View Full Version : How is multiplayer?

09-12-2009, 05:50 PM
I played the demo (PS3) and I liked the game but I am still undecided. I only really buy a game for multiplayer and wanted to know how it is and what are your thoughts. I've gotten burned in a lot of games and really want to avoid spending money on a game with really bad multiplayer (worms, gta4, civilization)

from what I read the first day or two was bad but most console multiplayer games usually are.

do a lot (or enough) people play on PSN?

is it difficult (time consuming) to find a game?

is it stable enough?

what mode do most people play? (arcade sim or realistic)

are there ranks, levels or leaderboards for this game?

Thank you

I play on the 360.

It can be hard to find a game, there seems to not be many people playing this, but us forum users all play together so there are normally 20 or so people in my friends list at any point online and we all invite each other into games. So if you do buy it come and post your gamertag/PSN ID to join in the action.

I play realistic and it LOADS of fun, we play all the modes but team battle seems to be the most popular.

We don't appear to have any problems online other than latency issues when there are 12 or more in a server, the planes warp about all over the place, people explode for no particular reason but other than that no one has ever had their console freeze or crash during an online game. So we keep our room numbers to 12 or below.

Multiplayer is tons of fun. Probably the best part of the game, if you can actually find a room to play in. :mad:

When you eventually get a game, it's awesome. Provided the other players are good sports
