Summary: What's great about it: Action, realisim, strategic, etc. What's not so great: Realisim [can also be bad], not as smooth to control as other games with the same style. To start off, let me clarify that this game is indeed a great game, but it lacks a couple things that other games in this genre already have. For instance, I did not like the controls of this game. I thought they were a bit slow and SOMETIMES unresponsive.
Summary: I had really enjoyed the first one so I thought I would like the 2 even better but that was almost the same stuff... moreover it was a "cold" rendering of the people and the scenery... I found it boring at times as well.... well I guess Vegas 1 was new and it was much harder to create something very different with Vegas 2.
