Once Dice fixes up BF4, I'm really hoping they finally add some dinosaurs! Oh yeah....Titanfall is COD with mechs you can rodeo like a cowboy!
Pretty sure in Red Faction (2001) you could use rocket launchers and C4 to tunnel your way up and down through mountains. In Battlefield 1942 (2002) you could hop in a jet and fly away into the sky, parachute onto tall buildings, etc.
Vertical movement is tooootally fresh.
I've now played it for a few hours up to level 14 (Max level it will allow you to get)..And I'm pleasantly surprised, Yeah the gun play is similar to COD but It's just a lot more fun the map's are you will be pleased to hear are a good size and designed well, Having said that you only get two on the Beta but looks hopeful and the jet pack/wall running and mechs etc works a hell of a lot better than I thought it would. Overall maybe not the totally original experience I and millions hoped It would be but when It comes out it will be well worth your time..
Just make a Vanquish sequel with multplayer and ridable mechs. That game is the definition of fast paced combat.
I played it for hours and it feel exactly like COD with Mechs when it comes to fighting, but the burn cards, Mechs, wall running/jet pack parkour, stealth and the just plain pacey fun of the maps made it pretty enjoyable.
@Joeguy00 the burning cards were a nice surprise. I thought they were collectables lol.
And the smart pistol is not so good as people say it is. Yea it good to kill grunts and specters, but not so much against pilots.
Im in the beta and its nothing to hype about, its fun dont get me wrong but it really is just cod with mechs. Except The weapon handling is really poor.
Seriously, someone is sabotaging Microsoft from inside.... It's impossible that they are serious about launching their new gen so outdated like that ! Microsoft has the money, but it appears that all their decisions are towards to destroy their video game market.
@dalua360 Even Xbox 360 and PS3 had 1080p, but it was up to the developer to make it work. It's the same here.
@Dulua360 I would've preferred 1080p but the Xbox One version will run at 900p natively that's good enough and combined with it's innovative gameplay this game will do well
@Stinger78 What's your point ? Do you really think that developers can still have that option? I believe this should be "standard" due to current technology ! And anything else, should be considered "lazyness" or "milking" !
@gottago42 I can agree with you that this game can be good and fun... All my complains are related to these specs presented by Microsoft, that aren't proportional to the expectancy of "new gen" capabilities ! I bet that Titanfall could run on Xbox360, and that's my whole point, new gen games should be extremely superior than 7 years old technologies !
Look's pretty fun, But I think It may get old fast and the cloaking is going to get abused to the 10th degree......Please no more "It's COD with mech's" comment's, Yeah we get the fucking picture!
@cuprashoe @dalua360 ok... I really wish that all the people in here could understand better what is my point... I'm not a hater, nor even a PS fanboy... I'm just frustrated that the gaming industry is not doing all the possible effort to deliver real new gen stuff ! EA was milking stuff for the old consoles( and they are famous for that ), but I really thought they would make a big "boom" when the new gen came....People should realise that all games can be "fun" which doens't mean they are good as they should be....
Ask yourself: " Do I like Call of Duty?" ... if your answer is yes, then you will like Titanfall as the formula is the same as COD, due to the creators behind the project. But, is this game really, really innovative and astonishing ???
@cuprashoe hey, guess what: Titanwall is COD with Mechs !
@Sam_021 BF2142 with the pace of CoD, and the agility of Mirror's Edge :)
That is what the editors are saying that makes this game fresh vertical movements. I guess they do not remember Quake where players were launched in the air and fight vertically. Titans are also not a new concept as seen in Mech Warrior and Command and Conquer 2. Titanfall is just the newest game iteration involving mechs.
@stephenferris88 The vertical movement in this game isn't quite the same as "Rocket Jumping".
@rajeevv67 Your equation is false because one thing equals two
This is TERMINATOR: A GHOST IN THE MACHINE
Take a look and contribute.
i hope they make some bigger maps and allow more people, because any feeling of epicness is ruined by small maps and way too few players from any gameplay ive seen
@blackothh try it... period... large maps crazy fast intense gameplay... corpses and chunks of flesh flying everywhere, cod-crysis-battlefield like action... gorgeous graffics... my only gripe- no campaign, dumb bots... still epic awesomness... no regrets preordering!
@BarbieFu @blackothhI dont need to try it, ive been playing video games for 25 years, I know a little bit about what looks like it plays good and what is just eye candy that gets boring after an hour. It also does not take a rocket scientist to realize that the only thing these guys accomplished with their modern warfare garbage game brand is to play their part of ruining the quality of the mainstream gaming industry. I dont expect them to accomplish anything of note with EA steering the boat this time instead of Activision.
@monza1966 try it, you just might enjoy it...
@markdg5 I make a statement to sony, I play planetside 2 on my pc.
More than call of duty with mechs??? Hmmmmm
Why there still are Instant melee kill and overpowered Shotgun????
Titanfall introduces a multi level combat system and vertical movement to create something fresh in the FPS genre ??????????
Multi level was introduced in Duke Nukem 3d (1996)
Vertical Movement was introduced in Quake 2 (1997)
Seriuosly, EA go home!
This just looks too mental for me but it's ideally suited to people on speed and those who drink copious amounts of Dr Pepper.
