What are everyones impressions of the new co-op pack? I like the majority of the missions, wish they didn't bring back herding cattle from the single player, didn't like it then and don't like it now. The Escape and the gold mine might be my favorites. And hey you can't go wrong when they give you something for free. .
i like them my favorite at the moment is The River even though i havent gotten past the farry because my sqaudys keep killing me on the raft.
I'm pretty happy with it. After the initial hiccup, I've actually had less issues with party members losing connection in the co-op mode than with the team game modes (though that may have been addressed to some degree as well).
I like most of the missions, though some seem like they'd be better with fewer-on the raft quest for instance I can never get many kills before the get snagged on the river.
The herding quest isn't so bad, other than the fact that your herd tends to get shredded between the last checkpoint and the endpoint.
Anyway, I like that they all reward good xp. I figured that this mode's imminent arrival was part of the reason they borked the xp for the gang hideouts.
ya they are giving me over 1 k a hideout and since if you have a mic people will listen to you and actuly work as a team unlike in gang matches it really works well if you mic runs out of batterys your focked though....any way as any one succesfuly completed them all yet?
I still need to complete the one in the Goldmine, almost got it with my friends on the first run but the random guy in our party had no mic and apparently wasn't into rezing teammates.
Anyway, like anything, I'd much rather play this mode with friends than randoms; for one thing, so far, none of the randoms I've played with have had headsets on- though most of them are aware enough to rez people.
my favorites are Walton's Gold and Kidnapped Girl (aka the only coop missions I can finish in Advanced mode). I don't like that Cattle herding one though, finished that one on coop too but had only 6 left, on the regular one I had all alive
I just finished a session of all 6 a couple days ago, it was great fun. Played the first 5 with my brother in group, and got gold no problem. Then he took off and I was put with 3 jerks for the kidnapped girl... they left me behind when they all got in the coach, then got massacred at the bridge... lulz
similar thing happend to me except on the fairy... 3 other guys slowly push me to the edge when i was getting a soda... then when the raft hit the shore i fell into the water... then they jumped out and died really easy since i was the only solider.
They're pretty great. Especially when you unlock advanced, more challenging. They can get somewhat repetitive after a while, though. Maybe a second co-op map pack in the future? :3
@deltadawgs - WAT???
just hello... no one seems to be talking in ANY of the groups.
Even Halo? I'm not a member, but I imagine that one is pretty active at the moment. The communities around here tend to jump from release to release.
thats true, i hope teh Civilization group starts up again at civ 5 release.
