    Titanfall is a ridiculous amount of fun. Maybe it’ll be surpassed, but right now it’s the best game on Xbox One and one of the best multiplayer shooters ever.

    We feel like this is next-gen gameplay. Titanfall proves that there's still room for innovation in shooting games, and we've had a blast playing it. It could have had next-gen visuals, though, and then it would have been the bomb.

    It's exactly the game we all wanted it to be. As long as the Azure server infrastructure can keep up with demand, Respawn's idea will continue to work perfectly. Pilot v. Pilot, Pilot v. Titan, Titan v. Titan. All of the possible gameplay scenarios are compelling, fair, and fun.

    Titanfall is a great start to an exciting new franchise. Sure, campaign multiplayer is a disappointment and I wish there was a little more meat on the bones in terms of game modes and pilot and titan types, among other things – but the gameplay is outstanding.

    For a multiplayer-only game, Titanfall should have some amazing options and ways to play. But it doesn’t. It has a very healthy number of maps (15), but the lack of interesting new modes will make you feel shortchanged for not getting a single-player campaign. Hell, even shooters like Halo 2 from two console generations ago offer more in the multiplayer-options department...But what is there is so incredible.

    If you want something more from your video games or if you want to be transported to another dimension to learn the true role of an intergalactic soldier, you should probably hit the books. If Titanfall is representative of man’s aspirations, we’re going no where fast.

TheI'm not going to say much in this review, since I'm about to go back and play this beautiful game on my Xbox One. This game is so amazing! The map selection is diverse and monsters add a whole new level of immersion. They swoop in and steal the helpless bots and I cry with laughter. The gun selection may be minimal but it's still some of the best I've seen. The frame-rate is smooth at 60fps and never drops. I can't say anymore because I'm about to go play. See you on the battlefield brother! Buy this game now! This alone makes the Xbox One amazing. Expand

The whole pilot and titan sides of this game brings new dynamics to the gameplay and just add fast movement with that and yopu got a solid game. Respawn have nailed the balance nothing feels overpowered or useless. Though the campaign multiplayer could have used some more work. I hope the coming DLC will add to the campaign side of things as well as the multiplayer. Expand

While the game takes place in a futuristic setting, it is not ruined by gimmicks and unfair advantages (unlike Black Ops 3.) As a shooter, it is fun and satisfying, but the mech battles are the best part of the game. You can pilot your titan, make your titan follow and defend you, or ride on other people's titans. There are plenty of modes to choose from, but my favorites are Attrition (team deathmatch) and capture the flag. The game has two problems though. The first is that in every match, along with the human players there are AI players, which are very easy to kill and are kind of annoying. I would prefer an entirely human lobby. Second, there is no free for all mode. That is a disappointment, but for $8, Titanfall is absolutely worth it. Expand

    Starting with good the gameplay is astounding. The games free running pilots and the Titans go insanely well together. To get the most out ofStarting with good the gameplay is astounding. The games free running pilots and the Titans go insanely well together. To get the most out of this game, be creative with the free running. Don't just run somewhere on the ground, get the most out this game by wall running from building to building, climbing rooftops, just be creative with what the game gives you and if you aren't wow'd at first I don't know what to say. The game for me was a dopamine rush. It gets fast paced and exciting like no other game I have played. Now for the downfall. The gameplay is one of the best ive ever seen, however it drys out on you after a while. Every game can dry out on you after a while but Titanfall felt like it dried, not quick, but moderately. I think this is partly due to the lack of content in this game. It gives you only one game mode to play and that is online against other players. I mean wheres the single player campaign, the co-op, not too mention the multiplayer campaign is not captivating or worth paying attention to. They have introduced this revolutionary gameplay yet it lacks content and its hard to justify the price tag on this game. My final thoughts. Titanfall definitely has a revolutionary gameplay and gamers that are wiling to be creative with the gameplay will thrive in this game. However, its lacking content in a single player campaign, co-op, etc.

    They have released a survival mode update for Titanfall and it is decent. Going back to my thoughts earlier in this review, this survival mode should of been here since day one.

    This game isn't the zero that Sony Ponies are giving it, and it's definitely not the 10 that Xbots are giving it.

    It's a slightly better FPS than Call of Duty. It just has the unenviable task of being the first big post-launch game for a new console system. Anyone giving it a ten is deluded, as is anyone giving it less than 5. Only broken games deserve a score that low, and it's not broken. I deduct points from it for being online-only, not impressing visually, not staying steady at 60fps and having a disappointing 792p resolution.
