"Fun" is subjective. An action game that I had more fun with? Any TR game, GTA3, VC, SA, SR2, 3, 4 (and 4 kinda sucked, really). well...pretty much any action game I have ever played was more fun for me.
So like I said, if terrible mechanics and terrible animation, and terrible everything else is fun for you, then I'm glad your purchase was worth it. JC2 just annoyed me, it was not fun at all.
It is a capital mistake to theorize before one has data. ...one begins to twist facts to suit theories.... Sir Arthur Conan Doyle
