Making a sequel to a hit video game is always tricky. When the game in question was the 2007 Game of the Year that offered one of the most original gaming experiences ever and didn't seem to leave much sequel room, you can see the challenge. But 2K Games is wiling to take that challenge on with Bioshock 2 and, for the most part, they do manage to live up to the first game's great reputation. The game does lack the stunning originality of its predecessor as it can feel a bit too familiar. However, that can actually aid the gamers in some places as the twists on the old formula lead to fun new combat. Aiding it is the game boasts what remains one of the best settings imaginable and a mix of powers and firepower that leads to one amazing gaming experience.
