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: Rapture Metro Pack Review for the XBOX360

 

You can't get it even if you REALLY, REALLY, REALLY try.

Added challenges; The new maps are great

if you can get them in your rotation; The multiplayer system kills this DLC's maps

BioShock 2

 

Many people have got into FPS (First-Person Shooters) due to games like Call of Duty and Medal of Honor, while I shied away from them due to not being interested in replaying war scenarios. While there have been other FPS titles that broke ware-base...

Bioshock 2 on Xbox 360

 

Why All the Daddy-On-Daddy Violence?

While all that is nice, the game itself lacks a bit of the “it” factor the original had. But for me, the series isn't about any of the main characters, but more about the city itself – it’s the story of Rapture, and how it ended up the way it is. I'd...

BioShock 2

 

One of the things I deal with when reviewing a game is my bias for or against a game. It's impossible to be completely neutral about something and even the best reviewers have their own pre-set opinions of a title before playing it. So when I tell if...

A sequel that surpasses the original. The folks at 2K have delivered a game with more emotional and intellectual punch than the original game although you might feel a bit dirty for enjoying the game so much.

BioShock 2 (X360) Review

 

Living under the pressure of the underwater original can be suffocating.

Core BioShock gameplay remains compelling and fun; lots of minor tweaks that improve the gameplay in subtle ways; very atmospheric with great presentation; excellent art design and graphics; multiplayer is fun; loads of plasmids and weapon/ammo...

Far more linear and repetitive than the first game was; story isn't nearly as interesting this time around and is hard to follow; the game plays it way too safe and takes zero risks; choices feel meaningless; a few minor visual glitches

Review: BioShock 2 for Xbox 360

 

1997's BioShock was a truly great game. It's mixture of story, environment, and great fundamentals left gamers little doubt that they were experiencing something special. It wasn't perfect-the moral choices had little actual consequence and the hacking...

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

 

is excellent. Gameplay wise, it is a huge improvement over the original, but at the same time it still falls short of the original. And then there is the multiplayer, which is surprisingly fun. Not as deep as the multiplayer you would get from Modern...

Great story; beautiful and haunting environments; excellent sound design, soundtrack, and voice acting; gameplay is overall a huge improvement over the original; fun multiplayer

The mystery found in the original game is lacking; Big Sister fights are poorly implemented; Little Sister gathering missions are still tedious
