Summary: In my opinion, Bioshock 2 has the best gameplay in the series. It took the first game and refined what needed to be refined, fixed what needed to be fixed, and took out what needed to be taken out. The weapons are more fun, the enemies are more varied, and there are just so many way to play. Story wise, it's nothing special but by no means is it bad. The story was good enough to keep me interested but was admittedly predictable and forgettable.
Summary: It was as good as the first Bioshock, and the only downside was the multiplayer. I heard it was bad, but I didn't even get to play it to experience it for myself. The campaign more than made up for it, though.
Summary: THIS IS A GREAT FIRST SHOOTER GAME. A SEQUEAL TO BIOSHOCK THE GAMEPLAY HAS BEEN UPDATED AND IMPROVED. USE OF PLASMIDS, WEAPONS, AND HACKING ARE MUCH SMOOTHER. BEAWRE HOWEVER THAT YOU MUST OPEN A WINDOWS LIVE ACCOUNT, WHICH IS FREE, IN ORDER FOR THE GAME TO SAVE AND WORK CORRECTLY EVEN IN SINGLE PLAYER. THIS MAKES INSTALLATION A PAIN AND TIME CONSUMING.
Summary: One thing I really like about the game is the retro look, like with the first BioShock game, the animation is very retro feeling in the way the game looks and plays, not to mention the music. The huge down side to the game is fact that the Microsoft Games for Windows Marketplace forced an update that keeps causing it to force close, when I'm able to play it for more than 5 minutes, I'm very content.
Summary: The original Bioshock was masterful for many reasons. The game world was fantastic and yet somewhat plausible, and it was assisted by being one of the first Unreal Engine 3 games. It was all tied together by an emphasis on Ayn Rand's philosophy. The philosophy gives a coherence behind the game world, which makes it more believable and immersive. the main enemy, splicers, are kind of like the end result of Ayn Rand's philosophy of selfishness being a virtue.
Summary: I picked this up for a whole $10 when I was first putting together my gaming rig. For me the game was really hard, but like I said this was really the first game I've ever played on PC besides WoW or Starcraft 2 so I think I still have some getting used to in terms of using a keyboard and mouse. The story line was pretty good, but not everything made sense to me.
Fun game, familar but fun environs, interesting story

Summary: I liked the realistic depiction about what would happen if a place without law or God was actually built. The game is kind of gory, which can be a bonus or negative. The settings although familiar and lost some of it's sheen is still interesting. The story is interesting, and allowed the setting of rapture to end.
