I hate, and I mean absolutely hate MP only games. And I don't buy that "don't knock it before you try it" crap. Reason is because people suck. There's always too many jack asses out to ruin the game. And once it's dead, it's dead. MP only is a waste of time and resources. And the game mechanics are not too complex for SP, that's bs. It is more than possible.
really been enjoying its fresh, has good shooting, a great progression system, and its always easy to find where the action is.
Only thing bad about MP games is after a few months you need to have other people still wanting to play it just so you can play it too.
Yah, yah, yah, just another game without SP as well! I for one won't be giving them a dime of my money, tho I do hope you guy's who like the game do indeed enjoy this MP only game! Happy gaming!
Such a 5th Cell way of approaching cover-mechanics: "No dude it's ALL cover". Then Hybrid 2 comes out and lets you win every match by typing "lasso" and "helicopter".
@cerberus1058 man, i so feel the same way. whatever happened to an engrossing story that sucks you right in. a far superior experience can always be had to me by playing SP games. MP used to be fun when the only way to play someone else was to do split screen, in the same room. that was fun because your friends were right there. nowadays with the internet connectivity means any little punk ass twerp can ruin your game/experience. all the best games (and the reviews from gamespot share the same opinion) have been single player. ie. mass effect, dragon age, dark souls, demons souls supermario sunshine, metal gear. i could go on and on. I want my single player experience back! down with MP only games!
@BrunoBRS Creeper Head Dance Party!
@McGuirex3 All games don't need SP. This game is great as MP only and makes sense that it is.
@McGuirex3 the game mechanic would be too complicated for a SP game, it'd be a scripted nightmare given the geometric complexity. I suggest trying it before knocking it.
@shadow_Metroid give the trial a go
@adam1808 i was tempted to like your comment as it made me laugh, but i get the feeling your attempting to just knock a game you haven't tried? correct me if im wrong
@Blue_Majik you could always play the trial first ;)
I'm not sure about the (need) part but at the end of the day I do understand it's All about the bottom-line i.e. $ But why wouldn't the dev. wont to reach aka sell to both the SP & MP gamer! PLEASE don't get me wrong I'm Not at all, anti MP/games. I've been gaming (more so PC back then) since the med to late 90's and there was time when games were Only SP (of course because the internet not being there yet, or at it's infancy but then the dev's would make a SP games (and demos I might add) with MP added! Now more so with the like of FPS and (I dont' even need to mention the game series) where the they'll make a game that for the most part caters to the MP, and just throw in 3 to 4 hr. SP as a second thought maybe to justify the $60+ for the game! Well anyway sorry for going on and on. Happy gaming all just the same!
I don't know that I was knocking it! Another thing about the (MP only) games is on XBL most of time if not alway's, one Must have XBL-(GOLD)!!! I mean why pay for gold when I'm not a MP gamer, that wouldnt' make much sense, for me that is. I really hate that part if anything about XBL, but still love my XB360, & my other consoles for that matter all about the same! Oh btw it makes sense what you said about the mechanic part of the development thanks! Happy gaming bro/all!!!!
@LeMeAtOm I played the beta and I like the game despite a few balance issues, it was just an attempt at humour.
@McGuirex3 you raise an interesting point there, do microsoft advertise MP games on Live to silver members as well, im not sure what silver members can see advertising wise, but its possible they could use it as a bit of a carrot. It'd be unfair to those who are SP gamers only, but i'd wager there arent many SP only gamers left, trends alone would seem to indicate this unfortunately. Happy gaming to you too! im sure theres a lot more on offer for you, can you still DL dust? thats a great SP game :)
