Keyboards were primed with phrases and questions such as "more like Vegas 1.5" and "why not just release this as downloadable content". Harsh words, perhaps, but surely understandable given that this is not much of a departure from the original game. And let's be clear: this is very, very close to playing it just a little too safe by Ubisoft.
Sure, if it isn't broken don't try and fix it, but you can always try and make it just that little bit better, which thankfully is the approach taken here. Keep all the good stuff, tweak the not so good, add a little bit and jettison the rubbish. Admittedly there wasn't a lot of rubbish in the first game, so that was a safe bet. You'll recognise the world you fight in. In fact some of the locations, if you played the first game, you will recognise very well as they haven't changed much since they were imported into this. The story doesn't really act as a sequel, or a real prequel for that matter. It evolves along its own lines leading to an impression that it was another safe option taken by Ubi."
