It is a very good game, almost as good as the first. Nice to see this new character in this world, and that they're including it in the story arc. You see references to her all over the game. The controls are easy to use. It's kind of like alternate history on a point in time I like, The thirties through the fifties. In an underwater utopia gone horribly wrong. I spend a lot of time into the wee hours of the morning. Challenging enough to make you come back for more. They should make more games like this.

I've played the original and seeing this game online it looked as if though it had alot of potential but i had some problems.
Weapons - You only really ever use 3 and the stealth mechanic intended for the spear gun is garbage.
Plasmids - Awesomely updated much better and easier to use
Combat - Decent for a few minutes then it becomes apparent that your only really killing the same two guys over and over and over.
Storyline - At first I asked whats going on? Then it made sense and then I stopped caring and barely remember any of it. The choices made have no real significant impact. Its either you have more plasmids or not.
Gameplay - The Map Makes me sooo mad. I actually ran in circles a few times because I havint the foggiest where I was supposed to go. The Storyline was'nt as engaging as I had hoped it to be. The Big sisters while cool arint all that threatening and I only saw two new enemies that didnt make much of a appearance and overall the combat was stagnant because one plasmid could end a fight at the beginning of the game.
Overall its a good FPS for the sake of killing people but the storyline doesnt add up when it clearly make its feeble attempts.
