The only things SR2 has going for it is its co-op, a few funny lines of dialogue, elements of its OTT nature (most of which gets boring fast), and a reasonable level of fun. |
GTA obliterates it in every other aspect. The audio is average at best, the graphics functional when not glitchy, the plot is hilariously bad (which is sort of the point, granted), the missions really not that exciting or varied, your character is the biggest twat in the history of gaming, the bug list must be the longest one this side of Fable 2... I could go on and on. SR2 is a worthy 7/10 if you ask me, I'm thankful I just borrowed a copy till completion.
And I found GTA to be more fun because the combat was actually half decent and not straight out of generic 3rd person shooting combat mechanics school circa 1998*. I reckon a fair few of these people who moan about GTA IV being "no fun" (please) are doing so because the game is so popular. How you could have "no fun" in GTA IV (and the Episodes as well, especially in fact) is beyond me. Oh noes it doesn't have jetpacks and insurance fraud missions, game is fail.
* I can do hyperbole too, though I still think it's not much better than Tomb Raider for instance
