We all know that Battlefield 1 and Call Of Duty: Infinite Warfare are already on the shelves; and with that, you’ll probably won’t notice Titanfall 2. It’s kind of a shame that a solid fast-paced first-person shooter developed by the great minds behind Call Of Duty 4: Modern Warfare didn’t have their futuristic-pilot plus mech shooter recognized.
In my review of Titanfall 2, I mentioned: “Titanfall 2 is the best of the bunch — the underdog that deserves the spotlight. Respawn has delivered another brilliant game with an engaging story, outstanding musical score, and intense multiplayer action.” This is true for my experience with the game. It’s a lot better and balanced than the first Titanfall. You can read my full review here.
Here are the Top 5 Reasons why you should consider buying Titanfall 2.
Goodbye paid DLC content, maps, microtransaction, Season Pass!
Yes, as what was announced by Respawn Entertainment, they have went back to the time of old-school gaming era where you don’t have to pay for additional content. You get to have an entirely fully-supported title without spending another cent post-launch.
Lag Is Seamless
This is true. I live in Asia, and went over to play in the Oregon Datacenter. And what do you know? It’s quite better and smooth, and that I didn’t experience any delays at all even if I’m from a Southeast Asian country. Since Multiplayer is the core and that the game is also fast-paced, then we need to consider the latency as it can greatly affect our gameplay experience.
Versatile, Fluid, Fast and Balanced Gameplay
Both the Single-player and Multiplayer shares the same thing in gameplay: adaptable, fast, enjoyable, and innovative. You will never get full of wall-running and sliding while killing your targets. Pilots are not overwhelmed with Titans now because the anti-Titan weapons pack a lot of damage. And better yet, those Titans dropping in from the sky are fun to watch.
The changes made with the Titan’s life-system is now balanced than before. There are no regenerative shields, and you’ll also be able to replenish your Titan’s life with an energy battery that you can steal from an enemy Titan.
Burn Cards are now replaced with Boosts! It’s far better this time as you don’t have to get overpowered against other players with powerful Burn Cards. Boosts are time-bound and can be quickly acquired if you can get more kills.
The campaign is engaging and that the humor of your buddy BT is as classic as ever! The relationship of a Titan and its pilot reminded me with Shadow of the Colossus. Stephen Barton’s musical score adds the drama and the feels of the story. Listen to BT-7274 Track:
With the people behind the original Infinity Ward – Vince Zampella and ex-Infinity Ward employees – the story, soundtrack, and gameplay in the mix is solid as it can be. It’s a bit of a shame that it’s only about 5 hours of gameplay for single-player, but it’s something that is worth playing. I guarantee you that.
Multiplayer At Its Finest!
It’s no doubt Respawn Entertainment has done it again and has improved Titanfall’s multiplayer balance. Each maps feel more equal for Titans and Pilots to battle, with the additional game mode called “Bounty Mode”, players race to the $5000 mark they get from killing drop pods with enemy A.I grunts and Titans.
With additional customization added in the game, a great progression system, Bounty Mode, and lots of loadout options, your multiplayer experience will no doubt be the best one in Titanfall 2.
Titanfall 2 is now available on PS4, Xbox One, and digitally on PC.
