and weak. killzone with mechs was way better imo.

enjoy the nubefest when you get you're heads out of ms ass i'll see you in killzone shadowfall and bf4.

I had one instance where the framerate went to crap when about 5 titans all went nuclear at about the same time. Other than that I haven't noticed any big drops that cause me to notice.
legionsoup  +   137d ago
Frame rate drops are one thing, but when a game doesn't have all of the modes it SHOULD have because they wanted to get it out the door faster, that's a problem.

There should be a lot more gaming modes. Now I see why there's no single player. Because there are just the bare bones in terms of multiplayer.

Push games back until they are finished. Killer Instinct wasn't finished. Neither was this.

Framerate drops in an online shooter can get you killed. It isn't just some minor annoyance, it can actually have a negative effect on the gameplay other than just making the game look like a slideshow.

This is why I barely read reviews any more and say they are completely irrelevant. Those of us that own an X1 and don't wear blinders were saying how bad the frame rates and tearing was in the beta. Some of us were willing to give Respawn the benefit of the doubt for exactly that reason. It was a beta.

Now the game is released and it's identical to the beta performance. Now it's either one of 2 things. This game was rushed to market or the X1 hardware is insufficient to handle games like this. You can't have it both ways. Although a certain segment of MS fans will try to have it both ways. "I mean I can't see any of these issues at all / it runs fine for me." Now not all of them are full of it. There honestly is some people that just aren't affected by performance issues / don't notice them.

TitanFall has serious potential. Respawn left Activision because of Kotick and who do they have publish their new franchise? Activisions separated at birth equally evil / ignorant / greedier than all hell twin brother EA.

This game should not have been released until Fall 2014. To the journalist that rated this game and 8.5 or higher? *facepalm* With the exception of Sessler. He would give Hanna Montana a 5/5 if it was an MS exclusive.

When you're a supposed journalist writing a review for a anything you should have the ability to have personal bias, business interest and swag / advertising dollars not influence your bottom line. Most of them do one or all of the above.

You can't go to many sites without having their main pages completely covered with TF advertisement. Do you think these sites put them on the pages for free? No. It's how they get their revenue. But MS even takes it further. They literally open their checkbooks and try to get reviewers to sign waivers to give them favorable reviews and articles.

That is how they get by with rushing games out the door. This is the 4th exclusive rushed to market for the XBOX ONE and it's only been out 4 months.

Hella people complaining framerate this and resolution that, why dont we compare this game to KZSF resolution and the framerate in that? what about how bad the SINGLE PLAYER AI in that game was??
Its really P$ FanBoys on here starting riots over this game because its not on their console.

It really isnt that bad for one and two nobody cares because NO CONSOLE games come with a true locked framerate, so while everybody is bashing this game for dropped frames. Ill be sitting bck enjoying this wonderfully balanced, highly competitive FPS and hang around to rag on the frame dips that will happen in infamous and the order loooool

"There is no frame rate drop problem on the X1 version. The game runs very, very smoothly."

Congrats, on saying one of the dumbest things here. And KZ has 12v12 (24players) and custom preset modes and no tearing, whereas TF is only 6v6 and bare bone modes and tearing up the ying yang. Also, if you just do a 6v6 game on KZ, it runs at a solid 60fps and as you said, it has better graphics. So no, TF is not superior in every way.

One they use the source Engine, which is a resource hog and is nearly a ten year old engine. Valve is the only developer that has been able to get the most out of the engine, every other developer that used the source engine have had poorly optimized and buggy games. The game was obviously rushed by EA and Microsoft. EA has a hard time letting there developers finish a game and most times the customer pays $60.00 to beta test for them. Another thing it's a multiplayer game where most of your combatants are bots, there is not many game modes, no single player.
Reaks of being rushed to market, EA and Microsoft are both probably at fault for it being rushed. All of Microsoft's Xbox One games seam to suffer the same fate of being rushed to market.

Dude where do you get your 20 fps dip (hell someone is even saying 5 fps like WTF), I have been playing the shit out of it over the past 3 days and have never encountered any such dip in frame rate.

Also you state that you play yet quote a digital foundry article when hit up about the frame dip. Do you not trust your own eye sight in order to answer the question without quoting another source to back up your point.

