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 has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. You are the very first Big Daddy as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city, chasing an unseen foe in search of answers and your own survival.

Multiplayer in BioShock 2 provides a rich prequel experience that expands the award-winning BioShock gameplay. Set during the fall of Rapture, players assume the role of a Plasmid test subject in the underwater city that was first explored in the original BioShock. Players will need to use all the elements of the game's toolset to survive as the full depth of the BioShock experience is refined and transformed into a unique multiplayer experience that can only be found in Rapture.

 No GAMEPAD Support !

| | See all dimitris72's reviews (1)

For lazy couch potatoes like me, who like to game on a HDTV or a projector with a wireless gamepad, this game is no good, as it does not support gamepads at all !

The developer company stated that they won't give any gamepad support for this title in the future.

The epic Bioshock 1 was a perfect game, this one I have pre-ordered and won't play, what a bummer...

 The Perfect Sequel

This game really does deserve 5 stars. If you liked the first one you will love this. The story is good, not as good as the first but what sequel is? and the gameplay is magnificent! There are sooo many plasmids to choose and upgrade and with dual wield it is perfected. I personally love the multiplayer, it's fun, not too serious but deffinately worth a try! The artistic environments are just as beautiful as in the first game and you really feel like your there when you play it! Simply beautiful, i cannot say more.

 Does it's predecessor proud.

I loved the first game it had a great story line and a fun game play as well as fantastic graphics. Bioshock 2 gives you a healthy dose of the same. Playing as a big daddy isn't as easy as it sounds, the creators have made sure that you can't just run around like the terminator killing every one with easy, you really have to look out for your health.
You have to really listen to the story line to understand it but it follows on from the original well without you having to remember or look back on the old game.
The graphics are amazing and the underwater parts are to be admired.
On the multi-player I would recommend turning the graphics down as even tho I can play the game on max graphics in multi-player I had some graphical lag. Apart from that the multi-payer works very well and has so great special features to keep you going.
Defiantly worth getting if you like the original or just a really good shooter with a twist.

 bioshock 2 nutshell review

| | See all adamc1988's reviews (22)

First of all i'd just like to say that if you haven't played through the first Bioshock game to do so as soon as possible before you buy this otherwise you'l be completely unaware of where you are, what you are and pretty much just whats going on around you. The first Bioshock game was fantastic, and Bioshock2 is a very worthy sequal.

Without making any spoilers the game takes place years after the first, and essentially puts you in the shoes of a prototype 'Big Daddy', the hulking sea-diver/cyborg-like abominations from the first game. You are subject 'Delta', a big daddy who has broken free from the control of its master, and woken to find your 'little sister' is missing. The prototype that you are, you have a special lifelong 'bond' to your little sister, and one of the primary goals of the game is to evidently be re-united with yours and help bring down the new tyrant of Rapture, Sophia Lamb, in the process. The story isnt quite as involving and interesting as the first game, but is is nevertheless very well told and keeps you wanting to continue on through the action to reach the end. The combat however is vastly improved and you can now use plasmids (the various genetical enhancements gained throughout the game), along with various weapons both at the same time. There are some fun weapons to be had including a gatling gun, torpedo gun that pins enemies to walls, double barrelled shotgun and more. All of these weapons can be upgraded one upgrade at a time from specific upgrade stations along the way. Upgrades include clip size, damage increase etc, and when an upgrade is applied, the model of the weapon changes accordingly. E.g. increasing the ammo capacity of the shotgun applies 2 extra barrels on the sides of the shotgun which looks neat.

The graphics in Bioshock2 are on the same engine (the Unreal3 engine), but look much more glossy, detailed and refined than in the previous game. I am running this on a fairly average price Geforce GTX 260, a duel core Intel Core2 Duo, and 4GB ram yet im able to play on high settings, max resolution with no slowdown whatsoever.

The sound is also top notch. You can hear splicers (the deformed citizens of rapture) talking amongst themselves before being engaged, the weapons sound cool, the music builds good atmosphere etc etc.

I have yet to check out the multiplayer because im so caught up in the single player still, but have heard it is pretty generic and wont hold people for too long. But i wont acknowledge this as a credible fault since i only really got this for its engrossing singleplayer.

Overall this is an essential purchase for shooter fans who like a bit more to their games than mindless shooting or generic style shooters.
