I'm sad to say I hadn't played either of the Bio Shock games but with the new one coming out at the end of the month I decided I was going to get caught up before I played it and it was well worth it, I enjoyed the story, the graphics and world were stunning and the gameplay was amazing, I gave the game a solid 8/10 every thing about the game was awesome but my one complaint is it was way to short, need less to say I can't wait for the new one at the end of this month!

Many people say that Bioshock 2 was not as good as the first title in the series, but I disagree.
The main reason why I think that this was better was because they had fixed the controls a little bit which made using your plasmids and weapons easier, and they fixed some bugs and glitches in the gameplay and story as well. They made the enemies move a lot smoother and not so robotic like in the first which made you use a couple clips before killing an enemy.
The one thing that still made me frustrated in this game as well as the first, was the lack of ammo from enemies, and the complete lack of First Aid Kits from looting. I could never find a health pack unless I found a health station or bought some from the vending machines, but money is sparce as well so it became difficult.
Other than these few complaints above, this game was pretty good. There are some new weapons, a new hack tool, and even the same weapons are designed differently like the shotgun. You get to use the rivet gun now, which was my favorite weapon throughout the entire game.
The story was a little confusing throughout the game and fast paced, but it still kept interested and wanting more, even though this one was about several hours shorter than the first, and not too much replay value to it.
The graphics are still good, probably the same as the first, but the environments seems a little better, especially the underwater parts of the game.
There is a multiplayer option, and in my opinion it's not as bad as I thought it would be. You can rank up and use different loadouts.
Overall, I gave it an 8, but If I could, I would probably give it a 7.5. It's definitely worth a rent, maybe not a buy
