Generally, when games come to Steam after exclusive stints on other storefronts, it’s a cause for celebration. In the case of Titanfall, however, the opposite was largely true. Despite being very well regarded—our 86% review from 2014 called it “the most exciting multiplayer shooter in recent years”—user reviews on Steam are “mixed,” and “very negative” over the past 30 days.

The problem is a lack of functional servers: The original Titanfall is multiplayer only, and without servers the game is effectively unplayable. The core issue, as broken down in this Reddit megathread, is that Titanfall suffers from numerous unpatched vulnerabilities that can be used to crash or overload servers and disconnect players.
