Product description

Follow-up to BioShock, 2K Games' critically acclaimed and commercially successful 2007 release, BioShock 2 is a first-person shooter set in the fictional underwater city of Rapture. As in the original game, BioShock 2 features a blend of fast-paced action, exploration and puzzle-solving as players follow varying paths through the overarching storyline based on the decisions that they are forced to make at various points in the game. In addition to a further fleshing out of the franchise's popular storyline, players can look forward to new characters, game mechanics, weapons, locations and a series first, multiplayer game options.

Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster — somehow familiar, yet still quite different from anything ever seen — has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city. It is a Big Sister, new denizens of Rapture who were once one of the forgotten little girls known as Little Sisters, known to inhabit the city's dank halls. No longer a pawn used to harvest ADAM, the dangerously powerful gene-altering lifeblood of Rapture, from the bodies of others and in turn run the risk of being harvested herself, the Big Sister is now the fastest and most powerful thing in Rapture. You, on the other hand are the very first Big Daddy, in fact the prototype, that for some reason has reactivated. You are similar to the Big Daddies familiar from the original BioShock, but also very different in that you possess free will and no memory of the events of the past ten years. The question is, as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city beneath the waves, hunting for answers and the solution to your own survival, are you really the hunter, or the hunted?

    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

Hi all, for those that want the review in a nutshell...here it is.

If you have not played the first iteration of the bioshock franchise then you will be extremely enthralled by this game. It captures everything a game needs and more; atmosphere, suspense, character driven story, action, depth, puzzles and strategy. It's the complete package! The addition of Multiplayer and Trophies makes this games longevity a great investment. You will get at around 15 - 20 hours from the Singleplayer (excluding replays for alternate endings, and trophy's). The multiplayer will keep you attracted for at least 5 hours, but again if you want trophy's and to see the full scale of the online experience then you will be long into the 30 hour zone. NOTE: There has also been a recent announcement that a piece of Download-able Content for the Multiplayer will be released in the next few months which should extend the life of online play. Along with this there are also plans to extend the Singleplayer experience with further content!

Now, for those of you that have played the previous game (such as myself). I think you will greatly appreciate the changes in the mechanics (a major one would be the ability to use plasmids and guns at the same time - massive game changer!), however...one problem I had wit the game was the story. Bioshock told such a great story with twists and turns throughout (not to mention the Oh My God ending) - this isn't to say the story in bioshock 2 is not convincing, its just not as good. There arent really any twists and it feels more of an action adventure than an action thriller. Some may prefer this, however the story for me was a major selling point.

Basically, if you're a fan of BioShock or enjoy a strong single player, first person shooters and RPG's in general you will adore this second installment of the series. I was cautious as to purchasing this game when I first heard of its announcement, this was due to the first game being so groundbreaking and bringing so many changes to the genre that I believed this game wouldn't be able to match my own expectations. First of all it does this and more. The combat has been improved because of one simple inclusion, dual wielding plasmids and weapons. The tension of Splicers stalking you from the shadows is increased tenfold, the battles with them frantic and much more claustrophobic than the original. Ken Levine's leave from 2K has not changed what could have been, everything is possible in this super sequel. Characters are still as engaging and believable in this once utopia and Rapture is just as much a character as the inhabitants and story.

Looking at the story, you play as Subject Delta, a Big Daddy prototype seemingly killed by new antagonist Sofia Lamb only to wake up a decade later; a decade too late it seems, what remaining population is left have stripped Rapture bare and insanity has clouded their minds for far too long. The viciousness of these people is only strengthened by Lamb (now the ruler of Rapture) brainwashing the Splicers into believing in a social unity so strong, they will rise to aid the world with the help of a former Little Sister, Eleanor. It just so happens Eleanor was under Subject Delta's protection and now it's his job to find her, not to mention the Big Sister's...

Graphically, the game is astonishing, with dreary visuals of this paradise turned hell, 2K have created a noir like vision of life under the sea.

The first game entitled Bioshock had you run around an underwater city known as Rapture who's population was power wielding, genetically modified psychopaths. The protagonist of the first was a man called Jack Ryan who was an outsider to the city. So to summarise, the original was about the fight for survival.

The second follows a game which did not and was not expected to have a sequel. However even though this was the case, 2K Marin (the developers of Bioshock 2) managed to successfully pull of a sequel which earns its place in the series. The plot which in itself is unique to a certain degree from the original is fun, detailed and generally a very clever plot which is enjoyabel to pay attention to. The plot has twists and turns some of which you could partially have anticipated whereas others take you completely by surprise. Moving on, the choice of the main protagonist is none other than a Big Daddy which were a fundamental part of the original, because you had to kill them in order to get to the Little Sister so that you could "power up". The fact that you get to play as this hulking tank is in my opinion a more enjoyable experience with the Big Daddy, Subject Delta being a far more humane and morale character than Jack Ryan ever was. The gameplay itself is fun and enjoyable with tension building at the right moments and fighting for your life at others. The mixture of gunning splicers down and protecting Little Sisters is well balanced along with other nice surprises. In terms of visual effects, the second is somehwat more disturbing and warped than the original as a result of it being set 10 years after the first.

The addition of multiplayer is an interesting if somewhat absurd one.
