- Review: Bioshock 2
This collectors' edition is an unusual one, in that the game's attendant frippery is actually made up of items one might actually wish to own. The whole bundle, including the packaging, reflects the retro-futuristic aesthetic of Bioshock and contains: a 12" vinyl record of the original game's orchestral score, a CD of Bioshock 2's orchestral score, a 164 page hardbound artbook and three vintage style posters depicting advertisements found in Rapture. The game itself is a thoroughly decent sequel, with many improvement made upon the original, most notably within combat, and a new multiplayer option added. However, it simply does not create the same impact as its predecessor as, while it is still a fascinating and beautiful setting, Rapture has now been stripped of much of its mystery and the story and characters that dwell within are just not quite as memorable.
