Gamereactor writes: "There is a lot of variation to the fights, although in general it's more intense than in the original game. The pace is higher and you are going to be scrambling to use your first aid kits at times even at the normal difficulty level. There are plenty of vita chambers spread out though, so there is no need to worry too much, and there is always a different strategy to try in any given situation. A few hours into the game you will have so many options when it comes to combat between weapons, plasmids, tonics and ammunition, that only your imagination sets the limits. With that said the pacing and encounters do tend to get a bit repetitive and predictable."
