Let's hope , it will be good ..

SP games can actually have a great MP .. just like U2
and God of war (the beta was amazing)

btw the MP is being developed by Eidos Montrea.

Im afraid they are just gonna shoehorn it in. The fact that it is announced 1-2 months before release is troubling to say the least, i hope i am wrong on this.

Why do you guys react like that?

It's only natural at this point.
Although I'm inclined to wait and see the results, I must admit these MP announcements are getting tiresome at this point. There's dozens of examples where MP has felt forced in b/c the suits fly in saying "Marketers says MP is needed!"

Bioshock 2, Dead Space 2, Yager's complaints about its MP in Spec Ops, and many more games have been harmed because of this grotesque industry's way of thinking.

I'll still wait until Tomb Raider is out to see/hear the final verdict.

Multi-player games can be unique, it just needs the will and the talent of the developer.
Look how Uncharted games turned out, pretty amazing, right.

How exactly did Dead Space 2 suffer because of multiplayer? The single player was great so what's the issue?
coolbeans  +   664d ago
@Nicaragua
The term 'harmed' isn't necessarily funneled solely to the game's quality. In Dead Space 2's case, the harm MP did against it was from the gamer's outlook of the title, grieving about the mode because it serves as a microcosm for our industry's thinking today.

It also makes gamers wonder what, if any, resources were moved away from SP to MP. It's still regarded as a great SP, but could it have been a masterpiece if MP was never thought of during development?

Of course it will. Just slap MP on everything!

ABSOLUTELY 100% NOTHING WRONG WITH MP IF ITS GOOD AND DOESN'T HAMPER SP.

And guess what? You won't know until reviews and real players get the game. latter being far more useful than reviwers with agendas....so get over yourselves.

Another sad day for gaming. Pre order cancelled.

Oh for the love of god...it worked in Uncharted 2 because of the type of genre Uncharted was, an action adventure game but Tomb Raider is supposed to be about survival. How the hell will that work

If it's like Uncharted 2s with just two boosters and whatever you find on the map then fair enough because the new features in U3 spoilt the game

Sadly this is the future of gaming, I think niche online where the players totally abandon the game within a month is becoming the norm.

I wasn't really upset with the ME3, UC2 or Assassins Creed online, but I didn't put the time into those games online like I did with games like Battlefield, COD and Halo. They just aren't built for lasting communities in my opinion.

I think these companies are just trying to appeal to the people who might only buy a game with an online component.I know some people who will only buy a game with some online aspect. This wont stop me from buying the game because I think it looks awesome, plus nobody is forcing anyone to play the online. Again I believe this is just a case of complaining for the sake of complaining.

I really do not give a crap about the unnecessary multiplayer. I already have multiplayer games that keep me quite occupied, what i need are some quality singleplayer games
