Titanfall is a good game, but is it good for gaming?
So, perfect, is the standard for Xbox One? Things are becoming clear...
No but te rabid fanboys seem to claim Titanfall is perfect when it's far from it. It's a great game but not even close to perfect.
Idk if i have seen anyone call it perfect really. That would be a silly statement. This article is dumb :/ atleast the headline anyway. Not gonna bother reading it
@ Allsystemgamer The picture you are painting is an argument of hyperbolic opposites. Perhaps the game is neither perfect nor causing us to lower our standards. One person saying something is perfect does not justify another in saying it is terrible; a rational gamer will judge the experience on the merits.
kind of like all the fanboys saying infamous is perfect? neither is but if people love a game they're gonna react like that, big deal.
I think he is referring to the somewhat undercover xbone fanboys know as "professional reviewers" such as that Adam Sessler guy that gave this game a perfect 5/5 score, then gave infamous:SS like a 3/5 I think... Ridiculous.
The title is misleading, the entire article is about titanfall being a incomplete game sold for $60, and gamers (author included) are embracing it, and what if it becomes a trend.
I've seen WAY more people (most of which have never played and will never play the game) calling it a COD-clone and mediocre than people claiming it to be perfect. My thoughts: it's the most fun first month I've ever had with a multiplayer game. It's not perfect. Hell - it's probably not even the best game I've played in the past year. But every time I play it, I have an enormous amount of fun, which is why I am a gamer in the first place.
It's the highest scoring retail game on metacritic so far this gen. But of course it isn't perfect. Even if it was, it's an MS exclusive, and hence will never be claimed as perfect. But with games like inFamous sitting at 80% and Titanfall at 86%, you know it's definitely a GOTY contender. The gameplay of Titanfall does bring a new standard to reviewers. Playing such a fun game gives a new perception to how next gen gameplay should feel like.
Just like you claim infamous second son is you joke that game is far worst then the other 2 made sucker punch here -1
Perfect or not, it is the only game this generation that I play for hours on hours and cannot stop. There hasn't been an online game since Gears of War that I play like that! Is it perfect? No game is, but it sure as hell is addictive and the highest scoring game on current generation console! So it might not be perfect, but it sure as hell is the best out there right now on current generation console!!! >D
Sorry PS4 fanboy, but Titanfall is awesome. It's also available on PC and the X360, but thanks for attacking the Xbox One you little fanboy, please come again!
Same can be said about infamous,both games have flaws but both games are fun as hell
Man people are still hurt over Sessler's Infamous review? LOL Sheesh you kids need to grow up and move on with your lives. If Sessler enjoyed Titanfall enough to give it a 5/5 then so be it. How does him giving Tfall a 5/5 and Infamous a 3/5 affect your enjoyment of Infamous?
Don't worry Guys we both know when Halo 5 drops Xbox fans will abandon TF :/.
This is a joke. XB1 fans expect more articles like this or XB1 Doom/being sold off. There had been too much positive XB1 news lately, especially today. Mainly the SF has to reset the balance.
@ Army of darkness Why is that redic? It's his opinion. Just like you think he should have given Infamous a higher rating. It's your opinion, not fact.
Just another article proving how jealous ps4 fanboys are. They have nothing better to do, so they continue to trash a game they'll never play... If the game made no impact and PS4 fanboys have no interest in it, why is this such a hot topic two and a half weeks after release? By the way, what top game reviewer gave titanfall a perfect Score? At this point, the only hype is coming from people playing the game and word of mouth, so I guess it's a pretty good game. One X1 fan says to another X1 fan, "this game is awesome, I love it!" and they both agree and smile and play some more. A Ps4 guy listening in jumps at and yells "those bots are dumb, 6 vs 6 is weak!" same old ps4 jargon... That's what all you ps4 guys sound like. This game has nothing to do with you.
This article is awful. He complains because nobody could explain why the IMC and Militia are fighting each other. Who flippin cares!!?? Why were Red and Blue fighting each other in Halo? Did that matter or affect the game in any way? Do you think any of the millions of people playing Call of Duty care what team they are on and what team they are matched up against? The answer is no. You shoot the guys that on the other team and try to win the match. You don't stop at the beginning to think about your motives first, you just play and have fun. This is ridiculous.
I agree. It's far, far , far, from perfect. It's basically a 792p clone of Call of Duty with mechs. Period.
uh pon4 i never said infamous was perfect. its a fun game and i didnt like 1 or 2...youre reaching out of thin air
Can someone please explain what make infamous a higher standard? Because it's got nice graphics and its single player? I mean, this is the dumbest article.
Well, I would think every dev wants their game to be perfect but I see your point. The article is more about how the perception of titanfall as perfect (or near perfect anyways) masks some trends that are ultimately bad for consumers/gamers. The headline is directed towards those blinded by hype, not those who see it for what it is.
