I wasn't paying to much attention to this game to be honest. I had played the first one when it first came out and loved it, mostly because I did no research on it before I played it and it ended up being so good. I was really hoping for a sequel but, I guess it had been so long, I didn't have much faith that it'd be good. Boy was I wrong.

This game is awesome. It took some time to get adjusted to the new art style (the first one was gritty, like Batman) but the cel-shaded, comic book look was definitely the right direction for the series. The game is just really well made. The story isn't insanely long, but, probably feels longer than any War game on the market. The controls are good, the powers are awesome. Voice acting may be some of best around as far as keeping you in the story, being believable and just being good. You feel incredibly powerful, as you should. The enemies are... what you'd expect. Boss battles are interesting, though nothing crazy. But the story is good. Weird. But, better than 90% of video games around.

Vendettas is awesome too. That and New Game + definitely keeps the game in your system for a while.

Seriously, check this game out, it's very enjoyable and give you a lot mess around with.

The character model are ps2 at best. The shooting mechanics are weak. The story is interesting but EXTREMELY short and leaves you feeling ROBBED. If you want a real shooter with a rewarding story look ELSEWHERE...........

I never played the first one. This was ok. The levels and story were a bit dull. The gameplay is awesome at first then it's kind of repetitive. The trophies are VERY easy. I was going to platinum it but I couldn't stand to continue playing. It was just so boring after awhile.
