Bioshock 2 > Wiki


BioShock 2 is a first-person shooter video game developed by 2K Marin and Irrational Games for the Xbox 360 and PlayStation 3 video game consoles, and the Windows operating system. It is the sequel to the critically acclaimed 2007 video game BioShock. The game was released world-wide on February 9, 2010.

The game is set in fictional dystopian city Rapture in alternative history 1970, a decade after the events of BioShock. The protagonist and player-controlled character is a Big Daddy, a being that has had its organs and skin grafted into an atmospheric diving suit. Among the first of its kind, the player-controlled Big Daddy reactivates with no recollection of the past decade's events, and scours the city in a vain attempt to relocate the Little Sister that he was paired with. When it becomes obvious that Rapture's leader Sofia Lamb will become responsible for the city's destruction, the Big Daddy attempts to overthrow Lamb and her army of Big Sisters.

In 2007, Bioshock came out and took the entire gaming world by storm.  What you ended up getting was an exploration through a dystopian world that was at one point run by a madman.  The games philisophical undertones and excellent story (among many other things) made the first Bioshock an incredible game.  How, then, do you top that?  The game was easily one of the best we'd seen this generation.  It's hard to top Bioshock.  And whether Bioshock 2 does or doesn't depends …

Just enough changed to make the experience interesting again, beautiful visuals - as with the first - some really fun story elements, and a cool photo system.
