Just Finished: Bioshock 2 [as part of Bioshock The Collection] (PS4)

Well this was unexpected. Bioshock 2 is a sequel that does not stray too far from the original game. It feels like an extended remix of its predecessor. The game is pretty straightforward and didn't give me as hard a time as the first one. Part of the reason could be that I was just so use to the mechanics at this point. The story is not as strong as the first game although the father-daughter story line has touching moments. The game feels significantly shorter. Perhaps because the original release of Bioshock 2 included online multiplayer they felt as if they could make the single player shorter. In any case I was not able to try the multiplayer as part of the remaster. There are a few quality of life improvements, the most noticeable being that the hacking minigame was streamlined. I got the mixed evil ending because I harvested most of the Little Sisters but spared the key enemies that you could have killed. I'm glad I sacrificed the little sister because protecting them while they harvest Adam was tedious and there was no way I was going to pad the experience with such drudgery. Towards the end of the game you start to feel quite powerful with your upgraded weapons and plasmids but then the game ends quite suddenly. The atmosphere and lore behind Rapture is still top notch. I did not use the drill much as the Big Daddy. This was a solid sequel but not too ambitious. Bioshock Infinite awaits...
