How can you give the first game in what's obviously going to be a growing franchise down the road a 10 /10? What are you going to give the sequel(s) if they do what most sequels do and blow the original away in every way. I'm all about being a fanboy of a console bro, but sometimes you gotta be honest. Very few games are perfect, and the ones that are don't come out within the first 6 months of a console generation. Just remember that XB1 will be getting far better games than the original Titanfall, down the road.


Sequels? Are you crazy? TF is perfect, it's final, it can't have a sequel because it can't be topped!!

 Dammit... You're right... How could I have been so NAIVE!! I must go out and purcahse an XBox One at ONCE!!!... After I can get it used for cheap of course... Heheh ;)




More craziness... How could you find an used one if nobody will sell it because they will be playing TF on it?

Standards change. What deserves a 10/10 now can be stopped in 2-3 years but still get a lower score.

My scores are based soley on fun. Nothing else. Thats the reason we play videogames.

This is a smart way of reviewing games. I did my review and I had a good laugh at people saying I should subtract points from my 9/10 because of graphics or lack of SP campaign. Did either of those affect my enjoyment? No? Then why would I care?

I agree about the balance part. It is so perfect in Titanfall. It's funny how after 3 days everyone playing CoD or Battlefield will know what the "best weapon" or "most OP weapon" is. In Titanfall such a thing does not exist. And the effort put in to make Titan vs Pilot combat so fair, hats off to Respawn.



Great review. Very professional. I appreciated the full honesty of it. A+++ article by Selnor!



This game went from being pretty good to getting better and better the more I play it. Titanfall is my life, now. There's some things that can be improved but I haven't felt this way playing an FPS's multiplayer since I played CoD4.

I know everyone has their own opinion but theres no way this game could possibly deserve a flawless score.

Dude shhh, game of our civilization, selnor said it.

After playing quite a lot, I still am in awe when I see these guys almost never touching the ground even in closed areas... how in the f.. world?! And still manage to put a bullet in your head, how? :'(



I haven't been here long, but I can't take anything Selnor says seriously at all. There have been massive contradictions and just plain poor thinking in much of what I've read from him.

Guess I can't make this statement without proving it.

Well, here he says that he only gives a score based on fun. But I also just read his Ryse review and the "best console graphics ever" certainly influenced his score there. It's just very sad that he lives in this little cloud up in la-la land and thinks people take him seriously. Oh well.

Nice review Selnor. It reads a lot better, grammatically, than some of the 'professional' reviews I have seen. Agree with the score too. It's a game you need to play to appreciate, so I can understand why some people who haven't played it are questioning your rating.

I've played over 40 hours and 99.5% of that has been on attrition. Still have all the other modes to try out and the 2 campaigns to play but having too much fun on attrition. Longevity is not a problem for this game.

Some games are story driven. Visuals help these types of games tell stories. Why does praising visuals in a cinematc game mean that doesnt add to the fun of the game.
