My first and only experience with multiplayer-only online shooters was a few years back when I reviewed Battlefield 2142, a game that features the exact same premise and publisher as Titanfall. Judging it against its most similar competition, Titanfall is a far better game than B:2142, but leaving it there would be to damn the game with faint praise.

WTF The samurai helmets seem like they're pushing the themed-gang motif a little too far.

WTF I hated that monster until I was killing him - where are these tears coming from?
