    This game should have just been a DLC instead of a full-blown sequel. The story is ridiculously short and boring, not to mention poorly voice-acted. And by far the worst sin is that no new plasmids were added, some were tweaked ever so slightly or given new names, but no real new ones were added for the second game. The weapons were also extremely similar to the original game. Some mayThis game should have just been a DLC instead of a full-blown sequel. The story is ridiculously short and boring, not to mention poorly voice-acted. And by far the worst sin is that no new plasmids were added, some were tweaked ever so slightly or given new names, but no real new ones were added for the second game. The weapons were also extremely similar to the original game. Some may see this as staying true to the original, but I see it as lack of originality, inspiration, or imagination. It seems as if the makers of the original Bioshock just got really really really lazy and decided to not change anything because the system worked the first time. Any new plasmids or weapons would have been a welcome addition, not a significant change to the game. Overall, the game just should have been a DLC and I have rarely been so disappointed in a game.

    This review contains spoilers, click expand to view. El primer Bioshock mostro que era obvio una secuela o el principio de una franquicia, pero este intento lo puedo calificar de fallido, carente de originalidad siendo que el primer titulo era un refresh a los shooters, ademas que la trama que brillo en el primer titulo, aqui es aburrida y las tasks son repetitivas, matar a alguien obtener a traves de las little sisters algo que ni recuerdo como se llama, y asi repitelo a traves de las horas que tardes en terminar el juego, me arrepenti de comprarlo, lo vendi enseguida antes que bajara de precio por que seguramente no fui el unico que penso lo mismo, ser un big daddy nunca fue tan aburrido Expand

  1. Unless the familiarity really gets to you, you're going to love BioShock 2. It's a lovingly crafted, carefully constructed masterpiece of narrative richness and smart game mechanics. It can even be enjoyed as a straight-up shooter thanks to its innovative, tactile combat system. [Feb 2010, p.72]

    It's a game in which story, setting, and gameplay are expertly blended to create an experience that's as thought-provoking as it is entertaining.

    This second tour of duty with far superior toys is everything it needs to be, though. Familiarity breeds a little contempt, but as, simply, a game in which you shoot monsters in city under the sea, it's better in every respect.
