Did You Know?


Series creator and writer of the first BioShock and BioShock: Infintie Ken Levine was not involved with BioShock 2. This led to some contradictions to the previously established continuity. For example BioShock 2's antagonist Sofia Lamb is said to have been a big political figure in Rapture and almost overthrew Andrew Ryan of his power, but it's specifically said in the first game that the only person to ever challenge Ryan's power was Frank Fontaine.

Lacks story, but every thing else is great.
22 February 2013 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This game may not be as ground breaking and awesome as Bioshock 1, but it is still a fantastic game. The atmosphere this time around surpasses the original, it truly does immerse you in this world. I bought this game three times, one for the Xbox and twice for the PS3, one of which was the special edition. Alright time to get started.

The Game: The first thing I noticed right out of the gate is the graphics are much more clear and better done. The story was pretty weak, but the rest of the game more than makes up for it. The game play is much better this time around, it's much more fluent. You can equip a weapon and a plasmid at the same time. I didn't notice a big difference in quality between systems, they are about even. My favourite gun in the game is the shotgun, you can upgrade it with cylinders for rapid firing. The spear gun is also pretty cool, it almost feels like a rifle. The sound track is no where near as good as the one in the first game, which was very disappointing. As i've mentioned the atmosphere surpasses the original, there is one part where you enter a secret facility, it feels so barren, like no one has entered it for a while, it is truly a great feeling moment. The hard difficulty mode was actually pretty easy compared to the first game's hard mode. Finding all of the audio diaries was much easier this time around, I even completed that objective twice. The big sisters are more of a nuisance, but I found a way to help the little sisters without having to fight the big sisters. It's weird to be carrying around a little sister thats looks up to the big daddy, it makes you choose not to harvest them. The level's are expertly designed with plenty of hidden areas to discover. Overall the single player is a great experience.

The multi-player: I don't have much to say other than I didn't like it, I felt they could have left it out and put more stuff into the single player. Overall it's forgettable.

Minerva's Den: If you liked the main single player then I recommend getting this, it's a good addition. Just don't expect a good end boss, you can beat him pretty quickly.

The verdict: The game is fun and well worth your time and money, the single player has great replay value, but skip the online mode.
