Trivia

The Rumbler type of Big Daddy in this game is a revision of the SLOPRO Big Daddy which was cut from the first game. The initial concept for the character had the shoulder mounted cannon as seen in BioShock 2 but instead of being able to set up mini turrets, the SLOPRO held a massive hook which it used to perform lethal melee attacks.

[Diary entry for Dr. Sofia Lamb]
Dr. Sofia Lamb: In ethical psychiatry, we must account for...
[sound of tape being interrupted]
Young Eleanor Lamb: [giggle] Eleanor Lamb speaking. Mum says I'm not to play with the other children, because they're 'being raised on a diet of dog-eat-dog'. I wanted to see these dog-eaters... so I waited until Mum was gone... and went out to find one... and guess what? The dog eaters wear human skins... it makes them look just like us!

This Bioshock has the better plot, however the feel when you see Rapture for the first time just can not be recreated.
12 October 2011 | by See all my reviews

I won this game just recently and overall I enjoyed it about as much as the first. Like I say in the summary I enjoyed the plot better, however seeing Rapture for the first time is something that can not be recreated so while its plot was good the scenery largely remains the same. This one also really does not feature any big epic fights on par with the one in the previous game between yourself and Fontanie. This one is different though in that this time you are a Big Daddy who ten years prior was forced to kill yourself by the antagonist of the game Sophia Lamb while she reclaimed her daughter Eleanor. Well you wake up and Eleanor seems to be guiding you as you make your way through Rapture to rescue her. You see a familiar face and are also aided by a man named Sinclair who it was refreshing how his character played out. This Bioshock is a bit more linear than the previous incarnation, as in that one you could revisit previous levels, while in this one you go through an area and better have everything done before leaving as there is no chance to return. The combat largely remains the same as you have weapon in one hand and a plasmid in another. There are different weapons this time as you are a Big Daddy, and there are some interesting things to do, but the combat is essentially the same. Those you fight do not vary much either as you have the splicers and other Big Daddies, the most notable new entry is a new protector of the Little Sisters known as the Big Sisters. They are somewhat tough, but not overly so. So it is nice to revisit Rapture and see the sights once again while the plot is much improved. They just needed more new things to see and do to exceed the previous game.
