Don't get me wrong, I can't stand the large majority of the wannabe, think they work for CNN, social issue pushing "journalist" on this site but I think your accusation it absolutely ridiculous.

Also the average out of 26 reviews is 87% so yeah 90 is about the average.

Or maybe not everyone is as pessimistic with games as most posters on this forum (especially with EA games).

Like it or not Titanfall is fun and tries a few new things.

Oddly enough, this PC forum put Thief's 6/10 review on a pedestal, regardless of the amount of advertising that game got.

They are meant to keep the action going and the blood pumping, not give you a challenge to kill (also to rank up points for a Titan). It's a nice feature since not everyone is the best player so for those that aren't that good, they still feel like they are helping in the war.

1) You are not. get over yourself.

2) Again, you cant seem to grasp the concept that they are not player replacements and therefore think they take away from the skill.

tower defense? what crap am I reading here...

It's got nothing to do with PRO FPS gamer or whatever, the bots are just there to keep the action going (look at the review I posted and it explains it there).

I believe the games you mentioned had bots to play with as well?

No, there're no bots to play there as well, and if you do want CS Source or GO bots to compare with, there's no real challenge to even start comparing. (bots on hardest difficulty on CS will snipe you ASAP and will test your instincts real good)

I don't see any excuse for BOTS are there to keep the action going, have you ever played Battlefield with 64 players? ever tried Planetside 2?

Both BF4 and Planetside 2 are different games. They have huge maps to accommodate 64 players + lots of different vehicles to use.

Titanfall has small to medium sized maps (aka COD style). The bots are there to rank up quick points for Titans, and to keep the action (war) going in less populated areas.

Now you will say something like "why didn't they just have 12v12 players"... well, cause it already gets too busy with 4 or 5 Titans running around, 24 Titans would just be a clusterf***.

If you don't understand why the bots are there or want to compare it to something else, that's fine... but if you played the game you would realize why they are there.

again, wanting these soldiers to be challenging takes away from the player vs player aspect. you cant compare to BF4 BECAUSE I SAY IT AGAIN THEY ARE NOT PLAYER REPLACEMENTS. get it into your head already.

ever played a MoBA? its more like that.... although not entirely.

and guess what "pro fps player" ... MOBA's are far more competitive... and are riddled with bots.

Stop enjoying things!

I can understand why people don't like it, but the way people are going way out of their way to bash it is just getting sad.

Nowadays if a game gets a good score, it's always assumed it was paid off. Why even look at the reviews if you truly think they're that corrupt?

Ignore KHAnime... hes just butthurt because his precious DayZ dev did what everyone was thinking and decided the project was trash and it reflects in overall "alpha reviews" of the game.... so hes finding any excuse.

Don't teach me about MOBA games because I've played plenty times of LoL with my team and we dived into enemies bases and ignoring all towers and minions like they've never existed.

Don't get me wrong, I can't stand the large majority of the wannabe, think they work for CNN, social issue pushing "journalist" on this site but I think your accusation it absolutely ridiculous.

It's not as ridiculous as you might think. This site is run on advertising. It pays for everything. Gee whiz - I wonder if advertisers like to pay more money to sites that rate their games higher on average?... This is a business. And more than that - it's a wealthy industry. It's about making money. You think this site is perpetuated on passion? No, these are jobs and this is a business. They don't take games and reviewing credibility as seriously as we do - they're just fucking videogames. You think people really give that much of a shit when it involves their very well being? It depends entirely on the site, but it's safe to assume that some sites care less about integrity than others.

Not really all that far fetched if you put any thought into it. Having said that, I'm being tongue in cheek and not actually accusing this review of being paid. I just don't take any believe there is any credibility in any of the reviews made on this site since the last 5 years or so.

And honestly, I'm sure this game is great for the crowd it appeals to, but as said I don't take reviews too seriously. Maybe the ones that don't have numbers or scores attached to them I take a little more seriously. It's not a conspiracy. Reviewers aren't greased individually, but it's done on much higher level (management) - which is what caused Jeff to get fired. it's just how the industry works, journalism doesn't pay for itself does it?

after playing good scifi shooters like UT2K4, BF2142 and Crysis Powerstruggle (technically busted, but awesome concept) aeons ago, this game simply seems shallow as hell. way too CoD-esque. looks better than just plain CoD, to be honest, but still... not my cup of tea.

Really? you think that I actually have to play to realize it? "keep the action going", this is how I saw a live stream: shoots one bot - kills it, none of the group of bots have even concidered looking at the guy that shoots, OK - second bot was the same and so the third one... do I really have to keep going with this? because I don't see how it supposed to keep the "ACTION" going...

You wanna see a good game that keeps the action going? One Finger Death Punch on Steam, all you do is click the right and left mouse buttons and you don't even control moving the character but still there's a lot of action going there.

Well I ask because I too thought bots was probably a bad idea, until I actually played the beta and realized that they are just there for extra points and to bring across the feel of a big war going on.

Again, for like the 5th time, you have described the bots as dumb as a complaint. Both @MBirdy88 and I have explained that they are meant to be dumb for specific reasons. They even capture points for you in Domination so you can move onto the next section.

Oh so you watched some video footage. was the person stealthed? if so they can't see you to react... and if you kill from behind they do turn around. so yea.... cherry picking little bits of footage, against someone how has played 100+ matches now? really?

You are the heroes... those are just mindless troops fodder, just like in MOBAs. again, stop trying to make out that they need to be difficult.... that would ruin the pace of the game... and would make bots... actually annoying.

Journalistic integrity is non existent almost in the games industry. All of these so called journalism sites/magazines hype games for companies on a daily bases. No self respecting journalist would hype a product he is supposed to be looking objectively at as a journalist. Modern journalism is a joke and video game journalism is the biggest joke of them all.
