Conclusion: It's safe to say that Titanfall is the first highly-anticipated next gen (or should I say current gen) game for 2014.Developed by Respawn Entertainment, Titanfall received some huge hype at E3, and it was well deserved. Although the game is not perfect, it's heading in the right direction to be one of the iconic game franchises of this generation.
Excerpt: On foot I am a nuisance. A pilot on the space frontier, I use my exceptional mobility to clamber from street level to rooftops in a matter of moments; my jet-boosted belt and wallrunning proving useful tools to escape the barrage of death awaiting at the hands of the Titans. These heavily armoured robots drop from orbit on a whim, armed to the teeth with explosive weaponry ripe for killing.
Excerpt: The hype behind Titanfall has been massive as the lumbering giants themselves, looming over the shoulders of every other game as we slip into the start of a new generation. Having tasted the frenetic combat, I can’t help but join in the chorus of praise.
Pros: A welcome evolution for arcade shooters, Spectacular, heart-pounding gameplay, Looks and sounds worthy of the next-gen title, Well optimized.
Cons: Poor support for Clans and Friends., No offline or bot-only modes.
Excerpt: The genesis point of Titanfall can be traced back to 2010. This is when two former Infinity Ward employees, Vince Zampella and Jason West, alleged that Activision unfairly fired them and did not pay them $36 million in unpaid bonuses. Soon after, the duo filed a wrongful termination lawsuit against Activision and founded a new studio, Respawn Entertainment, which Activision says was a ploy to force themselves out of the mega-conglomerate and join up with another -...
Excerpt: Before we get started with this review I should put it right out there - I rarely play games online. Sure, I like the competition and the ability to play with friends from all over the world but I like to enjoy my games on my own terms and not have to deal with muting the mic whenever the majority of my opponents opened their mouth. That being said - I still enjoyed the hell out of Titanfall .
Summary: Is Titanfall worth buying? That's a definite yes, for people buying it for the console or for Western audiences. However, at Rs. 3,499, the game does feel exorbitantly priced for PC gamers here.
Pros: Tremendously fun gameplay, Even inexperienced players will have a lot of fun, Solid performance, No online connectivity issues
Cons: Expensive, Should have had more game modes and maps
Conclusion: It’s impossible to discuss Titanfall without dealing with the massive amount of hype that proceeded Respawn’s re-entry as it were, into the first person shooter genre. Created by the original team that created Call of Duty and redefined what it means to be a multi-player shooter with the COD4:Modern Warfare , Titanfall was hyped as though it was the awakening of the Cthulhu, and R’lyeh itself was rising out of the waves of the Pacific Ocean.
Conclusion: Titanfall is a great, fast-paced shooter that introduces just enough new elements to the core recipe so that it feels fresh and exhilarating once more. It might have worked even better with a single-player campaign or some more attention paid to the modes or customization options, but it's still quite worth your time.
Pros: +Great parkour elements for pilots, +Extremely varied maps, +Novel mix of infantry and titan combat, +Great balance across the whole game
Cons: -Story could have used fleshing out, -Colors are a bit washed out, -Matchmaking system needs a lot of work
