Jeff Lemire is a fantastic writer with his works on Animal Man, Justice League Dark, Trillium, etc. I have not been let down with any of the issues in this volume and they lead up to something more exciting for Green Arrow. I strongly recommend this to not only Green Arrow fans, but anyone that is interested in comics. Jeff Lemire shows us with Green Arrow what a truly great comic book can be.

Andrea Sorrentino's art = AMAZING. Just read it yourself and you can see why.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid and Fun Game, but Need More Contents, March 14, 2014
This review is from: Titanfall - Xbox One (Video Game)
Titanfall is an exciting game to play. It innovates the stale FPS genre by adding parkour and Titans to the gameplay. For most of us, we spent hours on playing Call of Duty and every year, it's basically the same game( with eye-popping problems like a terrible spawning, lag compensation,etc).

Pros: Game Mechanic is exciting and fun with the use of double jumping and wallrunning, Titans surprisingly work well with the game, Map Selections are solid, spawn trapping is not issue(personal experience), burn cards are interesting ways to use "perks", everything just feels balance,

With Titanfall, it adds just a little to FPS formula, but it feels fresh. Wallrunning is so much fun. The entire map is your playground. Run and jump to wherever you wants to go. You would think adding Titans to the mix might not work, but it does. The Titans mesh well with the pilots(human players) and while they can caused damages, a team of pilots can easily overwhelmed a Titan. There are 15 maps that are, for the most part, fun to play. Maps are diverse in setting. One moment you're playing in the desert, the next you are at a tropical setting. It's nice to play on a map where it is not set in a poor third-world town or a war-torn city. Maps are big, but it's not a problem because of the ways pilots are constantly moving. If you play the game like it's meant to be play, you will always find yourself in action.

I also like the "Burn Cards". They are basically like the equivalent to the Call of Duty's perks system. You can select three burn cards to use during game, but you can only use them one at a time and if you use one and die, then that burn card expires. I like the fact you have to think about when it is the right time to use them. You can be effective player with the burn cards if you use them in the right situation.

Cons: Campaign mode is weak, More contents would be nice

Titanfall is set in an interesting universe. It sucks that Respawn didn't do more to elaborate or expand on what is going on with the IMC and Militia. Campaign is basically like 18 games of Attrition and Hardpoint. The story is told through conversations that are going on your HUD when you're playing in game, but since you're so focus on killing other players or capturing a hardpoint, you won't be paying attention. And if you do pay attention, some lines that characters are lame and cheesy at times. I don't mind the campaign being only online, but the campaign that Titanfall has feels like it was just thrown in there last minute and seems like there was no work put in it.

Titanfall lacks contents in game modes and custom loadouts. There are currently at the time of this review, only 5 game modes. There are not that many weapons and equipment to unlock.

My personal take...

I like the game. It is refreshing to play a game like Titanfall. I'm so drained from playing Call of Duty. Titanfall gets me excited to see where it goes with the FPS genre. I don't mind the lack of game modes and weapons because when I play a FPS game, I only use a few loadouts(like with CoD Ghosts for example, I only use my Remington and Ak-12 loadouts. I don't even look at other guns) and one or two game modes( Going back to Ghosts example, I only play Kill Confirmed for the most part).

There are some people complaining about campaign and I get that. I'm one of the few people that actually enjoying playing campaign. I am disappointed Titanfall campaign because it could be so much better if Respawn puts more time to it. Having said that, majority of people usually skip the campaign and jump to the multiplayer. For the casual gaming audience, it's not really a problem.

Respawn did say that they will be adding more stuff to the game through free DLCs. Be sure to look out for that.

This is Respawn's first game, so of course it won't be perfect. Having said that, they did a good job with the important parts such as gameplay mechanic, balancing the game, and most importantly, making the game fun to play. It may lack some sustances, compare to other established shooters, but don't let that draw you away from a game like this.

I would recommend this game to any fans of FPS games and people that are looking for something different.

it is useful to a certain extent, but the guide could be better. I still like it and it does look nice. If you're a big fan of the series it is nice to have, but you don't need it.
