This game really came out of nowhere.

I only played part of a round, but it was pretty damn solid. I'll probably sink a little time, but F2P isn't usually my jam.

I'm honestly not really into F2P or Battle Royale games but, Apex is a pretty solid game.

9/10 for shooter mechanics

My favorite BR game so far, but I really hope they add Titans later on somehow

Can you please elaborate a little? Some of my friends are trying to convince me to get it, but I don't really want another battle royale game installed on my PC.

And a 9.25 from Game Informer. I really didn't expect this to be THAT good.

How exactly is it not? Going down the Battle Royal mode is the go-to easy money road and it bears little resemblance to the original IP.

Being good or bad is completely irrelevant.

It's like 12 gbs. Even if you don't like it, it's really not that much data.

Played a round. Solid gameplay but I would still prefer Titanfall 3... but knowing EA, it wont happen anytime soon

@DragonfireXZ95: I'm more referring to fatigue I am experiencing with the genre. Its sort of a simple repetetive mode compared to other more strategic fps modes if you catch my drift. Does apex solve the common battle royale issues? The events that happen too often like you/your opponent got the bad rng weapon while your opponent/you got the gun they needed right after spawn/drop?

Nope, it's still heavily RNG based with loot.

I'm pretty sure there are still places on this planet where downloading 12gb will take months.

But what's the point in playing an online shooter there anyway?

Going to download it on my day off, but waiting for the Battlefield V BR. More anxious for that.

Its seems like anyone could make a free BR game nowadays and it will instantly get 10 million downloads. Even just a hobo who lives in a cardboard box and next day he becomes a millionaire.

Looks like Apex is about to steal Fortnite's thunder... Which is fitting, since Fortnite stole PUBG's thunder. And now Fortnite is about to get a taste of its own medicine.

I installed it and only played through the training. Then i went back to the Fallout 4. I don't know why that game is so addicting.

Played it this weekend.

Pretty funny how they made Titanfall popular by stripping it of its' Titans, wallrunning and game modes in favor of simpler gameplay with just a BR mode. They basically took away things from their previous game and got millions of players, LMFAO. And a 9/10 at that by IdiotSpot, jesus fucking christ.

That said, it was pretty fun for a while. Much simpler and worse than Titanfall 2 though. I might play it a couple more times if my friends are playing, until I get seriously bored. How other people don't get bored with these fucking BR games faster than they are is beyond my understanding.

The story of Titanfall is similar to household arena shooter titles like Quake and UT.

New game gets released, everybody hypes its cool movement tech and high skill ceiling. Every streamer jumps on it.

A week later it's crickets and tumbleweed.

Because despite most gamers claiming they want high skill ceiling games, getting destroyed by people at the height of said ceiling makes them quit the game in a heartbeat, and never come back.

You never actually played the game, yet you don't understand why it's addicting? The training takes like 2 minutes... How many games do you only give 2 minutes before dismissing?

The game is meh to me. Played a couple rounds and it plays pretty well but you have to play in a squad. This is a game you'll have fun with your friends right now and hopefully it does well enough for them to add legs to it.

Finally the battle royale game for me.

No shitty TPS because those games suck.

The excellent Titanfall shooting mechanics that should of killed CoD, but failed because scrubs couldn't adapt.

played few minutes and uninstalled it. i cant see any fun in it. yes its gunplay is nice but battle royale is most boring genre that invent this gen. there is no wall running mechanics that make titanfall a titanfall.

there is no fun in you land in big map and find and loot ammo and roam around here and there and if you are killed you have to wait for like hour.

What an absolute phenomenon! Discovered that it's not for me, but glad almost everyone else is enjoying it. :)

It's kind of a high risk to a site's scoring reputation, though, don't you think, reviewing F2P games, where every f^(%£r with a gaming system can assess it for themselves without risk to their wallets (no $60 confirmation bias to feed). I wouldn't even know where to begin, scoring a free game...

Sorry mods, if this counts as a necro - I didn't want to create a new thread just for this one comment.
