Holy crap! I bought it tonight after a terrible day, and boy! This is a fun game. I got demolished but I loved it! I actually was able to take down titans on foot and in a titan! I'm really impressed, and I'm enjoying the heck out of it!

EDIT: So now that I'm level 12, some more response. I still am completely in love with the game. I don't sit down and play for hours at a time, I just don't have time. But this is a game which I actually feel like I'm having a ton of fun, even if I'm getting killed repeatedly.
My FPS background: I've never been big into competitive multi-player FPSs. I did some when I got the first Modern Warfare. It was fun for a little bit, but I never felt like I could compete with the guys(kids?) who played for hours at a time. Halo was the same deal, people who are already really good tend to simply wipe the floor with you. So after a few matches it's back to Skyrim or LOTRO.
What makes TItanfall so different? I really think it's the drones. For a bad player like me, they make me feel like I'm doing something. I'm not just some other player who's going to get the snot beat out of me like in other games. I always have someone who I can actually hit and kill! It's very refreshing after my last multiplayer game! The movement and speed of the game really set it apart for me. Good luck being a stationary sniper, you have to move! I was playing the dino planet campaign mission again (I'm really good at hardpoints!), and I really enjoyed the zip lines, sudden drops, and all of the varieties of entrances and exits to places. I got someone as I was on the zip line, then drop kicking someone from a hole, and I just had the biggest, idiot grin of my face afterwords!
There are also the Titans themselves. You are always assured of getting at least one during a match, if not more if you kill some other folks. Being in a titan is pretty awesome! Stomping, missiles, ect. There are some problems with being in a titan, but it's still a ton of fun. I'm finally getting to a point where I can customize them which brings a new level if individual fun. I really like the Atlas. Just fast and strong enough! The homing missiles have been a fun change of pace as well.
Will Titanfall last? Will it take a large share away from CoD? Who knows? In order for it to remain fun, they are going to have to continue to offer more game modes (for free), and more maps (for a reasonable cost!). Some don't like Titanfall because it has a lot of similarities to COD. Some won't like it because it's too much of a departure from CoD. I see myself enjoying it for a while because each game is small amount of time invested for a lot of fun. I like trying out different play styles with my builds, and I really love it when I can kill a pilot (once or twice a game!).
For those that are enjoying it, I hope you continue to do so! I'm on the 360 version (which plays fine and looks good enough). My XBL is dionysusfiend. If you get me on a team, sorry if I suck =P
And may your titan fall on an enemy dropship. I managed that, and it was pretty cool!
