Titanfall, when it first came out, was a game I wanted to avoid. The hype train was so intense for this game that just the mention of it made me not care about Xbox. The reviews came out and while they were mostly positive I was expecting 10's across the board considering what had been said.
Fast forward a year. EA and Respawn decided to make the season pass and all DLC for Titanfall free to celebrate its anniversary. After downloading it onto my Xbox (I don't care if I don't have the game, if it's free I'm going to get it) I decided I should see how much the game was. After picking up the game and installing it I jumped into my first game and while I wasn't blown away, I was really surprised at how much I enjoyed myself.
Titanfall offers a pretty standard set of matchmaking games including CTF (Capture The Flag), team death matches, and domination. The maps are varied and offer so many paths for movement it can get a little confusing. When not piloting a Titan your player moves quickly and can double jump onto ledges, run along walls, and even hop up on enemy titans to try and take them out. The movement is super smooth too, and after watching a friend play Advanced Warfare I realized it was like that but more fluid.

Titanfall gets a 7.8 out of 10.
