No, hamachi makes a virtual private network so the computers appear to be in a LAN, but in the end it doesn't change how networking is done. Lag compensation still has to be done and that is arguably one of the hardest parts.
It's why I always try to refer to it as "network multiplayer". It's the same, except with WAN the connection has to go over a few more routers (and be port translated a once or twice but that's a different story).
