[from trailer]
Dr. Sofia Lamb: For every choice, there is an echo, with each act we change the world. One man chose a city free of law and god, but others chose corruption, and so the city fell. If the world was reborn in your image, would it be paradise or perdition?

Big Bad Daddies are baaaaack! This time its personal!
17 March 2010 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Some may argue that the Graphics are not as nice in this installment of the Bioshock series, not true especially if you are using a 3d setup and this game is definitely geared for 3D. In the Graphics options menu there is an option for turning 3D on/off so perhaps the developers know or have an inkling of where future games are headed and indeed 3D will soon be appearing on our TV sets if the current Hype is to be believed. The current 3d gaming setups are limited in range. From Zalman to NVIDIA. Using an NVIDIA setup requires that you purchase a monitor with 120 Hz refresh rate (expensive) and TVs are on their way with this and much higher refresh rates. You will need at least $1000.00 for the glasses and monitor plus a very fast graphics card and a quick computer plenty of RAM and at least a dual core 2800 to get the most out of 3D. On to the game. The quest for ammo and money give you an added objective in this game which can be a bitch or a blessing depending on how you like your games. Some (like Borderlands, see my Borderlands review) shower you in money and weapons/ammo. In BioShock2 you are constantly scavenging for money to buy ammo or health kits. If you die without a health kit to spare you are mercilessly sent back to a re spawning station where you are given some health and Eve (Eve is your plasmid power). From there you have to backtrack to you objective and kill, Mame and destroy newly spawned enemies in the form of Splicers until you get back to where you were. Fairly linear in design but some nice tricks to keep you off the beaten track such as finding Adam (the necessary tender for purchasing upgrades to your special powers) with the help of a little sister who roosts on your shoulder whilst screaming platitudes like "your'e the best daddy ever!, and beating up other Big Daddies. Most sequels are a sad disappointment depending on the age gap. Take half-life and Doom 2 for instance, the sequels in both these cases were beyond unbelievably fantastic. In this instance most people would be expecting mediocre at best but they will be pleasantly surprised. 9 out of Ten little sisters in this level!!
