Without spoiling too much of the original game, the story's main premise is a look at what could've happened if the rescue mission in S;G's true end hadn't succeeded, and the futures that could lead to another attempt succeeding. The main cast of the first game returns in some capacity or another, and a handful of new characters are introduced. For a large chunk of the story, the focus is on the concept of artificial intelligence and human memory. Each branch tells its own story, and in general they're more than just the branching endings of the original Steins;Gate.
While the game wraps up the story it set out to tell very nicely, it could've been more. At least one of the new character could've been scrapped without affecting the plot in any noticeable way, and others both new and old were included without much to do. Some interesting concepts are introduced, and then barely explored. One seemingly major development is mentioned early on, and in half the routes never gets brought up again; in the other it's only brought up enough to be a minor plot point, without exploring what should be major ramifications. There's just so much worldbuilding that could've been done, yet I clocked 100% completion at short of twenty hours.
I did enjoy the plot, but it largely just felt like most of the routes were there to pad out the main route, which in itself was a stretched-out adaptation of existing light novels and manga. The game itself didn't disappoint me, but large chunks screamed low-effort cash-in. Regardless, it still feels like a worthy entry into the series canon, and I don't regret having preordered it.
Overall I think I would say the frist one is a better story but if you liked it you definitely should get this game.
Seriously don't even consider playing this unless you have at least watched the anime adaptation of the first game, though I would recommend you play the first game too.
