    Possibly the worst sequel ever

    Posted
    Disappointed
    • My Best Buy® MemberMember

    I have been playing video games for about 20 years and I have never played a worst sequel. If you played the original Titanfall and were thinking of getting Titanfall 2 I hope you read this before buying. Cons- Multiplayer. All of it. First off, the titans are actually less customizable than in the original, or at least they seem that way. All titans now come in preset load outs that are locked to a specific weapon. There are 6 different titans and 6 different weapons, but since each different chassis is locked to a specific weapon you can no longer mix and match to create your favorite load out. The secondary weapons and abilities are also much worse. As with the primary weapons they are all locked to a specific load out. While some titans have the same secondary ability options, they must be unlocked separately by playing as each load out. Some abilities, like the electric smoke, are no longer options that can be added but are instead unlocked as you are in a titan for a certain period of time or kill/damage other players, titans, grunts etc. Basically, being able to individually create your own titan from the ground up and suited to how you play best is no longer an option. Also, the weapons in TF2 in general are much worse than the weapons found in the original. TF2 did manage to keep the fast paced game play that made the original so fun but they seemed to try and make it even faster. The titans in TF2 are much weaker than in the original. You will be lucky to stay in one for even a minute, regardless of how good of a pilot you are. The titans are way to fragile for being massive high tech 20 ft tall machines. Part of this is due to some of the titans do not even have shields any more and just have a health bar that is quickly whittled down by even the smallest projectiles hitting it. Without the shields it is pointless to rodeo a friendly titan and ride around as you instantly get blown off. This affects some game modes a lot more than others but as a person who likes variety and plays with friends, this is really annoying. For a series based on titans, they really managed to make them seem useless and weak in TF2 which pretty much ruins the series. They are no longer to be feared as they were in the original. Becoming a good titan pilot and getting used to your weapon and load out and developing a strategy for fighting are no longer useful. As for pilot combat that too has become worse. Several weapons and abilities are vastly overpowered and you will find out which ones they are quick as every one uses them. With the weak titans and over powered pilot load outs the game has been reduced to a bunch of people running around like Rambo. The days of strategy, treading carefully and having to plan your movements and attacks that were the key to being successful in the first one are long gone. This has given way to putting a gun on your hip and running and firing without a thought in the world. What would have gotten killed instantly in the first is now how you win. After trying to give the game a fair chance and playing for more time than was necessary in hindsight, the game never got any better and just lacked everything that made the original so great. My friends and I have decided that if we ever want to have fun playing Titanfall, we will play the original. Pros - Campaign! If I did not buy this game for the multiplayer, this would have made the game for me. This was one of the best campaigns I have played in a very long time and was something the first Titanfall was definitely missing. If you are ever thinking about buying a Titanfall game, get the original. If you already have it then good, you don't need to buy Titanfall 2. It will only let you down.

    Bottom line up front: This game is different from the first, but this is a good thing and this game deserves all the praise it has received. The addition of a single player was much needed. The campaign is fairly short depending on which difficulty you play, but it is an excellent introduction to the game and it's mechanics. It is engaging, fun, and seemless. It brings back elements from old games where you had defined boss battles and gives a bit of nostalgia for the older generation of gamers. The multiplayer has had its ups and downs from the start but respawn had been highly active in ensuring balance and fairness in the game. You're always going to have your naysayers, and the game can den to have net code and server/client rock rate issues at times bit for the most part the gameplay is fast paced, exciting, and different everytime. The mechanics smooth, movement is smooth, and you always feel like you can learn more. The leveling up system has changed from the first and it is pretty basic and straightforward. This is good for newcomers but for those of us use to the first one, it feels bland. The lack of challenges in regeneration is sorely missed. The change to the titans was much needed. Many compassion about the lack of customisation from the first game, but the first game devolved into everyone using the same loadout and quickly became boring. This new style allows people to master a style that suits their play, or try to get comfortable with something new. The titans themselves have a rock, paper, scissors feel to them and each one had their best and worst matchups. You could be dominating one minute and then turn around and be facing your greatest weakness. This really forces players to think strategically and figure out how to best use their titan and set themselves up for success, or utter failure. The maps themselves have become more lane based, but they have included, and continue to include old maps. This again is to appeal to newcomers use to call of duty games. This helps with getting use to the games mechanics and the old feel is still there once you get use to the movement. This also allows for more predictable engagement areas and less chaos than the first one. This does not mean that you don't have to be as aware of your surroundings, far from it. Those who get good at the mechanics, movement, and maps can still reek havoc on players. This can be a problem for newcomers as this is a new concept for first person shooters. Even though call of duty tried to copy titanfall, it is call of duty players who seem to have the hardest time adapting. But I promise, if you can learn it, it is the most satisfying thing to be wall running and kill someone, drop down to execute another, leap up and fly across the map and into your titan and then destroy the enemy Titan that had been wrecking your team. You won't regret buying this game and you'll have hours of game time invested before you know it.

