Nope, but multiplayer's nice all the same.

no. it takes space and (or) time and effort which all could be focused on the single player.

NOT every game should have multiplayer goddamitt!!!
I've bet the mp on mass effect 3 will be played for a little while and then turns into ghost city after one month of launch.

I know sp games succeeded in having a fun MP like uncharted 2 but the odds that this may suck is very big.

The Co-op mode is being developed by the partner studio Bioware Montreal, rather than Edmonton who work on the main SP, therefore there isn't really any possible way that the MP can negatively affect the SP, the SP would be identical whether the MP were there or not, so that argument is completely flawed.

The Mass Effect universe is built for co-op IMO. Besides, when you do the single player missions, you have three team mates with you already, so whats the difference?


People tought Uncharted did not need multiplayer but look at how that turned out which was amazing. Multiplayer is always a nice part of any game. I wont be suprised if God of war 4(We all know they will be part 4 because big games just dont end even when devs says 3 will be the last)..Any way i wont be suprised if God of war 4 has multiplayer.

i dont care about the multiplayer, i only care about the story and how it ends.

Well I will wait until it has been released to pass my judgement.

What I would say at this point, is that Co-op was added to try and increase sales. If sales increase in a major way, then from Bioware and EA's perspective, it was needed. As a gamer and fan of the series, if it feels like content is missing to accommodate

Co-op could be cool, other than that not sure.

Tieing up the story is all need for my £35 though anything else is a bonus.

No it doesn't need Multiplayer, but then again almost 40% of the games on the market do not need Multiplayer but haven it anyway.

Anyway it's a + which is a good thing.
