Lack of multiplayer really lessens the appeal.

I enjoyed the first 3 b/c of multiplayer (though I wish they'd stop only offering brutal difficulty level, having the option of a kids difficulty level would make their games MUCH more played b/c I could play with my kids). If they don't want to offer the option that's fine, but I really don't know what the up-side to not offering the option is.

As far as shooters go, I strongly recommend letting a second player be able to aim and shoot at the screen ala Sin & Punishment or Skycrawlers. Without that type of option I'll pass on it (even though it looks great, like Runner, which I also passed on due to single-player-ness).

Just letting everyone know that this game does feature a 2 player mode. It is similar to Sin & Punishment as one player controls Commander Video and the other controls the shooting.
