IGN writes: "Back in August of 2007 2K Boston, previously known as Irrational Games, released BioShock. To some it was one of the most engrossing, entertaining, and thought-provoking games of the generation, and one of those experiences that gets lodged in memory for years afterwards, remaining a salient and essential point of comparison for all similar titles moving forward. Then in 2008 a sequel was announced, this time being handled by newly formed 2K Marin, which included a core group of ex-2K Boston developers. The sequel is set 10 years after the events of the first game, still in the underwater city of Rapture, but featuring a different protagonist. In BioShock 2, you play as a Big Daddy".
