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: Bioshock the original was wonderful, original, and full of a great story and fleshed out characters. I couldn't even be bothered to finish this game. The nemesis and enemies do not even measure up to the original. I see this as a step backwards. Hopefully the third will get it right.
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.
Summary: im only out $20 so im not burnt over it. just a lil frustrated. only gave it 2 eggs becouse GFWL messed everything up for me. im sure the game itself is good. but GFWL just PMO.
Pros: never got it installed.
Cons: Alot of tech problems from GFWL. never got to play it. running w7 64bit. i researched for 3 days and found many people have had problems with GFWL. verdict: you have to install ALL of the updates and ALL of the patchs manually. what a pain in the patoot. so i just sold it.
Summary: One of the most disappointing games I've played in a long time. It's not awful: the graphics are serviceable, and the combat mechanics are pretty good. However, it's a severe drop in quality from the original Bioshock.
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.
