You can play 2 player-split screen on coop offline, dont know about online. But you cannot play 2 player split-screen in multiplayer offline. Thats what i think is strange. Since im not an online multiplayer type of guy, this makes me a little sad that multiplayer is ONLY online.
the days of goldeneye are over sadly i don't think game devs realise just how much people still want splitscreen.
They realize it. They just want everyone to buy their own copy.
This and this.
Look at halo 4, they added 4 players split screen in every single playlist which was partially absent in Halo Reach.
Funny they don't know that this a buying decision for them. --- "I think there is a world market for maybe five computers" Thomas Watson, chairman of IBM, 1943.