Titanfall isn't perfect and nobody said it was (I think), but it's a very good multiplayer game. Simply put... NO game is perfect. That's why I frown upon reviewers that give 10 out 10 on games. No game deserves a perfect score.
Think the point is that its only a good multiplayer. That it does one thing right, but lowers the standard for everything else. Like surrounding narrative, reason to fight, or even excuses for weapons.
Well then if TF is a very good game than so is COD. And its gots a SP mode. So technically its a better game
Strange thing, the author is point out Xbox One, but not PC. Anyways, of course the game is not perfect. When did it need to be perfect. There are tons of games that are not perfect, but hella good.
Might i add everybody was fine and dandy and as a matter of fact encouraging not to add multiplayer and let the developer create their vision when it was announced The order: 1886 was a single player only game. http://n4g.com/news/1450512... But Titanfall on the other hand gets docked off points for not having a single player.
More like the general lack of content you're expected to pay full price for. Few maps, few modes, few weapons, few titans. A forgettable campaign the game could have done well enough without. And it's- obviously- worthless without the internet. Even among online only titles, Titanfall is very low on substance. Do you think The Order will lack for content or longevity, particularly compared to other games in the genre? Well, you might.
Thing is, it doesn't get docked points. It's been reviewed very well, with people still ignoring key faults and design flaws, lack of content, performance issues etc. etc. etc. It seems to be reviewed more subjectively than objectively, when there needs to be a key balance of both. You just watch when PlanetSide 2 comes out on PS4. Watch it embarrass Titanfall in terms of content, scope, ambition, persistence, graphics, performance - and at a zero cost barrier to entry. Watch it get lower scores. Watch the double standards.
Xbox fans don't believe Titanfall is perfect, but it's a pretty damn good game for a new IP. I don't see any standards being lowered. @DigitalRaptor "You just watch when PlanetSide 2 comes out on PS4. Watch it embarrass Titanfall in terms of content, scope, ambition, persistence, graphics, performance - and at a zero cost barrier to entry. Watch it get lower scores. Watch the double standards." Wow. Not only are you spouting off about the superiority of a Sony game that's not even out yet, but you're also launching a pre-emptive "media bias" conspiracy theory just in case it's not reviewed as perfect (like you believe). Remember the article a few days ago? You're a perfect case subject in what I was referring to.
cosplay as a reason? I gave up reading at that point.
Yes it is perfect to some people and to some its not. I enjoy titanfall I think its an amazing fps and the most fun I have had with one since mw1. Now I am currently making my first play through of second son and to be honest its a snorefest to me. The sound is muddled and to be honest I think GTA 5 looked just as good if not better and was a better experience than what I am currently experiencing on second son. Does that mean second son is lowering our standards? Its getting rave reviews and many people feel the same way as me. The answer is no this article is just garbage
Lol. GTA V looked just as good? Can I have some of what you're smoking? And nobody has ever called inFAMOUS SS a perfect game, yet tons of people have called Titanfall that when it's not. So what's really lowering standards? I'm having fun with both but servers are almost completely dead for Titanfall on PC and it's only been a few weeks. inFAMOUS SS, being a single player game, I don't have to rely on other people populating the game and it will be fun years from now while Titanfall is gonna be dead. And just one look at your post history and I can see a ton of hating on the PS4 and its games. Don't even spew your BS.
I was accepting your opinion as ok, Titanfall is more your type of game than Second Son. Thats ok, I understand, each to their own, some people are Elvis fans, some people are Beatles. Then you said GTA5 looked just as good. Dude, with all due credit to Rockstar, they created an amazing world, but no. And more over, I cant believe anyone that actually play the game would actually believe that. You know, you shouldnt call yourself Truth if your going to say things like that.
Want too know what's "Lowering Our Standards" in gaming a call of duty game that's released every year.
You are wrong, it is not COD that lowers game quality. The blame goes to the gamers buying it on a yearly basis.
Thats funny, cuz this is COD in a different coat of paint. You people are funny. So easily fooled
Titinfall is great
Agreed only got it 2 days ago having a blast on it :)
The game is Perfect, stop the hate!
I applaud you for speaking the truth. A lot of people on this site get ragey when you don't praise it as the coming of christ. It's a half decent game but it was severely over hyped.
People on this site get ragey when you don't praise Titanfall? lol okay. What site is this again?
hoorrayy lets talk about it some more since nothing else to talk about in gaming during this next gen console... people these days...
It's a good game but it's definitely overhyped. I think MS and their fans were really banking on Titanfall to be the next "Halo" and become this mega system seller. Sorry but that just hasn't happened. It's a fun game but it's not Halo or Call of Duty.
Titanfall will never live up to Halo being a multiplayer only game, at least with Halo you get an incredible multiplayer experience as well as an awesome single single player experience every time.
