However why if I want to play through this game, like the two previous ones, in single player do I have to play "on-line"?
Because I don't see any benefit to anyone who may want to play the game in this way.
Its laggy for one, this could have been avoided simply by not having the need to be on-line to play the game. I get the co-op feature is great, and it is fun but is the fact that I am required to be on-line at all times simply laziness on your part?
Ill be honest I was never going to play this game in co-op mode until I had completed it myself on my own. I'm slightly dissapointed that I cannot play while your having technical issues. Nobody buys a single player game that is going to require weekly maintenance, the advantage to it is that you can pick it up and play.
Also I knew this would be the case but assumed it wouldn't be that much of an issue. Turns out this bothers me more than I thought. Are their going to be any plans to convert solo play to local games ? Or is every one going to be cursed by the insufficient servers and "Game maintenance". If I wanted any of this I would have gone back to playing WOW.
And before anyone has a go at me...
1. The game rocks
2. I'm enjoying the new class system (even if it is a little simplistic and linear)
3. The story is a little dated but the atmosphere is good. The narrative is also pretty well put together.
I just feel like probably alot of people do that loging in every time to play single player game is only making my experience of what I think to be a great game with huge potential, diabolic.
