The main concepts remain the same and they didn't add much besides a cell phone.
that's generally what all sequels are, game or movie. that's why as tough as it is for me to be in the industry and not play many games, my reasoning is why buy as you've clearly said "essentially the same game with better graphics and a different story".
this is why i do not buy madden, COD, or halo.
not to derail the topic, as i'm sure i already have, but echochrome is worth a look, if only for innovative purposes
