Rapture! F*%& YEAH!
As the title says I finally finished Bioshock 2 this evening and what a ride! I can say that the game lived up to the hype for me and it turned out to be a great addition to the Bioshock series.
Of course it couldn’t grab us with the unique setting like the first one did, since we had already been there, but I can say I really enjoyed exploring new area’s of rapture including a theme park type section that I though was truly inspired.
The two complaints I have about the game are small but nagging. The first is that is uses Games For Windows Live, a service which I wish would just die already. I can’t count the number of times I’ve tried to play a game only to have their servers down, or been waiting on a patch because Microsoft has to approve it dang thing.
The second complaint is that I never really FELT like a Big Daddy combat wise. They did an EXCELLENT job making me feel like a Big Daddy in every other aspect, and they tried to explain the weakness in combat with the Alpha Daddy storyline, but a splicer STILL shouldn’t give me that much trouble in my opinion.
All around it was a great experience and I can’t wait to play Bioshock 3 (or SystemShock 3 if the rumors are true). I might mess with the multiplayer later, but I’d rather not have the game tainted for me with teabagging at the moment.
