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.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Slightly Lesser Flavour 18 Feb 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 4.0 out of 5 stars   
OK this is a review based on the game and not the DRM issues, Steam or the limited activitions. I disagree with all these things (except Steam which I personally find to be a superb service on the whole) and my thoughts regarding games publishers deciding how many times we can install and enjoy their games would'nt fit on the entire Amazon site. Just be aware that I am strictly against the idea. Anyway, having purchased and (agonisingly) download the game from Steam I am in a position to give an opinion based upon the actual game and not the issues surrounding it. So here goes.

The game is set 10 years after the ending of it's predesessor. After the downfall of Andrew Ryan and Fontaine, Psychologist Dr. Sofia Lamb has taken control of the under water city of Rapture. After wrestling control of her biological daughter Eleanor from the grasp of Big Daddy 'Delta' (who you will play as) she sets about controlling all the little sister's throughout Rapture. (sorry to anyone not following, go back and play Bioshock to understand my ramblings). At the start of the game Eleanor Lamb is now all grown up and wishes to be reaquainted with her Big Daddy and also stop her insane mother from destroying her beloved utopia. From this point onwards the events of Bioshock 2 take place and I would hate to ruin anyone's enjoyment by revealing parts of the plot, just know that although the story is not as strong as the original, it has enough twists & turns to entertain throughout the 8 or 9 hour playing time. However, my first complaint is of the prime antagonist (Dr Lamb), she is just not that prominant and her desires seem tame in comparison to Andrew Ryan's breath-taking plans.

4.0 out of 5 stars No serial number supplied with this purchase 11 April 2013
Platform for Display:PC|Verified Purchase
The game arrived quickly, new and sealed in cellophane wrapping.

Installation went smoothly on windows 7.

Unable to play online or sign into windows live to update the game automatically or record achievements as no serial number is supplied.

No update on the disk and had to manual search for the 160M file.

I emailed barcode bargains. and received the following reply.

"The game itself can be played by yourself as you will know without any further codes, and to access the online version this can be done simply by contacting the makers themselves
The details are below

The reason they did not add these codes in the box is because it was re-released item at a fantastic low price, hence the price you paid, and have introduced this way of getting the codes. It is a growing trend with older games that have been reissued, If you are ever unsure of this issue in the future for a game, feel free to email me and I will provide the answer for you" Alice barcode bargains.

This maybe true for old games, I don't know as I have not experienced it before, but as it's advertised as "Games for Windows LIVE" but not supplied with a code to access windows live I'm not over impressed.

Not explained in the text, but this edition has no manual and it therefore singleplayer only.

You cant get a code out of 2K as the seller suggested for multiplayer, they wont give you one.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent story. 20 Dec 2010
Platform for Display:PC
Fun: 5.0 out of 5 stars   
Had I written this review after my first day of playing it I would have given it 1 or 2 stars. I wasn't that impressed with the original Bioshock. I didn't like the big arrow constantly pointing you in the right direction, and the vita chambers kind of took away the whole sense of urgency you need in a game. However, I saw it was cheap so bought it owing to the lack of decent PC games about.

It didn't start well. Windows Live sucks, and needed to be updated about 3 times before it would allow me to play the game. As this involved a download and a reboot each time, it was a pain.

Then, for the first couple of hours, I found myself plodding around distinctly familiar locations. It was all very pretty on my rig, and ran very smoothly, but it all seemed, I don't know, dull? Had it not been for the fact that I had no other game to play. I might very well have given up after the first day. However, I read a review on here that said things picked up after the first main level was finished, so I decided to carry on.

Sure enough, things did pick up. You get the feel of your plasmids. Your get a couple of weapon upgrades, and you take out some Big Daddies. All of a sudden, you have a Big Sister to contend with. Then you get the feel of the whole game. Basically, its a series of big levels. On each level there are three little sisters, which you need to adopt or harvest. I chose the good path, of adoption. to adopt a little sister, you have to kill her big brother first. How you kill the Big Daddy is entirely up to you, and this is a big plus point to the game as you can be as creative as you want. There are a plethora of attack styles so you have no excuse to get bored in that department.
