    Titanfall 2 goes for feel above all else, and it feels fantastic.

    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.

I would be one disappointed fan if this one does not turn out to be a market success (especially with EA launching BF1 at the same time). Respawn has really gone out of their way to incorporate feedback from its previous installments. Some of them being:
    1.) Single player campaign (7 hrs long but has a lot of heart, and is way better then any COD and BF games have done so far, including BF1)
    2.) Put a lot of depth in their MP gameplay & customization
    3.) Free DLCs - we as gamers need to appreciate this fact, not a lot of developers do this now a days

    This one is an easy grab among the three (i.e. including COD: XYZ, BF1). And as per my standard one of the best science fiction based FPS till date.

    Pros: Good quality and great graphics. Good multiplayer, but amazing campaign. One

    of my favorite stories in a console game. The story makes me wish they would make

    another story and new game even though this game is basically brand new.

    Cons: In multiplayer there are a lot of people who lag and it throws you off quite a bit.

    Rarely, but still possible, there are a few crashes. There should be more maps in

    multiplayer and the maps they do have don’t connect with the game except for the map

    called Complex.

    The creators of Titanfall 2 are a company called Respawn with association to EA

    Sports. The console I play on is Xbox 1, the game runs very well with it. It is a first

    person shooter with many other characters to play as. The game itself is one of my

    favorite games to play. It almost never gets boring. To buy the game new for Xbox it’s

    about $59.99 same with PS4. The game is amazing you should try it.

    I got the game as a present for Christmas and what I found out was that it’s a

    little too easy to level up, and that you also play against G10.49’s(which is the highest

    level you can be) and other high level people. Which in some cases might not be super

    good. But playing with the good guys only makes you better, so that can be good or

    bad, if you like things easy. Each game lasts 10 mins or sometimes you join a game

    that already started. Titan-fall 2 has about 12 different game modes. The most played

    game mode is Attrition or Mix-tape. Attrition is literally team death-match and Mix-tape is

    just a bunch of other game modes, but it will choose a random game that is in it’s

    database and will join you on any of the game modes.

    My experiences with the game are pretty good, only a few times I get a little mad

    when I die, but those are human errors not the game. When I got the game for

    Christmas The first thing I did was play the Campaign, which I thought was good. The

    setting is on a planet called Typhon and time wise the whole story took place within 18

    hours. The main criminals are these bounty hunters. They are working for this big company called the IMC. The IMC takes land from the 9th Militia and destroys it. Your mission is to stop the IMC from using a super weapon on the planet Harmony. You are accompanied by a Titan named BT-7274. That's the basic knowledge you need to know for the game. I would recommend this game for people who like to play Call of Duty, Battlefield, and Destiny. This game is not good for kids under the age of 9 because it shows parts where people get blown to pieces and heads shot off. They may not be so happy about the game when that happens.

    Fine sequel. Threw the first part after 30 hours of a game, I am not a fan of mechanics of COD in a multiplayer. I waited for the second partFine sequel. Threw the first part after 30 hours of a game, I am not a fan of mechanics of COD in a multiplayer. I waited for the second part only for the sake of a singlapleer, I remember single games in COD to Infinity Ward disorder. Titanfall 2 ruined EA (as I hate this publisher). It is impossible to release a game in the temporary iterval between games of the COD and Battlefield series. And still the single game Titanfall 2 excellent story for 6-7 hours with a storm gameplay. A gameplay which surprises. The last 4 missions are taken place on one breath. One of the best games of 2016 which many did not notice and missed. Very much I wait for the new game Respawn Entertainment on Star Wars. Expand

There's a full-fledged campaign with a narrative that's much easier to follow, explaining the IMC/Militia war on what is known as the "Frontier" (life away from Earth as humans push to populate and reap the resources of other planets) and the intricacies of Pilots and their Titans. Overall I find the narrative to be a solid selling point of the game, though at least in its early-goings could use a little polish. The overarching theme feels a bit like Pacific Rim but doesn't always land the intimacy that the many facets of the story are aiming at. That's not to say that it's bad, or even just so-so - I found it to be pretty engaging (I hadn't expected a whole lot from this side of the game). A lot of the crew making this game are remnants of the team(s) involved with Modern Warfare and Modern Warfare 2, so the quality that's there is of no real surprise. However, while the campaign is the new blood to the series in its still-infancy, the multiplayer continues to be the most honed of the game. Though Black Ops 3, Halo 5 and Advanced Warfare have taken their stabs at improved mobility in the midst of fast-paced combat. There's a few obvious additions to multiplayer: more weapons, new abilities, new Titans, new maps... mostly expected of a sequel. But what's really special is how these additional elements are tastefully added to the already-competent mix to help further motivate a game that's big of movement, strategy, and big-metal combat to broaden its horizons without deviating from its roots. You'll find that Titanfall 2 firmly entrenches itself as the new behemoth on the block, challenging Call of Duty, Halo, and even the fantastic Battlefield series by being more imaginative than the competition. Lastly, you'll find the environments in Titanfall 2 to have considerably more detail. It's mostly nuanced, but level design is noticeably improved over the first game. Lighting effects sometimes catch your eye and nearly pull you out of whatever moment you find yourself in, only to be snapped back sharply when a couple transformer-looking mechs come steaming through, forcing you to strategically proceed or get the heck out of dodge. Titanfall 2 does a lot to be better than its foundation-setting predecessor - converting missed opportunities into good ideas, not trying to be everything to everyone but simultaneously taking into consideration fan feedback to begin to hone what I think is going to be called the best shooter of 2016. If you loved Titanfall already, you're just going to love Titanfall 2 more. If you were on the fence before or just couldn't fully embrace Titanfall for the long-run, this game could seriously change your mind. Only those with a great distaste for this genre of video games will walk away without any feeling of satisfaction. Expand

    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.