    By far the best shooter of 2016

    I played the original titanfall and was a fan but found the skill set needed to be competitive was far too high. I enjoyed it but I was never very competitive. I decided to purchase titanfall 2 after being disappointed by the last several call of duty's. Boy am I glad I did. The single player campaign was fun and had some truly original moments of gameplay. I don't want to ruin any of the moments but they were thrilling and took me back to the modern warfare 1 and 2 games. The movement is fluid and approachable but still makes you feel accomplished when you pull off a sweet series of Jumps, shooting and Melee. The story is pretty straightforward but the relationship between you and the Titan developed in a very organic way. The multiplayer is really where this game shines. I would consider myself a casual online gamer and often play just small short amounts of online due to getting frustrated. This game is so well balance that although I may never be one of the top players I still find myself feeling like I'm contributing to the match and not being out done by any particular player. This may be a downside for a highly skilled competitive gamer but everyone that I've talked to that has play this game really enjoyed it. The weapons all feel so different but one does not seem to give any type of real advantage than another. It really comes down to the style of play a particular player. The Titans are a different skill set than as a pilot. Those unfamiliar with the game a pilot is a human player taking on the role of a soldier. The soldiers are able to summon titans which are large vehicle killer robots that have their own unique weapons in skills. Playing as a titan requires a different skill set combat is less frantic and more about strategy and properly utilizing your Titans abilities. I really enjoy this aspect because it reinforces the concept of having to develop a relationship with your Titan The more you play with a particular titan more skilled you'll become with it. Overall I am ecstatic about this game. It has been years since an online shooter has really captured me in the way that titanfall 2 has. I bought both the newest call of duty and Battlefield one. I would say titanfall 2 is by far the best between these games.

    I played the original Titanfall on Xbox One and enjoyed it. One problem with the original game was that it did not have a single player campaign. Titanfall 2 does, and this is the biggest improvement in the game. Just as the original, Titanfall 2 has excellent graphics, runs smoothly, and the controls work great. It doesn't take too long to get used to fighting on foot as a pilot, or to control your Titan. The single player campaign is a welcome addition and gives the game more life. In fact, a large portion of the achievements are for doing stuff in the campaign. The campaign's story is not particularly interesting but this is a shooter, so that's to be expected. Still, it's fun and can help people get used to the game's mechanics. In my opinion, multiplayer is a slight letdown compared to the original. It's hard to pin down any one reason why I feel this way, but it just seems to lack the same fun factor the original's multiplayer had. It could be the maps, the pace of fighting, the selection of Titans, or most likely a combination of these factors. That is not to say it isn't fun, and won't give many hours of entertainment, it just isn't quite the same for me. Overall Titanfall 2 is a good game and worth the money if you liked the original game, or are looking for a good shooter.

    The Sequel You've Been Looking For...

