I keep telling all my friends at work with Xbox Ones that Titanfall looks meh.




I kinda wanna play it mean.gif

I did play an xbone at someone's house last night though. Wasn't impressed. Felt like a glorified 360.

How many hours did you play before it got "good."

I played ac3 for about  7 hours before it got good.

Was that similar for you with ac4?

Some thoughts on Lightning Returns: Final Fantasy.

All story elements will be in spoilers (in addition to the spoiler below). I apologize for any spelling, grammar, ect. Also if I seem overly critical when compared to the score, it's just because I am a pessimist. laugh.gif A 7.5 is what I feel it should get from me. I just may not articulate it that well.

If you don't want to read it, I'd personally give the game an 7.5/10 and say its a solid RPG. I'd recommend playing it if you like the genre.
Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
I'll try and spilt this up a bit.

Story
This is what the reviews were complaining about. To be honest until about 3/4 of the way through I though the story was solid. As soon as Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
you find out about the Chaos being the exact opposite of what you'd thought it was the entire series
it starts to just unravel. The scenes immediately proceeding the final fight are good, but the post credit scene is very unexpected and a little strange. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
So the killed God, created a new world, but that world is Earth? If so, that is a very strange ending unless they plan to continue this in XV.
Overall, its fairly simple to follow... you're basically Jesus trying to save all these peoples souls. Although I'd identify as Agnostic/Atheist/Apathetic, I do know the Christian bible well. The story was very interesting until it began to get so convoluted, trite, and predictable (even in it's twists) that I lost some interest.

That said, it still helped push the game along and thats all you really care about at the end of the day. I just think it could have been done alot cleaner, to the point, and with less fan fare.

Sidequests actually had some of the best dialogue and story in the entire game. Several had great, thought out sections that made me want to actually finish the occasional monotonous quest to see what would happen.

They made lightning likable! Never thought Id see the day. I was rooting for her the entire way. Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Ironically, not having any feelings, she showed the most emotional range in the series

Graphics
What happened? This game looks AMAZING in some sections and laughably bad in others. The post-final battle sequence is so crisp and clean. Most scenes with Lumina are very well done. But then you get the odd NPC who looks hilarious. Like an FFX HD remaster character. Even Lightning goes from looking great in some in-game moments to really bad. The lip syncing even goes through the wringer on occasion.

Enemy models are very good, animations in battle are very good. Basically anything you look at while controlling your character is very well done. Its just some dialogue scenes that really make stand out when you compare it to the rest.

Gameplay
Where to start? Open world is promised from the beginning and it delivers. However these spaces which seem vast when you first arrive, quickly shrink when you discover them. To the point I was disappointed with how little exploration there was after your initial dive in. And 4 areas with only 2 being truely open... weak.

New Game + in the game leaves such a bad taste in my mouth. Id rather they throw in a bunch of optional bosses or a new area, or anything new than play through the exact same game and missions with upgraded equipment. Dont even get me started on the trophy for accessories. YOU WANT ME TO FIND THEM ALL TWICE? That's monotony in it's truest form. Hard mode offers nothing but trying to streamline your schema strategy. Yes, upgrade weapons and shields, but why? Why not make the game longer/bigger so I have something unknown to tackle, rather than have me rush through a game Ive experienced just for battle variation? That tells me that they knew they had a strong battle system but either didnt have the talent or the time to make me want to continue.

FF XIII, while it did a few thing poorly, it had an amazing way to add gameplay after the last story battle. This game is embarrassing asking me to play through again on a different difficulty rather than just giving me more.

That said, the one optional area Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Ultimate Lair
is a joke. The other optional boss is fun and a great inclusion.

Battle system makes this game. Its fairly amazing. Its not without its rough edges, but it is awesome to be able to come into a fight and have several different ways to try to win. Some issues I had were the guarding. Not overly hard, but a pain to have to learn how to time each enemy/boss. Its important on 1st playthrough, basically impossible to win without it on any other. I could do without it, but I do see it's relevance. ALso, some of the equip-able items are useless. Not literally, but several schema, weapons, shields, and accessories can literally be used in a handful of fights and that is all. I loved experimenting, but unless I am missing something, a bunch of these (especially paid DLC indifferent.gif ) are useless.

Abilites were the same... alot were awesome and useful and let you have several methods to use in finding success. Some were literally there for 2-3 battles.

This is not an easy game, either. I played on Easy (EMBARRASSING!) and still died quite a bit. If you dont use the correct strategy, you're out of luck. The game does a good job of introducing stuff, except for schema. It touches on them, but there are so many intricacies it misses that you find out by trial and error. This may have been their intent, but it did cause me to fire up Google a dozen or so times. There are some vicious difficulty spikes Warning: Spoiler! (Click to show)
Caius, first trip to the Dunes, ect
.

The day thing isnt a huge deal. It is cool, especially for some sidequests, and the different times of day were neat to see. The whole time constraint thing was a bit contrived I thought.

I completed all quests but 2. Several were great, while the majority were good. A few were slogs to get through.

Loved the extinction aspect, but I thought 30 different enemies seemed very low. Id have liked more variety with less population to each.

I liked how it was similiar to XIV in terms of quests and open world, I just wish it was on that scale of enviroment variety. I know XIV has the advantage of being persistently online, updatable, ect... but LR:FF seems to pale in scope.

Music
Good. Not great, but definitely good. Love some of the smaller touches, with classic battle music making appearances in some parts. Hard to touch some of the classics, but I think it fit the game very well. Just not super memorable.

Overall
The game is good, but it could have been alot better. The environments, while huge and fun at first, start to get a little old as not alot changes as the game progresses. They were a bit lifeless at times, even with NPC's walking about.

Battles are really fun and even the smallest enemy had my attention with trying to stagger for abilities.

While I really enjoyed the first 12 hours, it never got better or changed much. It never got worse either... but thats not a positive. I just really wish theyd have focused on broadening the story, adding more enviroments post final boss, and added a little more variety to the quests.

Anyone has any questions, let me know.

word, thats my thinking. no matter HOW good a game is, its not worth buying an entire system for. i cant name 3 games that are coming out on the xbox1 that i care about, which is why i switched to ps4 to begin with. xbox is marketing titanfall as the ultimate shooter right now but i really just dont see it. looks like armored core meets crysis. not to mention no single player at all. as for the titans themselves, most of the reviews are saying theyre whatever because people jump on your back from anywhere and kill you in under 20 seconds and have PLENTY of weapons to do so from afar as well. If xbox wasn't feeding the hype machine to get people thinking this game is the cod/bf killer, nobody would think it is at all.

Any concern that titanfall may suffer the same as BF4?

I think it's fine that the Titans aren't all that overpowered. And the campaign is intertwined with multiplayer.

There's always this concern with EA.
