Amazon.co.uk Review

The original shocked the video gaming world by not only being a great first person shooter, but also an intelligent one. Now one of the greatest stories in interactive fiction is getting another chapter, with a sequel set ten years later.

The most literate first person shooter of 2007 returns
The multiplayer mode features a completely different story and even developer
Will you save the Little Sisters or exploit them?
As a Big Daddy you can now venture outside of Rapture and onto the sea floor

You play the original Big Daddy - a more independently minded prototype to the giant deep sea divers from the first game. The undersea world of Rapture has been taken over by the mysterious Big Sister, who has begun to kidnap children from coastal cities around the world.

A much larger range of plasmid powers are now available, as well as more standard weapons and the Big Daddy's iconic rivet gun and drill. The game's real conflict is emotional though, as you are once again forced to make a decision between sacrificing Little Sisters or protecting them and making your task even harder. Bioshock 2 will make you think, and not just about tactics.

Key Features
  • Atlas shrugged: The award-winning story-telling of Bioshock continues with a new hero and a new threat in the underwater dystopia of Rapture.
  • Evolve yourself: New plasmids, including new dual-wielded attacks, let you unleash amazing powers but at the cost of your humanity.
  • Cry Little Sister: As the first Big Daddy you are far faster than the other lumbering giants, but equipped with the same weapons and the ability to venture onto the ocean floor.
  • Big boss: Defend yourself against the constant attacks of Big Sister by setting up traps and ambushes, but always making sure you have an escape route!
  • Separate lives: For the first time Bioshock has its own multiplayer mode - featuring a completely different story and created by developer Digital Extremes (Unreal Tournament 2004).
About the Developer: 2K Marin
Although founded in 2007 specifically to create new, original games the first release from this Californian developer will be Bioshock 2. The studio is relatively small and designed to work with Take-Two's other developers, such as 2K Boston and 2K Australia in the case of Bioshock.

5.0 out of 5 stars A pleasant suprise 12 April 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
I absolutely loved the first Bioshock and thought that a sequel set in Rapture, albeit eight years later, was going to be far too similar to the first. Initially, my first reaction to the new game was just that. However, as I played the game and got deeper into it I began to really appreciate the differences made.

Firstly, the weapons are quite different, the most interesting addition perhaps being the drill. There is also the rivet gun and the spear gun. A funky new addition is the remote hacker, which is used to shoot darts at remote units to hack them, but can also deploy turrets to help defend areas. The shotgun makes a return but is still rubbish in my opinion although the special rounds are a little different and can be quite effective. Also returning is the machine gun (though more like a gatling gun), the rocket launcher and the research camera, although it works like a movie camera this time.

I loved actually playing as a Big Daddy. Of course the player in the first game had to turn himself into a Big Daddy, but this did not affect the gameplay at all. In the new game, you sound, move and attack like a Big Daddy should. It always spooks me a little when the Little Sisters refer to me as 'Daddy' and look at me lovingly with those vacant eyes, but it does make the player feel more like a Big Daddy. I like the fact that the player actaully takes the Sisters to 'angels' to extract Adam. It can be quite difficult fending off enemies in this process, but the turrets, rivet traps, rocket launcher mines and spear traps all come in handy.

I found the new hacking game so much better. The old one, where you had to rearrange pipes, was pretty fun to play but was so repetitive and time consuming, and after 50 hacks or so I began to hate those blasted pipes.

5.0 out of 5 stars Stunning!... Again! 3 Mar 2010
By Max VINE VOICE
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Bioshock 2 is another feast for those with a richer taste in gaming. I've read countless reviews that state it's perhaps a little too similar to its predecessor, which I can't understand as a negative. To me that's a huge positive, for those that loved the first, another dive into Rapture is something to be relished.

This is a completely new premise and plot though. Now you get to experience the might of the Big Daddy (with dual wielding plasmids and weapons). It's a heap of fun, and definitely more action packed than before. You'll be protecting the little sisters as you would have seen in the previous game. Your role is that of the first Big Daddy to be paired with a little sister, however it just so happens that little sister was no ordinary girl. Again the game has you digging deeper into it's rich story and eventually gives you another hugely rewarding ending.

The game play is much faster than before, more difficult with deadlier enemies (i.e, Big Sisters and upgraded Big Daddies). However to meet this your combat system is so much better than before. Tons of new plasmids, loads of weapons, the fun is finding which one's you like best. For me I love to send a swarm of bee's into the splicers then pin them to the wall with a spike. Not only that but there are times when you'll need to protect little sisters while they are harvesting Adam (the substance that makes your plasmids). Here you'll have to be smart and plant traps to defend your spot.

The graphics are once again amazing. Some of the locations aren't quite as interesting as the first game, but they're still very impressive.

Bioshock 2 also goes multiplayer with a fleshed out experience that utilizes the games frantic combat and espionage tactics.

4.0 out of 5 stars More of the Same 9 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I waited with some degree of excitement to play this game, as the original must rank of one the most innovative and enjoyable 360 shooters ever created. In this sequel, Rapture remains a great place to creep around, kill splicers and slowly build an arsenal of retro weapons alongside futuristic plasmids.

However, if we stack the vision required to create the original, covering its art deco aesthetic and pseudo-Randian philosophy, which laid the foundation for a frightening and anarchic post-utopian setting in which gamers could run wild , blow genetic mutants apart, and ultimately become one of them, this sequel doesn't really move the franchise forward much. It's fun, but the setting is essentially the same. A few new enemies and weapons are available, and the designers have picked a new philosophic bent around which to wrap the themes of the game which fits less comfortably in Rapture than that of the original game.

Don't let that stop you buying and enjoying the game, as I did. It's just that I came away feeling like this was a massive DLC add-on to the original instead of a fresh new turn on the incredibly inventive original.

4.0 out of 5 stars Well worth it for the price! 17 Feb 2011
Platform for Display:Xbox 360
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
I first got tempted by this 2nd installment after reading a review which praised the aesthetics of the game and the scenery just as much as the gameplay and storyline...and then seeing it on amazon for under a tenner, who could resist that when most other games are pushing £40 these days?! Having not played the first one cannot compare to that but has a really sinister vibe which I like and the landscapes are brilliantly intricate even when you're just walking around exploring. I've only given it 4 stars as the controls are taking a while to get used to (probably from playing too much COD) and so i tend to die alot, but a game of this standard for under 10 pounds is absolute robbery so would definitely recommend!
