A. "The sequel is five times bigger and about a billion times better. You do the math."
B. "...every bit as charming and ingenious as its predecessor and, what's even
more impressive, it raises the bar for what people should expect from
the gaming industry as a whole."
C. "...capable of satisfying both fans and newcomers to the genre thanks to
great gameplay and an involving story. A strong contender to the title
of best game of the year and of the entire generation."

best and most addictive multiplayer experiences ever to hit consoles."

direction to the genre-bending gameplay... a
landmark in game design that is sure to be referenced in the years to
come. Buy it without hesitation."
F. "...jumps from one extraordinary set piece to the next, pushing the way a
videogame narrative can be presented. Equal parts exhilarating and
emotional, I can't say I have ever played a more perfectly paced game."

is a pivotal and redefining moment for the future of game design that

and other incredible facets to the game make it one that people should

atmospheric game that takes everything the first title did and ramps up
the absurdity to dangerous levels."
J. "In the end it is something that will go down in history as one of the
most innovative games of our time, and for good reason. You are simply
supposed to have this game in your collection, if you consider yourself a
gamer by any definition of the word."
