The first time I got my hands on this game, I was rolling in fits of excitement and anticipation. I played the multiplayer first - very impressive! You get to choose between 7 citizens of Rapture during the fall of the city (1959) and you get your very own apartment which serves as a home base where you can customize your character, edit your loadouts, check stats, etc.
But what I was REALLY anticipating was the single player campaign. Without saying too much, I will say that the story is not as mysterious or atmospheric as its predeccesor. The storyline feels kind of pushed along, and also the progression of levels seemed like they had less depth. In addition, I came across more glitches then I would have liked. Just minor snags in the visuals, random tape recordings turning on, and some lagging...
With all of that said, the gameplay itself is AMAZING! All of the new weapons are a blast to use, and you get to do all kinds of new things -this time around you have a much bigger selection of traps, gene tonics, and plasmids at your disposal. There are plenty of recordings to find around, but that ties back to the storyline.. they basically took the antithesis of the first story to use (Collectivism vs Individualism) which is all fine and good, but many of the side stories felt tacked on.
Overall, both modes of play are really entertaining and worth checking out. Bioshock 2 is definately a game worth buying, if not for the single player campaign, then for multiplayer.

I'm gonna be honest...I've only played the first two levels of this game, but all ready by and far this is the better of the two games...I mean who didn't want to wield the big daddy drill and go have some fun, and on top of that you get to use plasmids. So far the story has been at least as good as the last one if not a little better...you get a little bit of back story as to the original game that you didn't learn then...and with the addition of the big sister (whom will flatten you in an instant if your not careful with her) what's not to love. If your a fan of the original this is a must rent and possibly a good purchase...if you've never played the first...what are you waiting for? Go rent it beat it and get ready for sister.
