OXCGN looks at Bots in multiplayer and how current multiplayer without them is lacking. Includes poll of your opinion:
"There I was- in the middle of the desert in the presumed blistering heat with my rifle, waiting nervously for any sign of an enemy when, suddenly, one jumps out of the sand dune and shoots me in the head.
I was playing Far Cry 2 online with a group of people I didn't know, and despite having just been taken out, was having fun.
But it just wasn't the same as when I played local split-screen multiplayer with my friends and family at home- especially with extra game AI-controlled bots."
