Thusly, I find myself on to the bad points of this release. The foremost of which being the criminal mistake of not having any online multiplayer components at all, now while I do understand the emphasis on couch gaming - don't get me wrong, I'm one of the biggest advocators of it - the fact that this game is released on Steam with no online functionality outside of leader boards is absolutely shocking. People don't play local co-op on a PC as that kind of 'Sitting back on the couch with your friends yelling at each other' situation is already at home on the console market, you don't gather round a PC to play video games together unless you are at a LAN party, another way of playing that this game also doesn't support. Slybots also doesn't seem to have much substance behind it bar playing a few games with your friends at a party, sure the stealth mechanics are cool and all, but the problem is that both game modes actively discourage using stealth as a tactic. Capture the Flag requires you to bring an objective back to base, meaning that staying still isn't going to help you achieve your objective, and Deathmatch is always timed so it's a battle of attack instead of stealth, discouraging you from paying tactically, leaving players instead just rushing out to kill their opponents as quickly as possible. It's a shame as the single player stealth challenges seem to be really good actually, and I think perhaps the game would have been better off by focusing on those aspects instead of multiplayer combat.
In conclusion then, I wonder why this game wasn't released on the main consoles’ online stores as it seems to fit the couch gaming demographic far better, and the controls are more suited to consoles rather than a mouse and keyboard set-up. Missing an online multiplayer when you have released on Steam is a huge misstep in my opinion, and until this is rectified I would say that while the game is certainly still cheap and fun for a few games with friends, you won't be making this your new multiplayer party game anytime soon.
