After trading Sekiro in for PSN credit, I decided to fire this up via EA Access on the One X. Oh boy does it look spectacular!! Though I have to admit I wasn't really feeling it for a while ... then I got to ...

Spoiler

... time travel! Genuinely brilliant. :D

Oh man this is good, the helmets popping off from headshots will never get old. Just did a couple of levels and took down the first boss. 

The movement is incredible and the gunplay is really meaty and satisfying. 

After the first one being online only I didn't take much notice of this, I think I just got the bargain of the year. 

 

Those disco spider things can do one though.

It’s the best FPS this generation for me both in terms of campaign, MP and I don’t see anything beating it until TF3.

 

I’m waiting for it to drop in price on PSN and then will pick it up digital and get right back into it.

 

And Arnie can no longer claim to having the best use of the phrase “Trust me!”

 

BT :wub:

I finished the campaign the other day and it was a blast from start to finish and I died a lot, which will probably keep me out of the multiplayer as I'd get slaughtered. 

Spoiler

 

I loved the time travel level, the way it popped in and out at first then you got control was amazing and some genuinely good puzzles to make your way through the level. 

 

I think I actually preferred the pilot bits to the ones in your Titan, they were both cool but I love the movement as a Pilot but I loved the section near the end where you were totally badass stomping round in a big BT killing machine. 

 

Two stand out bits that I found really hard were the simulation where you have two of the big robot things after you, I died lots there. The other was the fight with Viper, he was the only Titan that gave me much trouble. 

 

I want the Smart Pistol for the entire game, that gun is absolutely awesome. 

 

The disco spiders can still do one though. 

 

 

All in all for the campaign

 

Awesome/10

I also bought this for around 3 quid for the single player and I thought it was 'just' good really. Some nice set pieces and fluid movement but not much else particularly stood out about it for me. In particular, the villains were a proper load of non-entities and a lot of the locations were really boring industrial affairs and warehouses.

 

Probably a victim of the hype that had built up around it. Enjoyable enough but nothing much that will stay with me.

I've started this again after buying it on PC, and it's just wonderful, isn't it? There can't be many shooters with more satisfying combat. Picking off the enemy soldiers with a single bullet to the head and the noise that follows (along with the spurt of blood and a flying helmet) will never get old. And the game just throws so much new stuff at you. Bloody ace it is.

92000 on the PS4 tonight.

 

question is; why does it take one of the best games ever to be free, before people will play it? And also, what other junk have they been playing for the last 3 years to avoid this, lol

Call of Duty 

 

TF2 ha no easy introduction on the multiplayer, it can be brutal going in solo and hoping to pick up a few points, learning along the way. Hopefully more people will persevere this time around.

It’s really good. Criminally overlooked. 

 

 

Best FPS of the generation by a long stretch!

 

I mostly buy FPS games exclusively for the MP but with the SP campaign here is just incredible - with more ideas, and more entertainment,  in any given level than every COD combined. The MP was equally magnificent and  TF2 became my go to FPS for a good two years. 

 

I now have a hankering to play this again so here's hoping the PC servers are still modestly populated.

Yes it can be tough at the start, but once you get a few load outs that work for you, it’s exceptional. Call of duty doesn’t come close.

Yesterday, I played a few hours of halo reach campaign for the first time and this morning a few hours of the campaign on this. I don't see how I can back to halo reach now.

 

I was super cynical about the mechs, as I usually despise them in almost every game. In this, they at least make the usage intermittent and make sense, story-wise. I'm playing on regular difficulty which also means that I don't have to think too hard about how to pliot a mech. Most of the mech usage is also against other mechs which avoids those massively boring sections in games of just ploughing through hundreds of grunts in an over-powered mech/vehicle.

TF1 was xbox and PC exclusive I think? Perhaps that had a huge hit against this? 

Time to jump back in though with those player numbers but the single player campaign in this is amazing.

I have started this too, possibly a mistake having just made a start on Bloodborne last week.

 

Given all the talk above about dead servers and difficulty finding games in MP until recently, I started with the multiplayer mode. Basically to make sure I got all the online trophies while I still could.

 

Had a lot of fun, but no idea what was going on. At all. I assume it's the campaign mode that teaches you how to play, but I'm worried that by the time I've finished that the MP will be deserted again.

 

Are there any written guides about that could give me a crash course? 

 

One thing I'm happy about - the game doesn't appear to track your deaths or KDR. That's one of the reasons I don't play a lot of FPS games (and especially not online) as I don't like the constant reminder of how shit I am at them.

Definitely start with the campaign because a) it teaches you all the concepts, controls and features of the game, b) it's quite short (maybe 5 or 6 hours) and can be completed within a couple of casual evenings and c) it's absolutely fucking brilliant and the best FPS campaign of this generation.

 

As someone said earlier in the thread, jumping straight into multiplayer is going to be brutal but once you have a grounding in the game via the campaign then you should find it a little easier to manage. There's also the Frontier Defense 4-player co-op mode which will allow you get some practice in and play around with the different Titans without too much pressure.

 

The fact that it was on PS Plus recently has given it a huge second wind and evidently enabled many people to realise just how amazing it is, so I think the servers will have a pretty healthy population for a good while yet. It's really heartening to see it alive again.

You can beat the campaign in two or three evenings, and it teaches you everything.  It's also absolutely brilliant, as pineholestar has said.  Half Life 2 level of brilliance.  Get playing it!

Nah, people are just fickle/stupid and didn't play it because titans/wallrunning/future setting/no 'boots on the ground'/no kill-streaks/no hiding in corners.

 

Stupid gamers.
