I've tried not to compare this sequel to what the original BioShock brought to the table. As it simply would simply never have lived up its predecessor. The main draw was the mystery behind a once thriving underwater utopia. But that chapter has now been concluded, the mystery has been solved. The story of Rapture is one that is blockbuster quality – the original was not about gameplay as much seeing Rapture for the first time and experiencing a real sense of discovery as you went deeper and deeper into its fiction. You simply cannot compare BioShock 2 to the mystery embedded into the original – if you do, you will be missing the point of this great new chapter in the Rapture fiction.
