This is one of the games that I actually purchased due to the fun that I had playing the original Bioshock. Needless to say, Bioshock 2 is definitely worth the money. I really enjoy playing as a Big Daddy and actually getting to use the Rivet Gun. The story line is fantastic as always, which is what to be expected from Bioware. The multiplayer has actually surprised me, mostly because I am a die hard Call of Duty fan. The mixture of Plasmids, hacks, turrets, and the ability to become a Rosie Big Daddy has made me unknowingly become addicted to the multiplayer. I have actually caught myself playing it more than I have Modern Warfare 2 lately. Keep the great games coming.
This is a great game. Although I do give this a light 10/10, the graphics are stunning, your splicer enemies are going to come after you with more force and greater wits. There are plenty of new weapons and plasmids, people to meet, and areas to explore. Multiplayer is an intense firefight consisting of not only Bioshock 1 related maps, but a well put together ranking system. Ranking is pretty simple: kill enemies, find little adam caches to get some bonus exp, hack turrets and vending machines, and researching your dead enemies to get not only exp, but damage bonuses. There are some annoying glitches, but not alot just a couple splicer disappearances when you try to get what you earned outta your kill, but the pros completly out weigh the con <-- lol ONE real flaw. So thank you for reading and have fun with Bioshock 2 if you plan to rent it.
Ok, so I played this game up to the point where you have to kill Simon Wales to get into Pump Station #5. The problem is, I lured Simon Wales out of the Chapel, into the upstairs hallway, and I died. When I respawned, I respawned in the chapel, and he was still in the hallway. Well the doors to the chapel locked up and I couldn't reach him, thus not letting me through Pump Station #5 and ultimately stuck in the chapel with no where to go. I hadn't saved the game for like 2-3 hours, and that is where I packed the game up and put it right in the mail. A game this flawed shouldn't see the light of day.
And to be honest, it wasn't much fun up to the point where it glitched. It's a very impersonal game. You never real interact with anyone. All you do is listen to stupid audio logs. Its nothing compared to a game like Mass Effect 2 or Uncharted 2. Screw this game. Don't waste your time.
Because of the Hype of the game and total let down. I give this disgrace a 4.
