answer 1 Well this IS definite cover based. You can move a bit, but you gotta be good, but still even then you gotta cover. I like it, its a good Yang to my Unreal Tournament Yin. I love UT. answer 2 It is... but I like it Answer 3 Sounds like Warzone gametype, or maybe Wingman. You should try Annex or King of the hill. But, since the game is cover style... you wont like it anyway. But yea, warzone and wingman are the only pvp one life modes. Save Horde mode. It's too bad. I love the game. Which brings me to this. I don't have gold, so I didn't know. Apparently there is alot of complaints about the lagg in public multiplayer. I know hpw people bitch about anything, but there are ALOT of complaints. There also seem to be a few bugs that have yet to be worked out... (if they get worked out) I'm kinda scared to see what comes of my gameplay when I go gold. No one here likes GOW except Smilee, and none of my friends really play, If im forced to go private matches to have consistent gameplay, but no friends to play with... wtf will I do!? lol Well you could always go by that Top Gun quote for that wingman gametype lol. There's plenty of lag in multiplayer no doubt, but that was about 2 months ago before I played with the latest patch. It's been a while since I played online, but the last time went pretty smoothly. However some matches were just terrible with extreme lag spikes. You just have to be lucky and not get frustrated. If you get a good game running then you're all set.
