Set nearly a decade after the events of its precursor, BioShock 2's Rapture is just as haunting and atmospheric the second time around (and perhaps even more so), but the sunken tomb of Rapture has lost much of the mystery that made it so memorable. Capture the Sister, for example, involves carrying around a crying, screaming, and angry Little Sister for as long as possible before you're killed and she's kidnapped by another player. Reaching certain ranks also earns you new voice recordings left by the multiplayer characters themselves, which provide their intriguing insights into the civil war and their downfall into madness. Ten years have passed since the surprising events of BioShock 2's opening cinematic, and you're a man with a mission: to find your Little Sister. Les armes (améliorables) et les t… This means you need ADAM of your own, which is where things get interesting. There was a problem. Casting the protagonist as a Big Daddy is not just a gimmick, either – the game fully immerses you in the role of the towering, stomping, clobbering monster. Well, you know what? The return to Rapture in BioShock 2 suffers slightly from ‘second time’ syndrome, but give it a few hours and an outstanding game shines through. Pros - For those of us that have played Bioshock 1 and are familiar with the gameplay, there aren't many elements that have been changed, but as a friend of mine said, "It wasn't broke, so no need to fix it". Regardless of whether or not this is a return visit to paradise lost, there is plenty to be found here to make it a worthwhile, meaningful, and compelling one. By choosing the former, you can help your adopted Little Sister continue her rounds, earning a nice ADAM bonus in the process, but you're really only delaying the big decision. An emotionally involving story with a strong final act, Rapture is a more fully realized universe, Not quite as scary or surprising as the original, Wondering what could possibly be left for BioShock 3. Every weapon in BioShock 2 is more impressive and more satisfying than its equivalent in BioShock 1. When BioShock launched in 2007, it felt like a breath of fresh air to many gamers. I enjoy sunshine, the company of kittens and turning frowns upside down. Please use a html5 video capable browser to watch videos.

The years have not been kind to the splicers, who are far more warped and disfigured than ever before. Taking place some years after the original title, BioShock 2 features the first Big Daddy returning to Rapture to stop the Big Sister and her ilk. Want us to remember this setting for all your devices? Not so much in that it represents an accelerated dystopia from the one you either liberated or came to rule (in essence), but that its crumbling halls, myriad leaks and decaying furniture parallel the game itself. Bioshock 2 has long been bemoaned as the sequel that was never needed. Set 8 years after the events of the initial game, BioShock 2 follows Subject Delta, a prototype Big Daddy brought back to life and sent on a quest to recover the Little Sister he was bonded to prior to his death, Eleanor, from the clutches of the new leader of Rapture, Sofia Lamb. Much like its predecessor, BioShock 2 is slower and more methodical than your average shooter, but combat feels much more natural and effective than it ever did before.

With enough ADAM at your disposal, you can spend it splicing up your DNA with plasmids to gain access to psychokinetic powers, such as the ability to throw fireballs, generate decoys that draw enemy fire, or shoot bees from your hands.

All players have a persistent rank based on the amount of ADAM they've earned by winning matches and completing secondary objectives like hacking turrets, booby-trapping vending machines, or taking creeper photos of the bodies of their fallen enemies (which has the side effect of granting you a damage bonus against that player). 0 .
