The first one, was, let's face it, a steaming pile of mediocrity at best and I don't even think it sold too well tbh. Doesn't seem much point to making this sequel. I know I wont be buying it.

well 1.7 million people bought the first one and i guess few people probably liked it out of 1.7 million, and IOI decided to make a sequel to please that few people
:sarcasm:

Probably because the stroy is actually good, unlike at least 97% of games now. That and it sold almost two million copies.

Sorry, you wrong ;-)

Its not the best game out there, but!!

- very nice gunplay
- great characters
- destruction in the invioment, was good.
- adult story
- varied levels & background

not that bad, for an old game ;-)

Thank you for your opinion. I don't even know why your here. Why are you here? Press X on the very top right corner and leave.

What is wrong with the game anyway? I'm with Peters here.

Some websites may have given the first game mediocre reviews but they did point out that it had a great story. I think IGN was one of them, not sure may have to go searching for it.

Just a quick one to Bevacur -

The first time i play the end of the first level, where your are waiting for the van, outside at the coffee shop, WOW that was tense.... never played a game with the many bullets flying around my ears before, very very nice ;-)

Let's not forget that the game didn't just sell nearly 2 million copies, it sold nearly 2 million copies during the same Christmas season where Modern Warfare, Halo 3, Bioshock, Assassins Creed, and Mass Effect were all released. Those are all games from very popular and well known developers. The fact that IO was able to sell a shooter while competing with those games means they must have gotten something right.

It was also a nominee at the British Academy Video Game Awards, so i would not really call this game mediocre.

But for now:

I'm going to repeat what a previous poster said and say that the story was good and it actually sold quite a lot of copies.

I was surprised, too, but in a good way.

Lol, you win. I'll even throw in this lovely .45 Magnum as a secondary weapon.

That'll be, er...*calculates*

$100.

We don't charge much because we just take our supplies off of the bodies of dead haters. Their aim is too terrible for them to ever have a chance against us.

The first one had a few problems yes, but I think that everyone is looking foward to the sequal. Are you sure you're in the right place here?

Yeah, this seems pretty pointless. Shutting it down.
