Versus - the worst DLC in all times?

It is just retarded. The feeling in this MP is the worst I have ever experienced. Win 30 matches in every type of game, ffs! It is so unrewarding playing this shit. Everytime when the few occasions arise when Im about to win a team survivor, a player of the opposing team leaves the game. Seriously, everytime I play this I throw my controller so hard in the bed. Wouldnt surprise me if it when in to the wall some time very soon.

Unfortunaly Im one of those achievementwhores who hates incompleted games. The only thing left is to boost which takes freakin FOREVER!!!

OMG... I just needed to write som steam off. Im just so frustrated.

Well, all I can say is at least they didn't make that central to the main game and part of the 1k. They put it in some DLC. Other than that, I have never been partial to multiplayer tacked onto a single player game just because multiplayer is popular and can extend gameplay.
Co-op in the main game is quite fine though.

Definitely not. It wasn't great, by any means, but I had a lot of fun with it, personally.

It played just like Mercenaries, which is not a bad thing at all, considering Mercenaries is a great mode with a ton of replay value, especially if you like going for high scores.

Other than that, I had tons of fun with my friends and my brother when we were going for the achievements. You learn a lot of tricks and placements that help make this mode much more enjoyable. After I got all of this DLC's achievements, I played a few rounds with random people online, and I did surprisingly well.

Again, it wasn't great, but it sure was not the worst DLC ever. I would reserve that special title for any of those numerous map packs that cost 800-1200MSP for 3 maps. Those, my friend, are total ripoffs.

It's such a bad concept but they seem to have put nicotine in it because I couldn't stop playing it for some odd reason.

Versus was bad, but Desperate Escape was, by FAR, the worst DLC I've ever downloaded.

Versus mode in this seems horribly pointless. To many games tack on versus mode when it just doesn't belong in the game. But at least it's not as bad as Overlord's versus.

How many people do you need to boost?

Can you boost the VS. with 1 other person, or do you need 4 players (2 on each team) to boost? Appreciate any feedback; would be nice and easy if I could just do the 2 xbox method (I admit it's lazy but it saves a lot of time and aggravation).
Thanks,

Team has to be done with 4. The solo/lone wolves ones can be done with 1 other person.

Slayers/Team Slayers is fine but survivors/Team survivors is annoying and not fair . if the opposing team got the two shotguns first you will loose the match and when i play every time they use the bazooka quicker than me , i mean they don't even aim . . . they don't even take their weapon out of their a$$ , and when i try to do it it doesn't work.

i just how the person/team in last place gets a multiplier so they can get back in the game... cause you could be winning the whole time and then in the last 30 secs the last place guy steals your ax man kill and boom 15k they win

I agree that it's retarded. For one, the controls of the game are absolute garbage. Trying to play a twitch action game competitive mode... with your character rooted in cement whenever he/she needs to aim. OK, yeah, fuck you Capcom.

Two, the actual scoring is confusing and arbitrary, I've had many games where we've had twice as many kills, higher multipliers by FAR, and just done generally better and the other team still beats us by like 10k. Once I literally spent the entire match just trying to revive my partner 10 times for that achievement, and we ended up winning against two others who were actually trying.

The mode only serves to highlight RE5's failings: an attempt to bridge the gap between the classic Japanese survival horror and the modern American shooter and manages to botch both. It's like a DLC for Madden that removes the actual football and replaces it with 1985 text based input.

I can't deny I enjoyed the co-op though - and the excellent production values for the voice acting and cutscenes.

I like all the DLC I don't see why some people are complaining so much. Maybe they aren't the greatest but at least the prices are low.

From an achievement-whores perspective, yes, this absolutely sucks. I'm an achievement whore myself. I never really felt the anger and pressure of this game until it was down to the last achievement for 30 wins on Survivor. The combination of last-second-kills and quitters and people that were just downright BETTER than I was SUCKED! I, like you, slammed my controller down a few times (now my B-button is forever altered lol). For all the other achievements, they were fine. I would just have a few drinks and put on some music and just game out. I actually enjoyed my experience getting all the other achievements. But that last one... oh man... took over a year for me to finally get it. But anyways... Yeah, this is just a shitty DLC if you're an achievement-whore. Either way, I wish you the best of luck. Take care!

That's why I usually set up a game with my friends. NO we do not boost, we actually just have a friendly competition, but we are aware of the Versus achievements. That's why we play 5 games of it a day, both solo and Team, it helps out A LOT. You all should try it, competing against strangers stink!

The VS mode would of been better as 4 player co-op mercenaries or slayers & team slayers without the ability to shoot each other, basically co-op & competitive mercenaries.

Hell make it like the outbreak games, get from A to B with limited resources.

Versus is fun, albeit very frustrating at times. Let me know if you need a partner.

I don't think so at all. I found it fun, was it perfect no, but I enjoyed it. I didn't think it was a chore to get the achievements for it at all. Granted, it was more fun when it first came out since there were more dedicated players, but people have gotten away with charging for alot more for alot less.

The only thing to complain about the DLC is that quitters end the match. The controls are the same as in the campaign, so they shouldn't surprise anybody.

I consider the Dark Void DLC, which is retardedly hard and won't load up unless I wipe my cache EVERY SINGLE TIME, and the Army of Two 2 DLC, where the chievos don't unlock, far worse.

I hate the Versus mode so much! The other two DLC were great (Desperate Escape was totally worth the money and more), but the Versus mode sucks. For one, they can't give an automatic win for the other team when someone quits? So many rage quitters make this nearly impossible to win 30 matches of each game type.

However, I always get destroyed when I play. The other team gets magnum/shotgun right off the bat and I never know where/how to get them. I'd like this game a lot more if they kept it to pistols only so you'd at least be on level playing ground, but when the other team has guns way more powerful than you from the start, it makes it unrelenting.
