BioShock 2 (Xbox 360)

 

When the city of Rapture was first unveiled, it was an underwater dystopia ravaged by civil war and self-destructive genetic manipulation. This strange and unforgettable world was also one of awe and wonder. Set nearly a decade after the events of its...

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...

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

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...

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...

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...
