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...

BioShock 2

 

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...

Improved combat ; Tight story ; Great atmosphere

Multiplayer lag ; Buggy in a few spots

The first Bioshock is now considered a modern classic, one of those games that took everyone by surprise with its’ amazing story and rich atmosphere. The second Bioshock is the sequel nobody wanted but we got anyway because it made sense on some...

BioShock 2: Minerva's Den Review

 

This add-on's great pacing and memorable story are excellent reasons to return to Rapture.

Intriguing story that comes to a surprising and poignant end ; Atmospheric visuals and sound effects really draw you in ; Fun combat is further energized by new weapons, plasmids, and enemies ; Great level design makes battles tense but never frustrating

Narrative structure is just like previous BioShock stories ; A few of BioShock 2's irritations continue to linger

Minerva's Den plays host to a few of BioShock 2's infrequent irritations. You commonly have a buzzing security drone or two at your side, but annoyingly, they still tend to flit out of range when you try to repair them. The typical BioShock texture...

BioShock 2: Minerva's Den

 

Some refreshing of the game's major mechanics or pacing could have spliced this DLC to the next level, but unfortunately its repetitive nature holds it back. If you are a sucker for Rapture lore, then Minerva's Den may yet be worth the $10

Bioshock 2: Minerva's Den Review for the PS3

 

I wish people could splice in common sense... (and buy this DLC!)

More BioShock 2 single player!; Very challenging enemies

No new plasmids or tonics

Does Bioshock 2 Make a Successful Return to Rapture?

 

Battle Big Daddies, Big Sisters and other members of the extremely dysfunctional Rapture family in the sequel to 2007 sleeper hit Bioshock.

Ben and I bring you another dual review where we weigh in on Bioshock 2 individually. Ben focuses on the actual game, such as its story, controls, and mechanics. Meanwhile I get technical and tell you that this game sounds absolutely amazing, but...

Bioshock 2 won't win any awards for its visuals, and maybe the sequel's story isn't as captivating as the first game. But for the most part, the sequel lives up to the original and fans of the original will still love every ounce of what this game has...

BioShock 2 Review

 

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.

BioShock 2 - PlayStation 3

 

Video Review: Second Verse, Same As The First.

The plasmids are all more or less the same as they were last time around, with only a few subtle changes to the way they actually level up. Powers purchased late in the game allow you to charge them up for more damage, or combine them with other...
