Mini Game Review: Titanfall

Never mind the 75+ awards it won last year, never mind the other critics saying that it’s more than what I’m about to say, never mind the hype and listen to your good old friend the One, True, Omnigamer: Titanfall is Call of Duty: Modern Warfare with MechAssault with a hint of Brink added in – and that’s it.

 

 

 

Not that’s a bad thing mind you, like CoD games; Titanfall is incredible amount of fun. The combat is well-balanced as players control the agile, adaptable pilots and imposing, game changing Titans. The battlefields are large and varied (they had to be for mech fighting action) so smart pilots can create ambushes or quick escapes when things don’t go your way and Titan can use buildings for cover against enemy Titans or pilots with anti-mech weapons. They even done new things like streamlined the story into the multiplayer (due to the fact that Titanfall doesn’t have a single player) so while you’re fighting they play through the story. Sadly though people with something like this, I expected more. This is a flagship title for the new Xbox One; a physical reason why players (despite the controversies) choose this system over the PS4. Everything said and done, through the standard multiplayer match types, the uninventive weapons, the cookie cutter class customization, and not even a graphical update – Titanfall doesn’t measure up as next gen.

Fun’s fun but now is the time to step it up, and today this title fails. Fortunately its pluses out weight’s its minuses so it doesn’t fail outright and the game could become next gen thanks to future DLC (or at least expand the story), but for right now this game ain’t worth the $60 plus tax (thankfully for me I got the Xbox One Titanfall bundle, so basically I got the game for free). Rent it, have fun for a weekend, then return it; the future is now – but not here. Yet.
