It's a pretty game with interesting gimmicks, which is why it gets a 9, but otherwise a let down. It does not sustain interest as did the first two Bioshocks. Definitely a rent, but dubious as a purchase.
The environment is beautiful and the gameplay is above average. Gameplay is a tad more difficult than the previous games. What I didn't enjoy was the inability to carry more than two weapons at a time. The previous Bioshock games gave you a variety of weapons that you could keep with you throughout the game. The vigors are okay. But the storyline was a bit confusing. It seemed like they just put whatever together for the storyline. I'm not done with the game, so I'm hoping everthing will come together in the end,

I don't see it. This story is just alot less engaging than the first bioshock game, even though they tried way harder.
There is a ton of work put into this game,and everything is neatly wrapped and topped with a bow. Everything is shiny and beautiful, but its all just candy coating for the same mediocre shooter we've been playing for years. Paired with a similar "Saviour and/ or Villain?" plot, and I was done about an hour in.
The first bioshock still stands far and above its sequels.
