Enjoying this game thus far. Differences from the first are subtle gameplay wise from a control standpoint. The combat feels smoother and you don't feel locked down to some animations at times like the first. And maybe your ability to chain combos is more expanded within moves. Of course the new weapons are nice too.

As far as the story, the cutscenes are nice and Shank being Shank in them as that just means tearing stuff up.lol. He's ripping open sharks mouths and slicing choppers in half with chainsaws. Their are more players you can play with in this game also. The enemies are pretty ridiculous too, i fought a amazon chick that actually had powers. To top it off she is wearing what might as well be a bikini with a cape on.lol. Flying around/teleporting and using lightning. Im on the seventh stage right now and i have not touched survival mode yet either but im liking it. Its an improvement over the first which i liked too. Fun little beat em up for 9.99.

Yes, i have good time wih the game as well. Everything feels much smoother and the levels are more varied. They pretty much fixed the problems of first game.
Shame there is no co-op campaign like previous game tho. But then again - can't complain, when the game costs 800MSP, plus there is online/local survival arenas this time. :)

    Phaethon360 @digi_matrix: Missions give you a lot of ways to take them on. Melee combat gets better with upgrades. Enjoying it a lot so far, but I enjoyed Dead Island too. (14 Hours ago)

    digi_matrix Dying Light looks so predictable, like such a known quantity. The open world and mission structure looks boring. The only fun seems to be in the parkour, not even the combat where u need 3-5 headshots (16 Hours ago)
