Titanfall Review | Destructoid "One shall stand, one shall fall"

Destructoid - "Titanfall has all of the pieces to make a very nice FPS puzzle -- a wide variety of well crafted maps, a decent amount of familiar game modes, and a prestige system to hold the interest of veterans. In that sense, it's a very welcoming game that many disenfranchised genre fans will enjoy. Just don't expect anything monumentally different, or a worthwhile world to enjoy while you're having fun shooting everything in sight."

an 8? are you kidding me? an 8? Oh yeah, Jim Sterling is no longer at Destructoid.

7 is good. 8 is great. 9 is amazing. 10 is a masterpiece. So no need to bash the review. It is a great game. Play it, enjoy it, and take pride that you purchased a great game. I've played the game and it is great. Is it without flaws? No. Can I complain about the flaws? Sure. Matchmaking, inconsistencies, short linear story, non robust a.i., more loadouts, etc. However, the game is great to play and I'll continue to support it. Btw...did I say its great?

Jim Sterling also gave the game an "8" over at the escapist

DOMination-1682d ago

This score is stupid. After watching some footage the game is at least an 8.2 imo

What is wrong with an 8? That's a good score. The game only has multi-player to rely on, which won't be around forever... So, if you're not crazy about multi-player games, it's not a big deal. It sacrificed single-player campaign for a multi-player experience. It's a good multi-player experience, but nothing mind-blowing. Great, not amazing. That's an 8, which is exactly where it belongs. Really fun game, but not as wonderful without your friends.

Why should a game with no single player get a lower score? The game is made with MP in mind and only MP.

" The game only has multi-player to rely on, which won't be around forever"

Ummm, what? How do you think Halo, Gears, COD, BF, and KZ all stay alive? It's not to replay the story 50 times. MP is what keeps games alive.

He meant to say multiplayer servers will be closed, probably after 2-3 years.

Silly Mammo1682d ago

Game reviewers have become like music critics, they all seem to have an agenda and feel they need to insert themselves into their reviews.

DarkLord10031683d ago

So is an 8 too high or too low?

PONTIAC08G8GT1682d ago

^^^

Someone is smoking something lol

Almost every review has been 8-10 range so this falls in line with all the others. Def deserves an 8 or 9 and nothing wrong with that.

DeadRabbits1682d ago

8 is a Good Effort for a game on a pseudo next gen console that can only manage 792p.

Don't Knock It!

torchic1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

wow if malokevi, who was reeeeeally excited for Titanfall says it's an 8 then it pretty much is!

the way Microsoft and the media were going on it seemed as though Titanfall would receive TLoU-esque scores

malokevi1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

My excitement was justified, and 8 is a good score. I would err on the side of 8.5ish. The game offers more fun than any new IP I've played for as long as I can remember. But, there just isn't as much content as a lot of other games. If it was a more full game I would give it a better score. Seems unfair to give it a perfect score considering the relatively little content.

But, it does what it does and does it very well, and that's what matters. For me, it's the perfect package. Basically everything there that I need to enjoy it for ages to come, and more content on the way. Most games give me all that content, and I only ever end up playing the multiplayer suite. So for me, Respawn seems to have trimmed the fat.

Ignore Microsoft, ignore the media, build your own expectations. Personally, I always knew that this was going to be just another shooter. That much was always clear. But I love shooters, and this one is doing things that others dont, and doing them exceptionally well. Definitely has lived up to my expectations for it, a welcome addition to my XB1 library.

I'm having a blast right now. It takes a while to get used to movement but the freedom is awesome.

No_Limit1683d ago

WOW, some of the comments from destuctoid for the review is just crazy man, it is worst than other rapid fanboy sites.

I'll give it a 9/10, it is just my opinion but it it s the first must-have game this year on next gen.

medman1682d ago (Edited 1682d ago )

@nolimit
I disagree. Tomb Raider definitive edition is the better game, especially for those who never played the last gen version.

DJ1682d ago

The consensus is that it's a good game, I'm interested now. =]

generic-user-name1682d ago

Looks like the scores aren't quite matching the hype, although they aren't that far off either. Sounds like a solid title, competitive MP-only turns me off a little unless I'm playing with friends.

Titanfall-Dark Souls 2-Ground Zeroes-inFamous:SS

Great 2 weeks for gaming.
