8.2 / 10Combined Score
Single player gets boring quite quickly, no multiplayer offline
This game is something to buy only if your going to play online, it is a lot of fun online and doesn't get boring quickly, but the offline mode is repitive and will quickly get old, especailly with no offline multiplayer.
This game was good at the time but not something worth getting now.
Can't chat in the lobby so you limit the hook up with friends online. Voice chat limited to 5 second messages. Single player gets kind of boring.
Buy this game if you intend to play online however since it lacks split screen don't count on playing with a friend offline.
No offline multi-player. (Definetely enough to take the game down a point or I would have given it a 5)
I picked up this game about a week ago and have been hooked since. As you can tell by the title a major part of this game is the ability to play it online with other living, breathing people. Most of the time I experience no lag at all unlike games like Quake 3 Arena. Unfortunately the occasional loss of contact with the server can be annoying but that mostly depends on how good of a connection your ISP gives you.
Online you can play in Team Death Matches (Humans vs. Aliens). You can play capture the flag which is kind of this games own version of it. You can play fortress where a team has to destroy certain parts of the other team's base within a certain time limit while the defending team tries to stop them. The ranking system is interesting and will keep you online trying to boost your rank for hour...
