Nightmare Mode takes a long look at Mass Effect 3's multiplayer demo, and comes away very, very impressed with how much it doesn't disappoint. In fact, they're willing to say it was by far the standout portion of the whole demo.
unfortunately yes...it is the only saving grace it has as of right now. That demo was atrocious in every single way and an insult to pc gamers with low res textures, atrocious FOV and many more flaws such as bad animations and bad graphics that are really showing the engines age. MP was a lot of fun, it is done right with the right balance and when you play with friends it can get tense and teamwork and communication are needed. Action mode is hilarious btw, and rpg mode is a slap to the face to the fans of the first one.
From what I've played from it so far... Hell. Yes. I have to be honest, I missed out on the others in the series but this demo has definitely convinced me into buying this game day one.
The first two were amazing without MP its just a free extra that I cannot wait to play with friends.
i loved the singleplayer demo. cant wait to beat the game on insanity, then again 2 more times at least. the multiplayer is fun but all it going to do for me is make a 97/100 game a 98/100.
Saving grace? I think the term you are looking for is icing on the cake.
Ok one, it doesnt need a "saving grace" and two, it doesnt need a damn multiplayer, its really pissing me off how every game is getting some form of multiplayer tacked on.
Mass Effect has been a single player franchise up until this point. Mass Effect does not need multiplayer, but as someone said above, its the icing on the cake. Something extra on top of the sweet cake that is Mass Effect.
The multiplayer wasn't even "all that". The single player is where the focus is.
I enjoyed the multiplayer. The campaign will always be more important though. The demo had no effect over anything because it was just a DEMO. I love reading these ridiculous comments about how there were no decisions in the demo. The demo consisted of split-up segments and had no stats from your character or really any development for a new character. It was a demo to get newbies into the series to see what its all about. It wasn't for the gamer who has been playing ME1 and ME2.
