"The game picks up right where the first left off. After gathering absolutely everything in the first game, Max says he’s going to go off on his own to investigate some "new intel." His new quest brings him to a brand new hub world that feels absolutely refreshing and much more open than the first game, as though you're progressing towards some larger purpose rather than just completing levels and cleaning up muddy pests. I played one later level from each world, including the final one, as well as facing one of many bosses.
So, what’s changed?"
