Titanfall has nine months of hype behind it, but it's got a stale genre's worth of expectations to live up to.
Keep them coming!.... The internet is overheating with these high numbers, congratulations Respawn! What a nice way to take revenge on the COD years ago Mr Zampella.
I agree TF is on a wave of success and if it wasn't for the Globe and Mail giving it a 70/100 then its metacritic score would have been much higher but ohh well can't please everybody. Still man 15 places have given it a 90/100 or higher 9 in the 80/100 and then like I said there is Globe and Mail from Toronto. So overall it appears to be a critical success and I am sure that most of gamers who have been eagerly awaiting TF's launch will help to propel it to an overall success for Respawn, EA and Microsoft.
Videogamer.com's review is the best I've read.
tbh should be more 8 than 9's...and more than 1 7. this games is awsome. but ita also a nexr gen game and should be rated as such. its fun factor is through the roof! it really is...but falls short in all other catagories when compared to other next gen fps. and with fram rate problems res infiriority bad ai and limited game modes in a mp only game is is a sin. no map voting..just sin after sin that other fps would never get away with.
Lol Polygon. Very nice score either way.
polygon...they are so non BUYest. i'm surprised they gave it a 9 frankly
Arthur Gies' review words and score do not match. http://www.p4rgaming.com/wp... His review is ecstatic with the joy and wonder of the game and its perfection but yet it has a 9/10! He has a grubby reputation as a shill, and there are all those questions about Polygon's secret sponsorship. As all the evidence is getting louder it seems editorial have decreased his score to prevent the mounting pressure about the website being a shill unit. EDIT: Check the website. There are at least FIVE Titanfall articles that celebrate the game that have been posted in the last few hours!
ohoh. I guess some site won't see their paycheck this month
no 10/10 from Polygon? Guess not enough $ from MS side.
I stopped at Polygon.
Doesn't seem like you did, otherwise, how else could you have made that comment?
JUST thinking the same thing :P
You know you can comment on articles without reading them. people do it all the time here.
Implying you know exactly what context I was using 'stopped' in? I could have stopped eating a sandwich at Polygon.
@ SIRHC13 Right. I figured when you said "stopped", you meant that you "stopped" running in place to read the article. Am I right? Geez, people around here assume to much.
I'm surprised a 10 wasn't given, but that would've been too obvious. .right Captain? Lol
bareboned mp game - 9.0. TLoU - 7.5 Seems legit.
Lol...that's what I was thinking That Last of Us review was horrible, not because of the low score but like everything he wrote, for example the weapon sway even though it was upgradable, contradicted him self. I love how on Metacritic Polygons reviews is up there STRAIGHT away, in front of other sites....I mean thats uncommon for a newer review site.
Their Killzone review was bad too. A 5/10? Hahaha That would mean it's unplayably bad.
I expected Polygon to give a 50/10.
They love Microsoft
Polygon complained that the framerate of COD: Ghosts on PS4 ran 'too high' and knocked down its score. So if Titanfall's fps is lower than anticipated, would they lower the score...or up it?
Whats wrong with these guys?? Always biased towards XBOX games compared to playstation, we wait on what they would give infamous.....
InFmous lacks guns and isn't on Xbox so expect a low score from them. I wonder if Titanfall was also on PlayStation® would it still be as hyped or getting treated like god of gaming. I'm gonna say no.
It would probably, but what I doubt is that if any unknown studio would have done the game that it would get that much hype. I'm not saying the game is bad or anything but a lot of the hype comes from who is doing the game.
Don't forget the bland, repetitive game play! Go in to area, clear area repeat. New power, new area, clear area, repeat. I'm sure that will land it 10s all across the board.
Arthur Gies can't count to 10, but it was a nice gesture for him to try.
I expected a 10 from polygon
All reviews are bias though?
I tell you what this has that CoD hasn't? - firikkin' screan tearing. FAIL.
And its still way more fun than cod
My titan will be ready in 8 hrs
Great reviews. This is is the bomb. Just a few more hours to go!!!!!
Sony fanboys hurt. Of course the excuse now is Polygon is paid by MS. lord forbid they see the other low scores they given xbox titles. Nope, those dont count for so e reason. yup looks like MS is handing out good score review money to all these sites. And the front page warriors are having a hard time keeping that spin going.
Actually long before this POLYGON has given great games poor reviews. They are quite simply a crap website with nothing credible to say. Regardless of what the full game is like.
Hey if its titanfall you want then get it who gives a f what people say. Finally bought an xboxone and im happy with it beside my ps4. Its time for change.