    I am really enjoying this game. I had a lot of fun playing the original Titanfall. The one thing I felt was missing from that game was a single-player campaign. This game absolutely delivers an excellent single-player experience. I enjoyed the level design and game play mechanics quite a bit. It also has several brand-new Titan load-outs that are vastly different from anything in the original game, as well as many more pilot weapon and gear choices, as wells as the option to level up and and customize pretty much everything in multi-player. And there is a very large player base, (at least on Xbox One), and the longest time I have spent waiting to join any game has been less than 30-seconds. My only negative comment would be that in the single-player campaign, I didn't feel that the voice-actor that was used for the main character provided a very engaging performance. As you play the game, you are occasionally given dialogue options when interacting with other characters. His level of excitement, (or any emotion for that matter), did not match the situation that he was experiencing at that time, (such as piloting a giant robot for the first time). But his dialogue is a very small part of an amazing experience, and certainly did not ruin the game for me in any way. This is definitely worth your money.

    I enjoyed the first Titanfall a lot but didn't like the lack of campaign and felt the graphics and mechanics of the game were a bit "lacking". These are no longer issues. Titanfall is back with a refreshing offering compared to the new COD and others of the like. The game mechanics are extremely solid and fluid. Multiplayer is a great experience as you get several options of pilots and titans to choose from to get exactly the type of fighters you're looking for. It is a very fast paced multiplayer experience which includes wall running, sliding, double jumping and the ability to punch/kick players that make you feel like you're in the matrix. (Extremely satisfying) The single player is a very solid offering that actually kept me wanting to come back which isn't typical for a lot of modern games. I do wish it was a bit longer but I can't complain about it considering the multiplayer offering it has. The one gripe I have is I want more maps for multiplayer already. The good news is Respawn has declared that all DLC for Titanfall 2 will be free. I do hope you all will support this game because I hope to see it alive and well for years to come to fight against the CODs that lack imagination.

    After playing countless hours of COD over the years I felt as if there was a time for change and that change happened this year. This is the first time I have ever bought another shooter over COD and not only one shooter but TWO (I also bought Battlefield 1). Overall Titanfall 2 has the best mechanics of any shooter Ive play up to this point and the Titan aspect of the game is incredibly FUN. If anything this is one of the funnest games Ive played in years, I am genuinely having an enormous amount of fun just playing the multiplayer. The movement is smooth and fluid and the guns feel great in tightness and in overall strength. The Titans dropping in the middle of games changes the entire landscape of the entire match and it could be the deciding factor in many matches. I also decided to go with the digital version because this isn't a game that I would think of to trade in and I rather have it readily available for me whenever I wanted to play it, over having to get up and change a disk out everytime I wanted to play something different. Overall Titanfall 2 is an extremely fun game with better shooting mechanics that Battlefield and COD. Just hope that Respawn actually supports this game further.

    Presentation/Availability: Product was well packaged with no broken/opened box. There were many available at the store. Performance/Gameplay: My review is for the Xbox One. If you like the original Titanfall game (even though it didn’t have a campaign/story), you will definitely like this sequel and more. It has its own local campaign/story which was something we were asking for a long time ago. You don’t have to be familiarized with the first game in order to play this one. The local campaign/story is EXCELLENT!!! The variety of titans and weapons increases throughout the game, which makes it more interesting. Online playing is fast-paced but easy to play, even for the non-experienced players like me; I have a great time playing online. Image resolution (gameplay and theatrical) is very good and the sound is surprisingly good as well. I recommend you use a good headset with this game if you want to hear every tiny sound on the game. Customer service: Very good customer service. I was greeted by an employee as soon as I walked through the door. He took me to the product and I was out in no time.

    COD if COD was still making original content

    I've been into COD for quite some time now, but felt myself starting to pull away as of late; in part due to the stale game-play and in part due to the prevalence of micro-transactions in the game for multiplayer. It felt like in order to TRULY get ahead/keep up with those who are way better than me (read: most players), I either had to needlessly grind on maps that I wasn't really interested in playing, or had to spend my hard-earned $$ to try and get a good enough crate. All of that being said, Titanfall 2 feels nothing like this. The game-play is fluid and fun (in both campaign and multiplayer), and by the end of the campaign, you really develop a sense of attachment to your Titan. The multiplayer is consistently enjoyable, although I have been playing the Attrition mode almost exclusively. I tried pilot vs. pilot a few times early on, but that felt similar enough to COD where I decided to leave it be for a while. Once I get more time to play/get better, I will definitely be revisiting that game mode. But for what it's worth, the places where the game says it will deliver, it truly does.

