Bioshock 2 Pros:
- A tighter, more coherent story, with a conclusion that’s much more satisfying than its predecessor—and not reliant on a gimmicky twist for its impact
- Interesting new areas of Rapture that help flesh out its backstory and offer some new gameplay wrinkles, as well (like venturing outside in your Big Daddy suit)
- The ability to dual-wield plasmids and weapons streamlines the combat, allowing for more tense and hectic encounters
- Surprisingly polished online multiplayer that is clever, inventive, and fun
Bioshock 2 Cons:
- It isn’t Bioshock 1
