And so Titanfall 2 finds itself sandwiched between Battlefield 1 and Call of Duty: Infinity Warfare. We’ve already voiced our concerns, worried that it’s going to end up shoved to the wayside. Now that reviews have surfaced however we’re a tad more optimistic about chances of success – like Battlefield 1 before it, reviews with scores lower than 8/10 are hard to find.
Critics are almost entirely in agreement that it’s the game that the original should have been, ergo the epitome of a perfect sequel. Amongst the high scores, we have 9.5s from both GameInformer and God is a Geek. “In a year of incredible shooters already released in Gears of War 4 and Battlefield 1, Titanfall 2 is another outstanding example which absolutely stands out from the crowd” said the latter.
As you may be aware, reviews of Elder Scrolls V: Skyrim Special Edition won’t be going live before Friday’s launch. This is all down to Bethesda’s new policy of withholding review code until a day before a game’s release. To quote: “We want everyone, including those in the media, to experience our games at the same time.” It’s a move that has angered some, opening a whole can of worms in the process.
Reviews of World of Final Fantasy have gone live in good time, thankfully. “World of Final Fantasy feels like a game that celebrates the series’ massive legacy while also making it friendlier to a younger audience. Unfortunately, it stumbles in a few key places, making it more of an awkward mixer than the all-encompassing RPG party players might be anticipating” warned GameSpot before handing out a lukewarm 6/10.
