Multiplayer is a must these days, if it does not have multiplayer or co-op the reviewe just get lower. Remember when killzone 2 got bashed for not having co-op?
Multiplayer and co-op are just sly ways of cementing that 9+ score on ign. Bioshock 2 was one of the last games i thought would end up having mutliplayer, So was dead space 2 and gta iv believe it or not.

I'll tell you what those whores want to do, Slap a multiplayer and co-op mode on a game like flower. Next your going to be paying a tenner for co-op in dlc form(wait that's already happened - resi evil 5). If you thought mulitplayer map packs were as far as it would go then your very wrong. Next there going to be charging for multiplayer game modes, Next thing you know is your downloading a 4 gb file and paying £20 for the full multiplayer mode which should have been in the f**king game.

Developers slapping multiplayer modes on games which you thought never needed them is just the start of something very very ugly. It's call big business and it wants every f**king penny you have.

Remember goldeneye, mgs1, zelda 64 etc? those were the great days when gaming was fun and simple. Great games which are fun and simple really should'nt be whored out to the highest bidder.

I'll give multiplayer a go. I am in the camp that Muliplayer can be a benefit in Bioshock. A sort of chronical or the bedlam that was unleashed with the availability of Plasmids. Obviously, everything went to pot so multiplayer is a way of showing us what sort of thing was happening before Jack landed back in Rapture.
Optimus Prime: I want you to go in that bag, and find my wallet.
Megatron: Which one is it?
Optimus Prime: It's the one that says Bad motherf**ker

More interesting that the developer feels the need to let fans know that multiplayer is not just an after-thought.

The fact a different company worked on the multiplayer section makes it obvious this side of the game has been treated respectfully and hasn't just been tacked on. So why the need to stress this further? I suspect, like the majority of us, they fear the multiplayer side of BioShock will be all but ignored by most.

I've no doubt that the game will be popular enough, but I can't imagine multiplayer will compete with the likes of Halo, Call of Duty, or as popular online as the Left4Dead and Borderlands market for that matter. Bioshock didn't need multiplayer, I can't blame the developers for trying, but I suspect it'll take another sequel or two for it's multiplayer to be popular, if it's ever going to be.
