I still think the second one was the best. This one doesnt have the moral choices that made the second one compelling. The gameplay is pretty good and its a fun coop game. Played splitscreen couch coop first, then played solo. Its a relatively easy platinum trophy game.
I was greatly impressed with this game. If you like shooter games then this is the one for you. Filled with action packed shoot outs. I think the overkill is much cooler and easier to use than the back to back that was in the first game. Replay value is high if you are into doing achievements and unlocking guns and such. The only negative thing I have to say is about having to pay to play multiplayer. The reason I bought a PS3 was for the free online. If I wanted to pay to play online I would have kept my Xbox 360. Overall I give it a 9. Great storyline and easy to follow if you played the first game, good graphics, good weapons. Would recommend a rent for sure and possibly a buy.
