OK, now that we've had the game for a few days, what is everyone's impression of the multiplayer in JSRF?
(I'm cross-posting my comments from another thread to start this one that only deals with JSRF multiplayer.)
Some friends and I tried some 3-player games, and found they came up pretty short when compared to the single player game. You can't compete in the actual single player levels, and are forced to select from some clausterphobic tracks (for racing) and arenas (for tag-like games). And, one MP game type (I think it's the tag the most areas in the time limit) is only for 2 players.
Did we miss something somewhere? Please tell me I'm wrong! I wanted to love this game, but when it came to the MP, I was really disappointed.
I'd have to say that once you 100% the SP game (finding all the hidden tags) there's not much replay value since the MP is lacking. Although, having not finished the game, I'm not sure what extras might be opened up by doing so. Keeping my fingers crossed on that!
I don't want anyone to think that I don't like this game. I think the Single Player game so far is amazing, beautiful, frustrating, and very rewarding all at the same time. Skillfully blazing along wires high above the city is awesome. And unlocking new tags is great. I just wish these same levels or at least smaller versions of them (not arenas) were available in the multiplayer.
Let's hear what everyone thinks....
