While the story was pretty sweet in 3 and the boss battles were awesome. The game itself was pretty boring and had one of the worst menu systems I have ever seen. I mean having to change all of the camo every time you moved 10ft was very tedious. BUT as we said this is just our opinions in my opinion 2 was my favorite and the best even with the Raiden stuff
