Bioshock 2 Review

 

Arguably the most anticipated sequel this year.

So the question for everyone is whether or not Bioshock 2 lives up to the legend of its predecessor. The answer is no. Bioshock 1 changed how games can tell a story by bringing in philosophical undertones that translate to true moral decisions. It's...

It was a foregone conclusion that Bioshock was going to garner a sequel. The first title's release proved what gamers had been trying to tell the industry executives for years; high sales figures could still come from a title with an intellectual...

Was the return to Rapture worth it? Absolutely. Although the odds seemed stacked against the developers, having to do without both Ryan and Levine, they have delivered a rich, awesome trip through one the most fantastic video game environments ever...

Review: Bioshock 2 (PC)

 

It is a difficult task to create a sequel that can live up the last entry in the series, and even more so when that game is held to such high regard as Bioshock.  Bioshock took rarely discussed Ayn Rand topics and set them in a dystopia wasteland that...

In Bioshock 2, 2K Games has created a competent sequel to a game that needed no real sequel.  It is an enjoyable trip back to a familiar place.  You have a slow-paced story that really ramps up towards the end, and the new combat mechanics add a new...

Weapons and plasmids

Dual wielding weapons and Plasmids, Visuals and Audio are superb, Multiplayer increases replayability

Single player is largely the same as the original BioShock. Also some stability issues

To deal with the nasty inhabitants of Rapture, you are given a vast array of weaponry to choose from. Well, you start with one (the Big Daddy's famous drill) and will collect more along the way including a rivet gun, machine gun, shotgun and even a...

Meaning by choice.

Improved BioShock mechanics, fantastic atmosphere and story, new adam-gathering missions, better combat

Initially frustrating "Big Sister" fights; no villain is as iconic as Andrew Ryan

It's genuinely powerful stuff - and fascinating territory to explore within the context of a dystopian setting.

When BioShock first hit the Xbox360 back in the summer of 2007, many were left in awe by a stellar plot, original gameplay and great customization options, and above all, a gorgeous yet ultimately disturbing backdrop that was the underwater city of...

While it doesn't quite have the same penetrating, vivid experience as the original, BioShock 2 spins a thrilling tale of Sofia Lamb, "The Family," and their maniacal ideals of Utopian society. Multiplayer does have its' high points, but pales in...

Let's get this out of the way right off the bat; I'm a bit protective over the original Bioshock. Not only did I choose the game as the best of the last decade, I also referred to 2007's masterpiece as one of the most important games to ever be...

One of the best parts of both Bioshock games is exploring the world of Rapture and seeing what you find, but if you don't feel like exploring, the Cheat Happens Bioshock 2 trainer is for you. Seriously, how cool is it to gain all plasmids? Now that's...

For those who haven't visited the world of Rapture it's an undersea kingdom built in the Forties by one Andrew Ryan; an industrialist who felt that a modern utopia could be created away from the politics of the surface. Rapture then collapsed, and the...

Second installment, same as the first.

The trouble is that BioShock was already a complete work; even its last hour or two felt like overkill. So the sequel is a fine shooter, but not a thought-provoking one. The world of Rapture deserves a sequel along the lines of Fallout 3—one that...

When the original Bioshock was released in 2007, no one could have expected the level of praise it was destined to receive.  Heralded as one of the best single player experiences in gaming history, the game left some awfully big shoes that would need...
