This style of music just puts me in kind of a neutral mood.

I like to play this as I get ready in the morning, paint, work or just want to relax.

The songs -- most older standards -- fit the game perfectly.

It shouldn't be hard to decide to buy this or not. You get what you pay for. If you like this kind of music, it's a buy you can make with no regrets. The licensed music used in Bioshock 2 is just as good as the songs used in the first. Also, the few extra dollars for the 'Special Edition' are well worth the six extra tracks, especially because you get Django Reinhardt's version of 'La Mer', a really fantastic tune that "Beyond the Sea" is based on and is also used in the original Bioshock.

My only gripe is that Garry Schyman's orchestral soundtrack to Bioshock 2 has not been made available for purchase. Since this soundtrack is called "The Official Soundtrack", I doubt that there even WILL be a release of Schyman's original score. Why do I have to buy a $100 Special Edition of the game to get it? Dumb move, 2K.

Nonetheless, my review is of this licensed soundtrack, and it doesn't disappoint. 5 stars.

I felt like I was in Rapture listening to the songs. If I closed my eyes I coud see the ruined City at the bottom of the ocean and the halls inside it.

My nephew introduced me to the game Bioshock 2 during a recent visit. While watching him play is entertaining, I'm afraid I don't have the patience for many of the newer games -- though I do try. (I did just purchase the game).

Regardless, after watching him play and listening to the music, I decided I had to purchase the soundtrack. Odd, as I typically associate soundtracks with television shows and movies -- not video games, but well worth it. The songs -- most older standards -- fit the game perfectly.

Watch somebody play the game or play it yourself. Be impressed at how seamlessly the music fits into the action/story/plot. And then make the purchase. You will not be disappointed.

I'm a metal head with a love of many different styles including classical and techno. I never knew I could love this style.

I started playing Fallout and immediately thought I was going to hate the music. I didn't take me long to get used to it and eventually love it. Try finding a Fallout soundtrack. They don't exist. So people told me about Bioshock. They said the music was quite similar. So I bought it. Money well spent. This style of music just puts me in kind of a neutral mood.

Granted there are many cd collections on amazon of this genre with far more songs, but that should not turn you from this soundtrack. This compilation is well thought out and brilliantly put together.

I love the 40's Art Deco music that perfectly fits the game. If you are a fan of the game, this is a nice addition. If you don't know the game, the music is still recognizable and fun throwback to a different time period. A more creepy yet optimistic time.
