Another week, another critically acclaimed first-person shooter from EA. Titanfall 2 will finally mech a mess of the PlayStation 4 this week – not that anyone cares what with it being sandwiched between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. Apparently it's really good, though. Honest. We'll confirm when we actually, y'know, receive our copy.
GameSpot - 9/10
And lastly, Titanfall 2 demonstrates a vitality that its predecessor couldn't. Whereas the first Titanfall kept up its breakneck pace throughout the entirety of every match, Titanfall 2 understands that sometimes, dialing things back for a few moments can make the long run much more enjoyable. In many ways, Titanfall 2 feels like the game Respawn should have made in 2013. It's a fantastic sequel. It's a fluid shooter. It's a spectacular game.
Games Radar - 4.5/5
Titanfall 2 might well be this year's best surprise. The original game's gorgeously tactile, flowing traversal systems always had great potential as the fuel of a single-player campaign, but the care and craft that Respawn has instilled into creating that adventure will blindside you. It's immediately gratifying on a moment-to-moment basis, but as a complete work and experience, it's one of the most creative and rewarding FPS in recent memory.
US Gamer - 4/5
Although it's a little on the short side, and its production values are a bit oldschool, Titanfall 2's single-player campaign is a really enjoyable experience while it lasts. It's very inventive and fun, and a great warm-up for the game's excellent multiplayer component, whose gunplay and controls are absolutely outstanding. All it needs is a few more maps and modes.
Polygon - 7/10
Consistency is a problem for Titanfall 2 in general, and it's a game that seems to struggle with a confident direction for its changes. The end result is a collection of fantastic mechanics across its campaign and its multiplayer that often feel hamstrung by difficult to understand design choices. There's clearly more here than before, and the package is offering something more "complete" by today's standards. But Titanfall 2 throws the series' dynamics off enough to make for something that just doesn't quite click together as well as it did before.
