Titanfall Reviews

Titanfall makes landfall in North America tomorrow and other territories later in the week, and the first reviews are appearing for Respawn's mech shooter. The game won't have a score on Metacritic until it's released, but in the meantime reviews have appeared on CVG, EGMNOW, GamesBeat, GameSpot, GamesRadar, gamesTM, Joystiq, NowGamer, PC Gamer, Polygon, and VideoGamer.com.

Where the hell did "and people don't tend to click through to reviews without scores." come from?

That's a weird way to think imho.

What's the main way people get to reviews these days?
Metacritic.

What won't list your review without a number it can attach?
Metacritic.

The other way people tend to get to reviews is the list of reviews on a site, and even then they tend to click through and read outliers.
I don't have any quotes for it, but ask any one working at one of the review sites and they'll tell you that, when they put a review up without a quantifiable score, the click throughs are reduced. There's a reason Endgadget, which got rid of numbers in an attempt to stop people from directly comparing and fighting hundreths of a point, has brought them back.

I really don't see what you guys are all butthurt about. Thousands of people got to play the Beta on the public servers and it was fun

While ya'll are sitting here being crotchety as fuck for no good reason I'm going to enjoy the best fast paced FPS I've played (in BETA) in years. If the other 13 maps are as fun as the 2 in beta where then this game is worth what I paid for it.

I think a lot of you have forgotten that games are about fun. Not bashing a game because of who developed it or published it because some guys reviewed it on private servers. Get over it. So disappointing to read any of the comment threads on here anymore.

So this will be the first game not filled with hax, etc.? Are their private servers? Custom maps? etc.? If not then you can pan it already as another COD clone.

The few reviews I read all mentioned that, while Microsoft claimed it was the retail servers, they played it in a controlled environment and reserve the right to change the score.

I think this is fine. I mean, people want a review before a game comes out, so it's a necessity, and people don't tend to click through to reviews without scores.

I don't think this is a huge deal. People want reviews. Sites need pageviews. Nothing overly dishonest going on here so long as, like Polygon, they begin with a nice disclaimer that basically signals to take the review with a bit of a grain of salt.

Anyone who is putting up a final review with a score for a multiplayer game before the public is able to access the servers should be ashamed. It's as if they learned nothing from SimCity and Battlefield 4. Controlled review environments do not represent the final environment. Giant Bomb has put a review up but without a score and have reserved the right to alter it accordingly after the public release before locking it as final. Anyone who has done otherwise shouldn't be trusted.

Well, just a quick look at the sites listed here tell you everything there is to know about the review quality.... reviewing a MP game before full release is a folly anyway, and it's extra bullshit to give it a score when you can't do proper MP games to assert the situation to begin with.

Except PC Gamer, which does not list a score. Which is the only valid way to review a MP only game before release.

I would have to mostly agree. I thought the tutorial was well done but the game play from the tutorial alone turned me off to it. I believe though that this game should not have a final score prior to release...
