For those of you who haven't seen the video yet: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WS979_KdPl0 (I don't know how to embed) (Oh, like that, lol) Now, I've been playing a lot of multiplayer games in my lifetime and wanted to give my own personal pros and cons on how the multi-player is executed Pros 1. The Light vs. Dark Mode This is a very interesting mode, probably made make the multiplayer unique from other third-person shooters. It works like your normal team deathmatch, but adds a health bar for each team, rather than have it be a 'this many kills to win' ordeal. Additionally, the fact that when the meter depletes, an angel is spawned, adds more excitement to the mode. Depending on who becomes the angel, it can be a great comeback for your team, or a tragic los. Elements like these help to balance the game and not make it seem like the game is determined in the first 2 minutes. 2. The Health Bars (Team) This makes the game extremely balanced and completely eliminates the hatred of OP weaponry. Depending on the value and strength of the weapon you hold, dying with a weapon depletes your team's health. The more broken your weapon is, the more damage you may end up doing to yourself and your team if you die. This now leaves the player with two options: Do I use a weak weapon, probably not get a lot of kills, and not hurt my team too much, or do I pick up a strong weapon, get ls of kills, but risk hurting my team greatly if I die? This is going to make a lot of newbies with good weapons think twice before simply choosing the strongest weapon the have 3. Skills Now, I'm still a little clueless on how skills are obtained and used, but they can be used to sway a match in your favor.. Skills that were shown in the video, like Darkness, Super Speed, and Transparency are all great little modifiers. Hopefully, they can't be spammed too much. 4. Weaponry THERE ARE SO MANY WEAPONS!!!!! If you watch the weapons showcase video (Too lazy to link), There are about 8 weapon types ot choose from, along with weapon fusion (something touched on in the Nintendo Direct conference). The best part is that neither melee nor ranged attacks seem to be better than the other, since you cannot switch weapons while alive in a match. For example, the black club in the video was able to launch balls of energy, making a seemingly useless weapon pretty cool. CONS 1. That laser!!!!! Now, I don't know what the hell that was in the first second of the match. but that giant laser that was launched will definetly be something spammed when the game drops. Now to mention that the laser stays there for about 4 seconds, allowing for some kills early game. We'll see how it is executed. 2. No Flying? Sadly, you cannot fly, and if you saw the last seconds of the fight, you'd see that this can make you die very easily due to falling. The beam claws who killed Dark Pit in the end took advantage of this, and juggled him into the air, falling to his doom. Knocking people off the stage may end up being the cheap thing a lot of newbies will do, especially if they have a weapon capable of pushing. 3. The controls Now, I'm a lefty, and when I first saw the gameplay for this game, I was a little skeptical. Obviously, having an analog wil be better, but I hope they allow for button movement for lefties. I would hate to have to not play the game just because I'm left handed. SO whatare your thoughts on the multiplayer? Comment below!!!
