FFD: Battle of the blockbuster shooters

If you’re a first person shooter fan, it can be a confusing time right now – because there are so many good ones. Today sees the release of Titanfall 2, the second game from former Call of Duty developers as Respawn Entertainment. This time around, it comes to more platforms, adds a single player campaign and is pretty damned good!

If you prefer your digital warfare with a more historical bent, there’s the also great Battlefield 1 that’s been out for the past week or so. It brings the series to the great, miserable war – and adds in a compelling campaign that doesn’t seem as shoehorned in as the ones from the previous games. According to Matthew, it’s great.

“World War I is hard material to tackle, but DICE have managed to do it respectably enough. Battlefield 1’s campaign is memorable, and it’s multiplayer, brutal. The latter doesn’t necessarily provide a whole new experience, but a coat of paint from The Great War certainly makes the series feel nice and fresh again.”

And then, coming next week we have the stalwart, annualised Call of Duty. This time, it’s infinite Warfare as the whole thing heads off in to spacer. Featuring new, aerial warfare from within a piloted ship called the Jackal and bolstered by an 80’s-themed Zombie game, it could well be the freshest Call of Duty yet.

Which one though, appeals to you most? Which have you bought, which shall you be buying and which shall you ignore completely? Tell us!

    Not a single one of them. I may get BF1 somewhere along the line but not now. Would kill for more DOOM though. Also Overwatch is where my FPS MP shooter tastes lie.

      What normal South African can justify a thousand rand for a fucking game?

      These recent price increases have only increased my torrent list.

          Yeah no. lol.

          Honestly, if im in any 2 minds about a game i wont purchase it. Tired of being screwed. Tired of waisting money on trash.

          ME:A can suck my noodle
          Star Citizen can suck my noodle

          The next 65 BF and COD can suck my noodle.

          I stopped torrenting because i felt like i was robbing devs of a fair shot at making money. Now?

          LOL. SEED SEED SEED

            I backed SC so I got it regardless if it will be good.

            ME only slightly dissapointed me once. The series is the best Space RPG out there even though the went a little light on the RP at the end. I support games I believe in that are established.

            New IP never CoD never. BF … special.

            October 28, 2016 at 11:22

            Yeah the start is a bit slow and the series took a while to find its feet but wow is it great now.

            October 31, 2016 at 12:50

            yeah its not so much the story that felt slow or anything, it was just that animation style. I find that 3D stuff to be visually offensive. It would take some serious effort to get used to it.
