    Titanfall 2 is everything for which you could possibly wish to find in a sequel, answering all of the negatives of its predecessor. While short in length, the campaign is an exhilarating ride that showcases everything that made the first game feel so refreshing, and the refined multiplayer will keep you consumed for months to come. This title is a must own for any first-person shooter fan.

    Titanfall 2 builds on the promises of the first game in every way imaginable. Rewarding gameplay innovations remain intact, providing consistent thrills in both multiplayer matches and the campaign. Fans of the genre will find themselves blown away by the unique level design, even if the narrative fails to stand tall.

    Cleverer and more creative than the first, this truly complete Titanfall is a game-changer. [Christmas 2016, p.71]

    Titanfall 2 is everything you would expect from a sequel. Packed with more adrenaline, tons of action and new titans. The new multiplayer progression system is a major change along with the new campaign. Titanfall 2 feels like a step forward into the franchise.

    Overall, I had fun with my time with Titanfall 2. The single player campaign is a huge improvement over that in the original game, and although it starts slowly it does eventually come around and provide for some enjoyable gameplay. The multiplayer gameplay is a lot of fun, both as a pilot and at the controls of a Titan, but a lack of modes may ultimately hurt the game's longevity.

    Consistency is a problem for Titanfall 2 in general, and it's a game that seems to struggle with a confident direction for its changes. The end result is a collection of fantastic mechanics across its campaign and its multiplayer that often feel hamstrung by difficult to understand design choices.

    I've got more than 100hrs in first Titanfall, which was in my opinion a really refreshing game to the genre. Because of this my expectationsI've got more than 100hrs in first Titanfall, which was in my opinion a really refreshing game to the genre. Because of this my expectations where very high when I ordered TF2.
    All that I can say right now is that my expectations were even exceeded.
    MP part is at least as fun as in the first game plus better and bigger maps and I love the new perks, finisher moves, new Titans, skins, customizations etc.
    All I can say about the SP Campaign, it's just stunning... really, JUST STUNNING!
    Besides that you always have fun while playing, you can really feel, that Respawn here put 100% in the whole game.

The movement feels very smooth and the campaign is engaging, something you would want to finish in a long sitting. The best part about the campaign is the part where you can easily time travel in the press of a button. The multiplayer is something to always come back to with many maps and the enhanced movement. This game is a big improvement from the last which had a lot less content. Expand

Apart from beingTitanfall 2 is an outstanding game, and if you are a fan of the FPS genre, I recommend that you go out and buy this game. Apart from being exceptionally fun, EA listened to its fans and gave us more content and value as well as removing the season pass from Titanfall 1. As for the overall gameplay, it's even more fun and polished than the first one. Wallrunning still feels great and they gave us many more abilities and weapons to use. However, I was curious to see how the wallrunning and titan gameplay would work in a campaign mode. I was completely surprised, as it is one of the best campaign modes I've played in a while, and it is the best part of this game. The missions, while mostly linear, never feel boring or repetitive. There is much more than just running and shooting. You strategically use your cloak and wallrunning abilities to evade enemies and get the drop on them, which is really important when you're playing on hard or master. And to break up the gunplay sections, they include some extremely well designed and innovative quick timing and jumping puzzles as well as time travel mechanics. The two missions that stand out to me are Effect and Cause, where you have the ability to work your way through a facility by jumping back and forth between timelines, which is important because there might be a door shut or a fire blocking your way in one timeline, forcing you to quickly jump to the other. Switching timelines is seamless and can be done with the click of a single button. I don't want to spoil too much of the level. The other mission has you navigating through a facility making prefabricated homes. Precise timing and wallrunning is essential here, and there is often more than one way to reach the next objective. Things are not always clear to you and you have to work it out for yourself. The game ends with an awesome chase sequence where you are jumping from ship to ship with your titan. It's all in first person, so these moments can give you make you tense up a little. As for the story, it's nothing amazing, but it is certainly entertaining. The relationship between you and your titan is well done. He never feels too much like a human, or too much like an uncaring robot. You can choose your dialogue, and he'll take your comment extremely literally like a robot should, and then later, he'll crack a sarcastic joke and it just throws you off a little and helps you feel more attached to him. Overall, there is never a dull moment in the campaign. However, it is quite short. I beat it in about five hours, and it is a little too easy on normal. I actually played it again on master and it took me about 7-8 hours that time. I recommend playing it on at least hard. Multiplayer, while extremely fun, is not quite perfect. They do include a ton of new weapons, modifications, abilities, whole new titans, and skins for your pilot, guns, and titan. That is much appreciated. The maps are designed well just like the last game. Pilots can stay competitive against titans if they know how to traverse the map. However, they did make changes that I wasn't happy with. Titans in this game feel incredibly weak. They die extremely quickly compared to the last game. If you're playing attrition and you're on a **** team, the match can be a nightmare. The entire enemy team will be in a titan because your teammates don't want to help you do damage to them. When you eventually call in your titan, you can get surrounded and killed within a matter of seconds, even when you're using a titan that has max health like scorch or legion. It can be extremely annoying. I don't like how they made titans weaker. A good titan player in the first game had the ability to take on multiple titans at a time if he used his abilities well. Now, it seems much harder to do that, unless the enemy has no idea what they're doing. They took away burn cards, which I wasn't too upset about, but they replaced it with a special ability with a long cooldown. It's not a bad thing, it's just not as unique as burn cards were. As with titans, you can no longer customize a titan loadout, but you select from a wide range of premade titans with unique abilities. These titans are all fun and different in their own way, so I didn't miss the option to customize too much, especially since I'm sure they were trying to balance them. 1v1 titan matchups are as fun as ever, and if you're outnumbered you can use a new "core" ability that can nearly wipe out an enemy titan. Overall with multiplayer, if you like fun fast gameplay but also playing smart and strategic, you will love the multiplayer here. I hope this game eventually gets more sales, because it deserves it.

This sequel felt like a complete game from day one. Respawn Entertainment added a single player campaign that felt truly inspired, while multiplayer was expanded upon. Fans of Apex Legends should seek this out as it is a prequel to that Battle Royale shooter. I would rate this with a 9 out of 10. Expand

    ok so having played the original all the way up to level 10 I was so looking forward to this ... and boy was it worth the wait!

    played about an hour of the single player campaign and hell it is good. Linear for sure, but it works really well. level design so far is excellent as are the graphics (xbone). Gameplay wise it's fluid and feels more mature than the original if slightly slower.

    Jumped into some MP to see how that's progressed and it's awesome. It's not a out and out fast as the original but Attrition feels epic. Grinned from ear to ear when I called my first titan down.... boom! game on!!

    oh and in a world of multi-GB day one patches TF2 scores big with it's minimal 88mb patch :)

    so far I'm giving it 8/10 as i've only spent about 1 1/2 hours with it. I've got to get to grips with the new aspects of MP but overall I'm really, really impressed.

    Way too much rubbish filler in the story mode. For God's sake, I didn't buy this game to just wall run endlessly and jump on platforms withoutWay too much rubbish filler in the story mode. For God's sake, I didn't buy this game to just wall run endlessly and jump on platforms without floors to my death. On some levels you can't even see where you're supposed to wall run to even after dying many times so the runner is useless.

    It requires endless repetition to get it right not skill as it's just a matter of luck if you get it right.

    No enjoyment whatsoever, a tedious task.

    Waste of knee, waste of time.

    Should have bought Call of Duty or Battfield at least I would be playing and not jumping through endless hoop after hoop so to speak.

    Terrible filler and terrible company that puts out such trash and wastes my good money on a wall running demo.
