No multiplayer period is a good and wise decision if you ask me.
In a game where the story plays a huge role, multiplayer becomes unnecessary.
It wasn't a decision. They figured it would never work is why they didn't do it. In Jedi Knight games there was always a balance. In this game there is nothing that could balance the multiplayer. No block system, no force resistance setup, and nothing like that. I assume anyway. If this game is just like the first one then leaving MP out was a big mistake. First game was easy to beat, repetitive a bit as well. Fun at times though. I only played thorough it once or twice. It was enough for me. Then I took it back to video store. Renting it was all I needed to do to play it.
good, this game doesn't need it, focus on giving is a great long story, which most devs seem to forget about these days.
Giving a good long story is good, but multiplayer would have been very good with this game. If any of you have played Jedi Knight 3: Jedi Academy then you know what I am talking about. There are few things in fiction that feel as good a being a Jedi. If this game had online multi-player rooms people would be playing it forever.
I loved Jedia Academy, that had such a fun multiplayer
Great choice. Keep multiplayer out of games that don't need it.
Having a second Force Unleashed is a bad idea. The first game wasn't that good.
I thought the first one was a great game. Rough around the edges concerning gameplay but there's definatly credit due for crafting an intertwining story between Episode 3+4.
This is a good idea for this game. Too many games have multi-player when not needed. Can't even find anyone playing some multi-player games, just a waste of time.
Horde mode please.
Umm multi definatly wouldn't suit this game anyway. So no point wasting time on it
Yeah this game doesn't need multiplayer online or offline.
All you nay sayers say what you will but the Jedi Knight/Academy developers would disagree about the important of mp regardless of story driven gameplay. MP is what gives the game a longer life and seeing as this game doesn't have anything to warrant a day one purchase, i'll happily rent it and complete it in that time.
Nah but have you played the first? it's nothing like Jedi knights, JK is way better but still, they're more FPSish than action game like this
MP is a great idea for their game.
I'll be buying but not at $60.
