Review - Bioshock 2

Friday, March 12th, 2010 by Mark-12

bioshock-box

Title: Bioshock 2
Developer/Publisher: 2k Games
Platforms: PC, XBox 360, PS3
Release Date: 02/09/10
Number of Players: 1 player campaign, 2-10 player multiplayer

It is time, boys and girls, to return to Rapture. This time, however, we’re visit the idyllic city as one of its protectors, a Big Daddy. Although years have passed since the original Bioshock, the world hasn’t changed much. The Splicers still rule the streets of Rapture and are on their eternal hunt for Adam, Little Sisters and their Big Daddies can be found harvesting it from corpses and there are plenty of cameras, vending machines and turrets to be hacked. The game opens with you, as a Big Daddy, following your Little Sister through a cocktail party and the city of Rapture looks bright and new to you. As she races ahead of you and out of sight, you hear her scream for you. Your arrival finds a few local residents trying to harvest her for ADAM. Like any good protector, you swoop in and squish the evil ne’er do wells, saving your ward. The antagonist of the game, Sofia Lamb, arrives at this point and takes you Little Sister and orders you to take a pistol and kill yourself. Congratulations, you’ve lost the game…not really, of course. You wake up in front of a Vita-Chamber about 10 years later and it seems you’ve missed the Fall of Rapture. Welcome back to Rapture.

Wednesday, October 15th, 2008 by Matt Cross

As previously reported here, 2k Games were aware of some technical glitches in the Bioshock PS3 demo, and have officially announced that there will indeed be a patch to fix these errors!

2K Community Manager Elizabeth Tobey, via a post on the 2K forums, has said they were are working on a few other things to be fixed with this patch, and therefore no date has been officially set as of yet.

As of now, the official list of things to be fixed:

- Fix for an issue where large blocky pixels would show up whenever viewing the Bouncer and Elite Bouncer variants of the Big Daddy.

- Fix for an issue where white/discolored bars would show up at the right and bottom sides of the screen during the plane crash / water scene at the beginning of the game.

Hey those sound like things we reported!

BioShock (PS3) Demo Impressions

Sunday, October 5th, 2008 by Matt Cross

Just a little while ago, I finished the demo for the upcoming PS3 release BioShock, and was just as impressed as I was the first time. Most gamers are already familiar with this game, having already been released on the Xbox 360 (not to mention the hype train its riding for its upcoming PS3 release). But for those of you who don’t own a 360 and are anticipating this one, I think you’ll definitely be pleased.

You begin play aboard an airplane, flying to who-knows-where. As you look through your belongings and a voice over plays, the plane suddenly goes in to a nosedive and crashes in the middle of nowhere. Or does it? After struggling to the surface, the game play officially beings as you work your way in to what will soon be known to you as the underwater city of Rapture.

BioShock for the PS3 Confirmed?

Thursday, May 22nd, 2008 by Zach Potts

We all know this has been talked about when BioShock was such a big hit for the XBOX 360 a couple years back and hints on the coding of the game give gamers an insight that a PS3 version of the game is coming. However, 2K Games and Take Two Interactive denied this allegation and rumor so the news about BioShock coming for the PS3 died.

Just this morning, a rumor in the latest issue of UK’s PSM magazine have the game featured on the front page. CVG.co.uk have stated that screenshots and a preview of impressions of the game will be featured in the magazine.

Now, could the BioShock PS3 version of the game be better than its predecessors?
