I found it to be an alright game but I was actually wanting it to be finished as I got closer to the end. There are not as many different items to pick up in this one and things that were active in the first game appear to have been forgotten in this one and have just become background scenery. I know it takes place after the first one so the place has deteriorated more but in my opinion it deteriorated to the point the game was kind of "blah".

Great game! Not quite as iconic as the first in the series, but still a highly recommended addition.

"Bioshock 2" is certainly a worthy follow-up to the original version. The story remains similar, but interesting nonetheless. This game has the ability to hold my attention for hours. I find it challenging, yet not so hard that it is impossible to clear the levels. The game continues to be rather eerie, made all the more so with the enemies jumping out from unexpected places, the old-fashioned music, and the background.

My only complaint would be that the graphics are a little basic compared to the outstanding ones that I've seen in recently released games.

Overall, a fun, challenging, exciting game, well worth adding to your collection.

Though there are not much twists as in Bioshock 1, which revealed the whole mystery of Rapture, through Jack's adventure, Bioshock 2 continues the story of the ruined city of Rapture in 1968. Anyway, this time, you play the role of the first Big Daddy, whose origins are slowly revealed throughout the game and who was also important in the conception of the Little sisters protectors. Not only that, you also have to deal with you own little sister's mother, who is not too happy to see that you are still alive. Through the game, you will meet old characters from the first game like Mrs. Tenenbaum, though for a very short time since she has to help other characters, whose adventures are DLC (downloadable content) through your XBoX 360.

All the locations in Bioshock 2 are new environments that have never been explored in the first game, so you're in for a treat with the locations' visuals. The game's atmosphere is still as scary as ever, especially as you haev to deal with a new kind of sister, a more dangerous one.

Finally, it would be important to know that your character's actions will have more of an impact in your ending than in the first one. So be careful if you want to play a good ending, or a neutral one, or a bad ending.

By the way, I have read on the internet, and I do not know if this is true or not, that Sheryl Lee, who played Laura Palmer in Twin Peaks, did some voices for a splicer who, around a fire, talks about Jack's fate. If it is true, then I wished they could have given her more roles in the game.

Bioshock 2 is a great followup to the classic Bioshock. Everything you loved about Bioshock returns in Bioshock 2 and then some. This time around your character is one of the first Big Daddys and he's been awakened after a number of years and has a BLANK to settle.

Visuals: Amazing and immersive visuals with a wonderfully dark and campy sensibility to them. This time around you are not limited to moving around within te city but can explore some underwater areas around the city as well. It's a nice touch.

Audio: Set in the 1950's this time you get a brilliant soundtrack of the era to go along with the adventure. As with the first game the creative selection of music really adds to the whole gaming experience.

Fighting: If you have played the first game you will have no problem pickng up where you left off with Bioshock 2. This time around you can duel wield plasmids in one hand with firearms in the other. You have loads of new plasmids and firearms to experiment with. The environment is reasonable destructible so it encourages you to leave no stone unturned in your quest.

Game Modes: The game has truly taken a step forward with the addition of multiplayer online gaming modes. The previous version was single player only. Anyone familiar with Call of Duty will have no problem becoming familiar with the multiplayer gaming modes in Bioshock 2 which includes Survival of the Fittest (Free for all), Civil War (Team Dethmatch) and Capture the Sister (Capture the Flag). You get a number of player types to choose from and customize/build on for these modes and maps are from the single player mode of the game.

Story: A compelling story but not as great as the original. Partly this is due to the fact that Bioshock was a groundbreaking game and it is REALLY hard to improve on that. The good news is Bioshock 2 is at least as good as the first (probably better) with the only drawback being that it cannot be as groundbreaking as the first for obvious reasons.

All in all a fantastic and worthwhile game with loads more playing time due to the multiplayer modes.

While a good game and very much in the Bioshock family, this games hacking mini game is boring, the item pickups through corpse looting and other added extras just don't add to the game in any meaningful way. They attempt to RPG an FPS but don't pull it off well. On the other hand, this is a fun addition to the Bioshock family which extends the story for the universe in a legitimate way, allowing you to learn more about the events that take place both before and after Bioshock. Playing a Big Daddy isn't quite as satisfying at i would have thought, but its still loads of fun.
