This was a nostalgic visit and I loved every second of it. However, it was kinda bad that the copy I received wouldn't let me play the last mission. But that didn't stop me from completing all the other side quests and just having fun with it. Definitely worth it.
The game has improved from the first, but the car driving is just as bad on the PC as it is on the XBox. I feel the game would have also improved as the story is better, but the mini-games to improve your respect level become almost repetitive. And really, the respect level to get more gangs to back you is almost as insipid as some of the mini-games.
