Anyone looking for a fresh experience with great characters and faster gameplay will find that, too. It’s those looking for a true sequel that aren’t likely to succeed, as the game feels closer to a side story than a full entry in the series. It’s too unfocused and narrow to up the ante from its predecessor, despite the length of time and the events it leads to."
