“Bioshock 2 takes place ten years after the events of the first game. I’ll keep this review spoiler -free for both games for those who are still playing through Bioshock due to various Steam sales, but allow me to say that things haven’t settled down since we last saw the underwater world of Rapture. Everyone is still breathing, you see lumbering riveters repairing damage to windows and other structures, and the Splicers are still hunting for ADAM and coming into contact with the Little Sisters and their hulking Big Daddy escorts. It’s a constant fight for survival, and as the frequent scenes of death prove, most are not successful.”

There are any number of gamers in Rapture right now, both emotionally and virtually, as the sequel to BioShock hits the stores. If you have been hiding with the rock crabs, then you won’t know that BioShock 2 puts you in the boots of the original Big Daddy in Rapture 10 years after the events of the first game took place. There are still Little Sisters, but now some of them have grown up with a bad attitude and an armour suit and are looking to make your life miserable. Seeing as how you are in the biggest, baddest diving suit ever you can expect to see a more close up view of the exterior of the city of Rapture since drowning is the least of your worries. If you haven’t picked it up yet you can read about Ars Technica’s thoughts on the game here.
