Among the best first-person shooter games, Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2 are the strongest contenders. All of the titles came from massive publishers. All of the franchise where the game titles are based on are tried and tested. So which FPS should you choose? We will try and help you decide with a little bit of review on the pros and cons of having each one. Ready? Here we go.
At a glance, EA DICE's Battlefield 1 is a breath of fresh air with a World War I theme. The classic World War I setting is without a doubt rarely seen among AAA video games. Visually, this game is breathtaking. The sense of chaos during the gameplay looks so real it's eerie. The large scale battles are also different. In short, it's a fun and exciting game to play. Simulating the WWI is pretty easy with the lot of biplanes, tanks and even zeppelins and is a far cry to more modern shooters that dominates today's market.
But just because Battlefield 1 is set during World War I means that it lacks an impressive technology. Not only is the game visually impressive, it comes with a Frostbite engine too to support objects, terrains and buildings destruction for a more realistic feel. The tactical gameplay also puts teamwork at its best and emphasizes the importance of communication just like with actual soldiers.
Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare
Just like with Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare is available on PC, PS4 and Xbox One. It has a later release though on Nov. 4. One of the selling points of this title is the Co-Op Zombies mode, which is unlike any other first-person shooter games. The unique gameplay and storyline are a welcome change for fans. The epic campaign of Infinite Warfare spanning the Earth's surface to the sub-orbit in space is also memorable. It's not just flashy but Infinity Ward made sure that its gameplay is competitive enough by adding Modern Warfare Remasted into the game as a bonus.
Among the three titles, Call of Duty happens to have the largest community of gamers annually. The co-op feature is something useful if you are not likely to always play multiplayer. Besides, it's one feature that is unique to Infinite Warfare in comparison to the two other titles we have here. The eSports presence where you can improve your gameplay between sessions is a plus, too.
Titanfall 2 is another title from EA DICE. As a sequel, this one is considered successful given the A.I. opponents that provide players chances to gain momentum when battling against other players. The A.I. component of Titanfall 2 also helps players take it easy on multiplayer matches. Compared to the other two titles, Titanfall 2 is packed with action. You can do wall-running, fast-paced movements, grapple hooks, hover or double jump. It's perfect if you are more into a shooter game that has plenty of acrobatics.
Titanfall 2 feels and looks similar to Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare in terms of gameplay. But Titanfall 2 still manages to feel different with its Titan system. Explosions are fantastic. Game climaxes are often tremendous moments and everything else in the game is entertaining for most gamers even if they are not playing into the high ranks.
All these titles - Battlefield 1, Call of Duty: Infinite Warfare and Titanfall 2 - are fantastic. Choosing can become difficult unless you set the standards for the gameplay that you want to have. Want a smooth frame experience? Call of Duty or Titanfall 2 would be best to choose. Infinite Warfare is already a complete package with the bonus copy of Modern Warfare Remastered. Titanfall 2, on the other hand, is thrilling since you get to pilot Titans and it's something different from just the typical shooter games you know right now.
If you want a game that would stick best to your PC, Battlefield 1 would be the title for you. The World War I setting is a nice change of story and settings and the gameplay is optimized to fit the latest PC hardware, thanks to the upgraded Frostbite engine that comes with it. Battlefield 1 is also best for those who enjoy tactical gameplay with a team since Call of Duty and Titanfall 2 are more catered to fans of the single-player campagin. For a balanced game that moves between the modern shooter game with a single-player and multiplayer gameplay, Titanfall 2 is the title to get.
