Play.tm BioShock 2 Review

Recently released sequels Assassin's Creed 2 and Mass Effect 2 have been received as much-improved middle portions of promised trilogies, widely acclaimed for building upon their narrative foundations while refining core gameplay elements and creating new player experiences. However, the praise lavished upon 2007's BioShock was more focused on its unforgettable impact as a self-contained singular event that neither needed nor suggested a sequel. Therefore the measure of BioShock 2's success is likely to pivot on whether a return to the submerged city of Rapture, a failed Utopian vision hidden deep beneath the Atlantic, stands on its own merits or is merely a diluted re-enactment of past glories. (BioShock 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360) 90/100
