I hope this game is f*cking awesome, I loved the first one. I hope they don't bomb it on the sequel. The only thing that was actually wrong with the first one was the tunnel voiceover and the fact that they had no cgi at all, it would have battled with Final Fantasy if it had only had some cgi sequences. Well I can't wait till June, F*ck yeah, this game is going to be the sh*t.
