This game will be a some kind of a blockbuster when it comes out. It will be fun for a while, but it will not be revolutionary and it will not have the longevity.
The criticisms of the game so far are as follows (the negativity comes from here if you are wondering):
- the gameplay is repetitive and it gets boring quickly
- the game price is too high for such a small amount of content
- general stability and performance issues
- the game requires a pretty high end PC to run smoothly
- this game is both for consoles and PC
- you will have to buy DLCs to get access to additional hunters and monsters
- a lot of hype around this game generated by marketing
Let me quote a Wikipedia article on Titanfall - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Titanfall
Reviewers thought Titanfall was a successful evolution of the genre, with GameSpot ’ s Chris Watters calling it “a great leap forward for shooters” and EGM ’ s Chris Holzworth declaring the game “unquestionably worthy of all the praises sung about it”, but Eurogamer ’ s Whitehead concluded that the game’s “more of a step forward … than a leap”. Polygon ’ s Arthur Gies said Titanfall was not the “kind sea change Modern Warfare started”. Peter Bright of Ars Technica wrote that the game’s multiplayer was “not groundbreaking” and did not surpass Call of Duty ’ s, and Edge decided that Titanfall “might not be Xbox One’s killer app”. Reflecting on a lack of sales data a month after release, Forbes ’ s Paul Tassi wrote that the “buzz” surrounding Titanfall ’ s release “seemed to fade abnormally quickly” and that the game hasn’t “capitalized on the goodwill it had ahead of, and even during launch”. While EA COO Peter Moore told investors on a May 2014 call that the game had sold 925,000 retail copies in the United States during its launch month, that number came from an external NPD Group report that Titanfall was March’s top-selling game. NPD Group reported it was April’s top-selling game as well. As of May 2014, EA had not released figures on Titanfall ’ s sales, an uncommon practice that drew skepticism from journalists such as Forbes ’ s Paul Tassi.
Is this game great and fun? Yes, it sure is. Will it have the overwhelming love of people like Left4Dead, Team Fortress or DOTA? No, I don’t think so.
