It’s a game about new ideas, and they all feel so natural from the moment you start playing. …
But I suspect the key to Titanfall’s longevity will be the way you always have more options than you can hope to explore in the same match, and the way the systems clash to create memorable and unpredictable spectacle. I’m used to playing FPS games where everyone does the same thing spawn after spawn, but in Titanfall I never know where I’m going to go. If I can’t make it up that street, I might go over it, or spawn in my titan, or play that burn card to change my rules for this round, or just go in a totally different direction.
Ultimately, we don’t care what other people say because we have already played it for ourselves. Still, while we wait for the games to arrive (our digital versions should be downloadable by 5 pm local time Tuesday) it is fun to blow the horns, wave our t-shirts above our heads, and exchange hi-fives and silly grins because we know our new game is a winner!
