    The best way to describe the gameplay in Titanfall 2 is fluid and precise.

    Titanfall 2 is everything Titanfall should have been – storified, robust, and sufficiently multiplatform. The real series starts here, and I’m surprised at how nothing at all feels phoned in or tacked-on.

    Intelligent, creative, and never less than thrilling, Titanfall 2 finally realises the series' true potential with verve and polish.

    One of the best first person shooters of the generation, with significant improvements in depth and longevity – and even a half decent story mode.

    Ace online action combines with a truly rollicking campaign in one of the year's shootiest surprises. [Christmas 2016, p.66]

    The story lacks depth, but the connection between the player and his Titan is worth the journey. The multiplayer, however, is almost worth the price tag on its own.

    The addition of a single-player campaign was a huge positive for this series, especially due to the bizarre twists and turns it takes throughout. In a year filled with outstanding shooters in both the single and multiplayer fronts, Titanfall 2 does just enough to prove it can hang with the others, even if it is re-treading old ground.

I really felt the impact of the robot - human relationship and I would recommend it highly for everyone who love shooter games.
    The game was not too short and not too long, very interesting plot, this game just kept and kept on giving. The visuals are basically photorealistic. The sounds are perfect. The options you have at any given fight are fun, you can nearly always throw a bomb for huge area damage while reloading. The stealth mechanic made the game too easy but only while you use it, and it have 1 minute cooldown, so it is basically a one minute cooldown auto kill which is very fun and balance. I died a lot of times, a lot more deaths than I would want but that just showing you that the game isn't only easy, there were frustrating moments. I don't want to spoil the story so I won't go into details but the story was so good that I was moved to write a review, it is that good. I see the passion and care that the developers have for this game, and it successfully pulled me into the universe they created. This game is cheap the prize I had to pay is nearly nothing for a game with these graphics, Now that I finished the game I could play a bit with the multiplayer which is excellent. I wish to you all that you buy and play this game since this would be awesome.

It’s a fun, interesting, exhilarating story that has good variety in the missions and good character development which sneaks up on you at the end. The guns feel great, and playing as a Titan feels weighty and powerful, as it should.

    The only negative I have is the campaign’s length, and for that, I docked it a point. If it were a few missions longer, it would have been a 10 from me.

    BUY THIS GAME!!!

    I love this game, it sticks out as definitely the best shooter of the year, but also the last few year. A little background on me: I am a huge FPS fan, and have put hundreds of hours into games like Call of Duty, Battlefield, CSGO, and many more. I did not like the first Titanfall, and My expectations were low with this game, especially for the single-player.

    This game blows anything from the past while straight out of the water. The campaign is fun as hell and trying not to spoil anything, BT can be very comical in his perception of the world around him. Multi-player is fresh and new; something that Call of Duty has tried to do for the past three years, and failed. They definitely listened to the criticisms of the first game, of which the were many. The main GM is Attrition, basically TDM. It's fast paced, balls to the walls action. to quotes Rags, "A still pilot is often a dead pilot, and that's something I enjoy. It can be a little overwhelming, but these complaints pale in comparison to the positives.

    This game has been completely underappreciated by a market of FPS fans who claim to want innovation and fresh game play, but continue to buy Call of Duty every year. This game was screwed over by EA and it really should have came out in early 2017, when people are looking for a new shooter to blow off the steam of Call of Duty and Battlefield.

    My complaints are minor, and most of them are my fault or can be solved by me. First the game will not start on true dual core CPUs. I had to install a separate program to fix this. I know the minimum specs recommend a quad core, but my Pentium G3258 is handling the game just fine, usually between 60-80 FPS in multi-player. This game literally runs better than CSGO on my computer. Second, I am getting a weird crunching sound out of my microphones which makes the game impossible to hear and unplayable if your trying to listen, this doesn't affect me too much as I usually listen to podcasts while playing games. Lastly, I don't know what is causing this but, every other game or so in the lobby I am kicked from multi-player and sent back to the main menu. It's no big deal as all I have to do is rejoin multi-player, which is surprisingly quick.

    Overall a bad-ass game, and totally worth your time and money.

    Story: short and sweet is the best way to put it, fun and non overbearing and doesn't takes itself so serious.

    Online; FIRE. Ive played
    Story: short and sweet is the best way to put it, fun and non overbearing and doesn't takes itself so serious.

    Online; FIRE. Ive played this years (2016) Call of Duty, Battlefield 1, DOOM, Overwatch. This is a close second to Overwatch's online game play. The only reason i'd put Overwatch ahead of this game is because I have never experience anything like Overwatch. Battlefield 1 is much slower and a higher skill is required to be have some fun. I really don't thing Battlefield is a game for everyone, you will need to put a bit more time in to the game. And their is no reason to even compare this to COD. COD is leagues under all FPS shooters that came out this year AKA TRASH. If you want fast game play, sharp gun play, and just overall fun. This is the game.

    I didn't even tell you about the titans this is just a game you have to play!

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. i saw a metric f#@k ton of people saying this game is worth playing and due to it being now on steam and on sale i decided to pick it up and... i now need to deal with a growing addiction.
    here is everything good about the game:
    + this game is unique in it's game play in every single point whether it be the fast movement of the pilots + or the sheer size and strength of the titans
    + not a single micro transaction in sight in and or loot box for weapons, upgrades or even skins
    + everything is just a no **** policy when it comes to monetizing the game, you want a skin? then pay + for it with money or buy it by playing the game and earn credits.
    + the story is cliche' but very impactful on the player ( why did you sacrifice yourself BT ;_;)
    + the map design and game modes are well thought out at the very least and invoke a feeling of joy from + discovering a new way to traverse the maps.
    + each pilot design and titan are designed in a way to make you powerful at certain aspects but have + weaknesses in other
    it has an insanely high skill ceiling but is fairly welcoming to new players
    the cons:
    some extremely minor stuttering on windows 10
    some weapons are somewhat imbalanced

    honestly this game is so fun and i can see this game having an extremely good Esports scene and i am shocked it hasn't gotten it.
    the only reason people give this game bad reviews are either stupid that do not know anything about the game or people who are keeping the score low enough so that it won't leave every other game in the dust
