Biggest complaint seems to be that "it's not different enough from the first" but the first was awesome, so who cares

Just gave it a spin, first hour or so. It's good, didn't wow me as much as the opening to the first Bioshock though.

And the story hasn't been as intriguing early on but it may change, on he plus side the actual combat and shooting I find much better, there are more enemies this time round so it means you have a think a little more but anyone who's good at FPS games should have no trouble.

So far it's been worth my money, I'll try the multiplayer and get back to you on that.

Why would you want it to be?

It's like changing the formula to Halo, or God of War. Rapture and the atmosphere are part of Bioshock that wasn't going to change.

Your definately missing out, one of the most original and unique games I've ever played, great story that keeps you on the edge, get that game in your console!! :D

Finished it last night, it is a great game. I can't help but shake the feeling that because the first Bioshock was so good this is an inferior game in almost every way (other than the shooting)

It's still great but the story didn't impact me the way the first one did but few have, it's still a spectacular game.

Just beat the game last night,amazing game,theres more of a story then the original,but the twists dont have the same impact as the first ( what game twists can haver a better impact then the first bioshock anyway? ) but the shooting was better,the plasmids are better,and the sequences,especially towards the end are sick,a great game

You thought there was more of a story?

I thought there was less of a story, moreso because in the first game your drip fed the details slowly working it out, in this one your given an outpour of story from the start that directly told to you. I think it's more generic, I pretty much guessed what was going to happen by about 3/4 of the way through

Bioshock 1 is in my top 10 games ever. So yeah you should play it.


As for bioshock 2, played a little bit last night, it's good so far. I played the multiplayer too, i thought the multiplayer would blow but it's hella fun.

Is it an alien shoot em up type game or?

it has no aliens in....

If you go for one of the two go for the original. This is one of the situations where the Firat game is better than the first.
