Just finished the story mode, but I was wondering if the multi player was good enough(community, skill, fun,balance,etc) to put $10 for.

- Put this on he PS3 board, but wanted to get some responses here too.

Regarding the community, the people on this board are all great at giving advice and they're all pretty skilled players.
Fun/Balance, the MP in this game is VERY well balanced. Everything has some sort of con, but it doesn't outweigh the pros.
For example, the Military Sniper is a high powered sniper rifle that one shot kills on a headshot, but it requires 4 load out points. (and in the beginning you only have 10 load out points for each class)
It is also a purchaseable weapon, where you have to buy it during a match using points you earn from reviving, downing, executing, and marking..maybe there are more I'm forgetting but you get the idea.
The MP is very unique, and even though there are only two game modes now (one with respawns and one without) it's very fun if you find yourself in a good group.
All in all, MP is worth it.

I don't really care for the multiplayer. Maybe you can check out some videos on youtube or something to see if it's something you're interested in.

YES!!! The multiplayer is sooo addicting, once you understand how it works. A tip, make sure if you do decide to go online on your own, join games without parties.

I ignored MP because most of my console MP experience sucks - M.A.G. was the only exception because it was entirely on-line and I played it for months. Anyway.... Single Player is pretty satisfying, I went through Normal and Hard before deciding to give MP a chance.

Totally worth it. If you really want to get the most out of MP, get a mic and make friends.

Like all mp games, it may or may not suit your fancy.

I like it even if I'm not that good, so I'd say, throw down the $10. You'll get better mileage if you can find some people to play it as a team, with mics. It's helpful for calling out information, esp. for enemy opponents that can't be marked in the usual manner.

The downside with the MP is that there are relatively few maps. There are two DLC expansions coming though to help remedy that.

The upside is that there's many different ways to play the MP. I haven't even tried sniping or using a bow and arrow at this point myself, or setting up classes to take advantage of purchasable weapons.
So even with the few maps available, there's much to do.
