I loved the first game and now that I'm a little over half way through the second I can happily say I think this is even better.
The quality of the graphics, sound and story just add that extra bit of atmosphere and immersion.
Everything that was great about the first has been retained and with some improvements in other areas, including the game length, slightly longer than the original with more variety with some outstanding set-pieces.
I really hope this sells well or we'll end up with nothing but FPS like COD etc as they seem to make the big sales.
Anyone who liked the original will not be disappointed, anyone else who has an interest in Sci-Fi/Horror or 3rd Person Shooters will also enjoy.
Just remember to turn the lights off and put the volume up!
Ps. Would recommend playing on at least Normal if not higher difficulty.
