Good

Fun to play but it's buggy, and looks dated.

Bioshock 2 is practically the same as the first - takes place in Rapture, an underwater city. The game-play is nearly the same as the first and it's fun to make progress, especially when you're more than a halfway through and have reached the point of domination against your foes. Then you decide to save your game - overwriting your previous save from 3-4 hours ago and then your saving progress bar freezes on 83% and ultimately corrupts your save file.

Apparently it's a very common bug on multiple platforms including PC. For me, unreliable software is unacceptable and I plan on not playing through it again. So make sure you save often, and creating new saves every time; I didn't and so it ruined my experience.

The graphics in my opinion are terrible by today's standards. Bioshock was a great game a couple of years ago and is one of my personal favorites of all time. I finished God of War III just before I started on Bioshock II and I could not believe the low-resolution quality of Bioshock's graphics. Needless to say I was mortified by it; I almost thought I was playing a PS2 version. For me, this is an epic failure [not sure who to blame so I'm going to point to the developers at 2K] not take the visuals to another level.

Overall I enjoyed making progress [I got as far as saving my second Little sister at Dionysus Park] but the save/crash-bug is unacceptable, and the graphics engine is severely dated and of such low-quality compared to games of the same genre [Fallout III], for me - it's disappointing.

This game was awesome!! Its really pissing me off reading all the reviews where people are complaining about it being very similar to the first...Why is that such a bad thing???!! Obviously the original was sweet and they did everything right, whats wrong with just continuing what already worked from the beginning?? I'm sure if they totally changed things up people would be upset too..Cant please everyone..
They def. tweaked a few things and made simple adjustments (obviously they listened to people's constructive criticism)..
Overall I'm glad things stayed the same for the most part...for there was NOTHING wrong with the original.. so why change anything??!
