This topic is locked from further discussion.

This thread will become prettier in time -- for now, we'll see what we get.

TITANFALL REVIEWS

OFFICIAL HYPE: AAA/9.0

MetaCritic - 88

GameSpot -- 9.0

Joystiq -- 9.0

Polygon -- 9.0

EGM - 10.0

Other Reviews

Metro: 9/10

In Short: It could do with a few more ancillary options, and a more interesting backstory, but in terms of online gameplay Titanfall is now the game to beat this gen.

Looking forward to playing tomorrow, I've been missing it since the Beta ended. It will be my go to online shooter for a long time to come.

Great review. Im reading the game drops into the single digits on the X1 version from the Giant Bomb review. Good thing I'm getting on PC.

#14 Posted by yokofox33 (29373 posts) -

Nice. Looks great. Will pick it up the first time it hits 50 bucks or less. Don't wanna pay full price lol

Clearly shows Tintanfall's awesomeness.

#16 Edited by lostrib (34578 posts) -

Well I sucked it up and bought the game, hopefully it doesn't end up being $30 by the end of the month.

Too bad it looks like quite a few reviewers are waiting for the servers to go live before giving a final rating. The IGN review in progress does not sound like they enjoyed it quite as much as gamespot, with some problems with the number of modes, and lack of private games

#17 Posted by ghostwarrior786 (3887 posts) -

i dont understand how u can review an online only multiplayer game when its not even out to the masses yet. shouldnt they wait

anyway i couldnt give a sh$t what this game scores, remove the bots and i will buy it otherwise no thanks respawn

#18 Posted by chikenfriedrice (9887 posts) -

Awe cows will be hiding in their barns until it's safe to come out.

Great score!

#19 Posted by Seabas989 (10113 posts) -

Better then I expected.

I need a new PC.

#20 Posted by juarbles (801 posts) -

It's a COD clone in every aspect. Even in the score.

#21 Posted by TheFadeForever (1700 posts) -

@yokofox33:

Polygon: 9/10 http://www.polygon.com/2014/3/10/5467906/titanfall-review

It sure is quiet in here.

#25 Edited by Scipio8 (618 posts) -

Great, Xbox Once scores another hit, well done Respawn and Microsoft. Don't worry cows, you still got your best shooter Resogun.

#26 Edited by kuu2 (6970 posts) -

Online games get reviewed all the time without servers being live. Just ask BF4 which got an undeserved 8.

#27 Posted by yokofox33 (29373 posts) -

@yokofox33:

True, but I want to get it for the Xbox One. My PC is capable, but I just don't like gaming on the PC. Plus my friends are getting it for X1 anyway.

#28 Posted by lostrib (34578 posts) -

Nice. Looks great. Will pick it up the first time it hits 50 bucks or less. Don't wanna pay full price lol

its $50 at GMG with a code (http://www.reddit.com/r/GameDeals/comments/1zy7jk/gmg_titanfall_10_off_with_code_xxyb8xlhfv7366qfg8/)

Removing the bots would break the game, bots are not bad once you get used to them. Anyways, 9/10...awwww yisss bow down cows, the new king of multiplayer is here and it's not on poostation 4.

#33 Posted by padaporra (3393 posts) -

Interesting.

#34 Posted by jhonMalcovich (4533 posts) -

So basically PC Game Titanfall scores a 9.

#35 Posted by blue_hazy_basic (27385 posts) -

From the GAmespot review....I quote

"The overarching experience of playing Titanfall is one of rejuvenation and reinvigoration. The sprint speed, the arsenal, the game modes, and more are all firmly derived from some of the most successful online shooters of recent years. But by reinventing the way you move, Titanfall reinvents what it feels like to play a competitive shooter. The high-flying action intertwines beautifully with the brutish, tactical titan battles, creating battlefields that crackle with possibility. Titanfall is a leap forward for shooters, a game that combines the vibrant and new with the tried and true to create something special."

Which is exactly what we've been saying since the beta. time to shut crybaby, you got proved wrong.

Fixed for accuracy.

Definitely agree with you here! I'm waiting a week or two for user reviews before deciding on getting it for the PC

Lol GS reviewers are in general nothing but dumb noobs. I'll stick to real gaming sources that actually know what a real game looks like.

So basically PC Game Titanfall scores a 9.

The review was the Bone version. I'm sure the PC version is technically a 9.5 ;)

You're more than welcome not to grace GS if it makes you so sad and hurt.

Well they are all giving it around 9. So take your pick on who your "real gaming sources" are.
