Whether the original game really needed a direct sequel is up in the air, as this one feels more like Bioshock 1.5 than its own story. However, where it falters, the gameplay picks up the slack in a big way. Its improvements over Bioshock are evolutionary and intuitive; the developers made sensible adjustments and didn't fix what wasn't broken. Personal mileage will vary as always, and much of the city's mysteries have long been solved. Still, anyone who at all enjoyed the minute-to-minute action and atmosphere of Bioshock will be well served here."
