Bayonetta 2 Review
Bayonetta 2 is nothing but a pure, action-packed game that values a player skill, reaction time, also, it has a good storytelling with a hint of realism in it. It feels as if the developers took influence from others games such as Devil Man Cry and Ninja Gaiden in the game’s combat mechanics and that’s visible in its beautiful graphics but neither one of those games or any other similar games have come close to the brilliant game that Bayonetta 2 is. It’s in its own league when it comes to action design, the outstanding graphics really make the combat satisfying to look at with its sharpness, it’s one of the most fun combat to ever experience in a video game. It has finally arrived on the Nintendo Switch and it brings all of the fun but with better frame rate for more smoothness in the gameplay so it’s even better than before. There’s no wait for you to jump into the action, the game puts you in the action right away, I can’t think of too many games that have done that before where the opening scenes are just as exciting as the ending scenes. Only within a few minutes, you will have traveled through space on top of a falling building, slice golden angles, and hopped in a machine gun robot. New players might button bash in the opening scenes but the plain sight of it all makes them no less exciting.
The basics of the combat system are briefly explained but the game doesn’t hold your hand through everything, it’s up to the player to learn new combos in the fight which is part of the fun, a game where skill actually matters, where the better players dominate and the weaker players stay on the low. The design of the levels and the enemies in them are what encourages you to learn new combos and improve yourself as a player. Building on the original game Bayonetta’s strengths, Bayonetta 2 builds off of the combat system which isn’t a bad thing since the free-flowing combat remains its greatest asset. Each punch, kick, and weapon swing flows comfortably into the next move which makes it very satisfying. Everything move at fast and smooth 60fps with excellent animations, more opportunities to dodge, more fun weapons to unlock than ever. Each weapon feels unique and has its combos that can be mixed which brings your own unique play style. Executing combos feels natural and makes the player feel strong when attacking the enemies. This game isn’t overpowered, even on normal difficulty, you shouldn’t underestimate your enemies. There are many enemy types from small flying type to large bosses and they each have their own unique attack patterns and move that separates each one from another. Every boss has its own cool and unique design and none act the same way. The repeated enemy variety makes you feel like you are never fighting the same enemy more than once and keeps the game fresh.
The amazing combat system of Bayonetta 2 is uplifted by the art design and pacing and makes the original game Bayonetta 1 look poor by comparison. Missions never let up, making new and more enemies pop up on different landscapes. The design of the levels give you the space to use the game’s abilities, so you can go through the platform areas as a panther or swim underwater as a sea serpent. It’s also useful to use in combat. Every aspect of Bayonetta 2 feels done, focused and polished. Sometimes the writing can feel a bit weird but you will still love the way it plays. The pacing and the combat are just that good. By the end of the game, you will be convinced that this game builds on everything the original one had but better and more satisfying.
- Good visuals on the characters
- Beautiful World Design
- A lot of details in the combat
- Some of the best action out in a game
- Solo campaigns are a bit short
- Visual upgrades from the Wii U are small
God of War
God of War had always made a similar type of game since its original game in its franchise in 2005 but with the latest addition to the series with this game, the developers took a risk to change the whole formula for the game, to change the fundamentals of the franchise may upset the fan base that has been around for a long time. Sony took a gamble with this choice to change everything up but they ended up winning the gamble because God of War is an amazing game with outstanding combat and visuals with a satisfying, engaging story. The stunning details and the luxuriant world built with the mind-blowing detail make it wondrous to explore. It gives it more room to breath, allowing the players to see the Kratos and Atreus relationship build stronger over the game. A lot has changed in this game compared to the previous God of War games but one core component has stayed the same which is the combat, it’s just as entertaining and satisfying as ever before.
Here’s a brief summary of this game, Kratos’s vengeance for the gods of Olympus is now far back in the past, now he lives in the lands of Norse Gods and monsters. He has to survive while teaching his son, Atreus to do the same in the harsh and forgiving world that they live in. As his mentor and parent, he is determined to earn his respect, Kratos is faced with an unpredicted challenge to control the rage that has defined him for the longest time. Questioning the dark lineage that he has passed on to his on, Kratos wants to make amends for the flaws in his past. Set within the wild forests, mountains, and the realms of Norse lore, this game features a unique setting with its own type of creatures, monsters, and gods. This story takes some time to unfold, God of War is slower paced than the previous games which may not be for all original fan base but giving it the time, definitely pays off because you have more time connecting with the characters and the storyline.
