Doesn't live up to the original

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.

The controls, graphics, blood and gore are all there. But i feel that it lacks a good story and the missions are incredibly repetitive.
