Having played through the original Bioshock at least 4 times, I considered myself a huge fan of the game and was really looking forward to its sequel.
A lot of people have complained about the similarities between the two games, but for me, it was to be expected. The story, although not as fresh as the first for obvious reasons, was great and the gameplay is arguably improved.
Although I was not very impressed with the multiplayer, that was not the reason why I pre-ordered this game. Story was strong, gameplay was strong, and it was a blast to play as a Big Daddy.
Buy it and be prepared to lose plenty of hours playing it.
Nice detail enhances the mood, letting you truly feel this is a real cityscape you're going through.
The story may not be as thrilling but great weapons, powers and new tricks give the familiarity a boost.
Great from FX to voices and even background sounds seem perfectly real and natural, giving the experience more realism.
Lasting Appeal 7.5
The different endings can lead to different choices and ways to play as you also want to explore new facets of the plot.
Fun Factor 9.0
Whether blowing away Splicers or enjoying the nuances of the city and its history, you can't help but get sucked into a wild ride that'll keep you playing for hours.
Overall Rating 8.5
BioShock 2 is a beautiful and disturbing return to Rapture. Highly recommended game.
I am back to Rapture! This game is a blast and although it starts out kind of slow, the pace picks up not long afterwards. I feel more powerful and more ready to face "...them Big Daddies..." now that my one-two punch system is more efficient and time-saving (thus, life-saving). I have been saving my lil sisters so far and i'll kill 'em all later on my second playthrough...lol...but it doesn't matter to Big Sister as she is really angry!
Multiplayer is crazy fun but takes time to apply Bioshock's somewhat clunky/clumsy control...Honestly, this is the only plus-factor to this installment as to me, the first Bioshock is better story-wise with both being beautiful graphically and are engaging.
story: 8 (Bioshock 1 is better story-wise)
length: 9 (lots of things to explore...and splice!)
A.I.: 9.5 (they're fast and ain't so dumb...I tell you)
"...daddy, it's dancing!..." says the lil sister...I say, 2K, go on and dance you victory dance!
first of all let me say that this game rocks. the story is good but not as good as the first bioshock. you are the first model of the big daddy. i would say that you dont feel as strong as the big daddy you become in the first bioshock which is disappointing to me. the game has lots of replay value because you almost certaintly missed something the first time around. if you dont want to play the story mode a 2nd time (which i doubt) then you can play online with others. online is great. there are a few different game modes and fun leveling system that goes up to 40. dont worry there is going to be dlc content coming in march. there will be new maps, a new level cap to 50, additional single player content and other stuff. if you are a fan of the first bioshock then you will love this one as well.
this is one of the best story lines on a game you can play,it has 2 versions i have play'ed one version can't waite to play the other.
While being a big fan of Bioshock, this one just blew my mind. It surpassed all my expectations. This is a great game with a excellent history.
id heard that the second one was a bit of a let down, but i really enjoyed it. if you played the first game, i would definitely recommend picking this one up.
This game was included in my PS3 bundle (and now available for about $13) and i could not have been more happy. unlike some sequel games, this one does not require play of the first one (though I have read it helps) to play well through this one. with incredible upgrades and tons of weapons with available, this game has been hours upon hours of fun and it all seems fresh. nothing feels repetitive. I would recommend this game to any of my friends.
i liked it better then bioshock 1
I've had the first Bioshock for at least 2 years now and never really tried playing it.. I'm sure this one will bring me the same joy!
A fun game to play
I would recomend it only for it was cheap. (2/$30). You shuldn't pay more than that.
All the trama, scenarios, enemies, and foes are good defined. The story is great, the weapons and power are super. After to finish (I did it) I must to looking for the first one. This game attrap me waiting for another shoot of action, the options and the missions are well thinking. Are a great game with a good price. Ho! and the on line game are great too, if you like to hit or fire to other people on line this is your game. It's my game!
my nephew is a gamer and he found this game very hard to understand and he played the first 1
Was as ordered and shipped really fast!
Really fun game to play.
Great game, even if you haven't played Bioshock 1 I would still recommend it.
I started off playing Bioshock Infinite (Part 3.) And then made my way to 2, and it wasn't difficult
to follow at all. It has it's own distinctive story.
