    So I got the 48 hour trial on origin, and figured I would try it out. First off, the game is huge. 30+gb for a game no actual content. Like it or not its just a dolled up arena shooter. The load times are totally ridiculous and the screen rate are totally inconsistent. I'm running dual r9 270x's, I7 3770k, and 16gb ram, but even on medium settings my framerate drops down to 1fps at random. Combine that with the fact that match making is anything but that. First round I was put against several lvl40+ people. I was the lowest level by at least 15 levels. regardless of inherent skill, just the map awareness and game dynamics knowledge made it impossible to be effective. This was by far one of the worst first time experiences in a game ever. I usually get roped into buying stuff with free trials, but this won't be one.

    I've always liked the direction of the developers ( Jason West and Vince Zampella ) had brought, back when they were doing their CoD franchise. However, as a PC gamer, I'm extremely disappointed in this game. CoD was a PC game when it was first introduced. The direction was then to take the PC versions of these games and dumb down the graphics and game-play for Consoles. With Titanfall, my PC game feels like I'm playing an xBox version; barely using the power of my PC at all. The graphics are actually sub-par on the PC with all my settings maxed out; especially if I compare them to true PC games like Battlefield 3 and 4. Seeing settings in this game that are geared for console users is a bit of a give-away that they created one version that could run on all systems and deployed it. I don't feel like any extra effort went into the PC version at all. This is going to be a problem. Game developers spend too much time now trying to make console versions, thinking that PC gamers are in decline, but the reality is quite the opposite. PC gamers are no longer playing games like this BECAUSE of development actions being taken like they did on this game. If you want a good review and want to bring back the PC crowd in droves that made Vince and Jason rich, make a PC game first, then dumb-down the graphics and game-play for consoles. Don't make a console game, then re-compile it as a PC version using the same graphics and gameplay... we definitely notice the difference. The other issue I take up with is no story mode. I know they argued that they didn't want to spend money and time developing a single player story because they feel it's a waste, but here's the other side to that argument. Being a MP only game, what happens in a year or maybe two when people stop playing and move on to other games? Especially without there being dedicated servers to play on against bots, eventually this game will die out. I can't even play some of the CoD games anymore because the lobbies are always empty. At least with a single player version, while I may be able to beat it in several hours, I can at least always go back and play it again later (which I do with other games). Come on Jason and Vince. You got a fresh start, let's not start cutting corners.

    This game is limited in many ways. First, there is no real mission like in Call of Duty. It is just a bunch of rehashed Mech Warriors battling it out. Two; the Ai is problematic. Teams that I was playing on got kicked out of the match right in the middle and send to the next match. Sometimes the game will kick you out altogether and send you to your desktop with no error code. Sometimes the controls just quit working for 2 to 3 seconds at a time in the match. Also, there are problems with scoring where you are the only one shooting at a Titan and you get the kill but it does not record on the menu. Also, why do we have to run 64 bit windows to run this game when it installs to the x86 (32 bit folder) on the hard drive? Is Respawn just trying kiss up to Microsoft who wants everyone on 64 OS's? Also I have quit playing the game because of the obnoxious behavior of some players who have headsets and mics and swear throughout the game because they are losing a match. Because they are using audio instead of text, you can not tell who they are to report them. In some cases children were playing the game and causing the team to lose because they were new to the game and adults were cussing them out over the headset and in one case a young boy come on and told the adults to quit cussing at him. If this continues and EA and Respawn fail to deal with it, it will end the game. This wouldn't be the first online game to fail because the Publisher and Developer refused to police the online gamers. Overall the graphics and sound are good, but that is only part of the game, the rest of it is substandard really. How many times can you replay the same matches where everyone just runs off on their own? Respawn has new maps, but you have to buy them. I wish they had made a single player aspect to this game. Why does it have to be online only and through MS Cloud servers to boot? Once again, is Respawn kissing up to M$?

    This game is shit. I got a brand new PC $800 for this game, only for it to be the worst game I have ever played in my entire life. Don't waste your money. You can waste a whole clip in a Pilot, for it to turn around and one shot you. The Titans aren't clunky, but die extremely fast. This whole article is a lie. I just hope I can still get a refund.

    still funny that people still buy EA games. Its like you guys are the girl who keeps going back to the abusive boyfriend.
  • malik-sarsak - March 11, 2014 7:49 p.m.

    EA only published it, respawn developed it
  • Vonter - March 13, 2014 11:13 a.m.

    EA (the publisher) calls the shot of what the game has or not. Respawn develops it but in the end the scope or ambition of the project is managed by the publisher. At least that how it looks taking other properties like Mass Effect and Dead Space as examples.
  • Divine Paladin - April 12, 2014 3:27 p.m.

    I believe this started as part of the Partners Program, where the developer literally has full control over the development. Or, had, since after Fuse the Partners Program went under. Still.
  • zdruck07 - April 14, 2014 7:08 a.m.

    i think you're right, at least that's what I always heard. Respawn had full control developing and EA was solely the publisher. But people need to get their anti-EA circlejerk going if their name is anywhere near it.
  • Relzen - March 16, 2014 12:47 a.m.

    EA doesn't have a good reputation but the awful people who constantly bitch about the company on comment sections and forums make me want to hurl huge wads of cash at them. Also learn the difference between developer and publisher.
  • lancevance821 - March 16, 2014 9:03 p.m.

    Trust me I know the difference. Enjoy your defense of a company that will DLC you to death. And Time cramp developers so the games are glitchy as hell. Plus they have the most crap servers I've ever played on. (battlefield 3 was the last one I had the misfortune of playing)
  • Silo - March 11, 2014 8:51 a.m.

    Can`t wait to play Titanfall 2 on my PS4
  • TanookiMan - March 11, 2014 6:52 a.m.

    I guess I'll keep waiting for the "killer app" that bumps me into the next generation. (Sorry Wii U, I love you, but you're no longer next gen)
  • Vonter - March 13, 2014 11:18 a.m.

    Still it could have good games. But yeah it has been a slow start. I wonder who'll be the first one to truly introduce a new gameplay idea.

    The whole verticality and range of areas you can be in is why I love Uncharted multiplayer so much. This just has parkour instead of dynamic climbing. I'm also kind of disappointed that the monsters turned out to be nothing of interest, because those were actually the most exciting thing for me. It seems the real reason they left out talking about them is because they're completely ignorable. It's like a hybrid of CoD and Battlefield, if all the vehicles were mechs, and there was no destructible environments. Verticality. It's not the first time it's been done well in multiplayer.

    Looks like Titanfall is a better than average shooter that tries some new things and has a noob friendly entry level. Thats about what i expected. The team that made it is known to be competent. I was a bit worried that EA and Microsoft would find a way to screw things up.....and they still may, but it sounds like those of you who are shelling out the ducats will be satisfied. The murmurs of it being a new paradigm for FPS and a CoD killer, always seemed silly to me. Im not even sure if it will have staying power, but it obviously gives Xbone owners a reason to smile.

    Wow, didn't expect this article to be bumped up into a review. Now people are responding to the doubtful comments I posted before I had tried the beta. At least it's a great review :D
