Gameplay was excellent. Story was extremely deep and engulfs you into Conners struggle. The gameplay is still mostly the same, the dual wielding appears to be mostly cosmetic. The only drawback seems to be that the developers took away some of the freedom of choice from the other games in the series. You are following a predetermined story, without the ability to determine how you want everything to happen. However, the new weapon additions, attention to detail in the environment, hunting aspect, side missions more than make up for this. Rent this game, you wont be disappointed.
