I love the single player campaign and am looking forward to playing it again. I only have two minor gripes; 1) the title screen for the first Titanfall was beyond epic and I would have liked to see if back in Titanfall 2 instead of a boring static title screen. 2) The facial animation in TF2 gets the job done, but seems a bit dated. Beyond that, it's a class act. It even has a nice Total Recall reference. :)… Expand

I've read some reviews stating that the game felt bare before the DLC was released. I've been playing it with the season 1 DLC and I can't stop playing it. When Tom Clancy games work, they REALLY work. When I play online, the players I meet remind me of the kind of player that used to play Ghost Recon on Xbox back in the day. R6S with season 1 is the game that should have been released last December. I've been waiting a while for a decent shooter that's more methodical than what's in the market, R6S feels like it's testing how smart you are. The title comes as a complete surprise for me, certainly one of the best games 've played this year. I hope Ubisoft gets into the practice of including year 1 DLC with the core game for 60 dollars, it definitely helps.… Expand

A wonderful game with a beautiful look, I didn't want to go to sleep. This title, I think, will be engaging to gamers who enjoy exploring without much hand holding.

The atmosphere is dreary (I know, it's an amegeddon theme), there's just not much payoff for the effort. It's a LOT OF EFFORT just to level up or find weapons and armor. Short on fun, but the good news is that if you like load screens you're in for a treat. I guess if you enjoyed Fallout 3, this game's your kind of thing. If not, try it at a friend's house first.… Expand
Average User Score: 6.5Dec 4, 2015An interesting game that feels like it's taking two steps forward, one step back whenever I play. The destruction and physics in this game isAn interesting game that feels like it's taking two steps forward, one step back whenever I play. The destruction and physics in this game is just a lot of fun, vehicle and aircraft handling is great, has a pretty wide assortment of weapons and tools, and the characters are likeable. In a season where Black Ops 3 and Battlefield 4 are my go-to games, Just Cause 3 fills a space well. There are a couple of weird things. The actions slows down in some of the more hectic gameplay. Also, the load times are pretty long. I've been playing JC3 in the mornings and can scarf down breakfast in the time it takes to load the game from the start screen. It becomes a bigger hassle when retrying a challenge - it's enough to make me give up on the challenge altogether rather than wait. I hope they have a way of patching this because the game is outrageously fun. It's a great game in a season of solid releases and it deserves attention - a class act.… Expand

I didn't enjoy the single player, but I admire the fact that they tried to make it co-op focused (and the co-op works quite well). The multiplayer is more strategic than CoD has been in a very long time. I suspect that people who don't like the multiplayer are run-and-gunners. In this game, I think you need to use cover a lot more and understand the map. It takes getting used to, I've only just started to score at least middle-of-the-crowd in online matches, but when I got up to speed I started having a blast. And there's just so much customization in this game. CoD hasn't been this fun in a long time. Treyarch; please hire CoD4's or MW2's writers for your next single player campaign. Beyond not enjoying the single player story, the rest of the package more than make up for it for me. Well done!… Expand

Average User Score: 5.0Mar 18, 2015Franchise sequels, apparently, can't be made without some complaining that it's too derivative of the previous game. As a long-timeFranchise sequels, apparently, can't be made without some complaining that it's too derivative of the previous game. As a long-time Battlefield fan, I'm having a blast with Battlefield: Frontline and I don't understand the hate even by the gaming media. I know what a good Battlefield game is, and this one is excellent.
To address some complaints;
1) Some players are complaining that this should be DLC for BF4 because the assets are too similar to earlier games. Try to understand that in order for a game to fit in the Battlefield franchise, it needs to share certain aesthetic and gameplay similarities, otherwise it feels like a different game with franchise name slapped on it. If your issue is that it's not a drastically different experience from BF4, you may have some point because it's still a BF game and it has some of the same game modes like Conquest. Sorry, Conquest needs to be in every Battlefield game almost by tradition - it's expected.
2) In the single player, some folks are complaining that the stealth gameplay feels a little silly because bad guys get taken down very easily just for flashing a badge. So, it may be somewhat true but I'll be darned if it's not a heck of a lot of fun. When you stop and think about it, it's identical to practically every game in the Metal Gear series. It's by design - in MGS, Snake does all of these same things and the guards act the same way (i.e; myopic guards, guards to give up searching for you after 60 seconds, etc.) It's not a problem in MGS but it is in Hardline? I don't think so.
The game plays very well and is a leap ahead in single player campaigns for the genre. Maybe next year, making a BF game so similar to BF4 and Hardline won't be acceptable anymore, but for right now it still works for me.… Expand
Average User Score: 4.9Nov 12, 2014AC:U is an ambitious game and I'm not seeing almost any of the problems others are reporting. The game is just massive and there is a LOT ofAC:U is an ambitious game and I'm not seeing almost any of the problems others are reporting. The game is just massive and there is a LOT of content in it. Just the crowd AI and behavior alone is pretty startling. There's a lot of complaining because of framerate dips (which do occur) and glitches, but games that push the envelope always have these problems. People like to forget that Crysis, for the first few years after its release, couldn't be played at full settings on most peoples' PCs. Battlefield 4, the standard bearer in FPSs, had a rocky launch as well. But BF4, like AC:U, are important franchises and these problems get patched. I'm not sure why everyone is getting so carried away with some glitches or animation syncing issues, the reaction doesn't seem proportional to the problem.
I do have some complaints about AC:U. The "Animus" plotline was interesting in the first few ACs, but it should have been shelved permanently after the Ezio games ended. It hurts the series at this point, and if they can't have AC without it, they should think about retiring AC altogether because it's getting really old and reduces AC's quality in my view. The game also encourages users to use Uplay and has microtransactions as well - I don't care for either.
I like this game, I'm not sure what all the fuss is for. It must be a slow news week or maybe some people are just bored and need something to complain about?… Expand
