Product Description

From Amazon.ca

Follow-up to BioShock, 2K Games critically acclaimed and commercially successful 2007 release, BioShock 2 is a first-person shooter set in the fictional underwater city of Rapture. As in the original game, BioShock 2 features a blend of fast-paced action, exploration and puzzle-solving as players follow varying paths through the overarching storyline based on the decisions that they are forced to make at various points in the game. In addition to a further fleshing out of the franchise's popular storyline, players can look forward to new characters, game mechanics, weapons, locations and a multiplayer game option.

The Story
Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster--somehow familiar, yet still quite different from anything ever seen--has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city. It is a Big Sister, a new denizen of Rapture who was once one of the forgotten little girls known as Little Sisters who previously inhabited the city's dank halls.

No longer a pawn used to harvest ADAM, the dangerously powerful lifeblood of Rapture, from the bodies of others and in turn run the risk of being harvested herself, the Big Sister is now the fastest and most powerful thing in Rapture. You, on the other hand are the very first Big Daddy, similar to the Big Daddies familiar from the original BioShock, but also very different. The question is as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city beneath the waves, hunting for answers and the solution to your own survival, are you really the hunter or the hunted?

Gameplay
Although full gameplay details have yet to be released, is is known that in BioShock 2 players will take on the role of the original Big Daddy, not that of the original series protagonist, Jack. As a Big Daddy you will have access to most, if not all the strengths and weapons of a standard Big Daddy, as well as others such as free will and a new relationship to Little Sisters that although allowing for the familiar choice as to whether to harvest or adopt them, creates a different dynamic between characters. In addition, the game will feature new plasmids, weapons, the ability to combine these two and much anticipated multiplayer modes including: Free-for-all, and Team Death Match.

Key Features

  • The Big Sister - No longer just something to be harvested or not, the Big Sister is the most powerful resident in Rapture.
  • You Are the Big Daddy - Take control with the original prototype Big Daddy, and experience the power and raw strength of Rapture’s most feared denizens as you battle powerful new enemies.
  • New Plasmids - New plasmids such as "Aero Dash" allowing for bursts of speed over short distances, and "Geyser Trap" a stream of water used as a jump pad and electrical conductor, join the ample list of Plasmids from the original game.
  • New Game Mechanics - BioShock 2 contains many new gameplay mechanics. Just a few of these are: the ability to wield plasmids and weapons simultaneously; flashback missions detailing how you became the Big Daddy; the ability to walk outside the airlocks of Rapture to discover new play areas, and many more.
  • New Locations - Just a few of the locations and environments debuting in BioShock 2 are Fontaine Futuristics, headquarters of Fontaine's business empire and the Kashmir Restaurant.
  • Evolution of the Genetically Enhanced Shooter - Innovative advances bring new depth and dimension to each encounter, allowing players to create exciting combinations to fit their style of gameplay.
  • Return to Rapture - Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the story continues with an epic, more intense journey through one of the most captivating and terrifying fictional worlds ever created.
  • Genetically Enhanced Multiplayer - Earn experience points during gameplay to earn access to new weapons, plasmids and tonics that can be used to create hundreds of different combinations.
  • Experience Rapture’s Civil War - Players will step into the shoes of Rapture's citizens and take direct part in the civil war that tore Rapture apart.
  • See Rapture Before the Fall - Experience Rapture before it was reclaimed by the ocean and engage in combat over iconic environments in locations such as Kashmir Restaurant and Mercury Suites, all of which have been reworked from the ground up for multiplayer.

Only one sentence to describe this:

If you're going to play this game, play it on consoles, or face the frustration and disappointment.

1.0 out of 5 stars FIFTEEN BOTTLES OF ADAM ON THE WALL... Feb. 9 2010
By NeuroSplicer HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Fun: 1.0 out of 5 stars   
(I think I am having a very strong instance of deja-vu...We have we been here before, haven't we?)

Now, I want to make it clear from the start that this is primarily a Warning Review, focusing on little or non advertised facts on BIOSHOCK 2. Nevertheless, my points on the game design and gameplay follow. But first things first:

FACT 1 (UNDISCLOSED):
The game requires Internet Connection to install and play because it HAS TO BE ACTIVATED. This is nowhere to be found in the Amazon product description so be warned, you will not be able to install and play this game on a PC that cannot access the internet. This is more serious than it seems (please read on).

