Hopefully they will have a normal lobby with matchmaking instead of the freeroaming system they had in Red Dead Redemption.

Blame the people which want multiplayer in every goddamn game. I'm sick hearing this shit - ''No mp/co-op, no buy''.

Why? Max Payne has always been a ballsy, high intensity action game. It should make the transition to multiplayer pretty easily, I think.

RDR and GTA's MP had the novelty of an open world at least, not sure how well this is going to fair tbh. probably end up as a throwaway experience. no staying power... but the single player looks decent so who cares.

Sure, but GTA has awful, awful controls (hey, I actually like GTA4 a lot, but lets be honest). The most fun I ever had with GTA4's MP was just messing around in the sandbox with people. If they nail the action game aspect of this game I think it holds more promise for MP than those games did.

You guys are forgetting one important thing which is Bullet Time.

How will Bullet Time be implemented in Multiplayer. I still don't think it's possible.

Hope it plays like FEAR Combat, they got the slow mo, destruction stuff right.

GTA4's MP on PC was pretty good though

Expect it to be like Stranglehold's MP i.e. a mess.

here is a solution: don't play the multiplayer.

I'm not sure why people are so quick to write it off. This game looks a helluva lot better than Stranglehold, and I have no reason to suspect that the MP won't be better too.

Every game does not need MP, but it sorta fits here.

Is it really any worse than the masses demanding SP in every game? See: Unreal Tournament 3; Battlefield 3, etc.

About the game


What's up?
  • asdfg
    asdfg Doom or any fast paced fps must play pretty terrible with a gamepad. (2 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane @KORNdog: Thanks for that. him liking the game despite: "It even has its own version of Ubisoft’s weary “radio tower” mapping system that has become something of an industry joke." is VERY good news (14 minutes ago)
  • Moonwalker
    Moonwalker @MrWhite: Same here. After the many positive comments on NeoGAF and other forums I was expecting more. The gunplay and the sounds of it don't do it at all for me. Maybe just too fast paced for me. (24 minutes ago)
  • MrWhite
    MrWhite Yeah, wasn't a big fan of the new Doom myself. Bit of a let down. (27 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: [url] also a good read. given this is someone who didn't review far cry 4 well (a game horizon is oft compared to) (28 minutes ago)
  • alimokrane
    alimokrane Another good review to *READ*: [url] (31 minutes ago)
  • KORNdog
    KORNdog @alimokrane: yeah, i always worry when there is a late embargo. but even then they can turn out well critically (doom) even though i'd probably give that game a 6-7 myself. (32 minutes ago)
