GamesRadar noted that the game’s slick and fast shooting combined with the massive Titans/parkour make this game awesome. However, they weren’t too thrilled with the lack of different game modes and pilot customization:

Titanfall blends familiar concepts with innovative ideas in remarkable ways, leading to a nearly nonstop supply of awesome moments. But for as fun as it is, you’ll likely find yourself wishing Respawn was more ambitious when it comes to game modes, since there’s a good chance you’ve captured enough flags for one lifetime.

GameSpot – 9/10

GameSpot’s review gave positive marks to the game’s maps and its fitting atmosphere. Their only knock on the game was it’s somewhat lackluster multiplayer campaign:

The overarching experience of playing Titanfall is one of rejuvenation and reinvigoration. The sprint speed, the arsenal, the game modes, and more are all firmly derived from some of the most successful online shooters of recent years. But by reinventing the way you move, Titanfall reinvents what it feels like to play a competitive shooter. The high-flying action intertwines beautifully with the brutish, tactical titan battles, creating battlefields that crackle with possibility. Titanfall is a leap forward for shooters, a game that combines the vibrant and new with the tried and true to create something special.

Polygon – 9/10

Titanfall ReviewTitanfall has nine months of hype behind it, but it's got a stale genre's worth of expectations to live up to. Arthur Gies reviews Titanfall for the Xbox One and PC.

Polygon applauded Titanfall’s stage changes and fast-moving gameplay. Their review noted that there’s some disappointment coming to those who are looking for some extensive pilot customization:

Titanfall is the rare game that feels like it came out on top of the few compromises Respawn has had to make. Sliding the spectacle and holy shit moments of an epic campaign among bold, fast multiplayer that steals unlikely elements, Respawn has made them shine like they belonged there all along. Titanfall may not mark the same kind of sea change that Modern Warfare started but the pieces are all there in a game that delivers on its potential as the next big thing.

Computer and Video Game’s review loved the game’s easy accessibility for newcomers and it’s simple controls. They felt that the campaign was as missed opportunity, though:

Thrillingly chaotic and expertly tuned,Titanfall is a fairly orthodox FPS elevated to greatness by dozens of intelligent design choices. One-note? Perhaps. But what a note.
