Is there a huge improvement in graphics and gameplay or is 2 more like a high quality expansion pack?

graphics are better but performance isn't exactly great. Gameplay is much the same although you use two powers at once instead of one. It's pretty much a more of the same kind of sequel.

graphic engine got a huge overhaul, but gameplay wise is largely dumped down that you won't even recognize it, upgrade option and the control of all power got nerfed into 1 button, meaning you can no longer do horizontal and vertical combo mix. you can pretty much spam to victory in all scenario.

What I can't really stand is P2 take the control out of the game, I don't know who made this "the simpler the better" decision, but it's just half of the quality the first one is.

better graphics but worse gameplay. Also the PC port is not very well optimised. Honestly I still think PT1 looks "ok" for an open world game. I'd play PT1 if you havent because its the better of the 2.

eh... i just played the first one threw a second time and started the second immediately after. admittedly, i'm not that far into the second one but so far i prefer the gameplay in the first one.... maybe it's just because i'm still in the beginning weak stages right after being mercer at his fullest. i also just don't care for the character in this one or the change in aesthetics. graphically speaking it looks better but design wise i think it looks goofy.
