Good but couldn't live up to it's predecessor
Bioshock 2 is a very good game with sharper graphics then the first game but honestly thats all 2K improved on from the original Bioshock. Sure you get to play as a Big Daddy with a drill and many large weapons to your disposal as well as plasmids but don't you think you would be more of an unstoppable force? I found myself dying countless times to a group of thugs over and over again when i think i should be destroying them with ease. I mean remember the Big Daddy's from the original? They were hard to kill and you usually had to put many rounds into them before the died and you could claim the Little Sister. But playing as Subject Delta you don't feel as powerful as you should. Though I say this i thoroughly enjoyed playing Bioshock 2. The atmosphere of Rapture is even more beautiful and you have the opportunity to explore outside the walls of Rapture where you can find slugs that have Edon which give you points for your plasmid powers. The story of this sequel didn't have the same affect on me as the first one and this is the reason why. In Bioshock your character has lived a false life and in Rapture discovers who he really is while also taking down the baddies in Rapture. If you've played it you know what i mean. But in Bioshock 2 you play as a Big Daddy who throughout the game is trying to reclaim his Little Sister from her psychopathic mother. I felt underwhelmed from the story but it helps that the gameplay is just as superb as the original. But its as i said they didn't really improve on the gameplay so it didn't reach heights that i believed it should have. Though I have said many negative things in this review it really is a good game and shouldn't be missed. But, don't expect it to bury its predecessor in the dust.
this game is creepy in a good way kind of scary and fun to play I really like it and for the price its a must buy for any one who is thinking of getting it
One of the Best Games of All Time
This game is huge improvement over the first one. It may not have as much of a memorable story of the first game or the awesomeness of the first trip to rapture, but it greatly improves the gameplay, still has an emotional story, and is more fun and enjoyable. I highly recommend this game. My only real complaint is that the the graphics aren't as good as the first one and multiplayer is just average.
NOT A BAD GAME. THE ONLINE IS FUN AND IS STILL GOING STRONG. THE FEEL IS SMOOTH AND THIS GAME IS ORIGINAL ON ALL FRONTS. THE NEXT INSTALLMENT LOOKS GOOD. IMMA TRY IT OUT
Good but not the best
Don't get me wrong, I love this game but I love the first one more. To me Bioshock two was just one big DLC.
Bioshock 2: One of the most interesting games I've played to date. With a creative and motivational story of a Big Daddy searching for his long lost Little Sister, you actually WANT to find out what happens, not just the want to kill people with a giant drill and spear gun (those are fun too). Fantastic story, amazing gameplay with a variety of weapons and plasmids including insect swarm (my favorite) , great graphics even for 2012, and a high lasting appeal, this game makes for a fun and creepy experience unlike any other. PROS: Variety of weapons and plasmids, great story, great graphics, ability to explore and find items away from the storyline, and influential actions. CONS: no side quests, usually pretty darn hard (can be a pro for some people). Overall a great game!
This game improves over the game before it, Bioshock. Everything improves except for the graphics, which, take a step back from the original game. The graphics are pretty much the same as the graphics in Bioshock, except the graphics in Bioshock 2 looks unpolished. Other than that Bioshock 2 improves upon Bioshock. You can now have a plasmid and a gun equipped at the same time. It would've been cool if you could equip two guns at the same time or two plasmids at the same time, but you can't. The game is much more fun than Bioshock one. You can know adopt Little Sisters and you can get ADAM from bodies if you so wish. While the Little Sister collects ADAM you can protect her. It's fun at first but it eventually gets tiring. There's also a new boss type enemy called a Big Sister. They are a pain in the a-- to beat. Once again the horror aspect is missing. I did not get scared once, and the game is only a bit intense. Overall this game is fun to play and is a must buy!
A Game to try out
the games graphics are very good but it can get scary at some parts and a game that is just like this is fallout.
what the heck is this??????????
i have only one word for this: HORRIBLE. The overall game is awful, graphics are exceptable , but need work. story line sucks terribly. Weapons and charecters are weird and stupid. About the only good think about this game is the graphics, everything else look s like it came to the mind of a 2 month old baby, it is THAT terrible. I seriously advise u to NOT get this game, and if u do, u will regret it. I promise.
This is my favorite ps3 game i have. The story is pretty short but incredibly fun. The multiplayer is similar to call of duty in some ways and is a blast!
