First game was great and this is coming out discounted..hoping that isnt because they didnt make the game considerably better. Only weakness off the top of my head was the characters not playing so different. All felt the same with tiny tweaks. Oh and fucking Infected take them out the game lol
Im sure the game will look just as good though, first one was gorgeous.
Dear god probably the worse technical game in history gets a sequel, maybe they should hire testers this time and make the survival game they originally set out to do rather than ripping off borderlands.
