yes and no for me anyway

it is a good sequel to the first (it is fun and a new experience) but it seems more like bioshock 1.5. whilst there are improvements on the gameplay there weren't enough to satisfy me. (Thats probably because the first is one of my favorites of all time)

other things like the removal of backtracking and no new game+ mode (like for the ps3 version of Bioshock 1) somewhat remove some fun and replayability. although removal of backtracking is probably justifiable when you consider the story but it is still a missed feature for me anyway.

:thumbsup:want this game but can quite happily wait until around the £20 mark which shouldnt be that long

Seems to be that a lot of people are waiting for a price drop. I think the second hand value of these will drop very quickly as players are finishing it in about 10 hours.

Good game for the single player but not worth the price, as the multiplayer is full of lag and huge balancing issues. The ending is really disappointing too which is underwhelming, as are the graphics (its 2010 and they still use to old 2007 engine, unreal 2.4 or w/e it is).

The only people finishing this within 10 Hours are obviously playing on the easiest setting and not seeking out every area in all levels. These individuals must race through to the exit on each level! This game deserves to be played properly, it looks so good and plays like a dream. I loved the first game and this is just as good if not better! IT IS A FINE SEQUEL!

I just completed it this morning on the hard setting which was fine for me and i didnt find it all that difficult. Mind you i havent played it constantly due to work and family commitments.

Well worth paying £30 for!! ;-)

Obiviously you don't know a good game when you play one! The graphics are hardly aged now are they. Time to wake up!!!! DOH :?

**SPOILERS**

The campaign for the most was excellent. The Big Sisters provide no challenge and were nowhere to be seen in the last episode. As well as the lack of a real 'boss'. The majority of mini-bosses that were story related were all generic and simple. Maybe if the final sequence where you have to buy some time for the little sisters to escape involved another 3 or 4 Big Sisters it would have been a bit more satisfying to comlete, but having to kill a few splicers and thats it just left me thinking "Is that it?!".

It tooke me 8 hours to finish everything including all single player achievements, thats shorter than MW2.

As for the graphics, they are awful. You must be easily satisfied. All the textures are blurry, and the only detail is in the big daddy / big sister models. They have basically recycled everything from the original Bioshock, so your left with nothing new.

The first Gears of War was released a year earlier and has better graphics than the Bioshock series!

I highly recommend this game, it's an improvement on the original in almost every way.

Despite what some semi-speed-running gamerscore-hunting pseudo-know-it-alls would lead you to believe...

Well if what you say is gospel then yes i guess i must be easily satisfied. :oops:
Although I do believe you're in a minority who would agree with your comments.
When I play a game I prefer to savour the experience, why rush it, I've paid good money for it and take whatever time is needed to appreciate all the factors.
Anyway I didn't post on here to B***h about the game with non-appreciative individuals.
I just wanted to promote a well deserved fantastic gaming experience.

'A jolly good jaunt for the SERIOUS gamer'!!!;-)

I never said I didnt appreciate it, I love the gameplay, I'm just stating that it isnt worth the price because of the developers being lazy and the lack of playable multiplayer. I didnt rush it either, searched in every nook and cranny, the game itself is basically 7 levels long, its really short

Okey well I don't expect to see another episode of the game, seems to be done and dusted now.
I have to say I didn't notice that it was short, I can't remember how long the 1st game took. Oh well I enjoyed it. Going to re-visit 'Dead Space' now, another great title.

Cheers