The story wouldn’t be half as impacting if it wasn’t for the beautiful visuals. The level of details is jaw-dropping. To be specific, the facial details in the cutscenes are outstanding, even better, the difference in visuals between cutscenes and actual gameplay is super minor, sometimes you can’t even tell when the cutscenes are over and when you are given the control because the graphics are overloading. Moving away from Greek to Norse mythology, God of War makes excellent use of the source material, bringing in new characters and monsters that are just as essential to the game as they are good to look at.
When it comes to the combat, God of War has one of the best in the gaming industry. It’s complex and can ask a lot from the player in terms of pressing buttons when it comes to big combos but for casual players, they can do simple combos which doesn’t take too much time to learn or skill to do. The over-the-shoulder perspective is a new way the game plays, everything becomes more visceral and gives the player a much closer experience to the action.
God of War tells an amazing story in a beautiful appeasing setting with more than just blood of your enemies. It sucks to see that the boss fights have gotten a little dull compared to previous games but at the cost of what Santa Monica built, it’s worth it. The ending of God of War isn’t as impressive as what the fans might have hoped for but it opens to many possibilities to the sequel to this game and has me and many other fans excited.
- Beautiful graphics
- Big amount of gameplay
- Amazing combat system
- In-depth combat via characters upgrades
- Excellent father and son storytelling
- No Load Screens
- Kratos is the main character
- Boss fights are kind of dull
- Change of pace won’t be for everyone
- Ending is not that satisfying
Call of Duty: WWII
WWII or also known as COD: WW2 is a first-person shooter game. There are 3 different game modes in this game which are the Campaign, Multiplayer, Nazi Zombies. First, we’re going to talk about Campaign.
As you could probably guess, the story takes place in the World War 2 era. This storyline is definitely way more interesting than the previous Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare. COD finally returned to boots on the ground. You play as a U.S. Army Private First Class Ronald “Red” Daniels. We don’t want to spoil the storyline for you but we can say that it’s better than a couple of COD games from previous years and it’s definitely worth playing. In this COD campaign, there’s no health regeneration, you have pick health packs scattered around the levels or from your medic. This will create a challenge in the campaign to stay alive and manage your health since other CODs from the recent years haven’t had this feature.
- Good setting
- Good story
- Good gun mechanics
- Small storyline
- Can’t connect to the characters
To round it off, if you haven’t played previous CODs campaigns, you should play this one. Next, let’s talk about Nazi Zombies.
Nazi Zombies is similar yet different to Treyarch Zombies. If you’re playing a game with zombies, you want to get scared and this game delivers that since the developers of Nazi Zombies have made horror games before. It opens up with the prologue which tells you how to play and about the characters. The first map Nacht der Untoten has a good flow to the map which means it’s easy to get places and you won’t get trapped in a group of zombies. The map is also easy to learn, play it a couple of times and you will know where everything is. The map design is very well done, everything part of the map fits that part, for ex. There are tunnels with horrifying objects. If you have played the previous zombies, then you know that the perks are different from before. They have different German names but they have a description next to the name so you’ll know what you get. Weapons are diverse, other than the mystery box which grants you random weapons, weapons are scattered over the map, even in the beginning, you’ll have some choice. You are able to pick a class for ex. Medic which has their own ability.
There are also different types of zombies such as flying zombies and boss zombies which add a challenge and as you progress, it gets tougher to survive. As we mentioned the developers have created horror games before, therefore, this game has jumpscares that can be scary as jumping up in the air or annoying at times but to add to that, the game also has an amazing scary soundtrack that fits in nicely with the game. Since there’s only 1 map currently, it will get repetitive after a while so just wait for the DLCs. The gameplay is consistent, you’ll know what to do and your playstyle will work for every game. There are 2 easter eggs, 1 being hard and other being easy but both were good enough to keep doing them.
- New innovation of Zombies
- Hours and Days of playing time
- Good Graphics
- Maps flow nice
- Easter eggs are fun to do
- Can get boring without friends
- Not beginner friendly (no way to know how to do easter egg)
This year COD did multiplayer a little different with new additions but less content for now. At the release of WWII, it had some bad press due to its bad servers but now it’s totally fine. This year they added Headquarters which is like where you can interact with other players, prestige weapons and level, choose challenges, 1v1 and more. This year they also removed perks with the addition of divisions and basic training. Divisions are kind of like perks, they changed the create a class with it, each made for a certain class of weapons, for ex. Mountain division for snipers. As you play with a certain division equipped, you level it up, giving you more abilities that help you during gunfights and such. Basic training is basically an additional set of perks. This game uses the same engine as Advanced Warfare. The gun mechanics feel good, the maps that are in the game have a good flow. The graphics look good. There are only 9 maps in the regular game modes like TDM, DOM, FFF, SND etc. and there are 3 War maps so if you don’t play War, you will have to stick to 9 maps which can get boring after a while. There’s a good variety of weapons.