From someone that is actually playing the game, the game runs silky smooth on the Xbox One, it is a tonne of fun, in fact I would go as far as saying the best First Person Shooter I have played in a bloody long time.

If I was to critice any thing about Titanfall it would be its tacked on multiplayer campaign or story mode otherwise the game is top notch at least in my opinion.

This is weird, it is like some of us are playing two different games. Some actually agree with the frame dips etc....apart from the odd bit of latency (when switching to a server that places me at one bar compared to the normal five) I am not encountering any dips in frames not even when the action on screen is at its most chaotic.

What do the dinosaurs have to do with "rushed out the door"? They are there in the backdrop, there isn't anything to suggest they were supposed to be anything more.

It's a new IP and the focus isn't going to be on making Halo 3-level content. Those things take time and come with sequels. A new IP focuses on getting the core mechanics to work, and that likely takes a lot of time. Not sure why this article is complaining about a lack of co-op, it's unfair to expect that or cite it as a sign of a rushed job.

New modes would definitely be nice, and I'm sure they will be added through the lifetime of the game. You really can take any new IP and ask "Why isn't there more content", but a lot of the times, that potential is realized through sequels or patches, after your core mechanics are already nailed down and you focus resources on other things.

It's very dramatic to compare it to Battlefield 4's rush job. That game is a whole different level of disaster. Titanfall isn't "ready to walk"? I really don't understand the hyperbole.

The first in-game screen shot that Respawn ever released, that very blurred one, seemed to have a monster/dinosaur in it. And now that I see what the monsters look like, that's definitely what it was. So they were in fact in the game at one point, then were taken out, and are now apparently going to be sold as DLC.

I do agree though that Titanfall cannot be compared to BF4. That game was completely broken on release, and is still broken in many ways.

What picture? I think I recall, but that does not mean a) it was ever planned to be a core concept of the game, b) that it wasn't what it already was: a scene in the backdrop of the maps.

Nowhere in development was the game hinted to have dinosaurs play a major role in the game. That only came with the beta leaks, which got hyped by people. I also don't recall any suggestion that they would be DLC.

This does not prove a "rush" job. It's an incredible desperate nitpick by the author.

New IP or not that doesn't give you a pass to release a half assed game. Being that it's online only and still $60 it should have everything if not more than a game with a campaign too like halo 3. "Wait for the sequel" "wait for Ryse" "wait for E3" "wait for Halo" "wait for Black Tusks new game" "oh wait nevermind wait for the new Gears instead" "wait for the cloud" "wait etc etc etc"

Frankly I'm tired of waiting.
-Alpha  +   137d ago
So you expect a new IP to somehow match everything an IP that has had 3 iterations to perfect has? And you judge the game on stuff like lack of co-op, when it was never advertised to have such a thing?

Any game that doesn't have a set list of features is "rushed"? "Unfinished"? Just curious, because a number of games would fail to reach this arbitrary list of demands. If a complete list of features like Halo 3 is your standard, then nearly all games fall short.

These articles that criticize co-op, dinosaurs, and whatever else are really grabbing at straws. I can understand complaints about a lack of modes or not feeling the overall package is worth $60, but it seems really silly to call the game rushed and compare it to Battlefield

@-alpha- my complaint is about it being $60. If it had been $30 I wouldn't expect as much from it as I would a full priced game. Not saying it a game bad or anything like that but it should be top notch. The gameplay honestly looks great but overall its not worth $60 IMO. It doesn't matter what system it's on I'd say the same if it was a PS exclusive or multiplatform. As next gen title it has no excuses seeing as they were able to solely focus on multiplayer and had plenty of other game to go off of and improve on.

Same goes for KZ:SF it's a great looking game, has a fun multiplayer but GG needs to talk to ND about their storylines because it was a mess and that killed it for me personally same with KZ3. Those games have so much potential...

I have played the beta and rented the full game. It's mediocre, it's not a bad game but it's too easy taking no skill to accomplish anything and it's just rehashed boring COD controls. It gets boring after a few hours because you don't get a sense a sense of accomplishment having everything nearly done for you.

I don't need to read reviews because most feedback from sponsored sites is fake and a lot of people are disappointed in it because of the 'making it easy for casuals'.

I'm not saying it's a bad game, it's perfect for the COD crew who don't understand how to play real games and can learn to get better, but because they have poor design choices for that reason it makes it much less than a great game.

