The giant robots in Titanfall drop with authority.

Watching these titans come in from the heavens never gets old. They certainly make a statement upon impact, but what really sells it for me is the cracking sound in the atmosphere the second before they land. Whether boarding a behemoth or racking up kill counts on foot, Titanfall is as good as they come. As such, it's the first really compelling reason to pick up an Xbox One.

This Daily Dot-exclusive supercut was culled from video I recorded at a recent two-day, 16-hour Titanfall review event, hosted by developer Respawn Entertainment and publisher Electronic Arts. If you’ve played the beta, you got a solid sample of what to look forward to when the game ships March 11. But our video includes some things that the beta doesn't, including teases of Titanfall’s other modes and environments, not the least of which includes the story-driven campaign multiplayer.
