Well not having played the first game I went kinda blind into this game. It was pretty fun paying the storyline, kinda generic weapons and missions but then my friend came over an picked up a controller. The game was instantly transformed into a great piece of work! despite the split screen we managed to paly through the game 2 times we enjoyed it so much. It was such a blast to play with a friend through the campaign mode on this game. Smooth and seamless we were able to work together to progress through the levels and some of the harder bosses. The story was pretty bad but offered a few chuckles. Control worked pretty good and it was fun ebing able to design your own clothing and mask. On the flip side the online multiplayer wasnt so good, didnt spend more than a few hours with nit before I called it quits. All in all if you are looking for a great co-op game for you and a buddy this is the GAME!

Pros: Lively environments and excellent graphics - there's usually debris flying around or some building falling, good gunplay, co-op is a lot of fun to play when you can find someone, voice acting is decent. Morality choices have interesting "flash-forward" outcomes depending on what you choose.

Cons: The graphics in building explosions can look cheap and blocky. Story is a bit abysmal, not very exciting, aiming is difficult - I can't pin down why even after adjusting options, maybe framerate? Speaking of framerate, it can get bad and interfere a lot; sound design is not very good and you can't adjust voices, background music, etc. Sometimes the game will glitch and the gunfire and other effects will go soft until you reload the next level.

Due to the game being out for half a year, the online for the main campaign is disappointingly empty. You have to seek out players on the Web. The campaign difficulty spikes in the last chapter. The last two areas of the game are especially cheap. Constant pouring out of enemies. Thankfully, there's no trophy for beating it on Normal, so I set it to Casual and let my blood pressure go back to normal. Too many enemies in general. It's like they knew their levels were small and linear, so they put in twice as many enemies as they needed, like the first Uncharted.

I enjoyed this game. Of course its meant for co-op and thats exactly how I played it along with my next door neighbor who is a good friend of mine. I got to say the enemies did have good AI and it was a fun game that my friend and I enjoyed. I would recommend this to others for rent but for me its not really a buyer.(just my thought) it does have couple extras but I didn't really bother I just stuck with the mission.
