The second game returns us to the city of Rapture, on the New Year’s Eve, but this time player takes control of Subject Delta, Big Daddy, that’s been separated from his little sister and has been forced to shoot himself 2 years before the events of the first game took place. And after his awakening 10 years later, players will help to save the last sane citizens of Rapture. As seen in the previous game, the player will have access to new weapons, unique to Big Daddies, power drill and a rivet gun, alongside an array of plasmids, Tonics, and guns. Now players will be able not only save Little Sisters from other Big Daddies, and then either harvest ADAM directly, or protect them while they collect ADAM for their new guardian. Bioshock introduces a new enemy type, Big Sisters, which are extremely agile and fast versions of Big Daddies. Newly added multiplayer brings several never seen formats to the series. Aside from expected Deathmatches, the game added story-driven mode Fall of Rapture.

      «That ending!»

      A worthy successor to the original. While the story might not be for everyone (it is amazing!) the gameplay is undeniably more refined. Besides, any excuse to go back to Rapture one more time is more than worth it.

      I played the first Bioshock (as well as many others here) and was thrilled with the depth and the ingenious atmosphere of the game. The second part I also found very nice and entertaining, but not as captivating as the first part. As mentioned in the title, I find it a good expansion for the first part, nothing more. For the fans of Bioshock but a must! P.S .: If I played the first part, really two times, because one could act there "good" and "evil". So I did not feel like going through this version again in order to finally be able to watch another end video. Perhaps because the two versions are technically and slightly different from the game options, and thus invite you to simply run through the levels, just to reach the big end. Because everything else has already been seen somewhere (mostly in the first part).

      bioshock2 following the first big bioshock of the name happening 10 years after the events of the first se bioshock2 is a real scnaristics suite with a gameplay improve we find what made the strength of the 1st but with a lot of improvements the atmosphere still excellent bioshock2 can be a very good experience despite its short-lived faults, bugs of all kinds, no assertions in the scnrio, choice of weapons that resemble those of the first, but it will not spoil the pleasure of playing with the qualities it has . For the multiplayer I installed GameRanger but I see that there is no one I do not know if it is a bug or no one go but in any case I do not see the server bioshock2 pity if someone wanted to know how it works should not put LAN parts unless you want to bet between you but they have to disable GameRanger strange.

      I had already played through the title on the Xbox360 and at the special price I thought BioShock on the go on the MacBook would be nice. The game itself is great and only to be recommended, what exactly is going on can be read in reviews. A solid shooter with easy role-playing elements, a very dense atmosphere and great sound design. Now to technical side. I was skeptical as to whether the game was going to slow down on my MBP 13 "Early 2012 (Core i5, HD3000, 8GB RAM), and in fact I have to say that the device does not come off easily, I appreciate the frames / second times to 25-30, with occasional lags and slightly longer texture loading times, despite large-sized memory.As with all other games also turns the fan on full pot and the CPU heats up to 90 degrees (CPU and GPU sit yes, since the Core-i are pretty close to each other.) This is a bit of a hassle but if you are not put off by it or if you have a much stronger Mac you should not have any problems here.
