Titanfall 2 is a masterpiece, a sublime blend of speed, fury, and mech buddy feel-good vibes. Unfortunately, many people are not aware of this, because when the stompy shooter first came out, it flew uncharacteristically under the radar for something involving giant robots. Now it’s getting a second chance on Steam.

While a dedicated community has kept Titanfall 2's head above water for the past several years—something that developer Respawn, which has since moved on to Apex Legends and Jedi: Fallen Order, hasn’t been so keen to do—an influx of Steam players recently reinvigorated its multiplayer scene. These players flocked to the game to see what all the fuss was about when it launched on Valve’s ubiquitous platform last month, and if reviews are any indication, they haven’t been disappointed. Steam users love Titanfall 2 for its tight campaign and blistering multiplayer, not to mention the passionate community surrounding it. They also love BT, because they are not, to my knowledge, heartless psychopaths.

That’s what happens to a sequel when the original game is A) strictly multi-player B) and exclusive to a console*† C) in 2014. And D) the console in question is a sinking ship from the word go.

Oh, and then E) the publisher of said sequel allows the game to release amidst some of the stiffest competition imaginable, with the bulk of it coming from one of their own IPs.

That said, Titanfall 2 did always look neat. If I hadn’t cooled so much on first-person shooters this gen, I’d’ve definitely checked it out by now.

* For the nerds who will breathlessly rush in to correct me, I’m aware of the original Titanfall’s release on Windows. However, the game was positioned and marketed primarily as a console exclusive and one of the Xbox One’s marquee titles. Neither of which did it any favors.

† Shut up, nerds.
