i just remember the bad guys kept getting better and the guns become incredibly awesome. at first it's just pistols n shotguns, but later you get these hightech energy weapons that just feel right.
this game did have it's faults, i didnt care for the canine sneaking (or the fact your dog is pissing on generators to turn off electric security fences? thats silly tho lol)
and i disliked the level with the injured girl you had to protect and the slow painful walk, but i think those were just minutes of the game. i totally platted it, and am now working on 100% with the dlc.
really tho, if you are on the fence it's at least worth a rental. buy it for $14 through amazon(ps3 only tho) and lock it in for $15 at bestbuytradein.com. if you don't like it send it back before 4 weeks and get $15 bestbuy giftcard that you can use to buy $15 amazon gift card. free rental and no risk ;)

I love how a lot of the parts of the game you mentioned you disliked are parts of the game I thought was fun. I really loved the stealth Shadow parts, and a few of the 'escort' type parts I thought were fun and challenging. I actually wish there were more of the Shadow parts of the game, because I found those to be very fun.

I'd check TRU clearance sections 1st before buying this was a $20ish game sometime ago haven't been in TRU lately but could be a better deal if it's dropped in price to buy during B1G1 50% off.

Wow. The PS3 version actually cheaper than 360 version. That almost never happens.

I really enjoyed the game. Unless I was doing things wrong,
melee combat was needed often, but not nearly as often as
the first game.

Also, the melee has been improved upon from the first game.

The 360 version is now $13.60
Edit: Sold by inetvideo. It still comes out cheaper than the PS3 version. Unless you are an Amazon Prime member.

360 version has been in my cart for months. Its been slowly dropping (for 360), but like someone said, the other amazon sellers still have it for less. Maybe when it hits $10.

Yeah, I used melee a lot in this one. The combos are cool too.

Wow. Add me to the few people here who are surprised so many people are liking this game. I totally did not, but as someone pointed out earlier, it is pretty easy to get all the achievements/trophies.

If you don't like hand-to-hand combat games, then stay away. Here's one of the things I hated about it: you have a gun in your hand, an enemy comes up to you and punches you, your character automatically puts his gun away and puts up his arms in a boxing stance -- like, WTF. If I have a loaded gun in my hand and some dude wants to get all up in my face, I'm going to pump some lead into his face. I'm not going to put my gun away. Retarded.

Edit: If you do get this game, make sure you are at full attention and have your hands on the controller at all times during cutscenes. Sometimes you think it's a generic cutscene that will end this section of the game, but no. It's to give you a false sense of security, then the cutscene ends, and the other dude kills you with one punch/kick/whatever if you're not paying attention. Those are the only times I have died. Pissed me off as much as the deadly accurate grenades in World at War cuz it's freakin unfair. There's no way on your first playthrough you would ever have known what to do.
