In each campaign, how different does each character play?

I rented the game. I had intended to play each campaign once before sending it back to gamefly. Was wondering, are the characters in each campaign different enough to warrant a second playthrough in each campaign? Is the experience basically the same?

piers has a better sniper and more sniping moments. like at the bridge in chapter 2. also the final boss is different with him. jake also has a slightly different aproach to his final boss.

Not really. Each has minor differences and unique weapons. However the title characters do tend to get a bit more action and the story obviously focuses on them more than there partners.
What gets us into trouble is not what we don't know.
It's what we know for sure that just ain't so.

In a few spots, the characters get separated and have to take different paths (most notably in the Jake/Sherry Campaign, where there is a pretty big difference in gameplay at two points.) I wouldn't really make a big deal of it though. Some of the characters also have unique weapons, like Helena's Hydra shotgun (which lets you do a crazy stunt shot with it), Sherry's Stun rod, and Pier's Anti-Material Rifle.
