Great game hot
In the first game you could feel the danger and knew when you were being shot at, not so in the second game. Too many different charachters made it almost impossible to tell whos who. It was a total unbalanced mess at launch and hasnt improved much. The Rose .... dont get me started on the Rose :) The first game is still going strong online in Gardens and Graveyards with some VERY good players on all formats I do like the Herbal Assault idea for the plants to attack but gnomes,goats and cats made the game pretty awful... in my opinion of course. :)
I preferred the simplicity of the multiplayer in the first game compared to this game. Each to their own.
How do extras detract from the core
I’ve got to agree with Budgio. The second one feels like they added too many new features which weren’t needed.
