Wow I just ran into this topic randomly...Yes there is an offline multiplayer and it is worth it.....better than the ps2 version which requires you to have a LAN adapter thingy to play with online players. You will get bored of it sometimes. You can change the multiplayer settings and has two original game modes if I remembered: Team Deathmatch and deathmatch? Well hoped this helped. This board is pretty cleaned out.
