If you have been wondering whether or not to buy BioShock 2 when it is released tomorrow no doubt you will want to check out some reputable reviews. In this article we will link you to some detailed reviews and make you aware of good and bad points of the BioShock sequel.
The original BioShock for Xbox 360 scored a metascore of 96, at the moment BioShock 2 for the 360 has a metascore of 90. The original for PS3 scored a metascore of 94, BioShock 2 currently has a metascore of 91.
BioShock 2 is set around 10 years later than the previous game, apparently a monster has been snatching little girls and taking them to “the undersea city of Rapture”, I think you will agree that this sets up for a very interesting storyline.
‘PlayStation: The Official Magazine (US)’ state that “This is one of the best games you’ll ever play” and the “Official Xbox Magazine” state that “You will be utterly absorbed”.
For the Xbox 360 version be sure to check out IGN’s review and GamePlanet’s review, for the PS3 version be sure to check out IGN’s review and 3DJuegos’ review.

All in all scoring a metascore of 90/91 proves that the game is a huge success, it is not a unique game, however it does improve on the solid foundations set by the original BioShock.
