GameSpy BioShock 2 Review

Anthony Gallegos writes, "I knew the original BioShock was a special game from the moment I first laid eyes on the underwater dystopia of Rapture. The setting was so unlike anything I'd ever seen, and exploring it was so enthralling, that I easily overlooked the game's less-than-stellar elements (the hacking mini-game, the shooting mechanics, and the story's ultimate conclusion). While BioShock 2 largely addresses the shortcomings of its predecessor, it also bears the curse of familiarity. Traipsing around Rapture is certainly still enjoyable, but it's kind of like a magic trick you've already seen -- not quite as impressive as it was the first time around." (BioShock 2, PS3, Xbox 360) 4/5
