Titanfall Review

As we all know by now, Titanfall has finally been released. In case you’re wondering what the overall game entails, watch this video for a detailed explanation.

Brief Summary:

Just as we mentioned in prior posts, Titanfall is a multiplayer only game. The gameplay has really introduced a lot of fresh ideas in regards to its movement style and mechanics. Since the game requires you to be online, you need other players in order to play.

Initially, there were problems with connecting teams within the campaign. Respawn then went on to assure us that this was a small bug which was fixed overnight.

There were also lag issues during gameplay and odd connection drops. These issues were also fixed and as of now don’t really seem to be a problem.

Ok, so let’s move on to the game itself. The overall action is really fast, fluid and inventive. The maps and movement mechanics really show a different element which this game brings to the table.  Also, the action is very exhilarating when you’re playing as a Titan.

There are 5 gaming modes within the game which are known as Attrition (team death match), Hard Point (domination), Capture the flag, Last titan standing, Last pilot standing, and Variety mode which is basically a combination of all 5. This enables gamers to keep playing.

Overall, this game really seemed to live up to all the hype that is seemed to build up.  The guns, pilots, and Titans all mesh extremely well together making for a completely fast paced and exciting first-person shooter experience.

On the other hand, there is some room for improvement.  I personally would have liked to see more game modes, especially when you compare it with other first-person shooters out there.  Not to say that this is necessarily a bad thing, it’s just something that I feel could have been a bit better.

I also think that the story line was not really as exciting as I thought it would, though the gameplay action and combat really seemed to make up for this.  So while no game out there is completely perfect, I feel that this game is a real breath of fresh air as a whole.

The Latest Titanfall Highlight Video

The new Titanfall is almost here and I just can’t wait to get my hands on it.  From what I’ve seen so far, the gameplay, graphics, and storyline look simply amazing!  I can honestly say that this game looks an awful lot like Call of Duty, with exception of the Titans and distinct weaponry.

I think that my only gripe is the fact that it’s only going to be multi-player.  I’m a big fan of single-player games and would have liked this game to have a single-player option as well.  Though Respawn founder Vince Zampella has already stated that although Titanfall will be multi-player only, it will still have a single-player type of storyline.

In his own words, this is exactly what he had to say, “We make these single-player missions that take up all the focus of the studio, that take a huge team six months to make, and players run through it in eight minutes,” Zampella said. “And how many people finish the single-player game? It’s a small percentage. It’s like, everyone plays through the first level, but five percent of people finish the game.”

It will be interesting to see how these single-player type missions will unfold while playing in multi-player mode.  Sounds pretty interesting to say the least.

Here is the latest highlight trailer which I just happened to stumble upon the other day.  I really liked it and just thought I’d share it with everyone.  Enjoy…

Titanfall Gameplay Trailer & Facts

The new Titanfall is an action packed first-person shooter game.  This game shall be multiplayer only where people from all over can battle it out with each other.  The  exact release date is set for March 11, 2014.

Titanfall will encompass various multiplayer elements such as one on one combat, group combat, and Titan combat.  While playing you have the choice of fighting as the pilot himself or as the Titan.

When fighting as a Titan, the pilot climbs inside and gains complete control over where it goes and how it moves around.  Though Titans are not as agile as the pilots themselves, they are stronger and harder to kill, especially when the force-field is activated.

Despite the fact that the Titans cannot jump off walls and climb on buildings like the pilots can, They can still sprint really fast, use shoulder rockets, and deflect gunfire.  The great thing is you’re not restricted to playing one way.  You can switch between playing as a Titan or a pilot.  The choice is yours.

Below are the 3 different Titan Classes within the game:

Ogre:

ogre

The Ogre is by far the most durable and heavily armored titan in the game.  The offense it possesses is unmatched when compared to the other ones.  Keep in mind that although the Ogre is a heavily armored tank like machine, it tends to be a bit slower and not quite as stealthy as the others.  I would say the Ogre is best used during heavy battle scenarios.

Stryder: 

stryder

The Stryder is by for the most agile and mobile TItan of them all.  Speed and agility are its main attributes.  Having said that, it still posses massive shooting capabilities.  The Stryder is best used when you want to combine agility with great firepower.

Atlas:

If you’re looking for state-of-the art weaponry and exceptional agility, the Atlas is the better choice.  This Titan combines the best of both worlds.  It’s more agile than the Ogre, and possesses better firepower than the Stryder.  The Atlas is ideal for situations which call for rapid assaults, tactical support, and agility.  Haymond Robotics refers to this Titan as “the multi-role Titan.”
