Seeing as the multiplayer experience in the original was ruined on a regular and frequent basis by hackers, and with the new online requirements there are none of those, I wouldn't say it sucks on a general basis. The opposite.
But yeah, it is a shame cheaters ruin the experience for the rest of us and force always online modes. Trendy seem very open to suggestions this time around, however, so perhaps they can be convinced to implement an entirely separate single player mode, with a character that can never be taken online. Makes a lot of sense for the mobile version.