- Good innovation
- Good weapons variety
- Good graphics
- Guns feel good
- Maps flow good
- Not enough maps
- Can get repetitive
Overall, I’ll say that the game is good and you should play it if you like FPS games, it has its flaws but with way more pros than cons. It can bring days worth of gameplay and fun. Whether you are playing solo or with friends, this game is fun regardless. You will definitely get your money’s worth from all the days worth of fun that it can bring.back to menu ↑
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe
Mario Kart 8 is one of the best kart racing games that Nintendo has ever made but also one of the best kart racing games in general. It takes old working ideas and combines it with its new fresh ideas. The graphics are amazing and the jazzy type soundtrack really sucks you in while you are playing the game and makes you jam to it. This game is more than just about the graphics and the music, the fast-paced racing with friends and others keeps on bringing players back to this game. Playing with friends is super fun to play at parties because it can get super competitive while staying friendly and easy. Mario Kart 8 Deluxe includes everything from Mario Kart 8 but also, all the previous released DLC with some new things added. This means you get a lot more content for your money, you get 48 new courses and 42 new characters, and some other extra things such as 200cc speed class. Every course, character, and mode is unlocked from the beginning which means you can jump straight in and hit the track. The game is very welcoming to new gamers with it’s Smart Steering so it’s easier to drive and if you are a casual player or new to gaming then, this really helps.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe graphics are amazing on the Switch, it looks just as good in 2018 as it did in 2014 and the great art style is one of the reasons that the graphics have stood the time. The course designs are outstanding and thought out. Some that I love would be the Mario Circuit and how it twists and bends like a Mobius strip. Another example would be the SNES Rainbow Road or F-Zero’s Mute City because of their many details that are noticeable whether you are playing on a TV or a handheld console. The fps drops from 60 to 30fps sometimes when you are playing with friends but the racing is too good looking where the fps drop is not even a dealbreaker. Some other additions to the game are the new Battle mode, as well as the five smart objective modes, each one is unique and brings its own competitive angle to the eight areas. The Balloon Battle mode is where you have to take advantage of items and position yourself smartly in order to score points by popping the enemy’s balloons.
Shine Thief is a crazy game mode, and action-packed. Bob-bomb Blast is an explosive, over the top, crazy game modes. Coin runners is a game mode about gathering coin, it isn’t the best game mode compared to others because it lacks a lot of the excitement from the other game modes.There are tiny improvements that are noticeable such as the game loading in faster and swapping characters or karts between races. The best game mode is the Renegade Roundup, it’s super suspenseful where a team tries to avoid a group of Piranha Plant cops until the timer runs out, if a teammate is caught then, you can free them with skillful driving but you risk getting caught.
Mario Kart 8 Deluxe is an amazing game because it’s a beautiful kart racing game and just as addictive as it was in 2014. This is the best game in the Mario Kart series so far and has every piece of content you’ll need. Returning players have seen a lot of the game but the Battle mode and the new five additional ways to play are a good reason to purchase this game. The online experience could be better, but every other bit of the game makes up for it hard.
- Beautiful graphics on the Switch and TV
- Battle Mode is an amazing addition
- A lot of challenges for all skill levels
- More assistant for beginners
- Plentiful tracks and characters
- Some people want a new Mario Kart on the Switch
Kirby Star Allies
Kirby Star Allies is a game built around Kirby who’s a pink ball of goo, this should make you know that this game is a bit crazy. Nintendo has been working on the Kirby games for years and this game is one of the best in the franchise, this game will make you settle down and play it on the new Nintendo Switch. Unlike the other traditional Kirby games, in this game, Kirby is joined by 3 other characters which can be AI or actual people controlling them. You engage with platforming and puzzling. It’s crucial that everyone takes their own responsibility because teamwork is important in this game as it is with a lot of Nintendo games since they focus a lot of their games to be played together with friends and family and that’s what this game is about. It’s not as enjoyable playing alone as it is, playing with friends.
