Best Multiplayer Game of 2012

MediaStinger: "2012 was a big year for multiplayer gaming with titles offering a multitude of different ways to get your multiplayer fix. While both Halo and Call of Duty returned this year with very strong multiplayer experiences that involved nice new improvements to help change up gameplay a tad, both still played it a bit too safe in order to not upset hardcore fans and didn’t do anything to help take multiplayer gaming to the next level."

Starhawk, Warhawk are my 2 best online experiences on the ps3 so far.

Did you play MAG? WarHawk and MAG are the best by far, I my opinion. I felt like the dumb down StarHawk from WarHawk, and no official servers didn't help.

I would have gotten MAG if it had splitscreen, that was the only thing holding it back for me. Did enjoy my time with the beta though.

Warhawk is my favourite multiplayer game this gen.

Too bad they didn't enjoy a lot of success and have now relegated themselves to iOS games.

Starhawk is definitely the best multi player game of 2012 hands down.

Starhawk's multiplayer was definitely underrated when it came to reviews. I think people weighed it in on the so-so campaign as if it was really meant to be something to stand next to most quality single player campaigns, when what it was was a glorified tutorial with cool-looking scenes to aid in multiplayer and add value to a retail game. The multiplayer alone is one of the most fun and addicting games I've played in a long time. For the life of me, cannot understand why more people didn't see its appeal. Shame about LightBox Interactive too - talented, passionate and generous bunch.

I think PlanetSide 2 has the best multiplayer though, I like to appreciate each game for what it brings.

I didn't like it. The servers would show an excellent connection... For a round hosted in Asia. I'm in New Zealand, so it ended up being laggy. That and infantry combat was not an option, since the vehicles obliterated them. The beta didn't have tanks, and the hawks were easier to kill, which made infantry combat fun. But now you either go in a vehicle or you die. Which is realistic, but not as good IMO.

Guild Wars 2 for best multiplayer.

Starhawk is good but I have enjoyed Uncharted 3's Multi-Player ALOT more!

I prefer Co-op Adventure or Arena over Competitive(It's VERY,VERY Competitve Online!). Most people hate the kickbacks, power plays and sprinting that they added, but I found it fast paced and always a challenge to hang with the Legacys.

I still visit it regularly and play split screen offline alot too.
