Titanfall 2: One of the Best SciFi Games for 17+

My older brother introduced me to this game a few months ago. I bought it on my ps4 and finished the campaign yesterday. It's literally one of the best games I've ever played! The campaign has challanges and requires some thinking. The storyline is really good! I would definitely replay the campaign again. If you're a beginner at Titanfall 2, I would recommend you start with easy mode. Normal mode can get really difficult. Violence: Blood sprays out of characters when hit. For enemies, there are humans and different types of robots. Depending on the gun you're using, the human enemies can explode, which shows a lot of blood and gore. The gore isn't overly bad. To describe it, basically the human explodes, blood sprays everywhere, and if you look, you can see a few body parts on the ground. But it's just really a brain, heart, those things and it disappears quickly. You cannot turn off the gore. I'm sure there's games that have more gore in it than this one. There are explosions, fires, the usual things one would see in a shooter game. I still wouldn't recommend this game to anyone under 17. Edit: Gore also will show when you kill human enemies with you Titan. Language: Some uses of hell and damn. Two uses of ass and one use of shit. Nothing extreme. Edit: At the beginning of the game, there is one use of son of a b!tch and one use of [email protected] Easy to play/use: It does require some thinking and sometimes some quick thinking. It's not hard to navigate. The only problem I have with it is that it won't tell you where there's more ammo, you have to find it yourself. Sexual themes: None Drinking, drugs, and smoking: None I definitely recommend this first person SciFi shooter to those who love a challenge. I definitely recommend the campaign, it has an amazing story! However, in mg opinion, this isn't a game to be played by those under 17. Hope this review helped! To read what the story is about, I would read Common Sense Media's description on it.

Definitely not as bad as they think

I’m 14, and I’ve played a TON of online and beat the campaign The violence is around something like fortnite or apex (apex is in the same universe), and the gore isn’t really noticeable because you are moving around so fast. Swearing in the campaign is mostly hell, some s words. Overall, the campaign is definitely worth playing for the emotional impact as well. I will issue a warning for hackers in multiplayer though, so fights aren’t always fair online.

This title has:

Great messages
Great role models
Too much violence
Too much swearing
