    Possibly the worst sequel ever

    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.

    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.
