I still don't get the love FFX gets, it was soo annoying and senseless to me.
It's probably due to nostalgia and the different standards that people had when the game was released. Back then, I think linear RPG was far more acceptable than it is today. Plus, the Final Fantasy had alot more good will from the players than it does today due to some successful sequels.
I have to admire Mike20's perseverance. Even though he lost years of his wiki work, he continues to wiki edit. I would have hesitated on returning to wiki editing because I would be so demoralized if I lost 1 million+ points. Mike20 is truly a wonder.
@GokaiRed: Lol. That's exactly the reason why people liked Batman Arkham Asylum. Most felt that being self contained made it more polished.
@Sonata: @takashichea: Here's another review round up
But for all its strengths, its reliance on tried and true modes and rigid maps stops Titanfall achieving its full potential. Capture the Flag, Attrition, and Domination are the best gametypes, but none of them show the same invention that’s occurring elsewhere in the title
The overarching experience of playing Titanfall is one of rejuvenation and reinvigoration. The sprint speed, the arsenal, the game modes, and more are all firmly derived from some of the most successful online shooters of recent years.
Titanfall is the rare game that feels like it came out on top of the few compromises Respawn has had to make. Sliding the spectacle and holy shit moments of an epic campaign among bold, fast multiplayer that steals unlikely elements, Respawn has made them shine like they belonged there all along.
For a multiplayer-only game, Titanfall should have some amazing options and ways to play. But it doesn’t. It has a very healthy number of maps (15), but the lack of interesting new modes will make you feel shortchanged for not getting a single-player campaign.
Thrillingly chaotic and expertly tuned,Titanfall is a fairly orthodox FPS elevated to greatness by dozens of intelligent design choices. One-note? Perhaps. But what a note.
When it’s not all a clash of the you-know-whats, when there’s a volatile mix of scampering boots and earth-rattling bipeds on the battlefield, Titanfall truly excels.
Titanfall blends familiar concepts with innovative ideas in remarkable ways, leading to a nearly nonstop supply of awesome moments.
Titanfall is an accessible, well-balanced and intensely enjoyable multiplayer first-person shooter that successfully delivers on the concept of blending human and mech combat.
Titanfall is a very good shooter, and I’m always a fan of any game that lets players use movement to separate themselves from the herd. Nevertheless, I feel like Respawn is simply setting the foundation here — what they really want is for us to prepare for Titanfall 2.
Titanfall lives up to all the expectations established when it was first revealed, in a way that so few games are able ever to accomplish, and represents nothing short of first-person shooter multiplayer taken to new heights.
What you get is a super-fast paced shooter experience, some epic moments in wall-running and shooting guys, and a truly original feeling of competitive multiplayer. As a result, I’d recommend it to anyone,
You forget whatever marketing and money that’s been poured into the team that this is one studio, making one game, and are trying to add something new to the genre. There’s no sense here the team have held back; this is work made with their heart and soul.
So, while Titanfall delivers amazing next-generation action, its next-generation business plan isn’t nearly as impressive.
Screw you guys for not releasing it here (South Africa) or even sending us a review copy… *sulk*
Game Informer – 9/10
Even years later, Final Fantasy X is still an exciting RPG, telling a compelling story with plenty of momentum. While the crazy girls-night-out theatrics of X-2 might still cause you to roll your eyes, the battle system is still fast and fun. For those who want the complete arc of the Final Fantasy X saga, the collection delivers. Even without a nostalgic lens, both games hold up well.
Destructoid – 8/10
As far as videogame remasters go, Final Fantasy X and X-2 are at the top of the list as far as quality is concerned. It’s clear that Square Enix put a lot of time into both of these beloved titles, and as a series fan I really appreciate that. They’ve made both of these great games even better with this remastering, and any fan of either should definitely check them out.
IGN – 9.3
With enhanced art and music, tons of extra in-game content, cross-save compatibility, and bundling two huge games for the price of one, it’s a lot of bang for your buck. There’s so much to see and do, and being rewarded with new Trophies for going the extra mile with challenges and exploration feels great.
Lazygamer – F**k we forgot (to review the game) again
Poke Zoe with a stick, she said that she wanted to be our RPG lady and I don’t buy her story of Tales of Symphonia burning her out after 60 hours. Also, Darryn needs to stop singing the FF-X2 theme song and dressing up like Yuna.
@Bigheart711: Thanks BigHeart
And a double thank you to this guy. Without him, it wouldn't have been possible.
@Dream: Thanks, Dream!
What are we covering, the wiki or the forums?
Since I moderated both the wiki and forums on Screened, I think I'll continue doing that over here.
