Forums - Gaming Discussion - Titanfall Overhyped???

Most big games are overhyped.

I think it'll be a solid FPS that will be fun to play online, but not some masterpiece like it seems to be hyped up as.

To summarise:

Do you like the game
Yes - not over hyped
No - over hyped

Do you dislike game
Yes - over hyped
No - is it on my system?
Yes - not over hyped
No - over hyped

And that my friends, is that.

In terms of review scores, no I think the hype is probably about right. In terms of likely sales on Xb one and its ability to massively increase sales of Xb one, yes I think it's overhyped.

I thinkyou are pot on here. MS have weakened the power of the game considerably (as a console seller for X1) by allowing it on the x360 as well as pc. A cheaper move no doubt but a stupid one i suspect.

The game defenitely looks good but not enough to make me spend $500+ to play the game. I rather spend it on the cheaper one (Xbox 360).

too early to judge

Pocky Lover Boy! 

EA + former Infinity Ward employees + gimmicks + advertisement = guaranteed overhype!

But it still may be a great game.

I don't think its over hyped, I think what people dont realize is that it is the next COD and that eventually it will become multi plat on its next iteration, unless ms trows a ton of money at respawn to keep it exclusive

The fact that it's a respawn game and not some capcom outsourced TPS could be a key factor to explain the hype, but anyway titanfall looks like a lot of fun, only drawback for me is the lack of a campaign, but for people that like online multiplayer the game looks great.

Titanfall has a campaign.  Yes, your campaign is an online multiplayer experience, but there is still a campaign.  It was even shown in the second Titanfall trailer.

Perhaps a little overhyped but that comes as a bonus when hands-on impressions have been so good. Everyone who tried it is praising it. That must mean something.

It's a 95% Meta incoming and will be absolutely huge. Between all three versions it should reach 10 million in 2014 (and with the sequel likely being on PS4 it will grow to the extent of going head to head with COD in popularity).

Also the timing of release couldn't be more perfect by releasing so close after the disappointments with Call of Duty Ghosts, Battelfield 4 and Halo on a decline.
