Just like the first but offering more story, more varied colorful environments, personality, loot, guns and gore and..well you know the deal. I would've given a flat out 10 except the storyline of the Evil insensitive rich guy, drilling for the vault (instead of Oil) is a tired Hollywood meme and just too easy. Fortunately, the Protagonist is pretty darn funny anyway. Whats also great is that the characters from the first game are now no longer playable but featured as essential story elements. You also feel little more connected to the Character than the first. It also is a bit more focused it how it directs you. the game pushes you forward to keep the story flowing - as opposed to the original which basically presented a lot missions and quests and let you decide how you want to proceed. Which at times could be overwhelming. The menus are a lot more pleasing but a tad too complicated at times. This game is a flat out no-brainer.
