If you haven't played the first one or checked out the in-game recap, the story will be much more interesting, as will be the game, since you will not know whose side Alex Mercer is in along with other things I don't want to spoil. Fortunately, I did no play the first until after I finished this one, therefore found this game to be very well made.
However, I can see why some people would be less interested if they have played the first one. It would take a lot of the mystery out of the story.
The only negatives I have about the game-play is the slightly repetitive missions (although it is funny to hear the main character point that out as well at the very least) and the targeting system.
If you have not played the first yet, then don't, but start with this one instead, and you will be satisfied. Honestly, it would have been better if Radical made this the first game and the other a prequel.… Expand

Yet, no game has ever been more broken and frustrating than this one. If I could, I would force the makers of the game to keep playing this game until they finish it as torture. There has been games that have made me want to throw a controller at the tv, but none that make me want to break the tv, console, and disc. Your avatar will run when still and go forward when leaning backward. This game, if anything is true, deserves an award. An award for most broken controls in Kinect's history. I'd be ashamed of approving this game if I worked for ABC. Whoever you are, sir or ma'am, I hope they at least paid you millions to smear your name for approving such an abhorrent game.
I write this review as despicably as I can in hopes that in future wipeout games, the problem will be either fixed or the games will no longer sell. Now all that's left is to test Wipeout 3, something I do not quite look forward too.… Expand
