I have played the first game of this series called "Crash Time", and somehow loved it despite the horrid voice acting, and lack of game in the game and repetitive missions. It was still one of my favorites.
Now this game... It's freaking amazing. I am surprised it is so unheard of. a week or 2 being out and only 2 or so people have the game. This is by far one of my favorite games I have just sat down and played in a while. I love the map option now. Before in the first game, that drove me nuts not seeing a full map, and now you have a waypoint showing you where to go. I remember from the previous game, it was so difficult on some missions because you had no clue where to go first and you had a time limit. But these are some nice features.
The graphics look EXACTLY the same as Crash Time. Most of the enhancements are just the detail and slightly different scenery as well as the story and some options like the Patrol "free roam" mode. The missions are somewhat less repetitive, and it's really fun. What I don't care for are the mission restarts. you spend so much time on a mission to lose, then start all the way over again. It gets discouraging. But the nice thing is the Hard difficulty is pretty easy. So you may not have so much trouble.
This game is amazing, and I wish more people knew about it, and wish Gamestop would sell it. Great game for a great price. I highly suggest it.
