So what do you need to know about Bioshock 2? Well, the first thing is that no, of course it's not quite as good as the first game. The emotional impact, the freshness of Rapture itself, the gripping story full of twists and turns, these are all absent. Whereas the previous title could boast about being one of the most unique, fascinating games of the past decade, this sequel, by very definition, fails to meet those lofty demands.
It solves this issue by playing like a dream, though. The gunplay is smoother and slicker than ever and you can now (thank God!) dual-wield both weapons and plasmids. It's a rather more difficult game in many ways, with improved AI, a real-time hacking system and a new formidable foe in the form of the spindly, spiky Big Sisters.
Rapture is just as you might remember it, and it's good to be back, even if the moral cesspool that is this underwater dystopia isn't quite as striking a second time around, it still proves to be one of the finest game worlds around today. Rapture is the star of the show really, Bioshock was never about any one character really, and with that in mind, this sequel suddenly makes a lot of sense. Like Liberty City, Rapture is a living breathing space that begs for more stories of its grimier corners to be told.
The multiplayer takes several cues from Modern Warfare 2 and serves up an incredibly entertaining serving of FPS mayhem with an experience points system that Infinity Ward would be proud of.
