The JK2 gameplay is so much better. I like the JK2 mods alot more then the JKA mods, there are some many cool things added in some of the mods. The fighting in JKA never got to me, it's just nothing compared to JK2.
I agree alot with ds615, the look doesn't matter, the gameplay does.
Well I guess there are different opinions, but in my opinion the JKA gameplay is NOTHING if comparing it to JK2. :]
