  1. It was like the developers couldn’t decide whether they wanted to make a killer single player mode or a killer multiplayer mode. So instead, players have to settle for average in both departments.

    For single player only experience, this game is [60] and below. If you've got the friends and a WiFi connection, the game is [an 80] and above.

    Too many of my experiences with this game were about boredom and annoyance.

    This feels like yet another genre shoehorned poorly onto hardware that just isn’t equipped to handle it.
