More of not quite the same.
- The combat is more indepth than BR1 since theres an actual movesets now, with evasive and attack moves aswell as finishers.
- You can increase your health and rage (vampire magix) meters by doing environment kills like tossing enemies out of windows, onto spikes, exploding them and other similar fun things.
- Weapon system got changed aswell, you dont pick up guns anymore but unlock them and then level them up by usage which means more "ammo" and power.
- Feeding on enemies doesnt only give health anymore, theres a choice between getting increased rage by doing a finisher or feeding your guns to get ammo back aswell. Its possible to milk an enemy for more than one "resource" but youll never get equal shares - draining them for mostly health means less ammo or rage and vice versa, introduces a somewhat tactical element
It suffers from the same technical problems as BR1 (controller setup, glitches if the systems too fast), can be fixed in the same way tho. Unfortunately it doesnt give a good first impression. The starting cutscenes are obviously the ones with the lower budget and the first/tutorial level is the worst of the game (imo). It gets better quick.
