CheatCC: Bioshock 2 Review

CheatCC writes: Few gamers that played BioShock didn't immediately fall in love with it. The Art Deco style, the Plasmid-enhanced shooter gameplay, and the utterly compelling story made it an instant classic; one that will be remembered as a generation-defining gaming experience. Of course, original hits are hard for publishers to come by, so a sequel was inevitable.

While the second entry in a proven franchise typically greatly improves upon the framework already put in place by its predecessor, BioShock 2 is more of a mildly refined experience. Rather than incorporating anything groundbreaking or entirely original, the development teams behind the game decided to leave well enough alone. While this will undoubtedly please many fans, I couldn't help but feel I was playing through essentially the same game I played on the Xbox 360 in 2007 and then again on the PS3 in 2008. Sure, taking control of a Big Daddy in all new environments seems like an important new direction for the series, but in the end, the novelty wears thin quickly and you're left with more of the same." (BioShock 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 4.2/5
