Yeah, it's so... Kinetic. When you're in the groove and chaining wall-runs, grappling hooks, double jumps and kills, it's exhilarating.
Then you get a Titan and it becomes, well a royal rumble. I didn't enjoy Titans in the beta. I get them now. Sometimes you end up taking on the world, and they're just not that powerful. Even a pilot or two can give you major problems if they're not stupid and have good cover.

Kicking ass in a Titan is reasonably uncommon. When it happens it is awesome. But that eject is inevitable, every bit of damage lasts, the only way to repair a Titan is using stolen batteries and they don't heal much. It's about doing as much damage as you can while it's up and running.

This sound in the game is pretty damn good, isn't it? I mean, I'm just watching a video, but even then it really draws you in.

Yeah, the sound design is really good. The weapons sound really nice, which is unusual for a sci-fi game.

I like that the Titans each have different voices, and have multiple lines for the same situation. The CO barks are good like that, multiple lines for double kills etc. And as you level up, you get to change the CO, so if you find Briggs annoying, you can change to the Seeth Efrican guy.

I find that doing lots of the parkour is painting a target on your back. It's awesome, and you can get around the map super fast, but it's also pretty easy to take someone wallrunning out.

Well, I've clocked up 4 days on the multiplayer. As in 98 ish hours playtime. So I've certainly got my money's worth

It reminds me of COD:MW1 (the one I liked most in multiplayer, before they overcomplicated it with loadout points buy systems and 18 trillion challenges) simple on the back-end, all action.

I've had this for a while as it part of a bundle deal with my PS4. However, due to having very limited time for playing games I only got around to trying it yesterday.

It's a bit good, has a lovely feel to the mechanics, has a non patronising tutorial baked in. The weapons feel suitably robust and do serious damage. I've not tried the MP as I don't have PS subscription or whatever it's called but I'm surprised you lot aren't all over this like a bad suit.

Released at wrong time, people won't risk it, and choose CoD instead. Even though the latest CoD is worse in every way.

If it released last week, people would be all over it.

I played it last night and I was wondering why I stopped playing Titanfall 2 when I could be playing more Titanfall 2. I ended up jumping 7 levels and it was bloody marv. It's gotta be my favourite MP at the moment.

I unlocked the softball which fires sticky grenades from a grenade launcher which was an absolute blast to play with. Fortunately they don't have a big blast radius (or at all) so you pretty much have to squish one on a players fat head. When I lost a match of pilot v pilot and the losing team had to escape back to the ship I was loitering around a hiding place until the other team came chasing us down and squibbed a bunch of them with this thing before they knew what was happening. Glorious.

So around 12 mins or so I'm wrecking shit in my phat up Titan but it takes major damage and is about to pop.

But I've got the martyrdom perk equipped so I run into 3 titans (2 of which had only just dropped. Poor buggers) and do a nuclear explosion nailing all 3 of them. It's glorious but you kinda had to be there.

I've added this to The List because the single player campaign got such a lot of love in all the reviews. Have any of you guys played it or did you all just fire into the multi player?

Single player is excellent. Really, really well put together. It's like someone took the meaty combat from FEAR, the mobility of Mirrors Edge and the puzzly-ness of Portal, added Big Stompy Robots and mixed it all up.

Wow, that's as compelling a recommendation of a game as I've read in a long time. Sweet!

I'm barely playing anything at all now except iRacing and phone games, but Titanfall 2 SP is excellent so far.

The only reason I've not picked this up is that I've no interest in the MP and the campaign although excellent is apparently a bit short.

I'm liking this game. I've spent a bit of time on the SP mode (which seems to be fairly engaging, although a little too platformy at times), but very little on MP. Any suggestions on what MP modes etc to play?

I've not even looked at Grim...'s vid, but I'm predicting it's the GTA guy who ejected from his plane, faceplanted the wing, then got hit by the burning wreckage on the way down.

How did I do?

I am loving this so far.

It is as smooth as Zardoz's heid and the bullets actually seem to have individual effects rather than it just adding to a meter at which point a death animation kicks in. The platforming aspects are so much more enjoyable than I thought they would be and the gunplay feels meaty and doom-like.

I've got this, Breath of the Wild, Forza Horizon 3 and Nex Machina to play at the moment and all of them are *really* good games for entirely different reasons and on three different formats. Modern gaming is great.

So I've just done the "Effect and Cause" level.

Holy shit, that's one of the cleverest things I have seen in a videogame in years and years and years.

The audio logs were amazing!

The "Ultimate Edition" of this is $10 on PSN USA right now, so I bought it. Dunno what you get with the Ultimate Edition, but I was only really interested in the single player anyway, and I am guessing it is multiplayer stuff.
