Top Critic Average
A brilliant singleplayer campaign married to inventive, skill-intensive multiplayer that calls back to FPS classics of old.
It’s rare that a sequel evolves on every part of the original concept so consistently for the better, but Titanfall 2 is that exception. Its feelgood movement is the foundation for both the engaging action and platforming gameplay of its strong campaign and its over-the-top competitive multiplayer. With bolstered progression, customization, variety, and a fleshed-out story, Respawn has made good on its original vision with Titanfall 2. And bottom line, it’s just damn fun to play.
In a banner year for first-person shooters, Respawn delivers what might well be the best.
One of the best first person shooters of the generation, with significant improvements in depth and longevity – and even a half decent story mode.
Intelligent, creative, and never less than thrilling, Titanfall 2 finally realises the series' true potential with verve and polish.
Titanfall 2 is that rare game where both its single-player and multiplayer modes are exceptional and highly entertaining in their own ways
Titanfall 2 has the basics down, but loses much of the focus
Titanfall 2 is more measured and intelligent than its predecessor, but just as fluid and kinetic.
Bold enthusiasm for a game often summons skeptic or contrarians. Pay them no heed. Titanfall 2 is impressive. Its influence will ripple through video games in the same way that titles like Half Life or Halo managed in their time. Beautiful and bold, Titanfall 2 is the pinnacle of first person shooters.
