Like nothing I have ever played before? Really? Its actually a really bad mixture of several games I have played before... lol Sorry to tell you but this game is not the future of FPS gaming. Its basically COD with a different setting and mechs thrown in... Almost everything you see in TitanFail has already been done in games like Planetside 2. And even the mechs were done in the original Planetside. lol

People don't seem to realize that you don't need to buy a new PC to play this game at high settings.  PCs from 2007 with  E6600 can still play most any game at top settings better than Consoles.  That is, if you had a top/built machine in 2007 or maybe just upgraded the video card in the last 5 years to a decent $200 one.  No need for a Xbox 1 or building a new PC.  May have to wait a few months just cause Microsoft wants to sell Xbox to all the impatient crack addicts

 in Game footage it can seem like the same old same old. I'd have to reference Far Cry 3. I didn't like the previous installments that much, but the gameplay and button layout of 3 were sweet. It's all about the mechanics and how it feels when you play. that is why I beg others to demo it before raggin it.

I wonder how many xbox fans know this is mulitplayer only no single player game. $60.00 for a mulitplayer only game is it worth it.

Jealous Sony fanboy comments are HILARIOUS!

Oh yes, send out the blonde girl. That alone will get a lot of male gamers to take 100% faith in anything she says. Its evidence by the fact I see so many comments on here that are nothing but "she is cute" so its obviously working.

My favorite game for next gen... I am not jumping in next gen at once, but this title has me soo excited.... mmmm, wondering how that's going to work on xbox 360, I hope the experience is as I have seen (though I know graphics will be reduced)

Oh boy.  another freaking multiplayer game.  Just what everyone wants,,,,,,, NOT.  Just another game to ignore.

When I think about it, most of the games I'm actually excited bout on next gen consoles are also coming to PC, so maybe my best choice here would be to buy a new PC for all the big third party games and a Wii U for the exclusive first party Nintendo titles...

Why do people complain it looks and feels like COD?

Do people not understand Titanfall is created by the people made COD back when COD was actually good? Before activision forced them out the door and hired only developers that would listen to their mainstream demands.

Looks like cod with mechs... Another generic multiplayer fps i will avoid but you just know it will go on to sell millions!

A little bit off the topic but if you order GTA V from the Microsoft Store, you get 1600 Microsoft points ($20) which can be used on Xbox Live. I'm using that $20 credit on Titanfall digital D/L on my Xbox One. Oh yeah don't tell the Sony fanboys about this Deal. They will some how rationalize this deal is not better than the 75% off Bully, GTA IV or the Warriors.

Abbie's cute.  The game: not so much.    I don't understand why people are gushing over Titanfall.  Looks exactly like Call of Duty with some mechs thrown in.      Are there any outdoor, forest environments or lakes, countryside to fight in, besides this bland walled-in city?    Everything they've shown is grey, brown, with absolutely no color or personality whatsoever.   Very, very bland.    I'm glad I  pre-ordered a PS4.  I won't mind missing this.

Looks like a lot of things I've played before.  I still don't get the hype with this game.  Just another MP FPS ultimately.  A few gimmicks doesn't change that.

I have a personal issue with games being this gray. It makes me want it less. Like Fallout 3.

Plus I like to hear about a couple of rebels makin good after they break out. I'm gonna spend top dollar and preorder.

@RICHARDuk I'm sure that it won't be an issue considering those same people shell out another $50 for DLC packs that are only multiplayer.

@RICHARDuk Don't forget the $500 (plus tax and warranty) it's gonna set you back for the Xbox One it self.

@wallydog63 you clearly underestimate the importance of multiplayer in console gaming.

@Tiwill44 what is boring about it specifically?  looking through your game ratings I see very similar games scored 8-10.  one extremely similar game scored 9.5 o_O

@Johny_47 it looks like an insult to PC gaming , i am not gracing my PC with those crap graphics . It looks too much l ike a console game.

@toffifee Glad you are not the only one , i found that game really depressing to play too long

@RICHARDuk @Ministry4390 thats funny... how much you paid for your "top pc"? certainly not 500 bucks bro so your point is invalid unless you have unlimited resources and access to parts/ pc changes others do not :) just saying... in any case youll be waiting 6 months for a game you seemingly really want on your ps4. 6 months lol this comment is laughable at best

Tiwill44

@Kickable Also, what's boring about it is the gray, dull color palette, the tired FPS formula (you shoot other people and that's about it) and the bland gameplay which is essentially Call of Duty with wall jumps / double jumps. And there's nothing else to find boring because there's nothing else to see here.

Tiwill44

@Kickable Uh... which ones exactly? I don't see how Killing Floor is similar to this.

Kickable

@Tiwill44 @Kickable We don't even know the extent of game modes Titanfall is going to have, it's team based too, and we don't know how often it'll get updated.  Unless I missed something.  So "dull" is still just based on minor aesthetics something that won't stop people from playing.

I think the overwhelming praise for this game is a bit hasty too tbh but I don't know if it won't have as many or more fun aspects than a game like TF2 either.  It already has more freedom of movement and meaningful(allegedly) story aspects mixed into multiplayer, can't say that about many popular shooters let alone TF2.

Tiwill44
Tiwill44

@Kickable But that's the point, TF2 isn't dull. It has a somewhat interesting art style and easily recognizable characters, fun team-based gameplay, frequent updates, etc. I don't play it that much anymore but it's far from being similar to this game. Literally the only thing they have in common is the fact that they're both multiplayer FPS.

Some people don't like cartoony games, I'll give you that, but at least TF2 has some qualities beyond that; you even said it. Titanfall, on the other hand, well... it just seems very bland. To me, there's nothing new or interesting here.

Kickable

@Tiwill44 @Kickable Color palette?  You don't remember all the shit Team Fortress 2(the game I'm referring to when I said you gave 9.5 to a similar game) got for being all cartoony, but those same people still played the hell out of it?  It's a nitpick that took a backseat when people realized the game was great in more important ways, not a roadblock.  The washing out isn't even as close to jarring as TF2 style was for people.  Comparing the 2 games now is pointless at this moment, but there is enough fundamental similarities between the 2 to make you saying "I don't know why people play these garbage games" very strange.  It's fine if you're that discerning but many other gamers are not even close.  I'm bored to death in most multiplayer FPS the past decade but this still looks fun.
