This game seemed pretty sweet at first, but after awhile me and my friend got bored of it. I enjoyed the first one alot and had high hopes for this game, but the story is cheesy compared to the first one. The controls are better, and the camera is cool, but its also annoying especially when you are running around. The guns and sound are very well done, but the ai takes many shots to kill and after awhile you just wait for the spot you know the ai is gonna pop out and you shoot them. Shoot shoot shoot thats it. Sucks for my friend he actually bought this game hahahahahahaha

I was excited to play a game from the same folks that gave us Hitman. But when I loaded up the game I lost any enthusiasm. Five minutes into the game I was already frustrated trying to wrestle the broken over the shoulder third person shooting mechanic. The lighting was a migraine inducing combination of overly bright neon lights and simulated lens flair, resulting in a "Las Vegas after an opium overdose" feel to the visuals. The use of cover was well done and easy to use most of the time, but the character seems to move very slow. But to be honest, Lynch would probably be classified as geriatric(old guy). And a terrible story is the cherry to top off this excrement sundae drizzled with the blood of a hepatitis positive nun. This game was dismally bad to me but you may find a niche that it fills in your life. After all that's why we have game fly, so we can loose all hope when we realize a game is utterly disappointing, but not have to suffer the loss of $60.00

I honestly think the developers are on here giving this game good reviews because it is complete garbage. Usually with most games, part 2 is suppose to be a huge improvement. In comparison, with games such as Army of Two and it's second installment. This game has no improvements at all, it even goes backwards to a more horrible game than the previous one. The storyline doesn't click with part 1 and has several glitches.
All these reviews are people whom play the game on either easy or normal. If you do play it on Extreme you will realize that its not challenging but very frustrating with the several glitches that come with this piece of garbage from the U.K. I recommend Gamefly to take this game off their inventory because it is the worst game of the year. I never felt so disappointed with a sequel to a game until now. At times, I even felt I was going to go bald like Lynch out of frustration plus I was playing it on co-op. I'd rather play part one over this game any day.
I hope the developers never create another sequel or game in their lifetime. The shooting system was even better on part one than this game.
