IMHO, while not as good as the Original I enjoyed Bioshock 2 quite a bit.
Yes, its worth playing and I would even say its a good buy at $20.

Do you use Steam?
If so, Summer sale is coming up soon. Bioshock and Bioshock 2 are often up on sale for $4.99 each. And at that price, its a must have.

Where?

Bioshock 2 - Steam - $19.99

As Wishmaster said though, it will most likely go on sale this summer for $4.99. I got my copy during last year's summer sale. Absolutely worth it.

Sorry I thought she was talking about Bioshock Infinite. I just checked Steam and it's still $59.99. I would still get it if I wasn't in school at the moment, but if it was 19 on sale, I'd get it now and play it later.

I've got an Xbox, and I could get Bioshock 2 for around £5, and I've even got the walkthrough guide too (it was free).

Nice review JackALope52x

Just finished this the other day myself. Personally I thought it was very linear and rather boring until some of the very end scenes. Not the greatest choice of weapons and half of the Vigors were useless. Visually it was beautiful but another let down in game play for me.

I'm old skool and much prefer gameplay over fancy graphics. Obviously there as to be some aspect of decent graphics but Developers seem to think they can get away with just pimping up the looks of a game and people will be convinced. Sadly, I am not one of them.

Thanks taylorig! I agree with you there, I did find there were just too many Vigors and I never used half of them. Also I feel like they got lazy with the guns. As I mentioned before the guns never visually changed and the "Red" sides guns were the same look and feel as the "Blue" sides guns, so that was pretty disappointing for me. The also got lazy on the foliage textures, but honestly all these things didn't really affect the gameplay or the actually player experience so I didn't dock too many points for it. Maybe I was just being too nice with my rating.

Oh and for how linear the game was, this is my take on it. How many games these days are not linear? It is really hard to find a non pathway based game that is decent. I think they did a good job at putting enough side rooms for me too loot so I could get distracted and forget the fact that I have been following one path the whole game. But that's just me.

Yea. I have to agree with you on the point of side rooms etc for extra loot scavenging and like you said about how many other games these day's are linear.

I personally look out for and play open world games such as DayZ (ArmA II Mod). Extremely demanding game on one's system though

But anyway as i said before. Good Review on Bioshock Infinite and well thought out points. Appreciate your efforts as i am sure others will too
