Bioshock 2: Reviewed (360, PS3)

mature-gaming.com
7 September 2013
  • Excerpt: In 2007, a sleeping giant awoke.  The game’s name was Bioshock who opened it’s eyes, stretched out it’s arms, picked us up and threw us into the beautiful, yet eerie underwater world of Rapture. What could have been yet another fps style adventure had been a masterclass in videogame design as it plucked away at your emotional and moral senses to deliver one of the stand out games of the decade.

BioShock 2 Xbox 360 Review

Console Obsession
29 May 2010
  • Excerpt: For me, BioShock was a game that was really defined by its extraordinary world. The underwater city of Rapture was a brilliantly realised environment that was a pleasure to explore and plunder, and was all the more immersive thanks to its beautifully unique art style. But the game itself also had elements that divided opinion, and, for me, it wasn’t quite on the same level as its aquatic city.

BioShock 2

Strategy Informer
24 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Bioshock 2 is an admirable experience, one that doesn't compare to the narrative of its predecessor, but carries forth the fun gameplay that was originally inspired some two years ago. The addition of multiplayer gives us all the more reason to keep playing after completing the 13-15 hour campaign, though conflicting design choices keep Bioshock 2 from succeeding and ultimately stepping out of the shadow of the original.

Bioshock 2

Square-Go
10 May 2010
  • Excerpt: For those who haven’t visited the world of Rapture it’s an undersea kingdom built in the Forties by one Andrew Ryan; an industrialist who felt that a modern utopia could be created away from the politics of the surface. Rapture then collapsed, and the player is thrust into a dystopian nightmare where humans, now known as Splicers, have become mutated by gene splicing and plasmids which provide them with interesting powers.

Test Bioshock 2

Generation NT
4 May 2010
  • Conclusion: Bioshock 2 est une nouvelle fois équipé du Unreal Engine 3, un moteur excessivement bien exploité. Ce sont surtout les artistes qui ont fait preuve d’une grande imagination en donnant naissance à des environnements impressionnants et menaçants à la fois. Techniquement, le titre alterne entre textures bonnes et très moyennes. Les effets spéciaux rattrapent ces errements texturaux au même titre que l’univers sonore quasi-parfait.
  • Pros: L'inspiration artistique, L'ambiance sonore, Le multi-joueurs
  • Cons: Textures parfois limites, Manque d'innovations, Trop bourrin

BioShock 2: Rapture Metro Pack

Game Vortex
19 April 2010
  • Excerpt: I'm starting to notice a trend involving BioShock 2 DLC and player complaints. After the Sinclair Solutions Tester Pack dust up, the latest DLC pack, Bioshock 2: Rapture Metro Pack , seems to be causing a stir of its own. In the case of BioShock 2: Rapture Metro Pack , the issue involves access to the six new multiplayer maps. Even if you buy them, there's a chance you won't get to play them.

Bioshock 2

  • Excerpt: The original Bioshock was an amazing achievement in visual design and story-telling, unfortunately I didn’t care a ton for the gameplay as I found it too repetitive and too dependent on searching every single item to keep me interested after the ‘newness’ of the game wore off. Enter Bioshock 2 and the premise of playing as a Big Daddy. This definitely renewed my interest in Rapture for me. So how does Bioshock 2 fare? Honestly?

Review: BioShock 2 (360)

Lawrence.com
18 February 2010
  • Excerpt: The original BioShock’s biggest selling point was its story – a tale of one man’s vision being ruined by human greed and treachery. Set eight years after the events of the original, you take the role of a prototype Big Daddy, a diving suit-clad behemoth designated Subject Delta. After being forcefully separated earlier in the game, Delta is seeking out his missing Little Sister, Eleanor, who continually contacts him using their psychic bond.

Bioshock 2 Review (X360)

Gamers Daily News
18 February 2010
  • Summary: Good story, streamlined combat and great multiplayer. However, a freezing glitch and some really bad balancing choices pull the pacing and thus entire experience down.
