Def going through it a second time so I can't hit 50 on mord....he's worth it.
Why cant you play with your friends. I will offer some advice that no one seemed to have before, if your having issues. These are the ports that need to be forwarded
3783 (Voice Chat Port)
27900 (Master Server UDP Heartbeat)
28900 (Master Server List Request)
29900 (GP Connection Manager)
29901 (GP Search Manager)
13139 (Custom UDP Pings)
6515 (Dplay UDP)
6500 (Query Port)
Go to http://portforward.com/
then find your router, set a static IP address, then configure your router to allow those ports to be forwarded, remember to click the "Enable" box to the right hand side of the ports after you enter their info, or they won't be activated. Then you can either add exceptions to your Windows Firewall, or turn it off when you game, I'm lazy so I just turned mine off. Taking all these steps helped me to finally get MP working, and I ran over to my friends and did it for him so he can host, all working great now.

What's so fun about it? Just the run n gun shooting? The opposition? The weapons?
It's just a flat out good game. I was worried about cartoony graphics, but honestly buildings and weapons look just like Fallout styled. Characters do (except Brick since he has a skewed body) from a distance, and actually once you see how they intro characters, its hard to see it done in just real like images. The look really adds grit to the game, gives it some attitude.
Then the combat is a lot of fun, Skags are a bit annoying since they dont all spawn at once, but the rest of the mobs are smart (they will run to high up buildings and fire at you through windows), and cool mobs. The classes are pretty cool, and team play is a ton of fun. And that last parts the big one, outside of MMO's there hasn't be a small number co-op type game that has been this fun since I would say D2. The game was great on SP, but when I MP'd with my friend it was a ton of fun, it helped me figure out my spec, now I should be master combat healer, once Marine gets his game today he's gonna be Brick tank and we will have a mean team.
