Why Titanfall 2 Fails To Match Its Predecessor

Since Titanfall 2 released last year, I’ve spent a good amount of hours both tearing apart the IMC in the campaign, and more so through multiplayer. Being an avid Titanfall lover, it’s the one title

It's my favorite fps this gen by a country mile. I liked the first one but 2 just feels so much better and the campaign was a thrill to play.

I hated the first one, maybe because I played it on PC. Attrition was really the only game mode you could play and seemed like all the scrubs were using that damn Smart Pistol. TF2 is easily the most technically sound shooter I've played this gen. It's a great game just wish it had a bigger player base and some kind of competitive mode.

@ FITgamer: people are STILL playing the Xbox One version. but yeah, never get multiplayer FPS games on PC. even player counts for games as big as COD die out fast on PC.

not sure what you mean by "competitive mode" all the multiplayer modes are competitive lol - try CTF Nitro (Capture The Flag) or Live Fire if you want competitive.

@TFxGod Like how COD has a competitive league. MLG/UMG tournaments. Smaller teams, make it pilot only, weapon gear restrictions. It would make the game way more popular.

My biggest problem with Titanfall 2 is that overall it feels less balanced than its predecessor. Some titans,weapons and abilities seem to be flat-out better than others. Titans no longer have shields and are less imposing. While kill times in infantry based combat are lower than in the first game. Due to the presence of a very well designed campaign. I personally think Titanfall 2 is better than Titanfall 1. However, the multiplayer of Titanfall 2, isn't drawing me in as much as the first game.

@ Sciurus_vulgaris:

"My biggest problem with Titanfall 2 is that overall it feels less balanced than its predecessor." - less balanced than the 1st game? where everybody's using Stryder, Arc Cannon & running around with Smart Pistols? lol

"Some titans,weapons and abilities seem to be flat-out better than others." - many weapons' effectiveness heavily depends on your skill & ability to use them. Northstar can be the most powerful titan in the game, if you're good at sniping. if not, tough luck. if you suck, Northstar will be hard to use & you will die in seconds. Same with Ronin.

"Titans no longer have shields and are less imposing." - idk what game you played, but every single Titan in the game has a shield except for Northstar. - level up & make your Titan all black (or whatever color you want) or get the prime titans & have a completely new titan model (which are very imposing)

"I personally think Titanfall 2 is better than Titanfall 1. However, the multiplayer of Titanfall 2, isn't drawing me in as much as the first game." - I agree that Titanfall 2 is better than TF1 but you should probably play it more than once before you pass judgment on it... ijs.

I've played the mp for about 10hrs.