I know a few people that have played the game some love it the rest had meh reactions to it.. There is a lot of shooter fatigue anymore and aside from the Mech/pilot mechanic this game literally does nothing new or exciting.. Once the awe of seeing the Titan fall from space this game becomes tedious very quickly.. If this game had a single player or co op component I would be thrilled about it but an online only competititve shooter that is lacking features and having framerate issues despite "the power of the cloud" is dissapointing..

Titanfall had minimum 3 years in development, that game wasn't rushed. It was a new studio building a new, engine building and a new game- it was badly optimized, not haphazardly put together in an unreasonably short amount of time.

If you open up a studio and get a publisher like EA to fund your game, 3 years is more than reasonable especially considering they're taking on all the financial risk. Any longer and your game just isn't going to earn what it cost to make.

People must seriously get over thinking EA is this literally evil corporation that loves pushing out flawed products almost as much as it loves killing kittens, 'cause at the end of the day we're still left with an extremely playable and highly rated game.
stuna1  +   137d ago
TitanFall was in development for 4 years, the engine is a modified engine, not a new engine. And we're talking the makers of Call of Duty 4 here! At least that is the reason so many were saying why Respawn should automatically be considered trustworthy and infallible. There are thing about the game that weren't achieved that should have been achieved! Especially after all the hype surrounding it, and now there are some out there giving the full picture of how things really are.

I find it concerning that it took 4 years to come up with multiplayer only game with 15 maps and 5 game modes and it has some frame rate issues. I am fans of these developers from their COD days, but the time in development vs the content received doesn't add up. Something happened during development we are not being told. I know Jason West left half way thru development, which makes me wonder if original development on this game was scrapped and they restarted.

You have seen portal 2 not a graphics powerhouse by no means, In fact Half Life 2 looked much better than portal 2. If you are trying to make an excuse it's a poor one. If you are saying it's updated version (Not a completely new engine in 2011) and you think it still looks sub par, then I would agree.

I dunno about that one there, Freddy. Don't get me wrong, EA did a good thing scooping up the core CoD team and funding their project, but the way they handled it was just annoyingly seedy, deceptive, and downright dumb on their own part. Their little exclusivity deal with Microsoft was just wrong, and the entire industry knows it. The fans, other developers, media publication, EVERYONE - has voiced their distain with the exclusivity. EA even shot their own damn selves in the foot, losing a massive amount of profit that could have been gained on Playstation platforms.

This in-turn forced Respawn to prioritize the X1 as its flagship version which we all know had botched dev kits thanks to Microsoft along with terrible ES ram. They limited their reach, wasted marketshare, signed a deal behind their backs and f*cked it up for everybody except Microsoft and their fanboys. It's actually pretty hilarious they did all of this to these guys after they had just been stiffed by Activision.

"extremely playable and highly rated game."

First and foremost there were widespread issues logging into the game on launch. Secondly there have been a lot of users claiming framerate issues sometimes dipping into the single digits! Even digital foundry confirmed this.. Third the resolution is only 792. Very very poor for a game dependent on the "Power of the cloud" to run and is a multiplayer only game with 15 maps and 5 play modes.. So much hype and very underwhelming in reality... Oh and as far as "highly rated" its sitting at an 86 on metacritic, thats above average but not "highly rated"...

TitanFall was in development for a little over 4 years for a multiplayer game, but as far as content goes, it doesn't even deliver half of what games with both single/multi games are delivering in half that time! Plus these games are doing it with more fps and better resolutions.
Ginesis  +   136d ago
You're still not explaining how that makes my first statement false. What I'm saying is that regardless of the game more development time equates to more being done. Its as simple as that! Couldn't infamous be considered to be released half passed since it's lacking the original fidelity that was intended???

Infamous was supposed to be a launch tittle but Sony gave them extra time to finish and polish the game( this was said by SuckerPunch in an interview) plus it's an established franchise, they probably started work before the second game was finished. Sony may delay games often or cancel them, but when they release a first party game they make sure that it is finished.
Ginesis  +   136d ago
So you're saying the difference from the E3 trailer to now (mainly lighting and shadows) is where it was when they first showed footage of it?!? You don't think with more time they wouldn't of been able to achieve more???

A game is rushed when is launched before it's ready. A game isn't rushed because it was announced around the same time as another game that WAS rushed.