    I never played the original titanfall because I don't do any online gaming but it seemed like it would be interesting. I was very happy to hear this game would have a single player campaign. I can honestly say it was a blast playing through it. I don't mess with the multiplayer so I can't comment on that aspect, but the single player mode was a lot of fun and had a great story. The graphics are very good for those who dwell on such issues. I prefer to focus on game play itself and this game delivers in that regard. The controls are very fluid and easy to pick up. Their were two or three times where the difficult ramps up significantly for a few moments, but other than that I highly recommend this to first person shooter fans, sci fi shooter fans, or people who like futuristic combat. It's a shame it did not sell that well, but I suspect that was due to being released so closely to Battlefield 1 (also a great game) and Call Of Duty Infinite Warfare (have not played yet). All in all a great game

    Call of Duty is like the big action blockbuster that is guaranteed to provide some thrills but won't offer you anything terribly new. Titanfall 2 is the action blockbuster that critics love, and should be on everyone's must play list. The reason the game is so good is several fold - first, it controls beautifully...which is key given the game's intense and rewarding sense of movement. There is a constant flow, but if I missed a jump, I never wanted to throw the controller - it was always my error. Second, shooting feels tight and impactful, which is critical to a game like this. Third, the single player is surprisingly, unexpectedly great. It combines elements of Portal and the shooting mechanics of its predecessor while delivering a sucker punch of emotional resonance. But it really is the stellar multiplayer that gamers will find themselves playing constantly. And with good reason - it's outstanding. And with the promise of free DLC, this is every trigger happy gamers must own game.

    For those who played the "campaign" for the original Titanfall, you understand what a joke it was. It was about as minimal an effort I've ever seen in a single-player mode I've ever seen in a game. I get that online multiplayer drives the video game world these days, but single-player campaigns are still important to many gamers, and the makers of Titanfall realized that. The campaign in Titanfall 2 is one of the best I've played for a shooter. The pilot-titan relationship is the focal point of the story as you work together to complete missions. All of the skills and weaponry are utilized throughout and will help in preparing you for multiplayer. The boss battles are a great way to work on your titan skills as well, as there is a bit of a learning curve in using titans effectively. Aside from the titans, multiplayer is nothing revolutionary but it is a bit of a different flavor from your Call of Duty or Battlefield games and far from a mindless run-and-gun experience.

    Going into Titanfall 2 after the original game, I was a little wary. I played the beta weekend and was interested, but some of the new game mechanics had me on the fence. As it turned out, these were founded as the game isn't quite as easy to get early on as the original. The titans all seem a little too fragile until you start getting the hang of the game. However, once you grind through those first few levels and start unlocking some better gear, the multiplayer field evens out quite a bit and suddenly you are playing a more crisp and refined Titanfall 1. As for the new campaign mode, The level design is fantastic, and while at the beginning of the game it seems like just another shooter, the certain elements are added which up the action into something a little more unique. Overall, if you're a fan of the original or looking to try something just a little bit different from the call of duties out there, I'd highly recommend Titanfall 2.

    Having not done any gaming in three years, I picked up an Xbox One S over the holidays for myself. In terms of shooters, I've only had the opportunity to Battlefield 1, Gears of War 4, and this game, which is my favorite so far. It has a fantastic campaign, albeit short, but I was completely infatuated with the entire time. The combat/character movement in this game is about as smooth as it gets. Last but not least, the multiplayer is also tons of fun, although I'm better as target practice. Definitely need to master the Pilot movements, and learn the general strategy of each Titan to be effective. I think the only major drawback of this game is it doesn't have the amount of online users as other titles. This game released shortly after GOW4, Battlefield 1, and just before the latest Call of Duty, so it's been grossly overlooked. Best thing you can do is spread your love of this game.

