Is it the game of the year? Possibly not. Graphically there isn't much in the way of improvement from the first, but it does still look good. It might not quite be as long as the first Bioshock game either. But the new story keeps you gripped at all times due to how well it is written. The introduction of a multiplayer mode also makes Bioshock 2 one of the best games I've played since the original was released. It might not be too different from the original, but simply put, you have to add Bioshock 2 to the list of "must have games" in your collection.