That's just stupid.
Ginesis  +   136d ago
What's stupid is your answer! Read it again...the games being release at the same time is me "framing" the circumstances! Good shot, try again.
BG11579  +   136d ago
The game is an exclusive fof the PS4. No PC port or ps3 port.
The PS4 is an easy console to developped.
If they actain an excellent level it's all because of those factors.
Hicken  +   136d ago
And that's stupid because it's an arbitrary frame. Frame of time is no fixed determinant of whether or not a game has been rushed. Some games don't need as much time. Some games need more.

The time itself is irrelevant. The final product determined whether it was rushed or not. Cuz if a dev can put out the same quality in less time, that doesn't make it rushed as a game that should have spent more time being worked on.

I've had a lot of fun playing it, put in over 9 hours since Tuesday and I'm loving it so far.

Titanfall is good, but not a next gen game. Let's hope Destiny introduce us to a real next gen shooter.
Dudebro90  +   137d ago
You mean that game that's also on 360 and ps3.
SliceOfTruth888  +   137d ago
The only thing wrong about titanfall is that I can't get enough of it and every Sony pony is starring at their ps4 foaming at the mouth for infamous...not that they shouldn't be because its a great game its just they are still waiting for one good exclusive to come out for it.

One bubble to say absolutely nothing, factually or otherwise! And I bet you're one of those who can't understand why they get disagrees or reduced to 1 bubble, for future reference just refer back to your own comment for as many times are needed.
aragon  +   137d ago
pity you got so many disagrees because titanfall is fun, and i think some people are jealous, i wanna see how many articles dissing infamous will get approved. Its a shame this could be a good website if not for the double standards.
Benjaminkno  +   136d ago
Good one!!

It is funny that Sony fans aren't talking about what they're playing, because there isn't anything to play. I would trade in KillZone if I would get more than 15 dollars for it.

All this Titanfall bashing just makes me want to play it even more, considering the source.
DJ  +   137d ago
I don't think it was rushed. But using the old Doom/Source engine has obviously held the game back on a technical level. Design-wise it seems great. The biggest complaint is that it's a 30 dollar game packaged as a 60 dollar game.
Eddie20101  +   136d ago
No offence, but Doom used id tech, not Valves Source engine (Half Life 2, Portal, portal 2)
pakua  +   137d ago
God forbid anyone saying Titanfall is half decent on n4g. A game that is released on Xbox and not Playstation is instantly a terrible game.

I enjoyed reading your article, Titanfall is definitely over hyped
mochachino  +   137d ago
So they gave a came a 9/10 then decide several days after the review to criticize the lack of game modes, content, and server problems.

How in the world does that not effect the the initial review score?

In gaming media, if a game is hyped it automatically rate highly.
jessupj  +   137d ago
Yeah, it's quite sickening the corrupt state of gaming reviews.

I think it also has something to do with journalists not wanting to look like complete utter fools.

When someone's been hyping up a game for months, when they come to review it they're not going to embarrass themselves and give a low score.
DJ  +   137d ago
Even minus the hype, Titanfall is a good game. 3 years of development was ample time. I'm just surprised there aren't more maps or game modes since they didn't have a campaign to build.

I'll get it when it comes out on PS4.
overlord23  +   137d ago
I am really enjoying this game (picked up the Titanfall bundle on Friday with trade ins at GameStop) but I've had a PS4 since launch and there is a HUGE gap between the Xbone and the PS4 graphics.
TheTowelBoy  +   137d ago
It really isn't though. I've seen my friends play it for hours without even a hiccup. The only problems on X1 I've seen is with the interface and Kinect functionality. Tf itself looks solid, have yet to play it though. No x1 either
Erudito87  +   137d ago
WTH ea are just the publishers respawn have been apparently working on this for years! and on an old engine! any technical problems should be directed at respawn!
T1125P  +   137d ago
They should have looked for a different publisher, not the dick heads at EA. I wish they would take the id Software approach, release date: When its done! Also ditch that crap Origin and go with Steam, or better yet neither just have the in game browser for multiplayer just like how the original Modern Warfare was.
bababrooks  +   136d ago
How much do you think in this day and age it costs to start a studio??????? I'd have. Been at it for years bud.... We all have to start somewhere.

