Co-op all the way
The emphasis on competitive multiplayer can be a legitimate addition to some games. More often than not, it just means rehashed modes and assets from a previous installment, when it's not shoehorned into a game it simply doesn't belong to.
This "me too" mentality is slowly being discredited by interesting experiments. Co-op campaigns and innovative multiplayer offerings are being touted as the next big thing by developers such as Valve, Rockstar or Ubisoft. If Metal Gear Online was a misstep, the co-op heavy Peace Walker spun the whole concept of solo infiltration on its head without losing its balance and turning it into another virtual shooting range. No small feat, especially on a handheld.
Konami should take notice if they want to make good on their talk about regaining leadership lost to western developers. This is their chance to be truly innovative, they haven't cracked it just yet but if their last effort is any indication they only scratched the surface. Who knows what a more powerful hardware or integrated online experience could bring?
