I think they sound cool in theory but... most of the time it's Fail like Dark Void for example, I would have rather seen an expansion to the exsisting vehicles such has the 1 man HGH fighters which would require a more open world unless they made specific lvl's for it.
So what do u guys think it's going to Fail ? or... Do u think it can be smartly used & open up the lvls vertically similar to how Uncharted changed TPS's ?

i think it's a good addition to the game (if done correctly) i looked at the other threads and a lot of people want to be able to shoot from the jet packs, others want to hit people while flying, and if i recall correctly, someone actually wanted to snipe while they were high up, i think that would all be bad. if they are just used for what they are suppose to be used for (going to point B from point A) then that would be a good idea, they don't have to do anything fancy with it, just be able to get around faster.
Good for single player, and I'm iffy about multiplayer. I think it could be done very well, and the mech section in Kz2 proves that they can do it well. I don't think MP needs it, but it can be a cool section for SP.
I think they are going to be used primarily for platforming sections in SP, like navigating across canyons. In the IGN article they mentioned something about a height cap, so you can't just take off and fly around (which I think is a good thing). I'm sure the Helghast will be able to use them more liberally during the campaign, making it more of a challenge for us to take them out.
