Welcome back to Rapture. Paradise reborn.
Deep within the ruined undersea city of Rapture, your beloved Little Sister, Eleanor, awaits your return. As her Big Daddy, you protected her from a world of insanely selfish adults, now you must shield her again from those who demand that everything must be shared.
Ten years after the events of BioShock, Rapture has fallen under the control of a collectivist cult who plan to transform Eleanor into a genetically-engineered messiah, who will put an end to individuality forever. To save her, you must deploy a unique combination of shooting, role-play and stealth as you rampage through Rapture’s leaking halls to confront her captors.
Whether you choose to forgive those who threaten Eleanor or wreak vengeance upon them, remember, she is always watching and will follow your example.
Embark on an intense journey through one of the most disturbing fictional worlds ever created in this hauntingly imaginative sequel to BioShock.
Become the Big Daddy and unleash the raw power of Rapture’s most feared inhabitant against deadly new enemies such as Brute Splicers and the vengeful Big Sisters.
Dual wield your abilities: fire powerful weapons with your right hand while deploying gene-altering plasmids with your left.
Choose whether to adopt Little Sisters and protect them from splicers, or harvest them for the genetic material they carry.
Explore the sea bed as a Big Daddy and view Rapture’s breathtaking architecture from the outside.

Playing right after the first one, I've seen where it's improved, and where it has improved. To start, the combat is very entertaining in comparison to many games one would come across today! Shredding baddies with a drill sounds sinister in concept, but in reality, is still pretty bad but fun nonetheless. I personally found the story far from boring, and really enjoyed the game as a whole. Up until the bitter end. From playing the game for more than 20 minutes, you would be surprised to see the population of rapture has not been in decline since your awakening. As there seems to be no shortage of enemies anywhere. In terms of where the game fails: -at some point the game ends, and you're left wanting more.
Being dissapointed by the first BioShock, this second game changed my mind for good. It's not like it adds a lot, but it's way more entertained and little sisters add a lot of value. They now feel more 'alive', in the first one they seem like... dolls, like they're all the same character. In this one, you play as a Big Daddy, and I loved that. Visually, the game takes place in Rapture so it really looks like the first one a lot. Claustrophobic spaces, dark ambience, nice game!
Bioshock 2 is also a FPS very focused on stories, like the first game. The game has many innovations compared to its predecessor, the ambiance is pretty much the same despite the most detailed and beautiful graphics. The game has a prologue that occurs before Jack's descent into Rapture (in Bioshock), but actually takes place after the events of its predecessor. The player is now in the skin of a Big Daddy is separated from its Little Sister, and will do anything to have her back. Of course, the plot is not so simple, in Bioschock 2 occur several revelations of the Bioshock universe and there are new characters and enemies, such as Big Sisters, Brute Splicers and the Crawler splicers. So it is interesting the player seeking to learn more about the history of Bioshock 2 on the internet before you start playing. The weapons of the game are different from the previous, but plasmids are virtually the same. The gameplay had minor modifications, since now that the player is in the skin of a Big Daddy. Now you can use plasmids and weapons simultaneously (one in each hand), giving a different dynamic battles. Another change is that the player can be attacked while hack something. The game has multiple endings and what determines the final are the choices the player in the campaign, but Bioshock 2 has a wider range of choices that Bioshock, so end up having more different end. The differences between Bioshock 2 and its predecessor are more related to the plot, the game itself is very similar. I recommend this game for those who like games based on a well thought out plot and complex and for those who liked the first game.
