Do NOT buy this game for the Multiplayer.
First thing first, i love the game. Absolutely love it. I think they have done an amazing job, and would prompt everyone to buy it, except for one (pretty big) issue.
If you have bought this game for the singleplayer mode, than this doesn´t apply. But if you have bought this game for the multiplayer mode mainly... well you´re screwed.
You, in MP the missions are LOCKED. And you can´t unlock them by playing through the MP campaign. The only way is to trudge through the singleplayer campaign.
This might not seem like a big issue at first glance... but it has absolutely ruined the game for me. I bought it for myself and my brother, so we could play a campaign against eachother. Only to realize, the game didn´t ALLOW us to do that, because we haven´t unlocked the missions in singleplayer mode.
So, now one of us HAS to play through the game, learn all the maps, and get an unfair advantage. Not to mention, the joy of experiencing new missions together completely gone. Worse is, we bought it because of the awesome asynchronous multiplayer, because we don´t have that much time to play. And we sure as heck don´t have the time to trudge through a whole singleplayer campaign.
Absolutely ridicilous. Great idea you guys, sell us a digitalized board game but remove the feature to PLAY TOGETHER as you want. Just imagine buying Monopoly, only to realize there is just ONE playable piece. You call up Hasbro and tell them that the other pieces are missing, so now you can´t play with your friends, and you ask Hasbro to send those pieces to you. And Hasbro answers: "sure, of course we understand you wanna play with your friends, we will send them out, but first you must play the game ALONE for ten hours!! Only THEN CAN YOU PLAY WITH YOUR FRIENDS!! MUHAHAHAHA!!!"
Honestly, this is such a stupid design decision it boggles my mind, and i almost want a refund. I bought it because it promised me multiplayer, and what i got was a fraction of multiplayer, and the rest LOCKED BEHIND BARS.
Just patch it, or release a "unlock all missions" DLC for 5 dollars. I don´t care. Just fix it. I´m sorry for my rude tone, but i´m quite annoyed.
