OXCGN's Bioshock 2 Second Look Review – The Philosophy Of Utopia

OXCGN:

"Bioshock 2 is a great game that still doesn't manage to entirely crawl out from the shadow of its predecessor.

While it perfectly replicates the role-playing, superpower-fueled shooter gameplay that made the original game revolutionary, the story does not have the same M. Night Shyamalan narrative twist that made it genius.

Bioshock is one of the few game franchises where the setting is the star. The underwater city of Rapture is beautifully implausible, constructed in an imaginative art deco style reminiscent of the work of Hugh Ferriss, whose perspective drawings of New York buildings in the early 20th Century inspired legions of architects." (BioShock 2, PC, PS3, Xbox 360)

Personally I think this is one of the best games out thus far in 2010, and a great carry-on from the original.

I still haven't got this one, though I thought Bioshock 1 was GOTY when it was released for 360.

This was a great read- very intelligent review.
