Did Bioshock really need a sequel? Play this for an hour and you won't care. Yep, we're back in Rapture and things are still pretty awful, there are more splicers than ever, the Big Daddies have been somewhat superseded by their more spindly, and rather more terrifying, female counterparts: the Big Sisters.
It's been under a tenner for a little while now, but Gamestation have gone and made things even better, now offering the game for just £8.99. At the moment it'll save you a quid on the rest of the GAME group and Amazon.
No it's not as good as the original, but then again it was never really going to evoke the same amount of surprise and awe and disturbed wonder as its predecessor. What it does do, however, is tune up the action and the shooting mechanics, ratcheting up the tensity of each and every firefight and polishing the responsiveness accordingly. Add in a bunch of new plasmids, the ability to dual-wield, pant-wetting hacking that now happens in real time and a multiplayer that subscribes to Infinity Ward's opus' way of thinking and it would appear 2K have gone and knocked another one out the park.
Check out my full review if you don't believe me.