Can we move on to different topics? Seriously there is an article about how either its overhyped or its the best game in the world. Nevertheless, these articles should have been submitted weeks ago and are just click-bait. You either like it or you don't and move on please. People are way too obsessed trying to prove a point that won't make a damn difference in the long run. So please n4g stop with the Titanfall articles its a critical and commercial success already.
I stopped playing multi player after Call of Duty 4. I started again because of Titanfall I fully agree that their should be private lobby's from the start. Game play well OMG I've never had so much fun and that what's it all about.
I hope they really improve on it with the sequel and make an all around better game. We will see with TitanFall 2
More with the "slippery slope" mentality? Really? We're still talking about that?
Consider my standards lowered then, I love the game and have been playing the heck out of it.
I'm just left wondering why the devs, when fully knowing their new franchise would be in direct competition to the 'big names' in FPS, why they would leave TF with so little features, weapons, and customization. I think they knew full well that they weren't going to be championing the competitive realm either - so cutting down on those things for strictly balancing does not seem to make sense. I hate to compare the game to Call of Duty, because I believe COD has already set a terrible example for the gaming industry, but even TF pales in comparison to what COD can offer. And those developers have an entire singleplayer campaign to juggle as well! And somehow TF only manages to have the same amount of maps, weapons, and in some cases less in term gamemodes, clans, and other features. I get it, the game is fun. But did they seriously spend all their time getting it to run, and be fun - that they couldn't do all the things that even lousy tacked-on multiplayer (on singleplayer franchises) have managed to pull over before them.
I can appreciate what you are saying. I also think people forget this isnt a huge studio. They have COD pedigree but are pretty small team for AAA standards these days. Also, I think a lot of what they accomplished is lost on the average person. if you think about it they are rendering a world from a perspective of a human and instantly rendering it in a 40 foot tall robot view seamlessly. draw distance perspectives are totally changed and they are demanding the system flip flop back and forth from those viewpoints constantly. Balanced weapon systems For both human and titans as well as a fluid parkour are all impressive. one last point it should be noted that COD offers a ton of game and can do so because the game has sold so well over the years its only black mark is the fact that it hasn't changed much over those years.
Titanfall is fun depending on who you ask. Is it perfect... not by a mile. However it became increasingly fun when my coworker accepted a challenge to be number one at our company in reference to ranking up and playing in a party.
I don't get it! Everyone figures we're suppose to stop talking about how good/bad Titanfall is? We've been hating on Call of Duty for years now - and rightfully so.... then Titanfall comes along and offers a even less robust Multiplayer features, and without singleplayer, and we're supposed to just roll over and accept it as a critical success? Don't get me wrong, I enjoy the game. But we are most definitely lowering our standards when we praise TF. I don't like MP being tacked onto my beloved franchises. But many singleplayer franchises - albeit less fun - have had mulitplayer that offer more robust features than Titanfall - a MP dedicated franchise! And before anyone says no other game has wallrunning and mechs - which may be true - why couldn't they have offered more player customization, more weapons, clans, ect? In comparison to COD (which shouldn't be regarded as a high bar, by no means) - TF lacks a lot of MP features, and is in fact quite bare bones. Now, I will concede that the bare bones model services TF in a few different aspects. But I think they could've fit in more content, especially seeing as MP was their only focus!
Seriously, there's more substance to the multiplayer in Uncharted than in Titanfall. That's a problem. But a lot if people don't want to talk about it, for some reason.
Why is that every known sony fanboy on this site has a problem with Titanfall? Don't answer that, it was a rhetorical question. I do find it hilarious though that not to long ago most if not all sony fanboys couldn't wait for this game to "eventually" come to the PS4. Then when it was set in stone as a Xbox exclusive, in came the negative downplaying as Titanfall now doesn't offer enough gameplay for the "gamers". Once again sony fanboys speaking on behalf of the whole gaming world.
Rather than Sony fanboys, it was people in general that thought Titanfall looked fun. But that was before we learned more about what the game would be. What I find hilarious is how Xbox fanboys label anybody and everybody who finds and voices fault with Titanfall can only be an Xbox fanboy. They don't even bother to address the problems people raise. By all means, continue to live in your delusional world. Continue to ignore any problems with anything related to Microsoft. I've actually played Titanfall, and an basing my comments largely on this impression, augmented with the many who have come to similar conclusions, regardless of their console preference. Where's your firsthand account? Where do you think the game excels? Where do you think it fails? Oh, that's right. You don't actually bring such content. Your intent is solely to discredit by way of straw man arguments. At least make up some BS sling the same lines of whatever I'm talking about.
