Summary: This game is simply ok. It's not a great follow up and I do not recommend it. Pros (improvements over Bioshock 1): 1. You are armed with a plasmid and weapon simultaneously instead of having to switch back and forth between them. 2. New weapon and plasmid options. 3. Simplified gene tonics from three categories (combat, physical, engineering) down to just one. Cons (diminishments from Bioshock 1): 1.
Summary: note: this review applies only to the campaign. i never tried multi-player. it's a fully competent shooter, with all of the individual elements that made the first game an instant classic, but somehow they just don't add up the same experience. it is incredibly rare that i don't play a game through to completion, but this one i abandoned a little less than halfway through.
Summary: Playing Bioshock 2 years after playing the first one meant that coming back to Rapture was a little refreshing at first. Seeing the environments, learning more and more about the history and lore of Rapture, getting a handle on the gameplay elements slightly improved on from the first title, and seeing the new things that the sequel has to offer were what made this game worth playing. But there are some things that still make this a little of a bland title.
Summary: I would say bioshock is one of my fave storylines this generation of gaming. Rapture is one hellish wonderland. Dark tight corridors and mutated tweakers set in a 1940~1950 steam punk world... Its like the carmel on a sunday. Sadly I gave this a 3 because my main reasons to buy it where: its on a disk and the muesem.
Summary: I finally got around to playing the first Bioshock just a few months ago, and it's quickly become one of my favorite games of this console generation. It had atmosphere, an interesting story, incredible art direction and character designs, and it was just plain fun to play. Even my daughter had fun watching me play it, and she fell in love with the Big Daddies and Little Sisters. So getting the sequel here was a given. The game started off just fine for me.
Summary: To me this game didn't live up to the hype and the greatness the first game had. I felt that the single player was way too short and felt liked it was second to multiplayer, which is idiotic since the first game did great with only single player. Oh and backtracking is taken out, so if you missed something, than you have to start over if you want it. The story is decent, but doesn't compare to the first game.
Summary: I thought when I ordered this game that I would be receiving the shown version. Instead, I received the greatest hits version! I could have bought it myself for cheaper on black Friday at Best Buy! Frustrating!
Summary: I have read on the review that it was a good game.It is an 'OK' game. It took me a while to understand it and it is kind of weird. The animation are very poor. As a scuba diver i was really disappointed by the view of the ocean.
