Yahoo writes: "With a new creative team in charge you should expect the feel of a big gaming franchise to change, if only slightly. Think of how James Bond movies alter, not always for the better, under new direction. There are times when BioShock 2 feels very far removed from its award-winning origin, not nearly as smart.
The artistry of Irrational Games, who gave us the original BioShock three years ago, is more than skin deep. They may have sold us short on some of the promises, but BioShock was certainly unique when it finally surfaced after much anticipation. You can hardly blame publisher 2K for wanting to keep momentum going."
