Sid's Favourites

Multiplayer modes are often the only parts of a game a play. Initially this was just because I was short on time, but more recently I've realised these are simply my favourite parts.

There are many kinds of online multiplayer games that you can find. For example, when you are visiting an online casino, you can chat and play casino games together with players all around the world.

Here, I aim to find the best multiplayer games out there that offer a time-short gamer just the right amount of fun and challenge desired. I'll be wading through all manner of games and spilling the beans on the reality of online play - from the greats that need hours of practice to master, to the simple that need no practice at all to enjoy.

Saints Row: The Third is a good time on steroids. Even a hardened multiplayer loving gamer such as me can see the sound entertainment logic behind running around an imaginary city naked dominating enemies with psychic sea creatures. Some will dismiss all this frivolity as just that, a feel good flash in the pan, but there is actually a lot more substance here than such a verdict would suggest... read now

Need For Speed: The Run turns its back on circuits in favour of a story driven point-to-point race. Blessed with Hot Pursuit's Autolog system and Battlefield's Frostbite 2 engine, it delivers a good game that should have been a lot better... read now
