The most exciting multiplayer shooter in recent years, held back from greatness by its questionable staying power.
In its current form, then, Titanfall is perhaps more of a step forward for shooters than a giant leap. But that still represents the most positive momentum seen in the genre for at least five years. Quite simply, if you feel like you're in danger of falling out of love with multiplayer shooters, Titanfall is the game to win you back.
Titanfall excels at making every moment and every action a fun one. It is a breath of fresh multiplayer FPS air.
It could do with a few more ancillary options, and a more interesting backstory, but in terms of online gameplay Titanfall is now the game to beat this gen.
Titanfall blends familiar concepts with innovative ideas in remarkable ways, leading to a nearly nonstop supply of awesome moments. But for as fun as it is, you'll likely find yourself wishing Respawn was more ambitious when it comes to game modes, since there's a good chance you've captured enough flags for one lifetime.
A fitting introduction to what the new generation of multiplayer gaming can achieve
Exhilarating player movement and a brilliant blend of two distinct combat styles make Titanfall a thrilling shooter.
Titanfall has all the makings of the next big thing
Titanfall's focus on player mobility and big-ass robots sets it apart from other competitive shooters and makes much of the game look like one big highlight reel.
It's fast, fun, fluid, and a fresh way to play what was becoming a stale genre. And it makes you feel good.