As always, Kirby can suck in enemies to use their powers and that’s how he gets through any possible hardships. In Star Allies, you get friends heart and throwing them at an enemy adds them to your team. You are to build an army that would be useful for the threats that will come up against you and that concept is fun and gripping. Nothing compares to having actual people to form a group and play with but an AI does a good enough job of filling the roles necessary if you don’t have anyone to play with. They don’t get in your way and always follow your lead because they don’t want to take the spotlight from the actual player.
All of the playings takes one screen. You don’t split screen with others and that’s why you have to go forward and back as a team. Also, Star Allies is more than just a platformer. To start off, you can combine abilities within your group which can be used to progress forward. You have to experiment to figure out what works and utilize your power to beat the obstacles that come your way. It’s challenging but also satisfying. This game also keeps you guessing of what’s next to come which keeps the game entertaining for the time. Most of the time, all of the players are supposed to stick together but sometimes you may have to separate into pairs and coordinate working through a part of the map or split off to make the boss feel a bit different from another. This works well if you are playing with friends but the developers balanced to make it work as much as possible. The struggles between you and your friends are where the fun lies.
There are mini-games that also keep you busy alongside the main story where you will get involved in some wacky scenarios. Some of them can be you chopping down a tree while trying to stop you or you attempting to battle a giant asteroid. They sound dumb but when it comes to Kirby, it’s totally normal.
There’s a lot of things when it comes to Kirby Star Allies and none of it can be said to be bad in any sense but rather, it’s all good. This game is another of many games of the Switch and the library of the games seem to get bigger and better with each month passing by. This can open up this game to a whole new audience and make it even bigger. Making this a more multiplayer focused game seemed to make it work compared to other takes of Kirby games in the past, Kirby manages to stay relevant. This game might be something different to what the fans of Kirby might’ve been expecting but once they get their hands on it, I’m sure they will enjoy it and so will you if you were to purchase it. It’s a simple game that is sure to put a smile on your and your friend’s faces.
- A fun multiplayer game with friends
- Puzzles are satisfying and thought out
- Graphics are easy on the eye and pleasant to look at
- Not that fun when played alone
- Hardcore Kirby fans might be disappointed
Monster Hunter World: for PS4
Some fans of the series were a little disappointed when Monster Hunter XX came to the Switch but only in Japan, the good thing this time is that that’s not the case. The biggest game in the franchise, Monster Hunter Word is available for all regions and it blows the previous western releases out of the water. The experienced players can recognize the gameplay style in Monster Hunter World. You go through a cycle involving crafting weapons, bulking up, killing monsters and looting them for materials. Its hunting landscape feels huge, each big area has its own unique ecosystem. It has an almost overwhelming amount of possibilities for customization and specialization. Also, it’s an experience where you could almost live there.
Monster Hunter is a series that always offer more and more with each game. Its games are openly speaking, action-based RPGs that is built around a constant gameplay loop. Like in many crafting games, you begin with nothing but a weak weapon and the chainmail on your back but as you get materials from your prey and the environments they live in, use them to build strong gear and then you can use them to fight stronger monsters. The beauty of the game is the many ways the game offers you to complete the loop.
There are hundreds of things to learn for the players, each thing with different stats attached that the players can appreciate. This might sound like too much for new players but this game does an amazing job of easing players into its game. A lot of the complicated things aren’t there in the beginning hours of the game, leaving you with all the freedom the World’s outstanding monsters in the game’s gorgeous environments. The opening time of this game, the tutorial introduces the hub and the main mechanics and it’s so well done that you will be free to head out into the wild and begin hunting right away.
There were no long cutscenes where an NPC gives you information with pages of how a potion would work but instead, it teaches you by actually doing it. Ignoring information about things like armor defense or weapon’s damage output and just choosing things that looked cool is a great way of giving new players to learn for themselves. For the hardcore gamers, the info is still there but it only becomes more necessary when the monsters get more dangerous, that is when you have to really be strategic in your hunts.
Having the ability for the players to enjoy the experience allows them time to take in World’s stunning landscapes. Each world you visit is totally different from the last but each world is full of rich detail and the absurd amount of things to discover, it’s like a buffet for the eyes and worth taking time to appreciate each visual detail. You might be able to argue that you are doing the same thing in each world but it’s fun and satisfying and that makes it never get old. Each fight with monsters is different, and each fight is played is different than the last. Because of the World’s vibrant looking ecosystems, you never exactly sure what might be ahead of you. Also, the combat is the best thing of them all. Unlike, other RPGs, rank, and levels aren’t tied to your characters but instead, you only get better by killing monsters and looting their bodies. This allows you to build stronger weapons and armor making your defenses and attack against bigger monsters better.
