Just wondering how the mulitplayer portion of the game is. I am about 60% on single player, and notice that quite a few of the trophies are from the MP. I have been playing AC3 Mp and enjoy it, despite the run arounders; is this MP like Uncharted or COD
The first night I had tried searching for a multiplayer match, the game says it found one, but then the connection didn't go through to a lobby... and thus I was forced to try searching again. The same result happened a couple more times.
The next day I finally wound up in a lobby for the game known as Rescue, which has one team trying to collect medical supplies laid out in the open across the field while the other team of enemies just has to keep blasting away to try and stop them. It's sort of like a spin on Capture the Flag or Uncharted's treasure-carrying game. The match though seemed very unfair. There was maybe about five or seven players on the other team versus the three or four we had. You have no ability to slide up against the wall for cover, so basically you have to try to hope that you can hit your enemy before they get you. I just kept dying while shooting upon a single enemy, from which they were often banded together firing upon my team from the distance and always pushing up on our team's base.
From what I've played of the multiplayer I can't say that I like it very much. It seems to come off as a very different game from the single-player. The visuals are much more degraded and apparently the gameplay just seems tossed together as a sloppy means to compile a format for networking. While half of the trophy list is composed of multiplayer, the online gaming in Tomb Raider (from what I can tell) doesn't come across as too inviting. I don't think I'll put much time into competing here.
I've yet to play it, but I've heard many cons about it on PS3.
I watched by brother play it with some friends on XBOX. It ran fine, it was packed, and looked like a blast.
Like most peope have stated, I've experienced the lag as well.
I find MP interesting, yet there's still that lag.
As for trophies for MP, my brother has had no issue getting the trophies in that mode. I for one, haven't worked my way to even bother.
I believe you can only prestige 3 times, and you'll have to do so, in ordere to obtain a trophy.
It tries too hard to be on the same caliber of Uncharted, but fails miserably.
