4 I like it, but must be played with friends.CygnusReactor | 06/08/2010 | See all CygnusReactor's reviews (2)Firstly if you don't like playing online or Co-op avoid this game. This game can be controller smashing frustrating at times, but a great joy at others. The monsters are the biggest I ever seen, even bigger than Monster Hunter or Demon Souls, but the main problem is this game was made from the ground up as a co-op game and without online help your not going to get very far. NPC 'buddies' are thick , and as useful as a chocloate fire-guard. But if you have a round of mates and they are willing to die, often, you will find some amazing co-op set pieces.