    Titanfall 2 takes the original and builds on it in almost every way. The campaign was amazing and had many moments that not only looked cool, but felt great to play. One thing to know about the campaign is that it stands around 6-8 hours. Personally I that was the perfect length, and it didn't overstay its welcome. The multiplayer continues to be engaging with nonstop action and ways to handle situations. With more weapons and titans the tail on this game is much longer than that of the first. When comparing it to the Call of Duty and Battlefield franchise, Titanfall has a sense of movement and freedom that the other series lack. There is cosmetic DLC that you can purchase, but as far as maps go they announced that they will all be free. At the time of this review, 1 DLC map has been released with the 2nd one on the way in the coming month. I highly recommend you try it out.

    Titanfall 2 is just fun to play, and that is the whole point of video games for me. I have always preferred a "boots on the ground" game but this game is made for this kind of movement system and it works. With Call of duty the movement seems forced into the game and suffers because of it in my opinion (infinite warfare is the first cod game I have skipped since cod4). I should have skipped at least the 2 prior as well. I would give this game a 4.5 is possible as the game is not perfect. I don't particularly care for the progression system. It seems lacking and overly dramatic for reasons unknown. I like that they tried something different but it just doesn't work for me personally. Also, I cannot pinpoint why but I don't feel the urgency to level up like I have in cod. Overall it is an awesome game and would be better if I could convince some friends to play as well.

    I had skipped the first Titanfall game because I was not interested in an online-only multiplayer game. When I heard that Titanfall 2 would have a dedicated single player campaign I decided to give it a try. I was very happy with the game and even find myself enjoying the multiplayer part as well. The campaign is solid, moves along at a good pace, has some interesting concepts and mechanics [POTENTIAL SPOILER: when you get to the point with the ability to jump back and forth in time i was blown away. This section heavily reminded me of the game singularity, a very underrated game, and Titanfall 2 used the time mechanic expertly, I only wished it would have been a longer section]. END POTENTIAL SPOILERS Overall this game is fun, fast, and BT was a cool traveling companion, hopefully they will make a 3 because I want more TITANFALL!

    There really isn't anything special about Titan Fall 2, other than it has a single player story line. Maybe a slight spoiler here.....give you a moment to contemplate reading on.... having to maneuver and jump while flipping between the past and the present was pretty awesome and hard and annoying all at the same time. The story line is nothing spectacular but keeps you interested for the time playing it. I have not completed the single player portion at this time and have not done the online. I did purchase this to see the single player story. I would read more reviews and do a little more research before purchasing this game so you will not be disappointed if you were expecting something grand. The graphics are fine, not the best out there, and the control interface in my opinion is a little sloppy.

    Titanfall 2 is a massive improvement from Titanfall 1. Titanfall 1 was the first mainstream AAA shooter to bring parkour mixed with FPS games to the table. It was a huge success on release with most FPS players owning a copy of it. The area where Titanfall 1 lacked was the raw amount of content that it had (guns, skins, loadouts etc.) and a singleplayer campaign experience. The Titanfall community told developers this and they truly listened to their fans. Titanfall 2 is a better version in every way. There is an absurd amount of unlocks, weapons, skins, titan loadouts, pilot loadouts and more. A great singleplayer campaign experience was also added. If you do not own Titanfall 2 and were a fan of the first or are new to the series in general this is a must have game. Thanks Best Buy!

    Ok hear me out. I gave Titanfall II 5 stars and I haven't even played it yet. My favorite old PC game was MechWarrior. I don't play a whole lot but I always wondered why there wasn't a single player game like MechWarrior. Suddenly I see Titanfall II and get real excited and go buy it only to get home and find out it will not play on my Xbox 360. I told you that I don't play a whole lot. So I am thinking I really don't want to have to return this game so I do the next best thing and go online and order [From Best Buy of course] a new Xbox One S 1TB Special Edition Battlefield 1 Early Enlister Deluxe Edition green console. So yes this game deserves 5 Stars even without having been played yet because it made this 64 year old guy feel like a kid again. You got to love it !!!!
