I hope the story in the campaign is told in a more fleshed out fashion this time out. The original had an interesting if jumbled conception...only if a player looked for it. I saw too many reviews disregard the plot as very minimal or predictibale. The things with the messages, radio stations, news brodcasts, etc. pointed to things I found intriguing, but it was hard to put the pieces together.
Hopefully the person HVS got to help pen the plot lays out a thought-provoking conspiracy to unravel that uses more effective ways to express it than Con1.
BTW, I have never used lock-on in any of the modes, and still consider myself an above average player on the first game. --- PS3: Third-Drifter
