Summary: Bioshock 2 was buggy and took some effort to run. It would not run under dx10, only dx9(Windows 10). The gameplay was ok, but too short and not challenging enough. I wouldn't of bought this if I knew how hard it was to get to run. There are no returns for digital media.
Summary: I deleted the game after about 1/2 hour. Walking around staring out a helmet face plate was too boring and limiting. Plus the UI was dirt slow. The action sequences also were repetitive From what little I played it was no where near the quality of the original.
Summary: Okay, so I bought this awesome looking game along with four other awesome games, problem is that out of the five awesome games that I bought, this single awesome game Bioshock 2 must stay in the CD ROM Drive and keep it occupied and spinning while playing this awesome game, while also connected to...
Summary: Installation was problematic on Win 7 x64. Machine is higher-end, 16GB/500GB hd/1GB ram HD video. Did not prefer connection to Steam. Returned/refunded product code, re-ordered DVD copy, removed Steam files/account, installed ok from physical media correctly.
Short and dumbed-down FPS - not worthy of the name "Bioshock"

Summary: I just finished playing Bioshock II (BSII) and I must say, after playing and loving Bioshock I (BSI), this was a disappointing experience. The story line takes place 10 years after the events in the first game and makes references to the events that occur there.
Summary: You get the impression that the developers really wanted to get back at users for something. First, the DRM on this game is a pain, requiring an active connection to play unless you don't mind losing all your progress every time you stop playing. Next, the game is short. Very short.
Summary: I am a huge fan of the original Bioshock and by no means expected the followup to meet or exceed the previous high standards. I expected a fun game that reminded me of the brilliance of the first.
Summary: The bottom line is this: They shipped a severely broken game. The creators claimed to have dropped controller support to focus on making the mouse/keyboard controls shine. I have no problem with lack of controller support, but the mouse sensitivity is through the roof. Very not cool.
Feels more like an expansion pack than anything else.

Summary: Taken in tiny chunks Bioshock 2 is, on a purely superficial level, almost indistinguishable from the first game. The graphics and fast-twitch combat are just as good as the first game, it's a competent shooter with an inherently cool setting, and it does make a handful of tangible improvements over...