FACT 2 (LITTLE ADVERTISED):
BIOSHOCK 2 requires you to setup an OnLine WindowsLIVE Account in order to save the game, claim achievements and auto-update. However, similarly to Fallout 3, it is also possible to create and use an OffLine WindowLIVE account. So, this is not a major worry - unless achievements is important for your enjoyment of course. In that case, you will have to be OnLine to play even a Single-Player session.

FACT 3 (UNDISCLOSED):
This game comes with an INSTALLATION LIMIT. Some would argue that a limit of fifteen installations is large enough for anyone. I, on the other hand, would argue that the length of the chain is of little importance, as long it stays attached to one's leg. Any limit on the number of installations makes BIOSHOCK 2 a rent-a-game. For good reason.

The ACTIVATION REQUIREMENT together with the LIMITED INSTALLATIONS mean that the copy of this game that you paid full price for, well,...never actually becomes yours.

1.0 out of 5 stars Is this really neccessary just to have fun? Feb. 15 2010
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I don't consider myself to be an avid gamer, but I actually bought Bioshock 2 on its release date; I just simply had to have the sequel to the greatest game I've played in recent memory.

However, upon my initial attempt to enjoy my promising purchase, I was prompted to 'SIGN IN TO YOUR WINDOWS - LIVE ACCOUNT' which caught me unawares. Apparently, in order to even play the single player mode (which, I'm guessing, is why most people actually bought the game), I still had to log in to Windows Live, whatever that is... after a minor tantrum brought on my the simple urge to have immediate satisfaction, I begrudgingly complied to sign up for Windows Live. To my astonishment, it seemed I already had an account, though I couldn't understand how that could be, until I realized that Windows Live and the antiquated Windows Messenger were actually related; the account was basically my MSN password along with my email adress. Neat.

After spending admittedly very little time finding a username that didn't exist, which I was forced into doing even though I didn't care, I was finally able to make one and continue on through the laborious process which I loathed so. My behavior had by now deteriorated rapidly into a screaming mad state, pounding my fists upon my arm rests and swearing loudly at my screen, as if to rationalize with the soulless entity that is Microsoft, exclaiming "I only want to play the ****ing game!"

Now, here's the real juicy bit... after finalizing the obscenely unacceptable process, I was finally able to play the game, which was quite fun (especially as the game went on).

4.0 out of 5 stars A wonderful,wonderful game! Aug. 19 2011
By Robert Badgley TOP 500 REVIEWER
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I was intrigued with this game since BioShock 2's release back in Feb/10.I always wait(and wait and wait)until the price reaches a reasonable level before I buy my vid games and this finally came within my means and I snatched it;and I was not disappointed.
Welcome to the world of Rapture.For you Bio Shock 1 players this is nothing new but this is my first Bio Shock experience and it is a fascinating place.It is an underwater city circa 1959(with music from the 30s and 40s playing at the menu boards by the likes of the Mills Brothers,Artie Shaw,Django Reinhardt and many more.It's a retro futuristic place and the citizens have for the most part all gone mad trying to "evolve";thus hastening its' ultimate downfall.There is one woman who led the city in its' mad rush to evolve and it is her you must find,but the trip my friends will not be an easy one.You become the character of Big Daddy(pictured on the game cover in the old diving suit)who was once a citizen of the city but who was changed long ago into this form to walk through its' buildings to help harvest and collect Adam;the stuff dreams are made of,kid!
There are others like him/you and accompanying them/you are little sisters(again see the game cover and the little girl) who harvests the substance for your collection.In your quest to find the ersatz leader of Rapture you must do battle with a plethora of mutants and others like yourself in order to replenish your own Adam to create plasmids and tonics which in turn help power your vast weaponry.Also you will have the opportunity,many times,to either kill or let your victim go.You will also ultimately confront the big dark secret of Rapture,with quite an astounding twist and decision at the end.
The graphics here are fabulous.
