Better than the first one in every way. The ability to climb basically anywhere is great and I spent way more time changing the color of outfits than I should have done.
Playtime ~60 hours.
The improvements from 3 are way bigger than I'd remembered:
The missions are generally better in this than 3 as well.
This game looks incredible but I think the biggest part of it is the resistance on the triggers; every weapon legitimately feels different.
This was a hell of a lot of fun. The ashtray maze was incredible, it reminded me of the Matrix lobby scene.
Need to give this 6 months to see if they add anything else. Right now it feels shallow and kind of boring.
This is really hard to get the hang of, especially with ~20 years of THPS muscle memory but once I did, I really enjoy just skating around.
Despite the similarities between this and Breath of the Wild, I really enjoy this (where I disliked BotW).
I hit some issues that needed a restart a couple of times and it doesn't have the polish of a "real" PS5 game but I had a ton of fun playing this.
This is a lot of fun and feels like if the Pokémon catching gameplay had actually progressed it the last 20 years. I have some issues with it (no fast travel, a lot of loading screens, mission design seems messy) but overall I enjoyed it.
The story definitely didn't go where I expected it to.
This is a really solid platformer with a lot of variety. The music levels are a particular highlight.
This is a lot shorter than the first game but that works in it's favour: no more sneaking as MJ or doing dumb circuit board puzzles.
This is a hell of a lot of run to play and is an excellent way to demonstrating what the DualSense can do.
I'd forgotten just how fun these games are and now I'm even more excited for the new one.
This is the perfect remaster. It's exactly like I remember it (it's not, the originals look terrible now) and adds a lot of modern touches that make sense and make this properly complete game. I'm going to be doing the challenges for a long time. The new soundtrack is incredible as well.
This is a big change from the first three. Way more goals and the difficulty it way higher.
This is a lot of fun, but I hope there's some more variation added soon otherwise it's gunna get old fast. There's also a lot of luck required in addition to skill, which can make it a bit frustrating. Also, fuck the match the fruit level, it sucks.
I really hope after the 1+2 remake we get a remake of this one (and 4).
This was really good and they nailed the UK vibe (even if it is a bit over-the-top at times).

Damn this was good. Definitely need to play through again and be a bastard this time.
I didn't enjoy the last mission, but otherwise a solid DLC chapter.
This is much harder than the main game and Screwball's stealth missions are really annoying.
Also, the Raimi suit came our while I was playing this chapter.
I still don't like the controls, but holy shit do Rockstar know how to make a good story.
Not as good as the main game but still pretty enjoyable.
I really enjoyed playing the three demo levels while in handheld but in docked mode, the motion controls are massively annoying; it'll be impossible for me to play like that. I'll still get the game, but it'll be handheld all the way.
I wasn't sure if I would like this game that much but it's a lot of fun.
I didn't actually finish this because I don't have the patience for the last tournament, but I thoroughly enjoyed the rest of the game.
Lots of problems with animation and frame rates, but the story and game mechanics are fascinating.
There is so much to do after the main story. I'm still annoyed about the required motion controls, but overall I loved this game.
This is going head-on against Jak and Daxter as my favourite platformer ever. Everything about this game oozes quality.
My only complaint is the requirement of motion controls for some sections of the game. Perhaps someone at Nintendo should have tried to complete the game without using them.
