Game Arena: BioShock 2 Review

Bioshock came at a great time, during the wave of Ayn Rand disciples flooding the internet coming up to the '08 US election. To some it seemed like a slap in the face and to others a slap on the back of comraderie - it changed with a person's stance on the objectivist philosophy. Bioshock 2 does the same thing for collectivism, and from the cold open - maybe one of the best ever in a video game - to the climactic final act BioShock 2 does exactly what you expect. Sure, the philosophy is more obvious this time and there'll never be a real equivalent to Sander 'effing' Cohen but BioShock 2 still manages to live up to the high standard set by the first game - even if it doesn't exceed it. (BioShock 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 9/10
