Default So is the mutiplayer fun or blah?

I've been really looking forward to getting crysis ... but to be honest; I dont want to spend the money just for a single player game of 10 hours~

But if the mutiplayer aspect is really fun; then the cost per hour of fun is better

So how is the mutiplayer?

well, I haven't gotten the retail yet but I did play MP BETA for hours and hours. the MP is extremely fun, it basically Battlefield on steroids the only downside is, team work isn't forced well enough; but if you have bunch of buddies willing to play, you're in for a blast

Yeah, there's very little feedback on the MP from what I can see. I'm gonna have a go this afternoon and I'll report back.

I've tried it (deathmatch) yesterday for a few minutes and it seemed quite solid in terms of gameplay and FPS.

One thing that pissed me off was the lag - sometimes I would lag for about 3 seconds and play for about 3... seconds - it could last a few minutes like that.

Maybe the servers I played on were... "slow"?

Lag occurred very often for me... do not want.

I don't think it will be insanely popular because it has no unlocks and ranks ( ) but its pretty good and the maps from what I have seen work well. Even instant action is fun with the suit modes, speed seems hugely reduced in mp though, its barely faster than sprinting :/

I still don't think the netcode is quite there to say a bf2 or cs:s
