= Fun:5.0 out of 5 stars
If you have been bored by FPS games as of late, then this game is for you.
It does almost everything right, the combat is amazing, you are given a multitude of powers, you can execute people to regain health, ammo, or power, you can throw black holes, you can channel dark energy through your guns, you can throw bodies and foreign objects at enemies. The game just does a fantastic job at making you feel powerful.
The Story is one of the best I have seen in a game, not as good as the first game, but considering how good the first game was, that is nothing to be ashamed of. It is still one of the best written and directed video games I have ever played. It makes you feel for the characters, you get to know little subtleties about them without even realising.
This game might not be for everyone. But if you are into fast paced energetic fun shooters. Or an emotional engaging immersive story. Then this game is for you.
The only shortfall of the game really is it's length. Which comes out at around 6 or 7 hours. But fear not, the game also has a separate co-op campaign mode which you can play online with 4 other people, or on your own. Which easily adds a few more hours onto the play time. There is also a new game plus mode.