This article is another article rushed out the door to obtain clicks.
RVanner_  +   137d ago
Ive found the game gets old fast, its needs more
sAVAge_bEaST  +   137d ago
Gaming Media, -Perfect scores, Flawless buttery frame rates.

Real World, Screen Tearing when frame rate drops, Seems Rushed.

Attention all Gaming Media.. You are a Joke. This game should have gotten no higher than an 8/10, or 4/5.... AT THE MOST.

LOLYGON marked .5 on ps4 Ghost's, because of supposed F/S issues.

EA must be boycotted, because this is their MO.

DJ  +   137d ago
That's why i trust user reviews, not media reviews. Too much bribing going on. We've seen it time and again. If the publisher fronts advertising dollars, the review scores are intentionally raised.

http://kotaku.com/5893785/y...

This is what happens when a reviewer doesn't follow the rules.
Bigpappy  +   137d ago
Yep. PS4 only users on N4G are the perfect people to verify that Titan Falls is loaded with problems especially if you get it on Xbox one.

This is why I come here too: To get all the great insightful info on all things M$ and Xbox. Not a fanboy with and agenda in sight here.
Dan_scruggs  +   137d ago
Or you could say its a new IP made by a new company that has never shipped a game before and has a unique and fun play style. It also happens to be a wonderful start to a new franchise that will surely grow into greater things with further iterations.

Or you could just be a narrow minded hater that believes that screen resolution and frame rates are what makes games great and not innovative gameplay ideas.

Right?
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   137d ago
Uh, well you could look at it that way...or you could not be biased and open minded and admit that it should be far more optimized than it is? How about that for a start? Giving a free pass for a new studio (that has YEARS of knowledge and pedigree to them) is pretty off base. Resolution is idiotic but accepting frame rate dips such as the one it suffers is the reason gamers get this crap. It isn't acceptable regardless of platform, developer or publisher. Sorry, but you couldn't be more wrong in every single facet.
aragon  +   137d ago
u this angry about kz shadow fall fps dips? did u write an article about kz shadow fall mp fps dips? is tf more fun than killzone? is halo more fun than killzone? are u angry? is it a fun shooter despite all the hate on here? is it that tf should have been on ps4? or is it cod with mechs?
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   137d ago
Well, considering I don't HAVE an xbox one or a PS4 I'm not the slightest bit angry. Secondly, considering I've never heard a peep about killzone FPS dips, that seems oddly out of the equation. Thirdly, no I do not waste my time writing "articles" about gaming. I have many things in my life to attend to and the 5-10 minutes a day I spend on here is more to relax than argue with someone so nonsensical. Preaching to the wrong choir buddy. I stand for good gaming and bad performance isn't good gaming. Sorry, you're so up in arms and angry over the truth.
Dan_scruggs  +   136d ago
Seeing as how you are bitching about a game you haven't even played and are getting all your information from second hand sources on N4G. I am choosing to not pay any mind to your inane ramblings.
Summons75  +   137d ago
Sure, it may be a new IP from a new company but the devs in that company are NOT new to the industry. These are devs that always took shortcuts before making Call of Duty, how can you honestly be surprised or in denial they took shortcuts this time?

Next Titanfall, if there is another after this mess of a game, won't be much different. Some tweaks to the engine to make it look 'new' maybe a new mode, different designed robots but nothing that makes it a NEW game... this is Call of Duty 2.0. There isn't anything innovative in this game, COD controls, robots have been in games before, freerunning has been in games before, jetpack have been in games before, bots have been used in games before except as replacements for players until they came NOT an easy kill for idiots.

You're right resolution doesn't have anything to do with this games failings but it doesn't run smooth, which is crucial for a game especially one that requires you to only play online against other people.
aragon  +   137d ago
just like every other platformer copied mario and sonic? so the thousands of other platformers are mario ripoffs?all fighting games are mk ripoffs? mess of a game? all my friends having fun with it.
and apparentl at least 500 thousand other people.
Jag-T1000  +   137d ago
I want some solo missions. I just want to roam around and shoot some enemy grunts and titans. I'm tired of running around and getting killed by snipers.
Ipunchbabiesforfun  +   137d ago
Whoa. Saw the digital foundry video. Yikes those are some massive dips, even went as low as 20! That's pretty bad, I can't believe they couldn't make it more stable than that.
