I heard Second Sight has a longer and better story. But Psi-ops gets better review scores.

Whick one should i pick? Im leaning more towards SS.

If I were to get one, I would go for Psi-ops. I've played the demo and it has some of the best physics I've seen in a game to this day. Psi-ops also has great gameplay elements that let you play the levels multiple times having many outcomes.

I played the demo of Second Sight and that is was good. I own Psi-Ops and thought it was great. I think Psi-Ops would be a good pick up especially under $20.

Psi-Ops for sure. Even after you finish the main game there are like a billion little extra things you can do....

I've actually been considering getting either, as well.

The problem is, you can't really judge anything based on a review score, you need to get the whole picture. 

Those who've played either, state why you liked or disliked them.  I'd certainly like to find out what makes either so good or bad beyond "physics".  Cool physics really does a mont to little more than throwing corpses around for the sake of juvenile amusement.

Psi-Ops is much more action packed and fun. Second Sight has a more interesting story but can be frustrating at times. Both were good games, but if I were to replay one it would be Psi-Ops.

Not if you can use parts of the environment to fight you enemies. e.g you throw crates at them, or you crush a tree onto them, or you push a car into their way, etc. Physics are more than rag-doll-effects. :)

Psi-ops

Both games are unbelievably underrated, but Psi-Ops is the better buy of the two. Second Sight isn't that far off though.

Slight problem. This is hardly original, and anyone that played Deus Ex: Invisible War would know that.  Not to mention Crap-Life 2.

Psi-Ops by far, I was not that blown away by second sight, both equally underrated though.

Second Sight was like a mix between Sci Ops and Timesplitters. Sci Ops is slightly better but they're both great, it's not like an easily decisive decision.

Its the future, man!
And you can't really count Deus Ex: Invisible War because the physics were really bad, and you couldn't hurt people with it. You can throw crates around, but bashing a crate onto someones head doesn't hurt him. If you do it to friendly NPCs they won't even notice it. Great...
So apart from Halflife 2 you don't have a game that does it this way. I'd say that's pretty original... ;)
