Best Video Games – Titanfall Review


Even though Titanfall was released during the first quarter of 2014, it became one of the biggest games of the year in a matter of days. As soon as it was launched, the title quickly turned into 2014’s best-selling console game and it even boosted Xbox One’s sales. However, this positive feedback is not surprising since Titanfall was developed by the same team that is behind the Call of Duty franchise.

What you need to know about Titanfall is that it is a science fiction first-person shooter developed for Windows PC, as well as for Xbox One and Xbox 360 consoles. It includes lot of combat action, yet it is different from all other shooters out there. That is because you can choose to fight on foot with your character Pilot or use a gigantic robot called Titan. Every player has different abilities and weapons and can engage in a number of different modes, like Deathmatch, Hardpoint, Attrition or Last Titan Standing.

The strong sides of Titanfall could be drawbacks for some gamers who are new to shooter titles. In many ways, the Titanfall resembles Call of Duty. Throughout the game, players earn points, which they can use to gain abilities, improve their equipment and level up. In addition, controlling your characters during combat is a hefty task simply because it involves a lot of quick thinking. For example, you need to decide whether you want to fight on foot or with the Titan robot. Still, if you are fan of the genre, you will find these aspects of the game extremely fascinating.

Since Titanfall is developed for Microsoft’s Xbox consoles and Windows PCs, it is best if you order the title from the Microsoft Store. Apart from the game, there you will also find many special-edition accessories and bundles dedicated to Titanfall, like the Xbox One Titanfall Limited Edition Wireless Controller, Mad Catz Titanfall Kunai Stereo Headset for Xbox 360 or the Xbox One and Kinect Titanfall Edition Bundle. Many of these items can also be purchased from Amazon even though their availability it more limited there. Best Buy, offers only the game itself, but it sells it on a bargain price. Therefore, your choice of retailer depends on your needs.
