Multiplayer is pretty great! The only bad thing I can see is that it says "Free online multiplayer, for a limited time". I don't mind paying for a full game for unlimited multiplayer, I just hope we don't get nickel and dimed in a pay per play online DLC crap. Aside from that the game runs and looks great on my 2G iphone and I'm enjoying the online component a lot.
