In single play, on normal (or lower difficulty) you will likely not notice the problems this game has (which is why many of our fellow reviewers are scoring it so high). As soon as you crank the difficulty up and play in coop, the game begins to break. The AI is poorly programmed. Each mission means learning a different pattern of sporadic behavior by the AI. For instance, one mission you can sneak around the enemy AI, stabbing them in the back and shooting them with silenced pistols, but the next mission, the same low level infantry can spot you through boulders. By the half way point, you end up giving up on stealth and call a leroy jenkins. Aside from the poor AI, there is one mission where you have to protect a prisoner of war as he escapes. In this frustrating level, I witnessed the game auto save just as the POW gets killed, therefore rendering the last half hour of your life null and void. Me and my coop partner also had several sessions where we could not connect to each other (for whatever server reason), and we had numerous crash to dash events. Overall this game is fine from behind but gross up close. Rent it, you will not lose anything, but rent it for a laugh. Go into as you would a bad film like sharknado, and you will have fun.
Great game, solid improvement on the previous game

So far I've played for several hours and find the game somewhat similar to the previous title, which is fine was not expecting major differences in gameplay. There is much more immersion regarding the bullet cam: with each shot I try to make a different hardcore liver/ skull/ spinal obliteration shot that have gotten way more graphic.
They've done a great job updating this sequel to make use of the next Gen consoles, and with the lack of games to play on Xbone and PS4 its a welcomed addition.
Gameplay is good, online is dull but maybe mostly because of nobody playing it online. And the graphics look like they are the same as xbox360 graphics. All in all i'd recommend a rental but not a purchase unless you can get it cheap.
