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. I bought it on sale cheap which was good. The game was not fun.
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 Windows Live, so that my laptop cannot be unplugged and taken anywhere without the battery going dead much faster because the CD ROM Drive needs to keep spinning while also...
Summary: Bioshock 1 hinted at beauty, even though it was the beauty amidst ruins. Bioshock 2 doesn't. It's just a depressing walk that gets more and more sad with many needless and sad deaths. I can't tell you too much, but the ending is depressing too and if you're someone who likes to win at the end of the story, sorry.. You have no chance to be much of a hero in this one as you could decide before. Twice you have to kill friends, and there's no real reason you should.
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 its predecessor - like being able to wield plasmids and weapons simultaneously, and some improved water effects.
Summary: I really didn't like this game. The original was amazing and this just seems like an add on. The game play is almost exactly the same and it feels like they wanted to squeeze more money out of the franchise without putting any extra thought into improving it. The original was superb, so why fix something that isn't broken (I hear you cry!) But this lacks the soul and spark of the original, more thought for Bio 3, PLEASE!?! ...
