User Reviews

 
It evolved but story is a bit weak for the first game.
18 June 2019 | by ShyinxSee all my reviews

It may deserves 10 points but I'm sorry for this. But the first game was better for this one it is clear. It continues with its own style but style of the first game was better than this. Real good story continues with better graphics, sounds and playability. I didn't gave a 10 points but I know this is a golden game. Just perfect.
