Titanfall 2 (PC) review
"Just another run-of-the-mill twitch shooter."
Titanfall is back with a sequel. It features more robots, more action, and more silly parkour. Most notably, however, it features a single player campaign, which the first game lacked. This review will be divided into two sections, as the single player and multiplayer aspects are completely different animals.
The story of the campaign takes place sometime after the conclusion of Titanfall. At last word, the valiant Militia forces (the good guys) had struck a decisive blow against the evil Interstellar Manufacturing Corporation (IMC) by destroying one of their primary refueling bases. This effectively cut off their access to the outer reaches of space (known as "The Frontier"), which the good guys consider their territory. This was supposed to turn the tide in the Militiaís favour, but it seems that the developers decided to retcon the story a bit and say that the iconic "Battle of Demeter" wasnít really as big a deal as we wouldíve liked to believe. This means that the hero of the first game, James MacAllan, who sacrificed his life to ensure that victory, apparently died in vain. Oh well.
So weíre back to square one, and the Militia and IMC are battling it out again just like old times. In this chaos, a young rifleman named Jack Cooper (you) receives a field promotion after his commanding officer is killed. As you absorb his rank, you also take possession of his Titan. Lucky you! Then you get to spend the next hour scrabbling together parts for it, sneaking around the gorgeous jungles of an alien world while fighting off feral wildlife and evading IMC soldiers. When you manage to repair your Titan, though, all bets are off Ė itís time to kick some ass and get revenge. The early parts of the game are a blast, and the story starts off strong.
