If you like COD then good, it'll most likely satisfy you as it plays largely the same. The same UI, the same sort of unlock system, the crosshair has the X on it when you hit someone, the guns feel exactly the same, the melee works the same and it has the same sort of modes as well.
My problems come though is none of the modes do anything to push the genre forward, COD does more than Titanfall and that is just sad. I just find it so boring to play, the maps are small, the A.I is crap and it all feels far too enclosed for a Mech game.
You'll always end up just being a Pilot, you quickly work out that Titans are weak as, you'll just become big targets and their health isn't big enough to justify it. Also though you just don't kill people faster than as a pilot, you can kill someone running around in a second and so can you as a Titan, there is no advantage to being in the Titan. Why do Titans have to reload? I just find it dumb, a mech like that would have ammo on big chains that are fed to the gun. Pilots cane kill Titans so fast, other Titans can kill Titans... just not worth using them.
So as the Mech gameplay is such a let down, I always just end up being a Pilot, then it just ends up being COD with Double Jump and wall running. However While you do actually do that stuff, you'll spend 80% of the time running around like you do in COD, it just isn't enough to make it that different.
The maps are all bland, there are a few good ones, but they all look the same, nothing stands out and they all play the same too, there is no dynamic damage or any of that. Makes me wonder why the game doesn't perform better, it looks like a Source game, all my other Source games run at 200FPS and yet this one runs at sub 60 on my PC and sub 1080p on the Xbox One. That said the game does look a lot better on your TV, than it does when you see pictures of it on your PC, I was surprised how much better it looked running from my Xbox One that the comparisons.
The story stuff they kept going on about is a let down too, I was expecting Destiny, L4D or even assasult based objective modes like what Quake Wars or RTCW had. Instead though it is basically just a talking head in the corner of the screen, it is just nothing... why did they make a big deal out of this in development?
If COD came out later this year and added the ability to pilot vehicles, had double jump and wall running... what would be the point of Titanfall? With COD you get a Single Player, you get Coop and you get loads of MP modes. They're both the same shooter basically and the stuff that makes Titanfall different, just isn't enough.
I do not understand why it got such high reviews, I mean it is a solid 6 or 7 out of 10, it is well made, but it is mediocre, it offers nothing "meh". I have a bunch of Steam friends (we still haven't bothered with Origin friends) and not one of them liked the beta, they all said it was COD and they're done with that style of FPS. I have friends at work who only play consoles, they all say that they were done with COD years ago and now play Battlefield, or no FPS at all because they haven't bought a new console yet and find it depressing to play a last gen console.
I do not understand how it got such high reviews, I can only see this is reviewers being caught in the hype. Even Jeff from Giantbomb doesn't seem impressed, I listen to podcasts from sites that gave it a 9/10 and they're all not impressed.
