Considering BF4 was a complete let down and waste of money I must concur....Origin needs to be bought and dismantled.
Anyway saw the link and found the beta, seems all is in order. As expected from the original CoD2 design team(the best of all the CoD games; and that's saying a lot since I loath CoD with a F#$%^#$ passion) it's basic's were well covered the the gameplay flowed seamlessly from scene to scene.
The story line is very interesting, and I could see a sequel easily being made for the Campaign. If Halo and EVE Online had a baby this would be it. The story line can get very in-depth at times, and at others back out to help the player understand the larger picture. The maps though seemed a bit recycled to me......perhaps that's just the FPS genre; not sure.
The "Anti-Grav Warfare" style of gameplay, as my friend so deemed it, certainly was an interesting twist. I have not seen such tactics since Battlefield 2142, and on more than one occasion I was knifed from behind when some idiot came flying in the window via jetpack. After a short time you will adapt to this, and I managed to get the hang of run and gun though trying to kill in mid-air was as hard here as it is in Halo.
I managed to get a kill streak and call down a Titan; which caused me to squeal in sheer delight. However I was disappointed at how clumsy the Titan's are, and they seem less made for Combat roles and more Gun Platforms to back up the smaller guys. I went 1v1 with another Titan and was really annoyed how he constantly threw his shield up and tossed incoming ammo back at me. After going back and forth for a few minutes....and streets.....I managed to gun the bastard down only to have him land on top of me and jack the Titan as easily as stealing cookies from the cookie jar. Honestly....this PO'ed me instantly; causing me to troll the idiot for the remainder of the game.
In short ladies Titan Fall is an interesting, and fresh take on the FPS genre but still may need to be hashed out a bit if a sequel is to be made. Infantry combat is outstanding, Titans are a bit of a let down. Though with proper coordination, and firepower, your team can have some very intense BF2 like battles.
