Fantastic graphics, an interesting world, dynamic and well paced gameplay and a great soundtrack, and even very good voice acting and decent cut-scenes. I loved the original (10/10), but the second iteration falls short on the most important ingredients: storytelling and plausibility. Out with the old protagonist, who is now the evil antagonist, in with a one-dimensional, rude and moronic main character. On top of that, a lot of side missions motivated by sometimes hare-brained ideas (well, 5 out of the 5000 armored vehicles in the city are getting better armor - surely the protagonist will show up to specifically wreck this facility... and on the thirty-fifth wrecking of a facility, nobody wonders that just one guy walks out unharmed and immediately disappears?). The joy of exploration of the environs and the wow-factor in the upgrades was also missing, partly because there was less motivation to explore and the upgrades didn't fit into the story. Sad to see a great game universe grow so unpalatable, especially given that all the hard stuff has been done right in this game. Sigh.