This is one of the best RPGs you will ever play and the most welcoming that the series has ever offered. It’s not hard to see why this series has such a dedicated fan base and not it is set to grow even larger than before because of the steps that the developers took to make the game more welcoming to as many players as possible.
- Deep and satisfying gameplay
- Beautiful visuals and unique worlds
- A lot of depth to its systems
- Every monster is a new challenge
- Story is super engaging
- Online matches can sometimes be fiddly to set up
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild
The Legend of Zelda: Breath of the Wild is a story based game where you play as the protagonist Link. In this game, you wake up from this magical tomb 100 years after the fall of the high rule. You start off in the opening area where you are given some guidance, once you get the power glider, the game starts and the whole map is available to you which is huge where you can do many things like complete the main story or do side quests or just explore and many more. It’s up to you what you need or wants to do when the game starts. Sometimes the map can feel huge and make it RPG like Witcher or Skyrim but the gameplay mechanics make it feel like one of its kind and make it feel like a Zelda game.
This game does not tell you much and lets you do things by yourself which can be scary but when you unlock something or do something by yourself, it’s super satisfying and rewarding. The combat is like any other Zelda game but more challenging. For example, weapons degrading really quick which can be annoying but later in the game, there are workarounds for it. You do get side weapons like axes, hammers, and swords. You will use all types of weapons at least once which refreshes the gamer and helps them experience something new. You travel across fields, the forests, and mountains and discover what has happened to the kingdom of Hyrule. Climbing mountains and towners reveals new destinations and you get there by yourself in any way you like. You get to battle exciting enemies, hunt down beasts and gather ingredients for food and elixirs that will come in handy in order for you to sustain on your journey.
There are more than 100 Shrines to be discovered and explored. You can discover them in any order, search for them anyway and solve a variety of puzzles inside the shrines. Working your way through the hardships like traps and devices will help you to earn special items and other rewards that will be very useful in your adventure.
One tip that I can give you is always be prepared and properly equipped, with a huge world to be explored, you will find hard monsters to battle and they will get harder as you progress through the game. That’s why you will need a variety of outfits and gear for the variety of monsters that you will fight. Sometimes you have to wear warmer clothes or wear something suitable for the desert environment. Some clothes have special effects, for example, some clothes can make you quicker and stealthier. Battling monsters and enemies requires strategy, this game has enemies of all shape and size with their own specific method of attacking and weaponry so you have to think quick on your feet and think of the right strategy to take them down. A cool thing that this game has that it’s amiibo compatible so you can tap the Wolf Link amiibo which is sold separately but it spawns Wolf Link appears in the game and it will attack enemies on its own and help you find items that you are searching for.
To conclude, this game is beautiful and there are an endless amount of things to do, even small things like climbing the mountain to find a shrine feels like a journey which is satisfying. There’s so much content in this game and so much to explore, you have the full freedom of doing whatever you want to do. If you haven’t tried this game, then what are you doing? Go and buy it right now because it’s worth every penny. I would even say that it’s the game of the year and would rate it 10/10.
- Beautiful graphics
- Huge world to explore
- Amazing depth
- Incredibly satisfying gameplay
- Beautiful art style of the game
- Challenging but good for casual players
- A lot of content, never get bored
- Ok voice acting
- Some performance dips
Splatoon 2 feels less like a squeal but rather like a DLC or a more deluxe version Splatoon 1 because there is a lot of things that are carried from the first game like the main hub area is almost identical, little graphics upgrade. There are 10 multiplayer maps at the start of the game and some of them are from the first game as well. The weapons are new but as for the mechanics, a lot of it is the same. This shouldn’t matter if you haven’t played the original game before since then, Splatoon 2 will be totally fresh. There’s wasn’t a lot that was wrong with the original game and you know what they say, If it ain’t broken then, don’t fix it. Splatoon 2 is easily lovable, it’s very colorful and not afraid to be different, also, it’s always satisfying when you play. As far as shooting games go, this game has its own unique movement mechanics that make each match exciting.
Multiplayer is without a doubt the primary draw of Splatoon 2, yet both new and returning players have to totally play new single player mode before hopping into a multiplayer game. Unlike in the first game, where you could only use the basic Splattershot gun in the campaign, Splatoon 2’s fills in as an amazing introduction to all the essential weapon types you’ll be using and it’s way more thriving, with collectibles that require a sharp eye to discover and creative platforming challenges that truly shows how one of a kind Splatoon 2’s movement style is for a shooting game.
