Anyone actually buying this? I was lukewarm on the beta, but reviews seem to rave about the game. Debating this or Civ6.

Apparently this is the best single player game in a generation, based on some reviews and news I've seen.

Bought it. Like it. Single player campaign is one of the best I've played in a long while and that's in light of the fact I recently played Gears of War 4 which I also liked a lot. I went from never wanting Titanfall to have a single player to considering it an expectation going forward. It's even got a Modern Warfare inspired training course that people compete for times on that it really fun.

As for the multiplayer, I was never as disturbed by some of the changes as other people were. I've been enjoying that too.

Word. Bought it on Xbone yesterday, not bad thus far. Strange that their isn't any stat tracking for the MP.

Finished the campaign today, probably my favorite FPS campaign since CoD 4 (right alongside DOOM). It's a well-done bread and butter shooter story until about halfway through, then your guy finds a special thing and they shove you ferociously onto the crazy train. The last half of the single player I finished in one marathon session because I had a big stupid grin on my face at the amazingly ridiculous set pieces, platforming puzzles, and firefights. And the Titan you become buddies with, and whose story arc goes exactly how you expect it to go, gave me some feelgood "The Iron Giant" vibes the moment he started talking. The story also does a really great job of slowly introducing all the Titan loadouts you'll see in multiplayer so you get plenty of practice with each one. Speaking of, I never thought I'd fall for another twitch shooter again but Titanfall 2 just feels so damn good to play, on foot (or walls) or in a Titan. It's obvious this is made by the guys behind the best Call of Duty games.

 

The sad thing is, the game isn't selling that well because of the hilariously dumb decision by EA to put it out right after Battlefield 1 and the new CoD. This is the most fun I've had playing a shooter in almost a decade (which, after Overwatch and then DOOM, is the 3rd time I've said that this year) and I'm afraid Titanfall 2 isn't going to get the attention it deserves by the masses. Fingers crossed the community doesn't peter out too quickly.

 

Buy this game you scrubs, and do it on PC so we can play together!

No tengo PC, but am probably going to take the plunge on PS4 since multiple people here seem to be liking the campaign. That multiplayer beta was pretty whack, though, not going to lie. I'll just stick with Destiny for my MP kicks.

What was up with the tech test? I never got the chance to play it. I've heard from a few people that it wasn't very good, and also heard from people who bought it that Respawn made a ton of changes based on outcry about it.

Bad maps (not great in the full game either), the Titan spawns were on a timer that you couldn't have any influence over, TTK, differences from Titanfall 1 (no shield for titans, etc.).

Good writeup. Any idea how long the campaign took you to beat? May try and hit the Redbox over a slow weekend and get through the campaign. Battlefield 1 is taking up the multiplayer time at the moment.

Campaign probably took me about 5 hours playing on the game's second-highest difficulty setting. You can get through it in a few sittings.

I need to clarify that you will be playing with me, Nightshade, and Deftech as the cost of getting a free game.

One last caveat, it is a physical copy, so you have to be comfortable with JCTucker from the Internet knowing your mailing address.

Ha, I'd be down but am afraid I wouldn't be on and playing enough to justify the charitable gift. If no one claims it and you're still interested in offloading it, I'd be willing to purchase it from you.
