CheatCC says, "This is the perfect sequel. It reaches a hand out to those who didn't enjoy the first game, while keeping its fiercely loyal fans happy. Its only fault may be that it borrows too heavily from other influences. Between Dawn of War, tinges of a Firefly-esque space-western motif, and the original source material, there's not much in this game that will take you by surprise. It's an amazing accomplishment, but in a lot of ways, we've seen this all before."
