Product description


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).

This is obviously a follow up to Bioshock and it helps to have played the previous game to understand the mechanics and the environment. Set after the previous game you play as a "Big Daddy" looking for your "Little Sister". The original is a 5 star game and while this has some improvements with more weapons, enemies and abilities as well as gameplay tweaks I found it slightly less satisfying.

Playing as a "Big Daddy" did not ring true to me as when fighting them they take loads of punishment yet it only takes a few shots from an unseen "Splicer" to take you down. Also saving the "Little Sisters" got a bit repetitive and tempted you to take the dark side. The battles are fun and the "Big Sisters" are formidable foes but the environment seemed a bit more constrained and predictable and the sections where you go outside into the see added little as you could not do anything other than travel to the next location and pick up a few pieces on the way.

I am not able to comment about the online element as my game was supplied by Barcode Bargains and despite being sealed in cellophane and advertised as new it did not have a manual or product key required to sign on to Windows Online to access the online mode or record trophies. I have confirmed with 2K games all new games should have a product key and they won't supply one retrospectively.

Still a great game though with depth, a foreboding atmosphere and loads of imagination.

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.

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.

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.
