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: I bought this game at a low price for my pc and it installed perfectly everyone saying it doesn't install, is either your doing something wrong or you suck at putting discs in a comp. I have a okay comp and i can play the game with high graphics i recently got an alienware comp which is windows 7 and it still works perfectly. I don't know why it isnt work maybe your computers aren't good even if you have windows 7 doesn't mean its a great computer.
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.
Summary: Liked the original, this one has similar game play and a good story line. Graphics are visually stunning. Although the plasmids are the same, the non-elemental ones give better choices because of upgraded strenths. Cyclone allows double dipping by infusing the cyclone trap with any other plasmid. Swarm 3 is much more powerful than in the original, etc. Don't like that the keys are defaulted different from the original.
Summary: It is worth playing just on the story alone, weapons are nice, animations are pretty good, I guess my only complaint would be that it really doesn't bring to the table anything new in terms of graphics. It's pretty much the same visuals that Bioshock 1 had. Glad I didn't pay full price for it. Get it if under $25.
Summary: After I finally got the serial code to be accepted, it was an interesting game. I had seen advertisements for the newer version, and I wanted to play the original version first. Good choice. This is a fun game.
Summary: Entertaining and great graphics. Game tries to be a continuation of original BioShock but, alas, it fails. It is fun for a FPS but I wish I had skipped this one. Takes about 15-18 hours to reach the end. Not one that I would replay (like Far Cry 2, for instance). It may be different in MMP. I didn't try it.
Summary: I was intrigued with this game since BioShock 2's release back in Feb/10.I always wait(and wait and wait)until the price reaches a reasonable level before I buy my vid games and this finally came within my means and I snatched it;and I was not disappointed. Welcome to the world of Rapture.For you Bio Shock 1 players this is nothing new but this is my first Bio Shock experience and it is a fascinating place.It is an underwater city circa 1959(with music from the 30s and...
Bioshock 2 continues to be a enjoyable, weird and scary but not a lot has changed.

Excerpt: I remember buying the first Bioshock for a couple of £'s in a previous steam sale, and without a doubt I was not dissapointed. In case you haven't played the first one, Bioshock centers around the world of Rapture an underwater city corrupt by the use of special plasmids. While my first visit to Rapture had engaged me with a great introduction to the world, and the game played well with a spectacular storyline, this time it felt more like visiting an old friend.