I wouldn't agree with that. While I haven't played the game yet it does look pretty fun, however, nothing revolutionary. But comparing it to Uncharted MP is a bit of a stretch. Having said that, there are flaws in the game, but I think people are purposefully ignoring them because they need the game to be a success for the xbone for whatever reason. --------- Don't bother, Hicken. Maniac can't be reasoned with. He'll just spout out some counter arguments that make no sense, while frothing at the mouth and giving you multiple, immature insults.
@Hicken Oh yea, I forgot you went to some club or bar and played a few minutes of the game and came away with a complete impression of the game. Lets not even mention how you were setting up to hate this game even before you actually got your 10 minutes of hands on by stating past comments of you being disappointed of the lack of single player, the 6v6 and it being overhyped. "But that was before we learned more about what the game would be." We? speaking on behalf of the whole gaming world again I see. "..label anybody and everybody who finds and voices fault with Titanfall can only be.." No Hicken, I only label well known, completely bias sony fanboys who have willingly admitted to this fact like you and fellow classmate JessupJ there of being Sony fanboys. I don't think there is any doubt that you are a Sony fanboy. So calling you one just because of your hate for on Titanfall isn't some put down or unfounded accusation. You don't find it hilarious that you and JessupJ two well known infamous sony defenders don't see what all the fuss about for a game that has won many awards, can only see the flaws and doesn't understand why the media isn't more critical of the game. Is there a reason we can't find you two being more critical of any Sony game? I speak on games I have actually had time with. I give my opinions and observations then. I try not to bad mouth or troll games I haven't touched and I definitely try not to bad mouth any game just because it's over hyped or exclusive to another system. I think that's the big difference between me and you. I can play a game and not have to set it up for failure just because I prefer another console.
Agree with most of what you said but the bottom line is Titanfall is NOT worth 65.00 like other games with richer feature sets. Everyone wants to dismiss the critics by using the excuse that the game is "fun" but this is as bare bones as it gets and the fun doesn't last long enough to justify the price of admission we as customers have been robbed by the hype that this game was never going to live up to. Praising a game charging full price with half the offerings of COD or BF4 IS setting a bad precedent for future games.
The thing about price is it is subjective. You may think it is not worth the $60 but there are probably many people who do. The beauty of a market is once all those who wanted it day one for $60 and are willing to pay that without any complaints buy it, the demand will drop and so will the price to bring the demand back up so the sales keep coming. If a game is not worth its value to the majority then the price will have to drop if the publishers want their game to remain relevant. Not relating to you really, but just want to say. The worst thing I hate to see covered in a review is price, because everyone has a different idea of what the value of a dollar is. If a reviewer knows how to review a game the reader/watcher should be able to draw that conclusion themselves.
true, multiplayer was their only focus, and as the article suggests all those resources they saved on not having to make a single player/coop campaign should have been channeled to the online mode, for a more robust package. If titanfall had a coop mode, then I would truly be jealous, as it is, it really is just multiplayer, and BF4 more then fills that need. IMO BF4 is better than titanfall, im just not into the whole run n gun gameplay
You pretty much nailed it. That's why I think it got a pass by most reviewers.
It's hard to set standards for xbox fans.They like to move the goal posts a lot, i find.
Smh, the problem is not that titanfall is an 'incomplete' game that costs $60. The problem is that all games launch at $60 regardless of the value it actually brings to customers. If a number of people see it worth it to buy a 10hr SP Only game for $60.... Even if it doesn't offer much replayability. How is it fair to say a MP game, that will hold your attention for several times that can't also be worth $60. At the same time, there are games that have both modes that I wouldn't pay $60 for. No 2 games are created equally. Yet we have a silly pricing standard that encourages people to place a value on games based on the number of items checked on the box. It's crazy! Infamous: SS might take you 20hrs or so for 2 playthroughs. I'd say that's worth $60. But Assassins Creed IV offers a longer playtime, more to do after the game is completed, more collectibles, and even has an online MP. So does that mean that Infamous is over priced in comparison? No one would argue that...
Not necessarily true. Sly Cooper, Puppeteer. Sony sold these at $40. If MS wanted to, they could dictate the cost. PlanetSide 2 comes out free of charge on PS4 and embarrasses Titanfall in terms of content.
Sure there are exceptions, but the fact is AAA games are generally priced $60 regardless of content. And generally, it's not the AMOUNT of content that dictates whether or not consumers will think a game is worth their time and money... It's about the strength of the experience. Despite, the 'lack of content' in TitanFall, people find the experience so enjoyable, that they want to experience that content over and over again. That's where the value is. Here's another example, uncharted and Halo3 released in the same year. Uncharted had short (but excellent) SP campaign. Halo3 had SP, a co-op mode, forge mode, theatre mode, and a highly regarded competitive MP mode that brought people back for hundreds of hours. Both games were $60. By your logic it embarrassed Uncharted in terms of content, but no one would dare claim uncharted was overpriced...
