TeamXbox: The Chronicles of Riddick: Assault on Dark Athena Multiplayer Hands-on

TeamXbox writes: "In the media we've been saying it for years: multiplayer should be as expected from every title as much as an options menu.

that was the worst article i ever read Spelling wise. It seemed more of a blog but seemed professional enough..

Kinda bummed out that the deathmatch has only 8 player cap. they should have done 16 there. I mean COD4 has 16 player.. and they can limit the players on the PITCH BLACK which seems pretty sweet. Hate to be the noob controlling Riddick.. but once you get good it would be awsome. I know in L4D being tank at first is easy to die even with uber health but then when you get good you can take 2 or 3 survivors out easily but stuff does happen. Getting lit on fire sucks :-(
