I would replace Uncharted 3 with Uncharted 2 Uncharted 2s multiplayer was much better, especialy in the pre 1.5 update days. The game was just much more balanced and unique then what Uncharted 3 turned into. Kickbacks, upgradable perks, weapon mods, powerplays, loadouts.............no thanks.
UC3 has a hardcore mode for that very reason you mentioned. Perks and powerplays are optional in online MP. Wouldn't be fair to fault UC3 for something that you aren't forced to use.
haha You would get such a laugh out of that if you said that on the ND forums Hardcore mode is NOTHING like Uncharted 2 (Classic Mode) Hardcore mode might be stripped down but loadouts are still in it and the game is just boring. Uncharted 2 might not of had a lot but it was still fun. Theres even a massive thead of the forums for people to support a classic mode, one of the MP designers on the forums actually spoke in the thread and said "Did Hardcore mode not do it for you guys"...people were like "Are you serious......erm......NO" . Apparently it's going to be added in one of the labs and then if it does well enough as a real playlist. If they wanted to please Uncharted 2 fans instead of their new COD audience then they should of just done a proper Classic Mode instead.
I can agree with you on the Uncharted 2 multiplayer having the advantage over 3. I preferred the story of Uncharted 3, but strictly multiplayer goes to 2 for me.
"Halo 2: Now while Reach, ODST, and Halo 3 are all better games..." Gotta disagree with that. At least for Reach, never played ODST, but I thought Halo 2 was way better than Reach. I have trouble getting into online multiplayer games, the only online shooters I've been able to really get into this gen was Killzone 2-3, bad company 2, and Halo 3. I'm bout to try out the Ghost Recon beta, hope that's pretty good.
Nice list, but I would have personally included GTA4 in there.
Here's hoping halo 4 lives up to 2...
its cool that uncharted 3's mp was included. matches are fun when your team is doing well but when you're stuck with 4 people getting more deaths than kills, no hope.
I think im in the minority that prefers Killzone 3's Multiplayer to Killzone 2's. And I found Blazblue much more fun than Street fighter IV. Also why no love for Battlefield 3/Bad company 2? A good list though
Yeah, many prefer Killzone 2 MP. For me, it was acceptable but the hype from KZ2 was too strong. I also like blazblue more but SF has brand recognition.
I much prefer KZ3s MP to KZ2. KZ2 controlled like the guy was drunk and it was just a massive rocket spam.
Super Street Fighter 4 online is already dead, I can't find any matches already. Capcom killed it an further divided the community with SSF4A. That's the problem with releasing too much DLC and games in a short period of time, the online community just dies except for the few hardcore people that have all the DLC
I'm so happy that SOCOM 2 got recognized. I spent years playing that game and nothing else. I do agree with Halo 2 as number one though. It set the standard for multiplayer connectivity and options. Heck - we're at 8 years and a console generation later and a lot of games STILL don't or can't do what Halo 2 did multiplayer-wise.
wow, Uncharted 2 multiplayer was ok, but WHUAT never was it better than Uncharted3's multiplayer...! what a joke guys Who cares if there are people on the forums that would laught at you? Uncharted 3 multi is waywayway ahead of number 2
In no particular order, my list is : Warhawk, MAG, any SOCOM (Confrontation and S4 included), BF3, LBP2, RDR, Borderlands, SSX, Demon's/Dark Souls, Skate 3.
