"BioShock is one of those games with an immediately gripping story. Sadly, BioShock 2 rides on the coattails of the original a bit too much. I wish that the game opened by letting me wander around a pristine and pre-collapsed Rapture, because that would have instantly set the game apart from its predecessor and added so much to the franchise's overall narrative. Even though the multiplayer "works," it won't make you forget about the single-player any time soon. It's definitely a must-play, especially for BioShock fans, because it's still a terrifying and intense ride, but if you go into it expecting it to blow your mind like the first one did, you might be reaching for the "De-disappoint" plasmid."
