“Shh! Daddy, Big Sister doesn’t want you playing with me.” -Little Sister to Subject Delta

The follow-up to BioShock, 2K Games’ critically acclaimed 2007 release BioShock, BioShock 2 is a first-person shooter set in the fictional underwater city of Rapture. As in the original game, BioShock 2 features a blend of fast-paced action, exploration and puzzle-solving as players follow varying paths through the overarching storyline based on the decisions that they are forced to make at various points in the game. In addition to a further fleshing out of the franchise’s popular storyline, players can look forward to new characters, game mechanics, weapons, locations and a series first, multiplayer game options.

Set approximately 10 years after the events of the original BioShock, the halls of Rapture once again echo with sins of the past. Along the Atlantic coastline, a monster — somehow familiar, yet still quite different from anything ever seen — has been snatching little girls and bringing them back to the undersea city. It is a Big Sister, new denizens of Rapture who were once one of the forgotten little girls known as Little Sisters, known to inhabit the city’s dank halls. No longer a pawn used to harvest ADAM, the dangerously powerful gene-altering lifeblood of Rapture, from the bodies of others and in turn run the risk of being harvested herself, the Big Sister is now the fastest and most powerful thing in Rapture. You, on the other hand are the very first Big Daddy, in fact the prototype, that for some reason has reactivated. You are similar to the Big Daddies familiar from the original BioShock, but also very different in that you possess free will and no memory of the events of the past ten years. The question is, as you travel through the decrepit and beautiful fallen city beneath the waves, hunting for answers and the solution to your own survival, are you really the hunter, or the hunted?

So here it is, my BioShock 2 review!

I had to do some mad editing here as I had sooo much to say lol XD
It would be great to hear your thoughts on the game.

This PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360 game is the result of collaboration between Goichi Suda (No More Heroes series) and Shinji Mikami (Resident Evil series), and will combine the styles of the two designers, namely the “punk rock” edge of the former and the “psychological action thriller” of the latter.

When evil demonic creatures kidnap Garcia Hotspur’s girlfriend, it’s up to the Mexican demon hunter to travel to the City of the Damned AKA Hell to get her back. Aided by a former demon called Johnson with the ability to transform into an array of vicious weapons, Garcia will once again take on the mantel of “demon hunter” and rip apart the horrifying forces of the underworld to protect what he loves most.

Cocoon, a human paradise, floats above the world of Pulse. When an ancient entity of Pulse origin awakens on the outskirts of a Cocoon city, paradise is threatened from within. Chosen by destiny, six must choose between saving mankind, and saving themselves.

In Final Fantasy XIII, you will embark on a journey through the cityworld of Cocoon and the outerworld of Pulse. Along the way, you will encounter diverse allies who will fight alongside you.
