Titanfall Review Round-up: Is it worthy of all the hype?


This is it! Titanfall is almost upon us. To date, Respawn Entertainment's mech-shooter has been hailed as one of the most anticipated games of 2014, but is it living up to the hype? While we're holding off our review until the servers officially go live (you know, EA...), some sites have already posted their impressions and scores. So is Titanfall the next Call of Duty killer?

Polygon - 9/10

"Titanfall may not mark the same kind of sea change that Modern Warfare started but the pieces are all there in a game that delivers on its potential as the next big thing."

Gamespot - 9/10

"Titanfall is a leap forward for shooters, a game that combines the vibrant and new with the tried and true to create something special."

Joystiq - 4.5/5

"Titanfall isn't tuned to perfection for everyone yet, but it starts as a smart, swift and startling movement in well-traveled space."

Videogamer - 8/10

"...for all its strengths, its reliance on tried and true modes and rigid maps stops Titanfall achieving its full potential."

Eurogamer - Review in Progress

"Quite simply, if you feel like you're in danger of falling out of love with multiplayer shooters, Titanfall is the game to win you back."

Xbox Achievements - 9/10

"Other than a few hiccups and oversights, Titanfall is the shooter that so many gamers have been waiting for."

So far it seems like Titanfall is living up to the hype. Tomorrow, March 11, you'll be able to find out for yourself. Stay tuned for our full review once the servers go live.
