JimBob889, I thought the same thing when I first heard that it would only be 4 players. I heard it months before release and thought that the developers must be idiots. I was wrong.

Four players is the perfect number of people for a stealth game like this. The more you play it, the more you'll realize that having 16 people playing a stealth game (meaning teams of 8 spies vs. 8 mercs) just wouldn't make as much sense. First, the levels would have to be immense to allow for tension to build on a similar level, otherwise it would turn into a deathmatch-like competition. Spies would just run around going insane and Mercs would fire off grenades all at once in current levels. There would be no point to stealth. Second, 8 spies could all surround one merc elbowing him until someone gets the chance to do a chokehold to kill him. It isn't like Rainbow Six, it would be ridiculous to have that many people in this game.

i agree with travesty wholeheartedly. if u dont like stealth games then u shuldnt have boughten it in the first place. this is a game of pure stealth, online and offline. if it were even 3v3 it would be too crowded. mercs would detect spies too easily and spy stealth wouldnt be as pronounced. believe me, if u like stealth type of games, try it. its not a POS, and is a game to be approached with an open mind

my question is why didn't this guy look into the game ahead of time or even read any previews b4 it came out, cuase just about every preview i read mentioned the MP in one way or another...

probably by going with the hype that it's a new Tom Clancy Splinter Cell game and forgetting that brains aren't included

you know...if you'd turned the box around and looked on the back of it before you bought it...you'd see a little thing at the bottom that says...

Players 1-4

and please refrain from swearing (well, i mean please refrain from blanking out the letters so it LOOKS like you're swearing) cos the mods wont like it one bit

Guy's probably got a PS2 anyway so he should be used to online games maxing out at 4 players anyway.

The game wouldn't work with more players, it's perfectly designed for 4 players and only people who haven't played the game properly would contest this.

Put my name on travesty's post and you have my opinion.

JimBob. Take a moment and breathe! You might need anger management.

YOU KNOW IF YOU THINK ABOUT IT 4 VERSUS 4 DOESNT SOUND THAT BAD ITS NOT A LOT BUT NOT TO SMALL

but ross2212, many of the game mechanics would have to be changed to allow for more people. I know 8 players doesn't sound like a lot for the average game, but remember that this is a multiplayer game based around stealth. If you want big games, play Rainbow Six 3, SOCOM 2 (if you have PS2), or you'll just have to wait for Halo 2.

not for the current maps. maybe in a sequel where the maps are bigger to allow for more players.

You know what Im mad about they dont even let you do 3 on 3 in a free game. It would work on a couple levels like vertigo plaza and the mall

Video Games are meant for fantasy world only. If video games were like real life we would all be screwed.

I suppose it would be possible on Federal Bank and Warehouse if they had 1 more ND133 to neutralize and all sectors were open.
