I didn't expect much, but was glad I took the chance.
6 September 2013
Summary: Being considerably disappointed with Bioshock and Bioshock: Infinite, I decided to complete my run with Bioshock 2 in hopes of finding something I liked about the series. The multiplayer aspect was another deciding factor of me purchasing this game.I didn't expect much, but figured if I didn't like the story, at least the multiplayer component would be its' redeeming quality I could, sincerely, enjoy.
Summary: This is probably the best video game purchase I've made so far. Bioshock is a fantastic game. Bioshock 2 isn't quite as good as the first, but it is still stellar. Ultimate Rapture Edition allowed me to get them both at a great price, with added DLC's. The only thing I have to say is that they should call the DLC's what they are, instead of just saying bonus content. I played the first game without installing the bonus disk, because I didn't know what it was for.
Summary: It's hard to top the first Bioshock as it was such an original. However, this does come close. It's an amazing looking game on the 360 and really invokes atmosphere as you explore the city. Love the character leveling up also. Knocking off a star because sometimes, it doesn't really feel like you are free to do anything, the game certainly hurry's you along in the direction it wants you to go.
Summary: A great follow up to the first Bioshock. Overall, I enjoyed Bioshock 1 a bit more, but there were many aspects about Bioshock 2 that were really good. The combat system and mechanics is much better in Bioshock 2, and being a Big Daddy is awesome. The storyline is quite well done, but not as engrossing as Bioshock 1's storyline. Overall, it's a great game.
Summary: I loved everything about the game except for one thing: There aren't enough enemies. I mean the opponents are challenging and all but it kinda gets bland when your fighting the same boring people again. But overall I loved the game. It gave me an amazing feeling that not many games give me.
Summary: Bioshock is a solid game, it has an interesting storyline, fun gameplay, and a very satisfying payoff. It's not a short game at all, and takes a lot of time to complete, which is a good thing. Although I would say a con to Bioshock would be the gun system, as I don't find it the best first person shooter ever, but the variety of weapons and attack methods are there. The villains who attack you also become repetitive after a few hours, but that's just part of the game.
