Titanfall Beta: Heaps of Fun

Mark Serrels at Kotaku AU:

I had a busy weekend, but still managed to squeeze in a handful of games and I’ve come to this conclusion: Titanfall is the perfect game for people who used to love Call of Duty and are now a little sick of Call of Duty. Yes, that’s pretty much everyone who plays games. Yes, that is meant to be a compliment.

Completely agree. I have a pet theory going that Titanfall is angling to be Microsoft’s next-gen successor to the Halo brand.

I played the game for a couple hours on PC on the weekend, and man. Where Call of Duty is heavy, plodding and claustrophobic, Titanfall is free-flowing, light & agile. It’s refreshing.
