3.0 out of 5 stars Titans will soon fall down the charts!, 26 Mar 2014

Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Titanfall (Xbox One) (Video Game)
After playing this game for a few days it was suddenly made clear that it was the same repetitive gameplay over and over again. After seeing all the hype that lead to this game which I can compare with the Call of Duty series, it was probably one of the biggest disappointments in a game I have ever bought.

Each game lasts about 10 minutes if your lucky, all the maps look quite similar or there are not enough unique maps to give you the wow factor to make you want to play a certain map again. The only campaign is an online one which is only a campaign by name as it is just capturing points against other players (so basically a normal online match). It is just literally the same thing over and over again, and I can't believe they charge you full game retail price for it as it is more like an arcade title.

Overall it is an alright game at first but it's true colors only show once you have played a few matches on it and you start to tell it's just the same thing over and over again. In my advice, you should stick to Battlefield or COD.

120 odd hours so far and I've yet to experience any repetitive gameplay
If you're finding the game repetitive then my guess would be you're using the exact same play style in every match.. Try switching things up and setting challenges for yourself like double jumping out of a wall run and landing straight into an execution on another player. There's so many creative ways to kill people and capture flags

I find it amusing though that you're saying Titanfall is repetitive yet people should stick with Battlefield or Call of Duty... Games that haven't changed or brought anything new to the FPS genre in years.

Also a campaign is a continuing storyline and/or adventure. So Titanfall does have a campaign as those 9 missions have a story behind them that progresses and frankly it's still better than the campaigns in Call of Duty & Battlefield which just involve you killing hundreds and thousands of poorly designed bots over and over again which the bad guy(s) that apparently can't be killed till the very end of several games later

First of all thank you for responding to my comment out the many people who say on here the game is repetitive. The reason I say stick to BF or COD is because they offer a lot more where as titanfall don't even seem like a finished game. And yes I did try switching classes but each game was just the same thing over and over. And how you can say the apparent campaign is anywhere near decent is beyond me. It's possibly the worst excuse of a campaign I've played on any game. Even some of my friends which were fan boys of titanfall are starting to get bored of it already. Just look at the community score on metacritic and that sums up how much of a disappointment this game is. Perhaps I wouldn't be so harsh if the game was cheaper and didn't have so much hype around it but EA decide they want more money for another game that needs finishing.

At end of the day Titanfall was good at first but out the dozens I know who bought it, none of them even play it anymore. That ha got to mean something. Look at all the other comments and they all say the same bad things about it. Might be worth getting when it's 20-25 maybe but not 40 odd.

Metacritic community score is not a reliable barometer any more sadly, the game had a community score of about 5/100 before it was released due to fanboys deciding to bash anything Xbox 1 related (and yes the same thing happens against PS4 products).

I honestly don't care what scores the game gets from sites such as Metacritic as at the end of the day the only thing that matters is whether I myself enjoy the game or not. As for every match being the same thing every time that's exactly how I feel with Call of Duty and Battlefield now.. I could also sit here for hours listing games that have had worse campaigns

This game is no where near being a disappointment. It's a fresh change to the FPS Genre and it showed how good Microsoft's Azure Cloud is resulting in quite a lot of developers and publishers wanting to use it hopefully leading to some more amazing MP games down the line.. Also EA? It'd be hard for EA to make money from this as they don't own Titanfall nor Respawn Entertainment. Respawn own 100% of Titanfall and aren't letting EA have any say but you're right the game isn't finished just like pretty much all games these days aren't finished. They wouldn't need patches all the time or have any DLC planned otherwise

I do agree with some of your points there to be honest. But seriously, titanfall's campaign is not a campaign. If you know worse ones then they must be trash. And the main reason I am annoyed with this game is because it's supposed to be the next best thing but it's hardly got any content and they will probably want you to spend loads of money on DLC just to get the whole game experience. Ok when I said about COD and Battlefield, to be honest I don't like COD and Battlefield is ok. Like you said, it's the same old with fps games lately. The reason I said them is because most people who like fps games will most likely have them already and titanfall is not worth spending another 40 on. It's an ok game hence why I gave it 3 stars, but it's nothing that special, would of been better if they delayed it and made it a proper game but instead it feels like a rushed game as usual with the modern game world. I'm just glad I sold the game and managed to get all my money back. I don't want to be caught up in no argument about games because I've grew out of that. If you like the game then fair enough but I thought it was average hence the rating, and I am entitled to my opinion. This is my final comment.
