A sequel that surpasses the original. The folks at 2K have delivered a game with more emotional and intellectual punch than the original game although you might feel a bit dirty for enjoying the game so much.
Before heading into Bioshock 2, you had to wonder if a sequel was necessary. The original Bioshock was so perfect that fans couldn’t even imagine how '2K Games' would approach a sequel. Well, 2K and its collaborating studios have pulled off a brilliant sequel that holds up to the critical acclaim of the first game.
By relying, and cashing in on, what made the Bioshock so great, 2K has made a worthy sequel. However, they did so without surpassing the original. Bioshock 2 isn’t exactly what its predecessor was in terms of novelty but remains a great game that every gamer should check out, whether you’ve played the first outing or not.
2K have one again proved that Rapture, through all it's wild, twisted and crazy moments, is an unforgettable place to be. You may think you've seen it all before, but that's no reason to deprive yourself of what is most certainly one of the best titles of the year.
If your interest lies solely with the single-player experience - and let's be frank, this is why we counted down the days until BioShock 2's release - I walked away from it pleased, but also unfulfilled. BioShock 2 eventually becomes the sequel I hoped for, but spends too much time getting there. [Issue#203, p.82]
The star of the game though is undoubtedly the setting, and though I’ve enjoyed Bioshock 2 a lot less than the first game I am pretty sure that if 2K have got a third game in mind, I’ll be unable to resist the temptation to go back to Rapture once more.
Bioshock 2 tem o peso de fazer a sequencia de um dos títulos mais importantes para o mundo dos games,porém não apostaram em nada de muito novo,jogaram na zona segura,mantendo oque funcionava com pequenas adições e melhorias.
Agora o protagonista se trata de Subject Delta um Big Daddy,o mais famoso habitante de Rapture,e isso influência diretamente no Gameplay,onde se sente mais peso ao controlar o personagem,mas mesmo assim ele é mais rápido que os demais Big Daddys,porém menos resistente,nada muito diferente do primeiro título.
As únicas mudanças em relação as armas são as armadilhas e a broca,de restante são apenas versões "mais do mesmo".
Uma novidade bem vinda se da ao fato de usarmos as duas mãos,uma para Plasmids e a outra para a arma de fogo,além de ataques corpo a corpo poderem ser realizados com qualquer arma,e não apenas com a chave de grifo.
Apenas dois novos inimigos foram adicionados,além de novas variações de Big Daddys.
Brute:Splicers com foco em corpo a corpo,resistentes e além de jogar objetos pesados em você.
Big Sister:São Little Sisters em sua fase adulta.
O sistema de pesquisa e hackeamento,foram aperfeiçoados,ficaram mais dinâmicos e menos cansativos.
Bioshock 2 se mantem na zona de conforto e traz uma experiência muito semelhante ao jogo anterior,é uma DLC Full Price,poucas novidades,porém é necessário muito mais do que isso para tirar o mérito de uma obra de arte como essa.
A good game but that’s all. It chooses to focus much of its gameplay on the worst part of BioShock 1. Furthermore, the story is just so much worse and has a lot of plot holes which are“explained” by saying “because Adam” which is just Lazy. Furthermore Lamb is a super uninteresting villain who is just comically evil. Overall a good game but nowhere near the quality of the first
Gameplay 7/10: As the first part, BS2 contains tons of play options by a vast choice of weaponry. However, at some points the selection is too extensive and at times it becomes annoying to change the weapon too frequently due to low ammo.
Style 9/10: Here dies BS2 the most. Coming back to Rapture felt great and the Soundtrack is just fitting.
Story 6/10: My main problem with BS2 is that it does not feel very new after the first part. While the main story is quite boring, the background story of rapture was already told and does not offer mich more.
Conclusion: Recommended to all huge fans of the first part, who want more. However, the DLC Minerva's Den would have been enough for me to play from the Big Daddy perspective.
SummarySet approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city of Rapture. You are the very first Big Daddy as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful...
