I do not understand the bad reviews on this game at all.
The game is slick and focus' on telling a story about two murdering, arms dealer scumbags in shanghai. Focusing on a single gameplay element which is cover based/run and gun third person shooting.
The cover system works like any other game as far as I could tell press a button to snap to cover, press the button or movement, the default button is C which is annoying you can change it in the config.
The shaky camera didn't both me, mosts of the time I liked it, if you don't you can also turn 'steadycam' on.
The story is dark and brutal, the proganists are prposely unlike scumbags and it's brillant because even when you die you're thinking the worlds probably better off without these guys anyway. It's one of the few games where you play the bad guy and it's fun.
don't let my logged game hours fool you, I've probably replayed 20-30 times
graphics are still great
story is dark and intense
gameplay is simple and fun
runs on almost any machine from the last 4 -5 years
The first game is also awesome for all the same reasons
The final level and ending is anti climatic
Lots of people gave bad reviews about it largely complaining about camera and control schemes than can easily be configured from the in game menu.
