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.

 Stunning game, spectacular Special Edition!

| | See all Matty9's reviews (9)

The collection of items within the Special Edition is well worth the price.

You get a Vinyl Record which has the soundtrack of the first game

A CD of the Bioshock 2 soundtrack (which itunes recognises)

The art of Bioshock 2 Artbook which is very detailed and the art is amazing.

also 3 Lithograph posters from Bioshock 2 of in game Adverts.

And of course the game itself, of which the cover has a metallic sheen quality, which will make this stand out from your collection.

The game itself is very fun and frantic and full of atmosphere. The story is great and there are so many other stories you come across along the way.

Playing it on hard I found it really challenging, but in a good way, but the difficulty can be changed even mid game. Throughout the game you become more powerful and the last part is very heart pounding.

The multi player part is also really good, I'm not a massive fan of online game but this was easy to access and the first couple of levels unlock even more weapons and plasmids which encourage the player to continue player. There are a variety of other game modes and I would reccommend playing it.

Overall the Special Edition is very much worth the money, I'm glad I bought this instead of the normal edition because the contents are brilliant.

 Great value for a great game and a collector's item!!...

Great game!!! Great value for money!! Excellent!! As for the guy who's saying that the record is pointless and who's using record players these days....(apart from the avid vinyl record collector) DJs!!! Duh!!! As I happen to be one!!! lol...not saying that I will play this vinyl in a club but quite possibly sample it..Vinyl will never die...or at least is not dead yet!!.anyway ...the game is brilliant and this collector's game pack is excellent value for money!! :)

 Amazing game, amazing price.

At this price you must buy this game! The collectors edition contains a beautiful art book containing heaps and heaps of concept art presented very nicely. Also contains an LP that I cannot play but cirtainly looks the part and a CD with the game sound track on and some posters from the game, all presented in a great box with detail also seen in the game quite alot.

The game itself is amazing and can't give it enough praise. The gameplay at frist is almost a fight for survival I was running low on ammo, health and eve. The uh oh! a Big Sister appears and then the real fight for survival begins. Their is an eerie suspence in the game and it can be really quite challenging but ofcourse you can lower the dificulty at anytime through the options incase you arent a hardcore gamer. The main story really drew me in to the role and some of the abilitys you get are awesome and I am definately going to complete a second playthrough. The graphics on this game are great and hard to fault, they can suffer in multiplayer but only on rare occasion. One more thing to add, the ending really made me smile but I guess thats because I took the "good path" so to speak but I will stop their as to not spoil it.

The multiplayer is solid, you unlock new guns and plasmids as you progress that keep it fresh and their plenty of game modes and maps. The only nagative on the multiplayer is lagg can sometimes be experienced if playing out of your timezone for example I was playing at midnight UK and all the games I got into were lagging because it could only match me with people from the USA. Also some of the plasmids and weapons could benefit from some fine tuning. Everything about this game is great and at this price, you have to get it!
