AusGamers has reviewed BioShock 2 and writes:
"Rapture 10 years on is a fitting setting for BioShock 2. Not so much in that it represents an accelerated dystopia from the one you either liberated or came to rule (in essence), but that its crumbling halls, myriad leaks and decaying furniture parallel the game itself. The BioShock engine - at one time a marvel to behold - is looking old. Very old. It struggles to do the things it should, like an ancient hulking beast burning the fuel at both ends just to remain employable... oh wait, how fitting - you play just such a character in one of the narrative's very first Big Daddies..."
