  1. I think I will pass on this. I didn’t really like the first one as the game was overly brown and dim and the muscles were too much, as well as the cliche bromance story for the first bit. I have heard that the second’s story is better, however I can’t get over the bromance and muscles and the lack of a colorful color palate (when was it ok for games to be overly brown and lifeless?). This is all personal preference though.
