Rapture beckons us back to its murky depths to play with more plasmids and weapons, whilst solving a new mystery and meeting a new nemesis in the form of the Big Sister.
Game have dropped their price for Bioshock 2 on the Xbox down to £12.99, which'll make you a saving of almost £1.50 on the next best offer of £14.45 coming in from Tesco Entertainment.
Bioshock 2 gives you the chance to finally play as a Big Daddy, which is something I've wanted to do since they first came stumbling and moaning onto my screen. Subject Delta is a prototype Big Daddy, who reactivates 10 years after the events of the original, and can dual wield both weapons and plasmids, which opens up a whole host of ways to dispatch enemies. As fun as setting traps and setting splicers on fire whilst pumping round after round into them is, one of my favourite additions to the weapons list is the Big Daddy's signature drill, which combined with a swift charge'll smash your enemies to pieces.
There are a few new enemies in addition to the familiar splicers and Big Daddies that were present in Bioshock. The Big Sisters are nimble little minxes, attacking you with a tremendous amount of speed and can zap you with plasmids if they want a bit of variety. You should also keep an eye out for the new Rumbler Big Daddies, who aren't quite as heavy set as the others but more than make up for it with the weaponry they carry.
This time around multiplayer's on the cards and it takes place during the downfall of Rapture, which occurred prior to the events of the original, and is hugely entertaining to be a part of, whether you're blasting people with plasmids or trying to hold on to a Little Sister for a few extra points.
Whilst the story isn't anywhere near as engrossing as the original, the gameplay is a big improvement and you'll definitely want to check it out.
