MP is the most fun part in Vegas 2.
There is a 2 Player Story COOP via LAN and Internet.
A 4 Player Terrorist Hunt.

And some Versus Modes, but I haven't checked on them since I mainly play Story or T-Hunt.

Face Scan is fun xD

Yeah, Vegas (and now Vegas 2) is all about the coop... probably the best coop in gaming, honestly.

I do like the versus mode where one team escorts the VIP and the other has to assassinate him though...

Yeah I'll vouch for that. I honestly can't remember such an ENJOYABLE co-op
experience. My wife and I have been playing through the story mode in co-op
and hell, if she asks me if we can play it than you know it must be fun because
she usually dislikes these types of games. I think the level design is really superb
also, I'm quite surprised overall with this one.

I'm surprised with the performance (given that the one in Vegas1 was horrible). And keep in mind that this is a Ubisoft game. If only it had subtitles and proper PC menus... But anyway, it's a good game. Not great but good one

Very strange... R5V ran very well for me, and most importantly consistently. I can't same the same for R6V2. Tried all settings.

Vegas 2 runs much better on my system than Vegas 1 does even today... I cannot have AA and HDR on at the same time in Vegas 1, no matter what, but on Vegas 2 I can crank all settings, including AA, and it runs at 50-60fps.

So... I guess these games are picky?

Just got the game today. Runs great with maxed out AA, shadows and motion blur at 1024x768. Runs like a dream, though it slows down during some of the fights. Still great nonetheless.

Also is it me or is the campaign significantly harder than vegas 1? I started on realistic difficulty and the intro level is already pretty challenging.

Yeah, I mentioned a few pages back that the game takes a lot more tactics than the first... Good change, in my opinion.

Was going to get this off Steam... I am a sucker for games with customization like that... but then my Steam account has been disabled... guess my account got hacked again or something... waiting for Valve to fix my account .
