I wasn't planning on playing online at all, I just thought it might have a good story.
It is really meant to be played with friends, or at least people who are good at it and know what to do. It is strategic, and isn't about running and gunning. If you intend to play with the AI, you aren't going to get very far. So I guess this game just isn't for you
I still think you should try it though. There is nothing wrong with trying new things. Just give it a chance at least man --- A plethora of farts a day keep almost everyone away. Especially if they are stinky