Also, keeping in mind that the campaign starts off easy but as each level goes by, the more it builds on the last one and requiring more knowledge of the game to be used. While on the rails and shooting enemies and then changing to your squid shape and effectively landing a tricky jump is fulfilling not just because it’s fun and sick but rather it truly feels like you’ve mastered Splatoon 2’s mechanics.
Sadly, a lot of the things you learn in the campaign don’t make it into the multiplayer, most noticeably is the rail grinding thing which isn’t possible in multiplayer. That’s an opportunity that the developers could’ve had but unfortunately, they missed out on it but getting to use a variety of weapons make it easier to transition into multiplayer and small changes to weapons and gear gives an experienced player a new strategy. Also, most of the maps are new and some fan favorites are Inkblot Art Academy and The Reef which both have a lot of vertical levels that result in more struggles for control of the higher ground.
The multiplayer mode for non-ranked games is Turf War which is always fun to play that having one casual mode is no problem. In it, the team that covers the most ground with your ink wins. Ranked battles return with Tower Control, Rainmaker and Splat Zones and they are similar to game types you might have seen in other shooters. Tower Control is escorting a tower to a goal, Rainmaker is like reverse capture the flag and Spal Zones require you to control some areas for a certain amount of time by covering them by your team’s ink.
At first look, this game seems very similar to the original one and it is but small changes and some major ones in the campaign and League Battles, make it a fresh take on the shooter genre. If you have played the original game, then this game has enough content and enjoyment to make it worthwhile for you to buy it. And if you are new, then it shouldn’t be a problem and you should totally jump in and get it right now.
- Beautiful graphics on Switch and TV
- Multiplayer is still fun and unique
- A lot of guns and each fun to use
- Doesn’t feel like a sequel
- Sometimes it can be slow to get into a match

Titanfall 2 is a First Person Shooter game that is all about momentum. The game knows when you should rush and when you should breathe. Titanfall 2 delivers both single-player campaign and multiplayer, it has more measured pace than its predecessor, making the build-up to the battles just as exciting as the events. It’s just as fast paced while being smooth and fluid as Titanfall but it’s a much better First Person Shooter than the first one. The first game didn’t deliver campaign and that was one of the reasons that the game was short lived even with its massive hype before release. People had doubts about the campaign but they helped create some of the best campaigns out to date. The campaign of Titanfall 2 had a rich and diverse campaign.
In the campaign, Titanfall 2 delivers an experience that explores the bond between man and machine. The campaign lets the players step out onto The Frontier as a Militia rifleman with the dreams of becoming an elite Pilot. You have to go through obstacles and team up with a Titan to support a mission they were never meant to do. In multiplayer, the developers continue to evolve the game to improve the game’s gameplay to provide a better experience for the player and that delivers expanded depth and variety that including six new Titans, in-depth Pilot abilities, more customizations, and a strong progression system that satisfies the players.
At first, the campaign doesn’t feel remarkable or satisfying but slowly builds into an experience of magnificent scale and connects the players with the story and builds emotions. The campaign of Titanfall 2 surpasses the campaigns of games like Advanced Warfare and Doom because they allow players to express themselves through harsh play. To achieve this, the developers take influence from other games like the superb set-piece design of Half Like, the speed of Vanquish, the crazy acrobatics of Bulletstorm, and the brutality of Binary Domain. All of these things make this game into something beautiful.
The controls for this game are highly responsive and the animations are outstanding. There are a vast variety of weapons which makes every encounter with enemies different and exciting to look forward to. Titanfall 2 also has some of the highest intelligent level design offered in the recent years. Sometimes, Titanfall 2 gets too complicated with these designs. Sometimes, if you travel long distances to find that you’ve looped to where you started from. Other times, the game fails to communicate distances and pathways.
The multiplayer gives the players all the good things from the first Titanfall game buttighter, more accessible and more refined. It introduces new maps and new modes to the game. The maps do a good job of covering the range of scales and game types, always balancing the Pilots and the Titans.
Titanfall 2 is one of the best game for its year, the campaign is new and innovating and it’s designed amazingly. The multiplayer did have problems and lacked its full potential and compared to the campaign, it doesn’t offer the best experience but it’s still worth trying and still satisfies the needs of an FPS game. It’s speed and the action-packed events that suck you in the game and if you haven’t played the game yet, you should try it out because it’s a different FPS experience compared to the standards like Call of Duty.
- Impressive and innovating campaign
- Amazing combat and movement mechanics
- Multiplayer improves on the original game
- Graphics aren’t the best compared to other games from that year
