    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.

It has a story with depth, building a relationship with the player and taking you on a journey. Support shooting mechanics, and range of interesting weapons to get the job done.

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.
