There is 11 years between these games, the difference is animation quality and physics are sometimes absurd. This reminds me of the case between Far Cry 5 vs Far Cry 2, Halo Reach vs Halo 4, or Crackdown 2 vs 3, gta 4 vs gta 5 and so on.
It's a shame most titles prioritize looks over the feel of a game. For example Far Fry 5 looks realistic, but Far Cry 2 is realistic. Big difference. It's like all the advanced coders moved away from game design.
